I have just arrived back from a weeks family holiday and the check in was a nightmare.We arrived at midday and were told our room would be ready at 2.30 by rep when we got to hotel we were told 3.30 pm. When we went to collect key we were than told 5.30 pm. We had been travelling since 2.00am the previous day and with 2 young children this was totally unaccetable.
I then went to the rep to see if she could help out but the reception staff totally ingored her. They were very rude and when she finally got someones attention they responsed by saying that check in was after 5.00pm as their policy.However, all Italians were checkin in, it was complete chaos and when they were questioned again all I got was a shrug of the shoulders.The hotel room was basic and very noisy, skiing was great for all. However be careful to find out where the closest ski/boot locker is located as rep advised us on the wrong location which meant we were out of pocket as they would not return our money. The town itself is lovely and with plenty of amentities and is worth a visit but not at this hotel. I felt discriminated against by reception staff as they were totally rude and unhelpful however the rest of the hotel staff i.e bar staff and entertainers were very nice and accomadating but reception staff enough to put anyone off .
