“Could be much better...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We stayed at the hotel from 27/12-1/1, 2 parents with 3 children(age 3.5 - 5 - 8).
The room was good, except that the kitchen was not equipt with ANYthing ! The cleaning of the room was good.
No bar or lounge for tired skiers wanting to relax with a beer or a drink after a day in the slopes.
The resturant only had 7 tables when the hotel have 27 rooms (i think). Meny was ok.
The room service was from 1600-1845 and from 2145-2200 hrs. Not flexible at all !
Kids meny was terrible, only 2 different choices ! No playroom or offers for the children at all.
The breakfast was bad ! no apple juice, no hot milk(they called it hot....NOT!), no fruite, no vegetables, no boiled eggs, no fried eggs, no bread. The ham selection was good i have to say.
The ski lockers room was ok, but they should have put a shelf on top as you have no room for the ski boots after you put the skies in. If you have a 6person room, the ski locker is the same size as a ski locker for a double room ? No space....
Shuttle bus in the morning was good, but not no service in the afternoon, even when the bus/guy was at/in the hotel.
The outdoor pool not really heated enough....still froze my balls of...
The staff was polite, but not professional ! F ex, new years eve, they had no clue what was going on, or where the fireworks was or where to go etc etc......i just arrived to alpe d'huez you see....good comment !
The hotel has good (building) standard and is fresh. I do prefer this vs location. Its about 10 min walk to the slopes.
This hotel has potential to be much better. Its a few small things they should change as breakfast, equip the rooms with kitchen, polite and openminded service staff, kids/child friendly ,shuttle in the afternoon, flexible with food/dinner/etc and a place to relax with beer/drink.
The room price was acceptable, but all in all I would not call this a 4 star hotel.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with children, the 1st floor (ground floor) is a good idea, because you can o...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Lovely hotel. Modern, spacious rooms, excellent dinner. We were part of a group staying there as La Marmotte weekend in July 2012. Eventhough the outside amenity space was not quite finished, it is nestled among the trees and next to a running stream. Not that difficult to find and in the winter would be near Auris. It is difficult to comment on the food as we were part of the group and a fixed menu. Contenential breakfast was plenty. There were no complaints about the dinner which was all locally sourced.
