We booked a cheap january ski trip and so we weren't expecting luxury however, Hotel Serre Palas is a real gem!!It is close to the Diable lift and to bus stops for skiers - its well within board boots walking distance to the main gondola. The hotel is small, family run and very friendly. The decor is homely and very clean and the showers are fab - strong with loads of hot water. Breakfasts were more than enough and good restaurants were nearby. We had a double en-suite room but family rooms are available and we would thoroughly recommend staying here.
