There are very few Hotels to choose from in Avoriaz but this was great. The decor is 60's retro but with a modern twist. The hotel staff were friendly and very efficient giving us a guided tour of the hotel's amenities on arrival. this really helped getting the lay of the land. The outdoor Jacuzzi and sauna were great, just what you need after a day's skiing at no extra charge like some do. The restaurant was excellent both service and food which was cooked to perfection and just about the right selection for choice. The wine cellar is extensive and not expensive by French standards. The bar area was interesting with its different levels and never too busy.
But to offer a balanced view i must say that who ever designed the bedrooms, we had a club room, has never stayed in one with all the kit and clobber you need for skiing. Just a few hooks to hang things in the room not the bathroom would have been useful. I found the room far too small and claustrophobic, even though the bed was one of the most comfortable i have ever slept on. It is certainly ski out not so sure about the ski in. we never found a route that didn't leave us without a 150 metre walk carrying skis.
Overall i thought it was good value for money and great amenities.
