Great place in excellent location close to gondola (this is not a noise issue - however what you need to be aware of is if your room looks onto public highway they clear the pathways with a noisy machine at 4am!). This is not a huge issue - you are after all in a 'ski resort'. Earplugs are provided should you need them - if you are exhausted from skiing (which is why you are here in the winter then you won't hear it!)
Room perfect for skiers - fully equipped kitchen all necessary gadgets. We had a problem with a blocked toilet - within minutes this was fixed. Problem with Internet connection overnight but this was a resort thing - wifi in whole village resort - this was a great help.
Hot tubs never full as there are 4 - pool looks great but never tried it!
Plenty of restaurants in village - no need to go downtown however good to get out and about. There is a very reliable bus service never far away, however The Lodge offers courtesy service - again never had to wait more than 5 mins for a lift that includes being collected from your chosen venue. Short walk to the gondola to get you on the slopes - steps up to it a bit of a pull bearing in mind the altitude...
Lakanuki for après ski - down the street from The Lodge - great atmosphere and gorgeous shrimp dish.
Would definitely return here- ticks all the boxes.
