Not much more to add to my one sentence review. Genuinely happy and very much impressed with the standard which was exemplary. The restaurant was truly wonderful and the staff achieved the perfect mix of being passionate, helpful and welcoming. A superb holiday with memories of a lifetime and the skiing was the icing on the cake. Thank you hotel du tourmalet!
