“Amazing room!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

A perfect location for the ski lift, only a few minutes walk, and right next door to a lovely restaurant! We booked a family duplex room for 4 sharing adults, and were very pleasantly surprised by the size, two bathrooms, two floors and a lovely balcony with views over the mountain. Excellent service, a very good wellness suite downstairs, and great free nibbles at wine o'clock! The only downside was breakfast, poor choice, not very fresh and overall very disappointing considering the rest of the facilities.

We returned to Boton d'Or for a second family ski holiday over Xmas and New year. Again we had a fantastic stay. The hotel really is exceptional, topped only by the staff who really go out of their way to look after you and make sure that you have the best holiday possible. To John and the staff at Boton d'Or, thank you again for making our holiday so special - you guys are fantastic.

Just returned from a one week stay at the Boton d'or for our family ski trip.. First time in this hotel, and will definitely return... The hotel is beautifully designed, and extremely comfortable...loads of space in our family suite for us and our 2 children.... The beds are super comfortable, and we made full use of the hotel jacuzzis.. Breakfasts were lovely, with a wide variety to suit children and adults, and the staff were so welcoming. The lounge area is very relaxing, and lovely snacks are set out every evening for free. The free wifi didn't really reach to our room, but we were happy to sit in the lounge to get access there. The ski room was excellent for storing and drying all your kit very evening, and the 5 minute walk to the ski school was the same distance as from the Planibel Apartments we had previously stayed in. The Boton d'or is definitely our preferred choice now though for accommodation, and we will be sure to return next time.. La Thuile is so perfect for children and intermediate skiers like us... Can't wait for next year!

Just got back from our ski trip to La Thuile. Previously stayed at the Planibel apartments however thought we would give this hotel a try. What a good decision, Ideally located close to the gondola and a short walk to the village centre, a very warm welcome from John and his team, a cosy warm and very clean bedroom, a beautiful and relaxing lounge area where we felt totally at home with a glass of local wine and complimentary canapés each evening, in the mornings we enjoyed a great breakfast buffet with plenty of continental choice and great coffee. We used the spa each evening where we were basically the only people there enjoying the jacuzzi, sauna and relaxation room which were all appreciated after a hard day on the slopes.
Nothing was ever too much trouble, customer satisfaction was obviously very high on John and his teams priorities. A big thank you and we will definitely return next year.

We spent 7 nights at this hotel during Christmas and new year holiday and we could not be happier. The rooms were very charming and comfortable. The staff was fantastic. Great location to skiing and spend quality time with the family.

Room Tip: The suites are a great value for the space and a good option for a family of two.

Stayed here for a ski vacation a week at the start of the year.
Walking distance away from the lifts.
Nice, friendly staff.
Magnetic keys will open the door from a 5th try.
Walls are so thin that you can actually participate in your neighbors' conversations.
The hotel doesn't own a kitchen, which is odd, but nonetheless, hence selection of food available for breakfast is rather poor. Some catered from outside fried hams, stripes of dry omelets and sausage, tired looking bananas, some basic pastry and cold cuts. Needs major improvement here.
Rooms are clean.
Bed mattresses are firm.
Showers are recently upgraded.
Ok for a one off. Not fantastic. You'd want to shop around for your next visit.
Could easily be fixed.

Just back from a week at Boton d'Or. The staff is absolutely excellent and did everything they could to make us feel comfortable and welcome. With a very personal touch. The hotel is very close to the slopes (very large resort, you never ski on the same place) at a nice 10 minutes walk from the village centre. The Spa is excellent, clean and not very busy (you will need to book it in advance). The rooms are modern and roomy enough. Breakfast is also good (try the home made cakes). A wonderful hotel in a typical Italian ski resort
