stayed here 3 times before the fixtures are basic as usual but what a difference a change in management makes me and the boys feel like we are leaving close friends rather than hotel staff forget the other reviews if you want a quiet week away this is not for you want a ski and party come here tony and...

We're sorry to hear that you had to leave your new-found friends in the Chalet Hotel Dragon, len j, and fully appreciate that it's easier to leave the hotel staff when you've not built great friendships with them. Tony, Anna and the team are doing a fantastic job and it's great to hear that you agree. We hope that we'll...

Very disappointing hotel. So much potential with perfect location, but needs some proper management. An ideal outside bar area which is not used as a bar, with broken heaters and chairs knocked over. The pub is British themed, serving largely British customers, so getting it completely wrong as I don't think anybody goes to Italy to experience a British pub....

It's disappointing that you didn't enjoy your stay at the Chalet Hotel Dragon, Joel08_13, and were not expecting a British-run establishment in an Italian resort, though this is exactly what Inghams promise in their Chalet Hotels and chalets, which differ from Inghams hotel partner properties. We've noted your comments regarding music and some aspects of the catering and will look...

Was surprised to see reviews here about the accommodation - yes the rooms are above a pub - Inghams are very clear about it - we picked it for this reason, saves going out in the cold for a drink after dinner! And yes, most pubs in any ski resort have loud music although after a hard day's skiing and...

It's great to learn that you enjoyed your recent holiday at the Chalet Hotel Dragon and benefitted from the on-site bar and excellent service from the Inghams team. We hope that we'll have the chance to welcome you again.

The best thing about the Dragon is its location. We knew it was noisy from reading reviews,we were told the music being played on a speaker outside would stop at 11pm. Not always the case. There is a disco downstairs twice a week which finishes at 2am. Take earplugs but if you forget you may find one under your bed...

Thanks for your review of the Chalet Hotel Dragon, xtravelagent007. We've noted with concern your comments about noise and some elements of housekeeping, and have referred these to our staff accordingly. It's nice to hear that you enjoyed plentiful hot water and friendly service from the team throughout your week. We hope that we might welcome you again to reassure...

I have just returned from a week booked with Inghams staying here in what they call a "chalet hotel". I would call it a pub with rooms, and a "British" theme pub at that. I wish I had stayed somewhere else because, although the staff are friendly, the food good and it is situated near one of the main chairlifts,...

It's disappointing to learn that you were rather underwhelmed with your recent experience with us in the Chalet Hotel Dragon, martinr62. We do take all feedback on board and accordingly our team in Cervinia have been made aware of your comments so that they may endeavour to address them for our future guests. Though we do run our Chalet Hotels...

We booked with Inghams and the description on their website maybe stretches the truth a little bit. The dragon is less a chalet hotel and more a pub with rooms above it. The staff were friendly, there was a good camaraderie between the guests and the rooms were small but clean. The pub downstairs could do with a face lift...

We stayed at the Dragon through Inghams at the start of March. On our wish list for our holiday were good snow, easy access to the ski lifts and a comfortable and friendly place to stay. The snow and the lift access were both great. Lovely powder snow, although snowing on a couple of days, and one of the main...

We have been to a number of Inghams/Ski Total catered chalets and this one is unique. Yes, the staff are the usual enthusiastic youngsters, keen to please but inexperienced. The food can be reasonable or sometimes a bit of a disaster, but we found the puddings exceptionally good at the Dragon. The kitchen facilities are totally inadequate for the number...

If you like skiing but prefer mixing with the British, drinking Guinness, eating a full English breakfast, having your portion sensitive food prepared by an untrained English cook in an under resourced kitchen, attempt to eat that in a small room described as “private dining” (!), listen to obnoxious music from 3.30pm to 10.30 pm daily whether you want to...
