We stayed for a night during our cycle tour. The ski-room in the ground floor turns into a bike room during the summer. It is a secure place inside the building. Our room was tiny but ok for the price. The hotel restaurant is not operating in summer. There are only two restaurants in the village. Try to book it in advance.

Okay the good. The lounge is warm, comfortable and with my group we thoroughly enjoyed sitting here pre dinner. The room was fine, reasonable size, small shower room but it was spotless. If only there was some coffee making facility. Not so good. The food was fine. Not great but certainly not bad. If only they had told us we could have something cooked (eggs) for breakfast as we had the same every day. The owners were a mix. The female was delightful and tried very hard, very talkative and fun. The male owner was not so friendly..... but whatever I would return, it is well worth the money and great for families.

This is a good quality 3-star hotel situated about a 4-minute walk to the ski lifts that take you to Sesteriere or up to the impressive ski runs above Borgata. Yes, the hotel is a short up-gradient walk to the lifts but it’s not steep and should not cause an issue for anyone about to undertake a day’s skiing. (The very friendly ski hire shop next to the ski school near the lifts will store your skis for free if you hire from them, Inghams use them, or 2 euro a night if you want to leave your boots and skis with them over night) Borgata is not the resort to stay in if you want to participate in active Après Ski but is well situated for skiing Sestriere, Sauze d’Oulx and San Sicarario. The Hotels wooden beamed lounge and bar is comfortable and an excellent place to relax in after an active day on the slopes. The bedrooms are simply decorated with small en suites. During my stay the room was very well serviced each day with the towels, which are of quite good quality, changed half way through the week. I was pleasantly surprised that sachets of shampoo, bars of soap and moisturising cream were also provided. The internal walls of the bedrooms are I assume thin and with wooden flooring, sound can at times transfer easily between rooms, so be aware of this when playing music or having “close” discussions. WIFI with a good signal is available throughout the hotel via sign up with the resorts “Bandablu network” and its free for 1 hours use per day with a pay option if you want more. The Breakfasts provided are of your usual continental style and of good quality, except if you have a very early last day departure when lukewarm coffee and a packet of biscuits is a real let down compared to their prior days fare. Evening meals are 4 coarse, with your choice made the night before. I found the meals quite acceptable, not as boring as some prior reviewers but not as hearty as other 3-star ski hotels I have stayed in over the years. Near the ski school is a small supermarket which is good for snacks and drinks. In the Hotel a large bottle of beer was 6 Euros with a very nice bottle of red being 21 Euros expect to pay similar prices up the mountains. If coming back to ski in Sestriere I would certainly book again this pleasant friendly Hotel, in fact two of the guests that stayed the week I was there have already booked up for next year!

Disappointed with facilities on offer in this apartment which had potential to be lovely if refurbished. Cleanliness issues noticed right from the start particularly in kitchen area,which comprises of a gas hob,sink,fridge and one shelf.No toaster or microwave. Guess they want you to use the hotel restaurant, we didn't bother. Only one channel worked on the TV and Internet connection was impossible, manager/owner said it was because of the thick walls,but he seemed to have no issues because "I pay",and made no attempt to help. He did nail a piece of brown material over the bedroom's velux window,as the previous blind had not been replaced when it was damaged by previous tenants. He also cleaned the fridge with vinegar when our rep spoke with him,a deep clean was promised the next day,and eventually a shallow clean happened two days later. The shower was small with no water power and occasionally no hot water. We had a good time in Borgata, Sestriere and as we had only booked the week before,were happy to be skiing.

We often ski in Italy, and generally seek out 2/3 star, family run, smallish hotels with a half board arrangement. Banchetta seemed to fit the bill for our first ever visit to Sestriere. The welcome from owners Cesare and Christina was warm, and their two dogs (Theo, a big mountain dog puppy, and Lucy, a small terrier) were friendly if you wanted to pet them, but not intrusive if not. Other staff, particularly Salvatore in the restaurant, were equally friendly and helpful, and everybody made every effort to make our stay a success. Reception is on the first floor, reached by a broad staircase from the entrance door. (There is a ski and boot room at ground floor level with its own direct access door). Our bedroom was on the top (third) floor. There is no lift, so need to be prepared to carry bags up stairs. Our room was of a good size, with a king sized, and comfortable, double bed, with duvet. Decor was a little tired and dated, but fairly typical for this type of hotel, and not a problem. Room was warm and comfortable, and the shower room adequate. Dining room and bar/lounge area were opposite reception on the first floor. Both were big, spacious and airy, though the lounge area was slightly on the chilly side, but OK if you wore a cardigan/pullover. Drinks from the small bar area were paid for by cash rather than added to room bill, so easy to keep track of spending, and were very reasonably priced (2Euro for a pot of tea for one, 4Euro for a pot of tea for two; 3Euro for a small beer etc) especially by normal ski resort standards. The nearest ski lift was about 100m walk away. Some people have described the walk as ‘uphill’. Well barely; it was almost a level walk, just a bare uphill gradient. There were a further 3 ski lifts another 100m along, and slightly more uphill (but still not a major climb), but the easiest thing to do was take the first lift up, and have a fairly easy warm up ski run (choice of blue or easy red piste) down to the other lifts. In good snow conditions it would be possible to ski almost back to the hotel. We were a little unfortunate that this season the snow has been poor, but at least the 100m walk is downhill at the end of the day. So far, so good. Negatives? Borgata is very quiet; not a problem for us, we were quite happy to ski all day, come back to the hotel, read or play cards, relax and have dinner and a couple of drinks. However, if you’re looking for any kind of nightlife, bars, music etc ... forget it. Sestriere itself is livelier, but it’s a bus ride away. Since we didn’t bother I can’t comment on price, times and reliability of the bus service. The hotel food. It was OK. Edible, filling, but dull. Followed the expected pattern in this kind of hotel. Antipasto, choice of pasta or soup, choice of two main courses, choice of desserts/fruit (choices made each evening for the next day). However, compared to other hotels we’ve stayed in, offering this pattern, the food was not great. Normally we’d expect some kind of buffet/salad bar for the antipasto, with a good choice of fresh vegetable dishes. Not here. Breakfast buffet was very basic, with no hot options, not even eggs. Overall? Friendly, comfortable, quiet, reasonably priced, good location for skiing, but not for nightlife, adequate, but unimaginative food.
