Top location with a short way to the center with shopping, cafes, train station and an incredible selection of ski slopes and trails. The hotel has a wonderful atmosphere and the hotel staff are friendly and service minded.

Family ski holiday, 2 adults and 2 young adults. 2 rooms for a week. The hotel is very welcoming and full of history. Large lobby and lounges. Interesting art and antiques all around the hotel. The bedrooms (at least the ones we had) were quite small. The beds were fine but felt somewhat soft and small for some of our party. Rooms otherwise comfortable and clean. The food was great. One in our party is vegan, and they went out of their way to accommodate him. Most evenings they serve a huge buffet for dinner but our vegan had lovely food made just for him. Two evenings a week they have a la carte, but again they were flexible if something was not to everyone’s taste. Breakfast was the same grand affair, more food and variety than we knew what to do with. The hotel has a nice pool and sauna, children’s play area and table tennis. In the summer they have outdoor tennis courts. There is a shuttle bus taking people to the ski lifts in the morning and afternoon. It’s not even 5 minutes to the nearest lift. Once on the lift one can get to all other lifts and pistes on that side of the valley. We stayed there pretty much all week as this is the sunny side. There is a shuttle every ten minutes taking people back and forth to the other side for skiing if desired. We skied back to the hotel at the end of the day. A track takes one down to the side of the hotel and near the ski room. It wasn’t entirely clear where to go so we got a bit muddled on the first day but it was easy as anything once we sussed it. Sofie’s cafe, bar and small deli is attached to the hotel and can be accessed either from the lobby or outside. They have great food if one wants something to eat outside the hotel’s mealtimes, and also great coffee. The staff was genuinely super nice all around, but we must mention our friendly Portuguese waiter Gill in the restaurant. Service with a smile and a skip in his step and and funny &friendly banter 😊

The hotel feels very authentic and not part of a big chain. The facilities for children are great. There’s a play area with soft play, air hockey, table football and table tennis. It’s right by the restaurant so kids can play before or after dinner. The pool is a good size and lovely and warm after a days skiing. We stayed over New Year so they had a good entertainment planned for the kids. All of the staff were very friendly and keen to help. Disliked · The hotel decor is a bit tired.
