We stayed in the West Wing, because the East Wing was booked out. This hotel is well located on the slopes. Ski gear hire is available. The rooms are basic, though clean and warm.
However, the food and drink offerings are wholly inadequate and the service is lacklustre. There is an average Chinese restaurant and a canteen not unlike what you might expect at a boarding school. At the time we visited we were not permitted to use the restaurants in the South Wing or the East Wing. In some ways all of this was s good thing, because there are actually good eating places 20 minutes walk down the road (through snow). The eating places in town are much better and substantially cheaper.
For those that care: there is no bar, the staff have only very limited English and rooms are serviced only every three days. Oh, and there are no double rooms on offer.
