Stayed for a long weekend at the end of half term week when not much was available. Booked through the (excellent) Ski2. The hotel is clean, well maintained, well run - but with just a little more care and attention it would be a real gem.
For example our room was OK, but felt rather like a broken sauna - unbroken panelling of wood on ceiling, walls and parquet floors where some simple art on the walls, a couple of rugs, some nicer bedding would have made it feel more homely while still being classic Valdostana.
The Italian obsession with bright lighting in public extends to the bar and dining room - again, some softer lighting, a lit fire, a little investment in Alpine gewgaws would have made it so much more welcoming.
Then, after dinner, a group of Dutch guests (normally so socially adept) insisted on turning on the TV in the bar, which was right behind our chairs, so we felt compelled to leave.
Staff are excellent; Dani the proprietoress is friendly and on top of the running of the hotel; food is plentiful and carefully made, if obviously created to a pretty tight budget.
The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the Crest lift, and (roughly) 15 minutes from the Frechey funicular. Great if you leave your skis at a ski shop near the lift base, but a problem if you want to switch between lifts.
The village is pretty, with some good food shops and a couple of good restaurants.
