Everything is within literally 5 min walk from Crystal Lodge (Ski lift, Bars, Coffee, Restaurant, Grocery/Pharmacy). The staff were friendly and helpful - in particular ski valet. The hot tub, though a bit small, is a relaxing way to wind down after a day at the slopes. The hotel feels new, clean and overall comfortable. So why is it not 5/5? The standard rooms are very small, not sure fitting a king-sized bed made much sense. Also they face the village stroll with all the bars which means it can get a little noisy in the early hours. Wi-Fi was slow and unreliable so it's a bit annoying just when I am trying to decide where to go for dinner on TA!
All in all good value for money if location is important and you want something decent but not luxurious. Whilst I don't regret staying here, personally I'd go somewhere else on my next visit. Not that I don't like Crystal Lodge itself, but I don't mind sacrificing location for bigger rooms and peace at night. If you are worried about long walks in ski boots, some ski rentals next to the ski lifts offer free storage.More
