“Simple dorm style accomodations”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

We stayed here on our Walkers Haute Route hike in August. The place was mostly empty. It was clean, had wireless internet in the lounge, simple breakfast, and showers/toilets down the hall. Good grocery store within 5 minutes of walking as well as ATM and post office - ask for directions at the train station, the tourism info lady spoke English. The host at Camp spoke very little English but enough for us to get by. Clean linens were provided for you to make your own bed. Rooms locked. Limited check-in time from 5:30-7pm only!

If you can't afford to stay in Verbier and you don't mind very basic accommodation and service, this place is for you. I have graded it 'poor' which may not be fair as this place does offer a budget option if nothing else is available. The value is fair but that does not change the fact that this place is poor.

We stayed here just before New Year for 1 night as it was the only option we could find willing to take us for 1 night at this time of year. It was fine. We slept most of the night, it was clean, warm and available.

Location... Housed in the same building as the cable car that takes you up to Verbier, it is very convenient. Lots of parking etc. Being where it was, it did get noisy from 4.30am onwards as the men who clean the roads and prepare the carpark met to enjoy a fag before starting all their machines to remove the snow.

Rooms... Clean, spacious, warm. You have to make your own beds and remove the sheet each morning before leaving. For a group of friends looking for a budget Verbier option, this could be it.

Service... Oh dear! This really depends on who is there at the time. Booking via email etc was well handled. Checking in was OK. Breakfast service was terrible... the old lady employed to refill the bread rolls and top up the hot water could not cope. She just stood there looking dazed and confused. I actually felt sorry for her as she really was not capable of being left alone.

Food... The breakfast was none existent (see note before) as the lady in charge could not arrange refills of bread, cheese etc. No other meals are offered so if you stay here for a few days you will need to find an alternative for dinner (presumably resulting in a hefty bill each evening in Verbier which defeats the purpose of staying in such budget accommodation).
