This is a very special find in Verbier. Wonderful, cosy apartment with everything you need to cook your own meal if you can tear yourself away from the delights of the cafe below. Furnished tastefully with extremely comfortable king size bed and soft bed linen. Fluffy white towels and luxury shampoo and soap in bathroom. Boot room downstairs and the walk to the ski lift is only a few minutes and takes you right to the top of Verbier, missing the queues in the morning. There is a supermarket right next door and the ski hire shop very near giving a discount. The staff were so helpful providing delicious meals and even making you a packed lunch if required.

This business is owned by a delightful English family who have skied here for many years and have put a lot of thought into making this a special place to stay. They also organise extreme sports activities for the brave!

A real find in Verbier as extremely good value for money. We have just spent a week here and will be back.

“Perfect place for a family in Verbier”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

La Ruinette is a charming family run hotel just at the steps of Verbier. We had wonderful 4 days there this week. Comfortable, big, clean rooms. Very friendly stuff. Cosy little Cafe serving home style meals -- which for us were probably the best during our stay in Verbier! My 14-years old son had an unforgettable life experience paragliding with Stu (one of the hotel owners and among the best world gliders). We really look forward to come back and highly recommend this hotel to everybody.

“Stunning Views, Wonderful Service, I[--]ll be coming back”
Reviewed October 5, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Located only 3 mins from the train station, La Ruinette was really easy to find. It's close to bars and resturants and more importantly the bubble lift up the hill.
Customer service was exceptional, The management of the property did everything to make my stay worth while.
The apartments are clean and finished to a very high standard, The beds are amazing! Great value for your money, I was shocked to find I could stay in a place to this high standard in Vierbier for this price.
Some of the things I liked best was the incredible food and coffee offered in the cafe on the ground floor, always cool music playing and a perfect place to get the morning manditory coffee (however you like it!) and crossiant as you watch the world go by. There is a great relaxed atmosphere in the cafe and it seemed pretty busy when I got there. If you are in the area the curry night on a Friday is a must, it gets pretty busy so book early.

If you are looking for somewhere reasonably priced away from the crowds (but close enough if you wanted a night out), with stunning views and great service, and some of the best food on the hill. La Ruinette is the place to stay.
