We stayed at the Club Hotel Vallee Blanche in March 05 and were very dissappointed. Having stayed in another 3* Crystal hotel we expected the same but this was not the case. The rooms are a nice size and the bathrooms have recently been renovated but have never seen a duster or polish. The brochure states that this is a 5 mins walk from the ski lifts but it doesn't tell you that this is down 2 steep flights of stairs. Getting back up with 4 sets of skis, ski boots, poles and a buggy is something approaching a nightmare! The hotel virtually comes to a standstill between 9.30am and 4.00pm when they expect everyone to be out skiing and you even have to get your own keys from reception as there are long periods when no-one is present. The food was also disappointing in comparison to our last crystal hotel. However the kids' club staff were great and Ally and Dom (the Managers) did everything they could to help make our stay enjoyable - unfortunately even with their help there is no way this hotel warrants 3*!
