The Les Aiglons is well situated for the ski bus as its stops right outside the hotel.
The lobby and bar area and modern but sparse.
The suite which we were originally to be charged 500 euros was not worth anything near that amount.
I rang a week before as I had seen other peoples reviews and I was convinced I was overpaying.
They agreed to reduce it to 450 a night with a hlaf bottle of champagne as a gift.
The room is bsic with brown shagpile carpet on all living all floors except the bathroom.
This I can imagine hides a multitude of sins.
The walls are stippled and painted but layer upon layer of dust is visible.
Our room also smelt of cigarette smoke and so all soft furnishings needed to be changed.
the room is heated by a wall mounted electric fire which deposited brown dust up the walls and cobwebs on the ceiling.The rooms on the website did not resemble ours at all.
The toilet is separate from the toilet and the bathroom is good.
The beds were also comfortable.
Coffee and tea making was basic and the uht milk constantly curdled in the boiled water.
No mini bar.
The hotel breakfast is expensive for 15 euros.There is bacon,boiled egg,scrambled egg local sausage and small potato cakes aswell as the usual cereals and croissants etc.
The hotel bar is very expensive at 12 euros for a small vodka coke.It also closed at eleven most of the time and when we asked to be seved after that time we were tols the staff had gone home.
Only when we persisted were we served 2 coffees.
The boot room is also poor with no heated boot hanger as a consequence your boots are still wet inside from the previous days skiing and the also dont fit enough equipment in.
The outside pool isnt warm enough to relax in it is at 28degrees which means you need to swim to keep warm.
The hot tub is ok but only sits 5 people.
I didnt use the steam room.
All in all our room bill of 3150 euros was robbery.
I feel if I had been charged 2000 it would have been excessive.
The reception staff are friendly but that can only go so far.
There is a good pub virtually next door called Jekly and Hide.
The best restaurant/bar is The Caves.Great service but a little pricey on food side at 25 euros for chicken in mushroom sauce.
The is a good ski renatl place opposite called skiloc which give 20% discount to guests.
Munchies is also good aswell as The Monchu for traditional meals.
A great bar/restaurant is Elevation which had good food at good prices.
Also if you like real ale there is a micro brewery that has 4 of its own brands and does great bar food called MCB.
The skiing is good but challenging and there is alot of bus transferring to do.
Also the Luge ride at Les Pennards is greal for all the family.
