Not long back from an excellent week's skiing in Cervinia. We stayed in the lovely Astoria Hotel which was delightful. It is ideally situated beside the gondola to the main slopes and given good conditions it is possible to ski back to the gondola station and walk up the stairs to the hotel. The rooms were comfortable if a bit tight in passing the end of the beds to the bathroom. A test of sobriety at night. Towels were changed daily and the room was left clean and spotless each day. Food was excellent and the Christmas Gala Dinner with its endless courses and variety was memorable if somewhat over the top! many guests bailed out before the turkey course finally arrived and really it was impossible to do the whole meal justice! But that is the Italian tradition and we gave the chef a well-deserved round of applause at the end. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to be helpful. On our last day when my wife twisted her knee on the slopes and had to go to the local Trauma Clinic (try to avoid!) they even sent a car to pick us up. So full marks to the hotel for their welcome and hospitality.
The skiing was great but spoilt somewhat by high winds that are a feature of the resort and which shortened our trip to Zermatt. But the pistes are kept in great shape and have some lovely long runs. We went with Crystal Ski and their reps were excellent. All in all a great package with the hotel being the crowning glory of it all.
