I last stayed here 7 years ago and on that basis, we reserved rooms for an extended family group including a small child and a teenager with lactose intollerance. Overall I found its standards had significantly dropped since my last stay.
The decor is certainly a little "loud" (bright blues and orange) and distinctly 1980's. It is a very clean hotel, fresh feleing , light and airy. All the staff I met are pleasant. Do not expect fluent English however as this is mostly a hotel used by French and German speakers. It has a pleasant bar area, and lounge. Internet connection is free but only available in the lounge area not in the bedrooms. The rooms are not large but VERY clean and with enough room to hang clothes. The bath towels are on the small side. The beds are comfortable but again, traditionally a double bed is two singles pushed together. So if you like a romantic "huddle" in the middle of a double bed, you wont get one here in these beds!!! Some rooms have a balcony. Most have just a shower. In keeping with most continental hotels there are no coffee or tea making facilities in the room. (after all they want to sell you coffee and tea not give it away for free!!!) The Spa, sauna ( regrettably everyone seems to go naked in this one which meant I for one did not use it even with my costume on. There are some things I do NOT want to see on my holiday!!) and pool are absoutely fantastic. It is a great place with a sun bathing scenic view room with sun loungers above it. The pool has a Whirlpool, jacuzzi style stainless steel under water sitting or lying seats, water fountains etc. Arm bands for children can be loaned for free. Towelling robes can be hired. There is also a very large play room with football table, pool table, childrens/baby corner. Books for adult borrowing and reading are in the lounge. There is a welcome drink evening once a week and a weekly gala dinner.
The negatives. Having informed the hotel of my daughters dairy allergies, we had to work hard ALL week to remind them of this at EACH meal. Where a course had dairy in it, no different meal had been made for her, she was just not given anything to replace it or given a bowel of slad with the diary bits taken out!!! This time for example, she was offered only fruit for pudding each time. When we last visited they made her a completely different meal each time which was fantastic.
Charging us 5SF for a jug of ordinary tap water at supper is utterly outrageous!!! I do feel this hotel is now into "rip off" tourist mode. I found by the time you had "hired" a key to get into and out of the ski room, "hired" a towelling robe to go down to the pool, been charged to drink ta water with your meal, been offered VERY expensive prices for quite ordinary plonk and eaten a 4 course dinner each night which was very ordinary, the hotel started to lose some of its old. appeal. BUT I'd still stay here for the pool and its position in the village alone.
