I was a bit wary as to the standards of the hotel when reading previous reviews but I have to say that they were all crushed when I arrive at the Hotel. It would be foolish to expect luxuries and flashy facilities for the price I paid but this was excellent value for money.
The rooms were comfortable enough, the batroom was adequate and the cleanliness was good. True, some areas could do with a bit of refurbishment but they are perfectly acceptable as they are now. Contrary to what was siad in some reviews, I did not find the room or the communal areas (bar, restauranr, lobby) to be too hot. All that was needed accasionally was to open the window of the room a bit for a while.
Food was also good, nothing fancyfull, just wholesome, well cooked meals. Pasta was available every day as well as 2 meat dishes, 1 fish dish, chipes and vegetable. Breakfast was also acceptable albeit in a continental way. Coffee, juices, cereals, yogurth, fruit, bread, cold meats and cheese were always plentyful.
However, the best of this hotel is the staff. Everyone and I mean everyone was friendly, helpful, atenttive and willing to make our stay as pleasant as possible.
All in all, a great choice if what you want is a nice, comfortable hotel when you come back from the slopes. Mind you, you need a car to get to the lifts although that did not bother us at all. I would highly recommend this hotel to those who are on a budget and do not expect but comfort.
