I have recently stayed at this hotel with a friend and their family. It was a real last minute trip and rather cheap so i was a bit worried and suspicious of what was to come but i was completely blown away.
I appoligise if this is long but this hotel deserves it.
On arriving at the you are greeted by a porter who takes all your bags up to your room. Once in the rooms they are a tad small but perfectly adequate for two people. There was plenty of wardrove space and although the water was varied with temperature the bathroom was really clean and tidy.
I was staying with a female friend and between the both of us we weren't that tidy (i know, i know, shame on us), but we would arrive back everyday after skiing to find all our clothes were neatly packed away and the room imaculate. My highlight of every day would be when i would go to bed and find my night wear neatly folded under my pillow.
Although i was actually the youngest resident staying at the hotel and just 17 there was still plenty to do with a fitness suite and games room. As a 17 year old boy i am slightly addicted to facebook and could recieve the free internet from my room but with a stronger connection in the bar.
You would pick your food from the menu which had been translated into english for us in the morning. There were usually 3 options, with me as a fussy eater, finding plenty to eat. You would have a 4 course meal that was truely beautiful. For desert you would have a home-made sweet.
This was my only criticism of the entire experience, although it did provide many laughs. The tall waiter would have over and orally list that nights deserts menu. Although he was trying and for that i commend him. He had learnt certain words from the deserts menu. This meant you would be given the list of; Meringue , orange chocolate cake, cheescake and bread and butter.
Sadly when ordering this desert you would never come back with what you'd expect. For example the meringue was actually chocolate angel delight with small peices of meringue in. A similar problem with the choclate cake in which you had a choclate cake with marmalade spead over the top.
Maybe it was just because of the company but i thought this hotel was clearly one of the best i've stayed in.
