The hotel is literally adjacent to the slopes but quite a walk to the ski hire shop so be warned, you'll have an uphill trek back to the hotel with heavy ski gear if you don't have access to transport. The hotel itself is definitely in need of a major overhaul if it ever wants to cater for couples or families, I'd have checked straight out if that was my category. Luckily, I was part of a large scout trip and considering most of those using the hotel are large groups of secondary/college school age children, then it fits the bill perfectly as the hotel interior/exterior is on par with Blackpool's stag & hen B&B's! From a catering point of view, all the food on offer was perfectly edible, a little heavy on the seasoning though & it could be difficult to ascertain what animal protein it was. A large selection of salad was always available and you need to be fond of pasta as it's served every day for lunch. The bar was stocked plentiful and the measurements were very generous, plenty of snacks/nibbles available too. The staff were neither friendly nor unfriendly but despite my smiles and greetings, I never received proper eye contact or a smile in return, especially from the staff who served the meals. I did have a pleasant exchange with the owner who is visiting England shortly to brush up on his language skills. The swimming pool needs attention and during my visit the jacuzzi was empty as in no water in it at all and the day I chose to use sauna/steam room, it wasn't in action. The Ski Instructors speak very little English and most of the youngsters in our party completely failed to understand what was being said to them, so they progressed a lot slower than expected. We definitely all felt that we'd had value for our money as the rate of the trip was a bargain, as the saying goes.....you get what you pay for!
