I stayed in Sauze two years ago in Chalet Valentin, which is above the town, so was a little concerned about being below it this time. However, the location and hotel were truly fantastic.
The hotel was clean, spacious, fantastic customer service and good food. Our room was classed as a superior deluxe with ample space, large bathroom and balcony view looking at the mountains and ski lift. The hotel bar was nice with a pint of beer costing €4.50 with free nibbles and things like pizza squares for free. The lounge area around the bar was also nice with sofa's and a fire. The breakfast was simple and after a week of croissants, bread rolls, cheese, ham and hard boiled eggs you do crave something else, but I honestly couldn't complain. The evening meals were excellent and different every night - you were asked to choose what you wanted to night before from a list of two options. Starter, main and desert with an unlimited supply of bread rolls. The bar man also came down to the restaurant to take any soft drinks, wine and beer orders.
The lift station was just below the hotel and with good snow you could ski to it. Unfortunately, I had to walk to and from it which wasn't the easiest but absolutely no problem. A lot of people liked to stop for a drink by the lift station before walking up. The ski run down was very pleasant too.
If you wanted to venture into Sauze at night there was a walk up the hill, about 10 to 15 minutes, but thankfully the hotel owner, Bruno, happily dropped you off in his minibus after dinner for free. You had to walk back down afterwards or take a taxi, which I never did. One person needed to visit the pharmacy and Bruno took them there and back. The hotel also had nice packs ready for any injuries.
If I go back to Sauze and would definitely stay here again. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect hotel.
