We stayed here a couple of years ago after booking through Neilson - this year we did it independantly as we wanted two seperate rooms (one double, one single), a longer stay (8 nights) and better flight times. Booking could not have been easier. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is very good. Apart from a good choice for all the courses, there is a very nice fresh fruit salad every evening on the desert bar.
The wine list is fantastic with lots of choice, the disappointment being that you can't get it back in the UK.
The rooms vary in size, depending on whether you go for superior or standard. The Standard wasn't very big but the other room was larger and both had views over the mountains. As previously mentioned the beds are 'firm' and the pillows are bricks - ask for extras as well. The cleaners are around early in the morning, usually about 8am so don't want to have a lie-in! but the rooms are kept very clean. Decor is ready for repair but that doesn't affect the overall quality of the hotel.
You are close to the ski lockers (which are free if you stay at the hotel) and there is a boot room in the basement. As part of our booking, the reception organised our lift passes and these were waiting for us on our first day of skiing.They also have a 10% discount scheme on ski rental with the shop across the road.
If you are driving, there is a locked underground car park but there is a charge for this. However it does mean that you don't have to clean the snow off the car when you come to go home.
