“food to die for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

We booked this hotel at short notice for three nights as we wanted to visit friends skiing.
As it was three star I did not expect brilliant food or experience, but to my surprise this small hotel exceeded all expectations and I would certainly recommend it. The staff were exceptional. Very polite, helpful and sociable. The atmosphere was cosy and friendly just what you need after skiing.
The biggest surprise was the food. The breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choice of cereals,,hams, cheeses etc along with a fantastic selection of homemade cakes and pastries. Mouthwatering! At breakfast we were asked for for choice of dinner menu. This was a choice of three pasta starters and a choice of three main courses. You could also have soup of the day.
The dinner sitting was at 7.30pm. On entering the dining room there was a lovely selection of anti pasta dishes and salads. It is advisable not to fill up on this course too much if you want to make the most of the next courses.
The pasta course was gorgeous, homemade Italian with stunning flavours and simple ingredients. The main course we had was a pork leg dish with potatoes. The meat just fell off the bone. Never tasted anything like it! The night after was just as lovely a deer casserole with polentta.
The location of the hotel is just a couple of miles from the main Sestriere resort but you can join the ski slopes from here as well and there are restaurants and bars just down the road.

It was a truly surprising experience and one worth experiencing.

Stayed for 4 nights with my husband for a skiing holiday. This charming, clean hotel is located in the valley of Borgata, right next to Sestriere. You can walk to the ski lifts (5 min), or get a ride from the very friendly and most helpful owner. A the ski lifts there is a ski rental place where you can leave your shoes for the day, and the ski equipment for the night. They hold it for you to use the next day. This is most convenient. The skiing was amazing, great views too.

The hotel is family run with lots of charm. Breakfast and dinner can be arranged in the main floor eatery. The food is all home made from scratch, very delicious and in great quantities. My only complaint is, no fruit available. In the morning the staff asks everyone about their choice, if any, for the dinner menu. There is a lounge area on the main floor with couches, tv, a bar, and wifi. The wellness room is open in afternoons with a steam room and sauna. The jacuzzi was out of order. This was a nice pass time after skiing. The owner is ready to do anything for the guests, he helped us lots when out luggage was delayed for over a day.

My partner and I just stayed 4 days in the Hotel Sciatori for some skiing over the New Year holiday. The hotel is located just outside of Sestriere and provides everything one needs for a relaxing and stress-free holiday, including personal shuttle service to the main town or to ski lifts at all times, and a great spa downstairs with hot tub, sauna, steam room and showers that was a perfect retreat after long days on the slopes. The rooms are cozy and clean, and the breakfast was delicious and diverse (meats and cheeses, yogurt and cereals, fruits, eggs, pizzas, quiches, pastries), as was dinner - various salads and antipasti, followed by pasta and/or soups, then a choice of different meat dishes (fish, ham, steak, chicken, wild boar), and finally homebaked pies and cakes for dessert. Each night we were happily stuffed and ready for a good night's sleep!
Overall the hotel provides a very warm and family-like atmosphere, and we cannot compliment Gianpaolo and his colleagues enough for their personalized service, hospitality and generosity. As an example, after we checked out he drove us to the bus that goes to the train stration in Oulx. After about 20 minutes the bus still had not shown up - apparently this is quite common, especially after a good snow - and we called Gianpaolo to ask for the number of a taxi. Instead, he immediately dropped what he was doing, retrieved us again and took us directly to the station (~45 minutes away) in record time so that we could make our train, then refused any compensation for his troubles. A genuinely sweet guy who literally goes out of his way to ensure the guests have no complaints, even after you have left the hotel.

just spent a very enjoyable week this hotel

LOCATION hotel is situated in borgata - a 5 minute drive from sestriere proper. it is served infrequently by public transport right outside the door but if transport is not available, the hotel offers a shuttle service for free to and from sestriere centre. it is located about a 4-5 min walk away from chairlifts. there is ski and boot deposit service across road from chairlift so this walk does not need to be done with boots and skis. if you dont wish to walk however, again shuttle service available through hotel

ROOMS pleasant rooms. comfortable for our needs and always kept very clean

SERVICE have never stayed at a hotel with service like this. the owner treated us like his children, sorting out anything and everything we needed without us having to ask. words cannot do justice to service offered by gianpaolo

FOOD very good food. fresh bread and cold cuts, and tasty fresh sweets/pastries served every morning. evening meal menu changes every day. very abundant, interesting choices and all plates very tasty

overall definitely 5*

Location is great - Borgata is a sweet and quiet area, and only a 5 minute drive away from the centre, with a shuttle bus that passes right outside the hotel (if the hotel owner does not offer to give you a lift himself!). The main ski lifts of the area are a very short walk away - and you may leave your skis and boots with the ski rental shop that is just across the road from those lifts - so no need to carry them far!
Service was fantastic - owners and staff were always ready and v. happy to help!
Room was very clean and comfortable. Hotel was not noisy at all! There is a well stocked bar and cosy lounge area with a TV and fire place.
Food - stuffed myself with the delicious buffet breakfast daily - fresh bread, warm croissants, cereal, yogurts, a selection of home-made desserts... :) We had dinner at the hotel a number of times too and the food was lovely - a 4 course meal and the menu changes daily.
Skiing in the area is amazing. From Borgata you have access to all other areas in the VIALATEA area.
Overall, simply excellent value for money - greatly recommended !!

I spent a week here in March 2012. It is one of the few hotels in Sestriere that combine fantastic value for money with genuine hospitality. The rooms were well apportioned, clean and the food wholesome and plentiful. Within an easy 5 minute walk to the chairlifts in Sestriere Borgata. So nice to feel valued and welcome - a rarity in a ski resort.
