This hotel is absolutely perfect for skiing - you can ski straight to it, the location is ideal. The couple that run the hotel are very friendly and happy to help too.
It's a very picturesque hotel and inside and out, very relaxing and cosy, full of pretty little details that added to the overall ambience. The Lounge area is gorgeous and a really relaxing place to chill out after dinner or the slopes.
The rooms are small, but perfectly adequate for a ski trip and our balcony was very spacious - a wonderful spot to sit and admire the moutain views.
The food was very good, you have to just go with the flow and be willing to try things you're not sure of (if that's not you maybe you would struggle) - but I love trying new things and found all the dishes to be tasty. The lunch menu is great - a highly recommened the Tartiflette, Tartines Chaude and Salade Chevre Chaude.
It's really lovely sitting in the outside area at the hotel for lunch - again great mountain views.
Only thing I would advise is that the hotel does have an 'apres ski' bar attached to it (which isn't open very late at all) but it does pump out a lot of that loud europop sort of music in the early evenings, during the day times it was more mellow music (Jack Johnson etc...) - but just be warned about the europop in the evenings! It doesn't last long though, so didn't bother us too much - it just made taking a post skiing nap a bit difficult!
That said we found the hotel to be very quiet most of the time, in fact if you are looking for a bit of a party hotel with a late night bar this probably isn't the one for you. I went as part of a group so we wanted to sit up in the bar/lounge enjoying a few drinks after dinner (probably finishing about 1am) but to do this we had to buy a couple of bottles of wine, as the staff all finished at 11.
Also the skii locker room is very narrow - not the most practical when there's a few of you in there, but still it's great that they had a place to store your equipment.
The spa is gorgeous! A complete oasis of calm, absolutely stunning.
If you stay here I highly recommend a visit to Crepes A GoGo too.
All in all this hotel was perfect for our needs, a very relaxing retreat after a hard day's skiing...I just wish the bar was open a bit later!
