Just returned from a weeks skiing in Tignes whilst staying at the Chalet Alpina (half board). I read the other reviews AFTER booking it and was worried what I might come across at the accommodation...however we need not have been worried. Yes, the room was very small, though we have stayed in 5 star skiing hotels with equally small spaces around us. The bedroom did have a bunkbed in the entrance corridor and a fold out double bed in the main area. We did not use the cooking facilities though we did use the fridge. We did have to fill in a room inventory within a day or two of us arriving though there was no real urgency and when we checked out and a lady came round to "inspect" the room she glanced into the cupboards to briefly check that we had not wrecked the place. We were given our 300 euros cash back without any problems. The ski locker room on the ground floor was adequate as expected and the Chalet location was just about perfect, within 100m of the lifts. The hotel food was very good every day with a continental breakfast and a 3 course evening meal. The staff were very friendly and polite and the accommodation was clean. The place does need a facelift and a bit of modernisation eg shower curtain around the shower tray rather shower doors. All in all we would come back to Chalet Alpina if we got a good deal, though maybe chose another accommodation if we were forced to pay full price! As for Tignes, the ski area is massive and even after a week of hard skiing we did not cover everything. We skied over for lunch in Val D'Isere every day. The town was dead every night with all of the bars being deserted!! The snow was great and we never saw a cloud all week.
