This the third time, my daughter and I have stayed at Le Gentiana and each time it just gets better & better. Serge & Nadia recognised us, from before, and welcomed us with open arms. Just when you thought the food couldn't get better, each meal left us with the wow factor. The highlight had to be the starter of crab, beetroot jelly & beetroot consume. The wine list is extensive, and not too expensive, considering the quality. All the staff, from the reception, bar & restaurant, go out of their way, to be as helpful and friendly, without being intrusive. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for them and it was good to engage in conversation with them. The spa facilities are great and it's a lovely touch, to be provided with dressing gowns & slippers. The lounge is spacious and comfortable with plenty of armchairs. The bar staff will bring your drinks to you, along with free 'pre-diner nibbles'. The rooms are indeed a tad small, with limited storage space, but this is no different from most ski hotels. The water is always hot and fresh towels are supplied every day and the beds are made daily. We will definitely be returning next year.
There was a previous comment about Neilson. Personally, having often travelled with them, I have no complaints. Our rep went 'the extra mile' to find me a bar that was showing Premiership football, when all the other bars were showing rugby. We used Twinner ski services, who were excellent. My daughter had problems with her UK bought boots, and they were so helpful in solving the problem.
All in all a great week in Tignes.
