“Good 2 star hotel - only 50m to the chairlift!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

This 2 star hotel does not have all the charm and luxe of some other ski resort hotels, but it doesn't claim it does either. In fact, as a functional, clean, easy to access, convenient place to rest up, be fed and hit the nearby ski slopes it is perfect.

Indeed, the friendly staff, the plentiful continental breakfast, the assortment of evening meals (mostly meat based - the lamb was excellent, the desserts so-so), the ease of parking your car out the front, the convenient changing area pre/post skiing, the nearby bakery, hot showers in the relatively spacious rooms, free Wi-FI, quaint 80s decor lounge area for a drink and board games, the free bus shuttle to Valloire, two ski hire shops within spitting distance are some of the notable features. The highlight though is the fact that the nearest chairlift to get onto the mountain and beyond is only 50m away!
