We were quite overwhelmed by the space and facilities in the apartment. All the rooms were spacious and well designed. Each having plenty of wardrobe space and a TV. The kitchen was extremely well equipped - we wanted for nothing. The phone even had pre-dial numbers to the best restaurants in town (free).
Lighting the fire (with wood supplied) was a wonderful ritual, although not really necessary as the apartment was lovely and warm.
I couldn't rate the staff more highly (Mrs Miggins) and they went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable and easy as possible, including delivering fresh bread to our door every morning (although this was quite expensive).
Location wise - The lodge is next door to a leisure centre (with a great pool) and very accessible to the main gondola. It really takes no more than 5 minutes flat walking. The town is also a very short stroll away.
We however, were used to ski in, ski out, and hadn't really appreciated how long it took to actually get onto the slopes. You are obviously dictated to by the operations personal of the gondola - and we found that it took about 45 minutes door to slope, in January (short queues). Not great if you have small children, who need a rest a lunchtime, but perfect if you stay out all day.
