We recently spent a long weekend in Central Hotel, Verbier, after reading positive reviews on Trip Advisor, and absolutely loved it. The hotel is unusual for a ski hotel in having only eight rooms, which is a definite bonus if you easily tire easily of the big, impersonal hotels so often found in ski resorts. It also means that the hotel can offer a highly personalised service. Philippe, the manager, makes a point of welcoming each guest and offering advice on anything from the best slopes in the resort to restaurants and places to find high quality local produce. Philippe is also the one to take your booking and always replies promptly to e-mails if you have any queries before you arrive (so often not the case for bigger hotels). You could say that he makes sure your entire hotel experience from A to Z is a great one.
The hotel itself is impeccably clean, and the rooms beautifully designed. Our room was more than spacious and had a large jacuzzi to relax aching muscles at the end of a hard day on the slopes. We also had a great view and large balcony overlooking the central square and the mountains.
Breakfast (Philippe again) was more than satisfactory, and included a basket of fresh bread and pastries every morning.
Central Hotel is a wonderful find for singles or for a romantic get-away for two, but probably not for families or for people wanting to chill out in a lounge area. It is excellently located, only two minutes away from the bus stop to the Médran lifts (which incidentally are only a five-minute walk away). Despite some remarks that music from the bar below could be heard in the rooms, we certainly didn't notice it. Besides, the beds are so comfortable that you're asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow!
All in all, a wonderful experience. We are looking forward to going back as soon as we get another free weekend.
