DW is a brilliant small hotel 10 mins walk outside Sr Anton, looking over Rendell. It offers spacious generous chic accommodation and excellent value but the ace in their pack is the food which is of a standard beyond even a luxury 5 star hotel in a major capital city. We have eaten in many of London's Michelin starred restaurants and its every bit as good and it's EVERY night! ( 5 courses)
As other reviewers have mentioned the price is inclusive of arranged taxi service to the ski/boot storage facility adjacent to the main lifts. (the staff here are also exceptionally knowledgeable about equipment). So, there is no rushing in the morning for lifts, no pressure or hassle, They even paid for our taxi to the station when we were leaving which was very generous and unexpected.
The buses back up to the hotel are free and frequent, the walk is easy and pleasant into town anyway and I enjoyed walking back up which was no more than 20 minutes.
I dont think this is your place if you are a dedicated party animal, The only slight criticism I have is the bar area is too small for socializing, 4 seats by the fire and 3 on the bar. If you like to sit and chat before dinner it isnt easy and impossible if you are with a big party. There is more room available but they have put two dinning tables in the bar area. The other slight niggle was that the shower wasnt as powerful as I would have liked.
That said this is undoubtedly one of the most memorable and exceptional hotels / restaurants I have ever visited, It is not silver service or have a concierge in livery, its not what its about but what they do do is exceptional.
I was sorry to leave and that never happens, usually I am keen to get home I cant say better than that!
