Just had a week skiing in the Gressonay/Champoluc linked area. We chose this hotel through a package deal, however we were the only couple on a package.The people who manage and work in the hotel always have a smile on their face and make your stay a great experience! The location is good once you have arrived with your bags as the hill up to the hotel is a little steep in wintry conditions. Short walk on to the piste in the morning, likewise in the evening. Great ski storage facilities with boot warmers etc. Didn't use the wellness but by accounts from other guests with us, it is an excellent facility. The meals are varied and there is a choice of 4 menus one being fully vegetarian. Others may have two or three of the four courses. Wine list ranges from 12 euros right up to the Amarone's and Barollo for 50-60 Euros. Rooms are quite spacious as was the bathroom. Cannot knock it in any way, but it is the staff that make it special!!!

Fantastic week in the Ellex Hotel. New and clean facilities with a warm and cosy atmosphere. Very friendly staff that are helpful and open to whatever question you might have. Would definitely recommend staying here if you are visiting Staffal!

On our 8-day tour around Monte Rosa, we stopped in Stafal at the hotel Ellex. This is by far the best stop we had: price is more than ok, rooms clean and new, for additional 12 EUR have a sauna or a steam bath, best breakfast buffet with house made cakes – really not to be missed!

We spend a week at the Ellex and felt welcome from the moment we walked in. This 3star facility looks to be very modern and everything works--from the tidy spa/sauna/steam downstairs to the warm and well laid out rooms in this chalet. A short ski / walk to two cabin lifts starts the day on the slopes and one can literally ski home at the end of the day.

Only complaints--and these are minor--the bed was very firm (my personal opinion) and the food, while healthy and ample, was fairly average, despite multiple options. The pasta course was the highlight of every meal but the meat couse was unimaginative and covered in some sort of sauce. I usually was so full by the end of pasta and starter though that it was not a huge deal--and the desserts were worth saving room for! The staff knew their wine list and we got great recommendations--even some wines that were not on the list! This is a great family destination and most of the guests were family oriented.

For a family trip to the slopes Ellex is a wonderful choice. We hope to return again soon!

Room Tip: Our room, 103, was a corner room with a lovely view of the slopes and valley. We had an extra bed pu...

Traveled with 4 friends to go skiing. Ellex hotel is a small place but in this very small village everything is small. The rooms are ok but not so much space. On the other hand we spent most of the time in the slopes. The Spa is very convenient in the basement and included in the room-price. There is a bigger room for everyone with a fireplace and easy chairs. Looks very nice. The chairs might look nice but isn’t so cosy. They have tried to make it personal and you can see that it is a bit artificial.
The staff is very friendly and the food is good.

This was our second winter stay in this cosy, family runned Hotel Ellex. We are not one of the most easy quests, but with this hotel we have absolutely nothing to complain about. The general atmosphere and details are just right:Owners and staff are extremely friendly, helpfull and efficient. The rooms are well furnished with lovely local details. The beds are very comfortable (very un-Italian!). For 7 days we enjoyed half pension with really good food with every night the choice of a local menu or Italian menue. Hotel Ellex is very close to the lifts and with enough snow you can ski until the hotel door.

Stayed in the Ellex in January 2013. Nice hotel and friendly staff but beware if you ask for an extra hot drink at breakfast you will be charged for it. We didn't find this out until we paid our bill at the end. There is no notice to say you can only have one drink and the staff didn't say anything when we ordered it. This is the first time in 17 years of skiing that we have come across this. Also if you have an early flight on departure there is no breakfast in the morning - you are given a doggy bag in the evening with 2 rolls (bit dry by the morning) but NO drink so you need to go and buy one at the supermarket the day before. Crystal have apologised for this but have said no-one else has complained. Apology accepted but we would rather have not been charged in the first place!!
