Delightful little family run hotel on the hills above Bourg St. Maurice (and not expensive -- I think they are dropping their off-season demi-pension rates to 49e per person)
Comfortable and tastefully decorated with good linens and comfortable beds. The common areas as especially charming as they retain the original wooden fixtures (fireplace, siding, etc.) The west facing breakfast room was as terrific place for our group to convene for our post ride beer(s - time saving 50cl Pelbforth blondes are 5e each) and watch the sunset over the Petit St. Bernard.
The dining room is a vast open space where they serve (at least during our overnight) a copious (if not overly fancy) buffet that suited our group of 20 cyclists perfectly: cold salads, soup, grill your own meats, several potato side dishes and a wide assortment of quite excellent desserts.
Breakfast was again copious and well done, not extravagant, but perfectly adequate (juices, boil your own eggs, ham, cheese, yougurt, cereals, machine coffee...)
The only drawback for some might be the bathrooms, which the owners have had to retrofit into a floorplan that was not originally designed for ensuites (there are still extra common WCs on the "pallier" as they say, or at the end of the hallways.) the bathtubs, such as they are (our at least our room's was) are poured concrete with a setp in slot cut out of the side which obviously makes a full deep bath impossible (much to the dismay of our tub-loving English group members.)
