I and my friends have been using this hotel for the last 8 years as a base for a long weekend skiing. As each year progressed we felt more uncomfortable and unloved. The hotel is still striving to push up market and if you want a romantic weekend away in the Italian Alps this could be for you. The rooms are good, warm and comfortable, the food is excellent, the wine (if you choose carefuilly) is reasonably priced and very good but there is something not quite right that is difficult to put your finger on.
I will say though that the hotel is perfectly placed for the ski lifts, ski shops and is only a short stroll into the centre of the town.
The hotel bar has never been busy but this year it was completely dead. Could this be because the hotel has taken out the draught beer and now only sell expensive bottled beer? Our consumption certainly dropped this year and we spent a lot more time out of the hotel. This undoubtedly cost the hotel several hundred pounds but we got the feeling that they do not necessarily want people drinking in the bar. Saying that, the hotel also ran out of several of the bottled beers. They just did not carry enough stock.
The hotel is buildnig a spa and once it is finally built at the hotel the prices will increase even more. This year we were quoted €140pppn but this was reduced to €110pppn when the spa wasn't finished.
Sadly the increase in price, the feeling that this year especially we were not "loved" guests and the fact that they have removed the sale of draught beer means that this will be our last visit to this hotel.
This is quite sad for us as we did want to see out 10 years but you just have to accept sometimes that if something isn't right, move on.
