Prime location in the resort; handy for gondola, ski school, equipment hire and places to eat and drink. Rooms were basic but functional enough, who spends much time in their room anyway?
Upon stepping off the bus make sure that you grab everybodys passport and charge straight up the ramp and into the reception before the rest of the coach gets wind of what youre doing. The check in process is pretty slow and disorganised. Not an issue if youre the first there though.
If your package allows, i would avoid berthod ski hire (under the gondola station). Staff were all pretty surly and reluctant to help. Equipment was also pretty dated (compared to other resorts i have visited).
Nothing to do with the hotel but days spent in nearby la rosiere (ski there) and courmayeur (free bus there) were a great change from the fairly limited runs of la thuile itself.
Overall a great holiday but i doubt i would return.
