Although some of the rooms are a little small & the Hotel having only re-opened 8 Weeks ago (under new owners) & is still undergoing updating .and it really is probably only 3* I could not help giving the Grand Hotel an EXCELLENT rating. Our party of 10 having booked with Neilson arrived late-morning Sunday to find our rooms were not yet ready. But the reception team quickly arranged for a room for us to store our luggage ,change & sort out our Ski,s & Boots & provided us with padlocks to our Ski & Boot lockers.
The attitude of the staff & management was always friendly , positive & attentive,
The food was almost mind boggling and some of us had to adjust our belts despite burning loads of calories throwing ourselves down the mountains for 6 Days.
Half-Board is not really a fair description for a Buffet breakfast & a 4/5 Course Evening meal which always offered several alternatives including, Baked (Roast) Beef, Pork, Lamb, Duck,Chicken, regional specialities includng Tartefleite, Salmon, Pike & even Shark! & even though the portions were very large, some people in our group could not resist asking for extra's.
This Hotel Really is Almost Ski to and it is probably only 30 Metres from the 3 Lifts that Start from the bottom of the Luc Alfund Piste and has to be the BEST LOCATION in town.
Many of the best rooms offer Balconies that look directly up the Piste and have more space than those that face towards the Town .Some rooms can be linked for larger family groups
but if you Just want to Ski & dont have too much luggage one of the small rooms is Okay for a week!
The public areas including,the bar,Lounge (with a roaring log fire) & reception are all spotless and the FREE WI-FI is very very good.(the signal wasn't Excellent everywhere)
It is hard to see how the property could be improved so that it could be improved to 5 Star
...so how did I give it EXCELLENT ?
The food, the location, the Staff , free WI-FI & value for money were so much better than expected I would give them all 6 Stars would I stay there again ? DEFINITELY
