The location of this hotel is next to several connecting chairlifts and gondolas. Room is not very big but with enough closets for our clothing. Balcony overlook the ski field but sometimes have people yelling at night. Lift is very slow and we prefer walking stairs. But set dinner was not very attractive when you know many good restaurants around....

The hotel is in a perfect location and is certainly value for money. Food and service is excellent with nothing too much trouble. Some nights the set menu wasn't for us but they were happy for us to pick off the a la carte menu for a reasonable supplement. The spa is perfect after a day on the slopes. I...

This is my second visit to this hotel this winter. That may tell you all that you need to know. The hotel does what its website says it does.

Spent 6 nights there for our ski trip in a package ski tour. The staff and owner were friendly and helpful. Room is clean and decorated to provide local atmosphere (I suppose) but a bit small to accommodate 2 snowboard roller bags in our case. Bath room is of good size with a bathtub to help recover from a day...
