The obvious question in any rating is - would you return ?
The answer is definitely - yes - so that sums things up nicely.
On the plus side : great location with ski-in / out; lovely food and good variety; excellent service from the staff; modern boot warmer rack; ski rental in house with a technician if required; bar service; good sized rooms; good clothes storage; free WiFi in common area; Sky TV in rooms.
On the negative side : lounge is too small for the number of guests; acoustics in the dining area mean it is impossible to hold a conversation without shouting; rooms are a bit dimly lit and need freshening up; bathrooms have no ventilation so condensation is a problem; bathroom floors get very wet with shower spray.
As the pluses far outweigh the negatives this is an excellent choice for a great ski holiday. If you want good access to snow, good food and good service this is definitely recommended as the minor negatives don't amount to much at the end of the day.
