Grandes Murailles is a cosy and romantic hotel in the centre of Valtournenche. The staff was friendly and helpful, but somewhat reserved compared to many hosts I've had. Didn't bother me at all as everything went really smoothly. The hotel offers transportation to the closest lift station where you can also have your skis storaged.

Our room was outside the main building, but it was very comfortable and clean. The only minus was a weak wifi signal which basically left us offline. The signal in the main building was better.

The breakfast was good, but after a couple of days one would like some change in the selection. Different bread, fresh vegetables maybe? The afternoon tea (complimentary) was excellent after a hard day at the piste.

I would recommend Grandes Murailles to couples and families. You'll make more of your trip if you have a car as the town is pretty small and quiet and public transportation in the area is quite poor.

Skiing in the region is absolutely wonderful.

This is our second visit to Grandes Murailles and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. All the staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are full of character, comfortable and warm. We had a balcony looking out in to the main street.
The breakfast includes fresh fruit salad, various fruits, delicious homemade cake and other assorted pastries, yogurt, cereals, ham, cheese and lovely fresh bread.
They serve a very welcome afternoon tea and cake late afternoon on return from skiing.
The owner has a heated ski locker at the gondola station where you can keep your skis for free.
We enjoyed the walk along the river (15 mins) at the start and end of the days skiing, but there is a local bus which stops almost outside the hotel if you want to save your energy.
We would definitely return.

Stayed there for a week and love it! The hotel is located in the middle of Valtournenche in front of Maisons Gurmes shop. If you'd like to stay in a quiet authentic place, where you can't find bars, apre-ski, shops and lots of tourists, with a great scenery and trekking facilities - Valtournenche is the best choice.
The only problem of this hotel is the price. Everything else is perfect. Nice cozy and clean rooms. Proper sauna and hamam with the ideal chill-out area, which should be booked, so that you can rest alone or with your family. Breakfast includes almost everything you might want, and you can enjoy afternoon tea with hebrs and cheese.
I like the style and decoration of the hotel, which is true authentic. It's a family run hotel and you can feel this atmosphere.
Comparing to other places in Valtournenche, Grandes Murailles hotel seems to be overpriced, but if you're not on a budget, you won't be disappointed by staying there.
