    great to have a heated pool but it could be warmer - maybe relies on heat from the sun, but the pool seemed to be in the shade much of the day

    we have been before and had been very impressed. The ambience, staff and food were truly excellent. Good sized room with views

    Dinners and breakfasts were very good with plenty variety. Room with balcony overlooking the village was clean, comfortable and well equiped. The hotel is situated quite close to the gondola lift up the mountain into the ski area and it had a super ski/boot room with built in boot dryers.

    everything is OK

    It's me again. Restaraunt L'Alpenrose at the hotel - my favorite. The food was high restaurant end quality and beautifully presented. Sylvester party dinner - so delicious! Best restaraunts at Champagny en Vanoise – La Plagne Domaine: 1. Restaurant Le Roc des Blanchets - don't trust TripAdvisor!! - this is really the best. Best food in menu: a. Omelette with truffles ! b. Salad Montagnard - best in the region c. Le homard Cuisson basse température, royale de légumes, émulsion topinambour 2. Restaurant Le Chalet des Colosses. Best food in menu: a. Gnocchis au rumex alpin b. Souris d’agneau mijotée au foin 3. Restaurant Le petit bouquetin - looked a bit small – reservation is necessary, but food is really good a. Steak on the stone with company 2010 Bordeaux b. Pierrarde de boeuf ! - I like mixed meat The last thing: if I choose between Hotel L'Ancolie and Alpina nearby - I definitely choose Hotel L'Ancolie.

    Things I would change, provide a minibar in the room, people ready to pay more for this; Slow/disconnecting internet/wifi; but thats all that comes to mind.

    The owners, Anne et Philippe PELICAN are exceptionally nice and friendly and have a good sense of humour even in bad weather. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. The staff were all helpful and only to pleased to help – especially for my younger son - vegetarian . Next week we stay at Central Hotel Verbie and there is no vegetarian options like at Hotel Ancolie. Great restaurant L'Alpenrose outside - see my next review about food at Champagny en Vanoise – La Plagne Domaine. But best of all, only a two minute walk to the main ski lift, which is great for getting away up the slopes in the morning. All in all, we have great vacations!

    Sorry to have to say that we were given probably the worst room in the hotel number 14.. It was sombre and depressing with little window space and a view of the tatty kitchen outside area below. If you looked across and pretended that wasn't there you could see the mountains. I suppose that we should have asked to change but after an 800 mile journey we unpacked our stuff and just put up with it. The hotel was busy at the time too so there probably wasn't another room available and you can't unpack and pack again half way through your holiday. No one showed us to the room and helped us with our suff either which was disappointing.

    A nice hotel in a lovely setting.
