    They served conserved food for the lunch. It would be really helpful if they would notify that food is conserved, not fresh, when you ordering.

    The room was good and comfortable

    The Wi-Fi codes were mystical...very complicated codes to decipher and if the device is turned off the code expires. I did mention to the hotel who were unaware of the code expiry. It is a mountain resort so I guess this is to be expected, didn't affect my stay at all.

    The staff were very friendly and nothing was any trouble, the lounge was very relaxing and peaceful.

    The choice of menu for the evening meal was a little limited. However,the food was amazing, it was good quality food,tasty and well presented.

    The hotel was well situated for the slopes, and the location was idyllic, the ski hire on site was also a bonus. The resort is excellent for someone who hasn't skied before as it wasn't over crowded. Hotel staff friendly and helpful

    The weather

    The staff was great. The restaurant was excellent, serving great dishes of varied French cuisine in an area where usually the food in restaurants is limited to the classic cheezy touristy raclette/fondues. Well done!

    The free WiFi - but there seemed to be some excellent other providers that we were able to log into without any problem at all. It appears there is only one cash machine in town and a long way away from the hotel, so be warned. The sauna was in excess of 100C and I got a steam burn - no biggie, but be warned!

    Actually the croissants were extra flaky. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The ski facilities were impressive and the location near the main ski lift was a bonus. Everything worked well (apart from the hotel's advertised WiFi) and was as advertised. If not for the business of skiing, I could have lazed in the lounge by the cosy fire all day and probably much of the night!

    Very sweet hotel with great views. Short walk to the centre of the village (15min?) but bakery, grocery store and restaurant in the hameau la Lay (open also in the summer). Restaurant of the hotel is good (mixture of hikers from TMB and people nicely dressed, but everyone fit in). 15min walk (or free shuttle) to Notre Dame de la Gorge, the starting point for some lovely hikes.
