There was somebody available at the reception at midnight to let us in at late arrival
Far too expensive in regards to: size of the room - comfort -bathroom facilities
the hotel was warm, well laid out.
nobody on reception at 4pm - maybe this is normal. i didn't receive a late key until after the second night.
Hotel is well located and staff are helpful.
Hotel is very basic, bathrooms are tiny.
The hotel is well located at the top end of the ski resort (at the Vanosc end). It is opposite the public elevator that takes you down to the part of the village where you then walk (2 minutes) to the Diable chairlift. It is also next to a staircase that takes you up to the chairlift on the other side of the village, so you have easy access to both sides of the mountains. The hotel is also only a 5 minute walk from the bus stop (Drop Off point Number 4 on the coach company map). The hotel has a cellar storage room for skis and stuff with lockable cupboards to secure your skis/snowboard. There is also a ground floor door from the cellar direct to the street outside. The rooms at the front have a generous balcony.
To get to the hotel reception you have to climb a set of outside stairs (or the internal stairs from the basement). Although I was staying on the ground floor (Reception Level) I noticed there was no lift to the upper floors so people with difficulty in climbing stairs may struggle. The hotel staff does help carry your bags to your room though. The hotel is located next to Smithy's Tavern so you should expect some singing in the early hours (around 0430 hrs!) as people leave the pub, but they quickly pass by.
