Business, Other Amenities

It was very well situated for access to the ski slopes. The room - a family room was lovely both in decor and size and both my girls actually got real beds - not sofa beds as is the norm! The food was very good but was detracted from by the poor quality of crockery - every meal we picked up something that hadn't been washed properly .
It was advertised as a Spa hotel and this is the main reason we chose it. The spa bit was very small and we were asked to wear a bathing costume at all times even in the sauna!!Despite a long list of regulations, for use of the Sauna including no - one under 17 (I paid full price for my eldest daughter but she was not allowed to use these facilities - this was th first thing they told us on arrival but I do not think it is on their web) , they did not remind guests to take a towel into the Sauna which meant that people sat there sweating all over the wood. This is so yukky that neither my husband or I could face using the Sauna. Either the French have different standards of hygiene or the hotel are not 'au fait' with how to use a Sauna.
Staff very friendly,close to the slopes and ski school meeting place.
choice of evening meal
The location for a skiing holiday was perfect however not much else in the area.
The reception area was very darkly decorated and not very welcoming as a first impression and restaurant staff were very straight faced and not very freindly, hard to approach and made a few mistakes with the billing overcharging by quite a significant ammount.
The meals on half board were excellent. The staff were attentive.
The double bed was two singles pushed together which was unconfortable because they were made up separately with two single duvets - a large bottom sheet and a larger duvet is needed. The room was far too hot during the first two nights of our stay.
