A very good town centre hotel good restaurant with chef who takes a pride in the quality of his meat.Only downside is that there is no private car parking and we had to park on the street but there were no problems.
The details of the hotel on Expedia were misleading when I booked.The details have been changed on Expedia since.
A jacuzzi and swimming pool were advertised.No charge was mentioned for use of the jacuzzi. When I arrived I was told that the jacuzzi costs €6 per 20 minutes per person and must be booked in advance.
Swimming pool and spa room are cold.
Jacuzzi and swimming pool are in an apartment block down the road.
There was no mention of a fee for cleaning the apartment. If you chose to not clean the apartment to perfection, you will be charged €52 if there are fewer than 4 people in your apartment, if there are 4 or more people in your apartment you will be charged €100. Even if you chose to pay and not clean the apartment, you will have to clean the bin, wash and arrange the dishes and sort out the bed linen.
Route to apartment was covered in snow, and rather than clearing the snow, the staff barricade the pathway using wooden palets and nails so you cannot use. I chose to ignore the staff member who was blocking the path and he shoved me back down the snowy path that I had climbed.
I am refering to the "Les Hameaux et Chalets de la Vallee d'Or" apartments that are owned by Odalys. Pierre en Vacances also own apartments called "Les Hameaux et Chalets de la Vallee d'Or" located on the same road, and these are cheaper, more modern and they will not expect you to clean the apartment. The staff member I spoke to was polite and I would recommend you go to them.
Appartment easy to find, spacious with plenty of storage and kitchen facilities. Oven would have been an extra benefit! Not the best location for non skiers but if you have a car you can drive up and down the hill. Would recommend anyone who has luggage space to take their own double sheets and quilt cover and towels as these are very basic and towels are small! We stopped at large Carrefour on route which proved to be sensible given the prices in local supermarket although basics were reasonable. Sauna and jacuzzi too difficult to book and not especially clean so not worth using. Would definitely book again.
Its a nice place this, cheap and cheerful, very basic, you even have to make your own beds hence the price! Very well situated, you can literally ski in and out of it via a nice blue run that goes past the front door. 5 mins walk and your at pretty much everything, bars, restaurants, shops etc. Free shuttle bus stops outside it also. Good view from our balcony. Bloke called andreas who works there made us laugh alot! Cheers for the stay!

Excellent room one of the best and certainly most cost competitive I have stayed for skiing. 2 bedrooms with 1 double bed and a bunk bed + a large lounge with an extra double and single bed. Flat screen TV and modern cooking utilities, fridge and other bits and bobs. slope is all of 10 yards from the hotel and there is an excellent sledge slope very close. all in all excellent. Try and arrive early as at midday you wait a long time to check in..
