This was an excellent place to stay and exactly what I wanted - somewhere cheap to stay whilst skiing. Having read some old reviews I had low expectations, although the reviews from this year seemed better. I was very pleasantly surprised - the room was of a decent size (although I got a room with a double and a single in it just for me) and the bathroom was great (but no bath, as expected). The hot water worked - it just took a few moments to come on. The beds are uncomfortable (camp beds and actually I think my double was just two camp beds with a double sheet over the top). The stairway echoed so I was up quite a bit when others returned to their rooms and my window looked out onto the main road, where the transfer coaches arrived/departed at 5 and 6 a.m. (only on one day). It is a 5-10 minute uphill walk to the pistes - apparently there is a bus but I didn't see it and I enjoyed the morning warm up...much preferring the downhill walk at the end of the day - you pribably wouldn't want to do this with children, but you are able to hire lockers by the piste to store skis and books, making the walk a lot easier. I didn't. And if you get the bus to Montgeneve, or anywhere else the bus stop is just 50 yards from the hotel door.
Alexandra, the manager, speaks very good English and was extremely friendly. Breakfast was available for 5 euros and just as good as any other resort hotels.
