    Very good 8.2 From 299 reviews

    Fair 4.0
    on arrival we felt very unwelcome in your hotel. I can’t count the amount of times the reception staff told us that ‘we are one of 700 guests’. Both Amy and I have stayed at countless hotels over the years, at ski resorts and others, and have never been made to feel so insignificant as a hotel guest. On checkout, we were never asked how our stay was or if we had enjoyed our holiday. We were not asked whether we would like our bags to be kept safe. We felt like everything was just too much effort for your staff. None of your staff members wear name badges and thus we believe this makes them feel no individual responsibility for their customer service. On one occasion I asked the staff in the Janssson bar if I could have something to eat as I had seen someone have a food earlier on. The lady (again, I don’t know her name as she wasn’t wearing a name badge) said to me ‘no we don’t serve food’ and then walked off. So I asked again why someone else had food and she told me it was impossible as she had been there all day, she then proceeded to walk off again. There was no offer of anywhere else in the hotel I could eat, I feel like she just wanted to get rid of me. There was no consistency as to the maid service, ie. on multiple occasions we had no milk provided, no fresh towels, no water bottles. On one occasion, our window was left wide open and when we returned our room was freezing. Amy (my guest) went to reception to discuss with your staff and they were very unhelpful,

    Great show hotel
    Amazing experience, dinner show every night. It’s like they never want you to leave the hotel, spa and pool amazing. Great breakfast. And for people who love to ski , it’s the perfect hotel , they got everything . Forfeit in special prices, ski shop , lockers and personally I like the most was the savoy track right behind , for people who like Le brevent, it’s perfect. Give it time to them , they renovating a old hotel so you will find some places in process of reconstruction, room a little small but ok for what we need.

    AMAZING
    Absolutely loved staying here! We spent 5 nights here over Christmas and could not be happier. Very convenient for the snow, as you can hire all ski gear in the basement, store stuff in the lockers and then walk to the base of the gondola. We were also able to use a free shuttle bus to get to other ski areas nearby. The restaurants / bars in the hotel were amazing, and there was entertainment basically every night! The hotel was right near the middle of town, and only a 15 minute walk to the bus station where we were able to get a bus straight to Geneva airport. Literally the only thing slightly off about the hotel was the shower pressure, which was quite low. Other than that, would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again!

    Kids club
    Hotel over run with children, spa, lounge, club everywhere you went was kid central, mainly running amok, so if it’s a “grown up” holiday give this place a wide berth, rooms are dirty, staff stretched, in a 5 day stay our room was serviced once on the last day when they knocked on at 5.00pm, fabulous location for town centre, but Savoy lift never working so lots of walking/buses for ski access

    Enjoyable hotel if you want to party!
    Enjoyable stay at hotel. Bedrooms clean and modern facilities. Nice swimming pool with mountain view. Excellent food and party atmosphere. Good breakfast. However, evening meals expensive. Loud music until midnight, noisy bedrooms. Walls not sound proof. Noisy waste toilet drains in bathroom especially when upstairs bedroom kept flushing toilet throughout the night. Reception not interested when I reported these problems.

    Poor 2.0
    Way below expectations
    Check in and check out was chaos ! Bathroom shower tray was covered in mould, when we complained they sent a cleaner ho had no impact, the person who appeared to be in charge suggested we posted on trip adviser (saying this is the only way to get anything done) bad attitude all round and general attitude of all staff was poor. We defiantly won’t be going back. please we only booked for 2 nights.
