So in case I wasn't clear this hotel is just in the best location. You get your gear and then choose from 4-5 lifts that sort of converge in the near vicinity. There is an awesome sun terrace that overlooks the valley and the lifts with great service and reasonable drinks. The spa area is lovely, although I was confused by having a pool that technically you could do laps in (15m) then having jets coming out of the sides that push you into the other wall. For a chill out swim, sauna and steam and however it is lovely. We didn't find the noise a problem, however be aware this hotel is in a central location, means you don't have to walk far to get to the bars/restaurants/ lifts etc. This also means it is a more inhabited busy area so there is some noise. Only reason I have given 4 not 5 is the service was a bit hit and miss. The concierge was more of a hindrance than a help. Breakfast service was ropey however we came to the conclusion this is as the staff were working their socks off but were just woefully understaffed. That said we would definitely return l if we go back to Val Thorens.
It's been quite a few years always coming back to this hotel. Every year they improve their amenities. The spa in now great and the restaurant looks very nice. The service is very pleasant with a young team! This adding of course to its top location in the heart of Val Tho! Hope to be back very soon!
This was our second visit to this hotel , the last time was three years ago , the rooms where still in good condition, view from the balcony very nice , the rooms are not over big but more than enough room for two . The staff in the hotel where excellent nothing was too much trouble . Breakfast was ok but they did run out of eggs on our second day and we never had them again which was a little disappointing. Ski room had been refurbished since our last visit and it's an easy journey to the slopes . On the whole a very well placed hotel and will definitely will be returning next year .
Right in the village of Val Thorens ski in ski out totally renovated with very nice guestrooms. Guestrooms with balcony and nice views, bathrooms with bathtub and organic toiletries. Nice heating, lcd, wifi and beds. Breakfast is a full service breakfast with fresh orange juice, fresh fruits and eggs to your preference. Indoor ski lockers, pool and spa, restaurant, bar and terrace. The staff is very young and nice but lacking service speed. At lunch a lounge dj keeps a good vibe!
We spent 3 nights here and enjoyed the experience. The good bits: great ski-in, ski-out location; ski/boot room - crowded in the morning but heated boot racks were great; nice pool; good breakfast spread (but see below); nice bedroom - not big, but clean, very warm, comfortable, great view, comfy bed, lots of cupboards, very hot water and good water pressure, quiet, except noise from outside, which the hotel cannot do anything about, valet parking; helpful, friendly staff. Not so great: the breakfast room was over-run at about 8am as everyone wanted to get out on the slopes. Staff tried to keep up, but eggs, bacon and fried potatoes ran out and were not quickly re supplied. The room seemed too small for the number of guests. While the pool was very good, the steam room was quirky. One day it went mad with steaming heat, the next it just got cooler and cooler. The showers also came and went over two days - hot then cold then hot. My wife also found her changing room shower room floor slimy on 2 of our three days. It was eventually cleaned.
We spent 6 days end feb. half board. The room: took village "view", second floor. Room is ok and descent size for ski resort. Had a sofa that was used a additional bed for our 7 years old... and it wasn't very comfy. Bedroom will be much nicer if the lighting was improved... room is far too dark. Wi-Fi inside the room is slow to none existent The hotel: great location. Straight from ski room to the slopes. Lounge area is nice and cosy, comfy sofa with fire place... perfect after long day. Hotel is well maintained and pretty clean. Ski Rental shop inside the hotel is plus and the ski room too. Terrace: great spot to enjoy the sun and the view... perfect if they weren't blasting music. I like electro but the decibels are just too high. The staff: young, very friendly and helpful when needed. Great service overall.
Great location with rooms overlooking the piste, however this is a disadvantage if you wish to get a good nights sleep as everyone who exits the nightclubs congregates outside between 02:30 and 04:00. That's great if you are a reveller, but annoying if you are with a family. The restaurant food is ok, but the main restaurant is always colder than the rest of the hotel, which is always very warm ?? The staff are very polite and helpful and speak good English. The rooms are adequate with a small balcony, but the sound proofing is poor. We could clearly hear everyone who walked passed the room. In addition the only lift in the hotel developed a fault which caused very loud clanging & banging noises all day long. However, just to prove I'm not a complete whinge bag, the central location, with ski in-out is brilliant, and the West facing terrace is the best place to watch the sunset every evening.
After being stuck in traffic for 5 hours we finally arrived today at 3.20pm. When attempting to check in we were told our room would be ready in one hour. After an hour we were told it would be ready in 25 minutes. After that we were told it would be another hour, to which we said was unexceptable. After waiting more than 2 hours we asked again for our room and they told us it was ready. We made our way by ourselves. Our cases were not there we had to ring and ask for them. We have not been given any information about the hotel such as where to eat our meals, where the ski store room is or how to access the spa. We are also on the ground floor facing the road, which would be fine if the windows were blacked out on the outside. They aren't so we will spend the week with the curtains drawn so the people walking past can't see us. I have asked to be moved to a more private room where the curtains can be kept open and they have advised there is nothing available. I have been on the website and it says you can purchase a room for the duration of our stay with a mountain view. Other little things include finding a cork screw on the floor and the hairdryer is one of those cylindrical attached to the wall things that takes forever to dry hair, so ladies bring your own, however I don't know where you'd plug it in as there are no plugs to use apart from the bedside lamp plugs by the bed. On a more positive note, the hotel main facilities are lovely, the hotels location is great and our bed is amazing. The food looks fab too from what we have seen so far, so dinner should be great.
We stayed here and had a lovely time. We had a mountain view room and it was lovely. The room was clean and warm. The only thing i would say is the light is a bit poor in the room you can't see very well. They have no ceiling lights? The bar is nice and the staff are so... friendly. My husband is vegetarian and they knocked him up a sandwich and he said it was the best sandwich he'd ever had! The restaurant was nice for breakfast, They had loads to choose from. Overall we were very happy here.
We had lunch here and all the food was good but the the risotto was outstanding. The service was great too and the location was right next to the slopes. It was expensive but the best risotto in a long time so well done the chef.
