- "Perched as one of the highest properties in the resort we really like this hotel. Well designed with a good mix of practicality and French funkiness (you can sit on chairs in the shape of hands in the bar). Well appointed and attentive and highly accommodating service make for a very enjoyable place to stay. The shuttle service into (and back from) town is excellent." - Trip Advisor

Nothing was too much trouble. The food was amazing and the spa is a very welcome retreat at the end of a hard days skiing.
