- "The location of this 4* hotel in Val Thorens is probably the best for ski on/off and downtown-life seekers. And the price makes it a more affordable alternative for quality hotels to the 5*-hotels. Nice swimming pool and spa, nice bar area ; still, could do better on the food/terrace and the lift system. Dinner at La Fondue delivered in line with expectations for a traditional alpine restaurant, and with knowledgeable and friendly staff." - Trip Advisor

- "This is a good location for a ski holiday. The place is ski in and ski out, and the place is setup for a great holiday. The rooms are reasonably sized and well appointed. The views are good and the upper rooms better. The hotel bar is quiet and very friendly, in good weather the terrace is fab. The restaurant is generally good quality and very classically French styled. Overall a great hotel with good facilities, the outstanding element of the hotel is the staff who are friendly and helpful." - Trip Advisor
