"February Skiing Holiday"
We have just returned from a skiing holiday during the February Half Term school holidays. The recently refurbished hotel was very good in almost every respect. The rooms, were very well appointed and comfortable although the bathrooms were rather small. The ski lockers were fitted with boot warmers and the overall layout was very well thought through. There was also plenty of parking adjacent to the hotel. Access to the ski slopes was very convenient and the overall location of the hotel was great. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only negative comment that we could make was regarding the main courses. The quality of the meat was poor for a 4 star hotel and quite often the meals were cold. Many of our meals were returned and there was no recognition of this. This was dissapointing because the breakfast, starter and dessert buffets were brilliant. The hotel only provided an option of 2 main courses so to be unable to provide these at a consistent standard was suprising. Overall we would recommend the hotel but would suggest on a bed and brekfast basis and enjoy a main meal on the mountain.
My wife and I chose this hotel for our first ski holiday, based on its above average appearance compared to similar ski hotels on offer. We were pleased with the overall presentation and cleanliness of the hotel. Despite being initially disappointed with our bar meal on arrival, the food was of good quality. There was generally a buffet selection for starter and desert, which did vary slightly each day, and then a choice of two different mains each day. Breakfast was a good buffet selection, although maybe lacking a little in variety by the end of the week. Previous reviews had stated the hotel was next to a busy road. The main road is at least a 5 minute walk and could not be heard. The hotel is on a minor side road, leading to the old town of Le Bez, but this had minimal traffic. It was a 10 minute walk to the main ski area, however this was preferable to give a quieter location. There is a red run next to the hotel, which can be viewed and accessed easily, with a ski lift a few hundred metres at the bottom. Overall, we would be happy to return to Le Grand Aigle.
very quiet position near slopes, not quite ski-in and out. but that was not a problem as was only about 50ft or so to the run down to the cabin. Bedroom very hot especially at night despite turning off the radiator in the room and in the bathroom. Room very comfortable and suited our needs after a day Skiing. Room was attended to daily - was a little worried about this having read some of the comments before we left - I need not have any concerns on this front. Would suggest that maybe more than 3 tea bags and 3 coffee pods are put into the rooms, especially when occupied by two people. superb ski/book lockers, was lovely to put warm boots on in a morning. Breakfast was adequate buffet, Evening meal was difficult at times, buffet to start but then was only a choice of a meat or fish dish, the vegetarian option was always grilled vegetables with cheese, not all people who are vegetarian like cheese - some are allergic. After 3 days of not being able to eat anything off the main menu the staff kindly asked what we would like to eat, they spoke to the chef who came up with an idea and subsequent nights, which was acceptable and must admit they went out of their way to try and help. Would suggest that it may help to put a V on buffet foods which are suitable for vegetarians as looking at the food it is not always obvious what it contains. All staff very polite and willing to help. Short walk into the town - not much to walk around, can recommend the pizza takeaway Le Repere. Did not use the Spa facilities so cannot comment The bar area is very comfortable with large comfy chairs and couches and even provide blankets shoud you need extra warmth. They have a huge log fire which looks amazing. Plus side was that it was also a NON Smoking hotel - :) For us the only let down was the food - don't let that put you off what is otherwise a great hotel
"Great allround hotel. "
Good position for slopes. Quite a tough red back, busy at times and snow gets lumpy. Green was closed. Good rooms, very clean and roomy with balcony. Bathroom little small but room nicely decorated and great storage/hanging for ski stuff. Coffee machine & fridge a bonus, but need to get milk at breakfast to put in fridge for coffee. Very warm hotel, don't need jumpers. Breakfast substantial. Dinner very good with choice of main - fish or meat all good quality. Buffet starter good with salads, soup, meats, cheeses. Desserts home made and lovely. Wine reasonable at €20 bottle start price. Service little haphazard, sometimes i.e. no water or bread offered, but we just asked or got it ourselves. Never in a rush anyway and lovely restaurant to spend time in. Staff very polite and helpful. Great holiday and ski area, will come back. Only 10 mins walk from vileneurve. Check out cocoon bar and 1420 wine bar upstairs from it, le swallow in old village v good, all nice for relaxed pre dinner drinks.
"Great quality and location"
Very well presented in an excellent position on the slopes with superb boot/ski locker room, including boot driers. Great spa although you need to book as spaces are limited to 2 couples at any one time. Everything you could possibly want at breakfast time too!
