"Great spot for experienced skiers"
Great place - mixing hotel and apartments on the edge of the resort - off the cairn blue run. A 10 min walk to the main shops and restaurant row - far enough not to be in "beer crazy town" but close enough to enjoy the resort. Perfect position for accessing the amazing 3 vallees - but only truly ski in/out if you are good enough to tackle a blue. It was mainly peaceful and tranquil - had some crazy guys booming out music in the afternoons but that didn't last long. Terrace has music on until 5ish otherwise all quiet. The apartment we had was a 3 bed duplex with a small balcony (room 3) overlooking the cairn piste - with the drinks terrace below. It's an amazing view. A double/king bed and two twin rooms All with en suites - one had a bath. None of the bedrooms have a piste view, and one bedroom is off the lounge through a slide door so no window of its own. Bathrobes slippers and towels - all great. Hair dryers in all rooms. The duplex element of the apartment is the entry lobby and hall with space for coats etc - then up a staircase to the main accommodation. Kitchen well stocked big fridge, full oven and microwave. Good dishwasher. Lots of cutlery and glasses - a real home from home. You get a welcome pack of dishwasher tablets/w-up liquid, a scourer etc. Huge TV in lounge but didn't use it - no TVs in bedrooms. Balcony only had 1 lounger on it - and was super small for 6 people. Bread delivery is fab. Totally delicious and delivered inside your room by hotel staff so no need to even open your door. We had a breakfast buffet one morning - 22e each and was ok. Ate in the restaurant once for dinner - nice but pricey. Good bread!!!! Bar/reception area is nice for drinks - bar staff were really friendly and nice. Terrace was beautiful in the afternoons. But a lot of cigarette butts all around the ski in/out area - which is fine for experienced skiers but really not for beginners - the blue is v v steep just after the hotel..... Ski lockers big and did the job. Ran off room key so v v simple. Ski shop was fab - they were v considerate and helpful - we went Saturday late afternoon - no queues at all. Pool is quite small and got v busy between 4.30pm and 6 - but our kids loved it for a splash, it was v clean. Only downside was that the wifi is a pain to get on and stay on - and it's slow - but honestly this is it - the place is great, we will Definitely come back. VT is a great resort. And had great snow still in second week of march....
"Good location but one bedroom too warm for good sleep."
The good: Very nice living space on our duplex apartment, with well equipped kitchen for four. Excellent ski rental in-house with great service Great ski in and out, and ski locker room. The not so good: Expensive and uninspired "fine dining" Karmin restaurant with too small portions and slow service. Sauna and pool separated either side of hotel entrance. Lounge area not very cosy - by the entrance and reception. Most importantly one bedroom was far too warm (25+ degrees), and since the window faced the main road, it could not be open at night. The staff could not do anything about this, and it prevented us from getting good sleep - hence the 3 stars.
"Luxury on the slopes"
We stayed here in March on a self catering basis. Much better than the usual hotels we stay in with bread delivered to your room daily if you wish and a sauna spa and pool downstairs. They provide slippers bathrobe towels for the pool as well as your regular sheets and towels. The ski shop man is extraordinarily helpful having serviced our skis overnight and adjusted one of our own boots. The initial slope leaving the hotel is not suitable for beginners and is very busy. The lockers for the skis and boots are state of the art roomy and heated. The rooms are hot but do dry all your wet clothes. Kitchen is also well stocked with equipment. If travelling by bus do note it's a 400m walk which would be ok if you didn't bring your own equipment. Lovely hotel.
Nice Place and good service. Ski in ski out. Ski rental in the hotel. Must get parking in advance. Nice pool and sauna but they close at 8pm. Worth getting the 80 mr room if you need the space and kitchen.
"Getting a bit tired"
We stayed as two couples in a 2 bed apartment. Nice enough, but nothing special. We last stayed here 2 years ago and it feels as though there's been little done to keep the place fresh. Nice reception area, decent bar/restaurant, a good bootroom with heated lockers and very immediate access to the slopes. 2 bed apartments maybe a little cramped for 2 couples. Wifi temperamental. Apartment could have been cleaner on arrival (dirty bathroom bin) but pretty much does what it promises for reasonable price. Note that whilst the block is absolutely ski in/out for those who've skied before it's not great for absolute beginners.
