Really great hotel. Lovely reception on arrival- we had a bottle of champagne waiting in our room as we told them it was our honeymoon. The bar is lovely- all traditional wood and sheepskins with a log fire. Great service if a tad pricey. The restaurant was out of this world. The service was brilliant and the the food was 4* quality every night- a really good selection throughout the week - we had no desire to eat elsewhere as the food was so good. Breakfasts were also very good with a great choice and decent coffee. Ski in and out- even on a snowboard it was all but 2 minutes walk. One complaint was the tiny locker room- very cramped. The lockers are very good and secure with high tech locks but there is no space and getting ready each morning is carnage. Rooms are small and not particularly fancy but have tv, dryer and a bath which is a real bonus. Bed was v comfy and generally the room was fine. The bijou spa area has a hot tub and sauna and steam room. Overall a really great hotel. The restaurant and bar make it.

The Sherpa is really, really good and probably has the best food in a ski hotel anywhere. The food really was fantastic, it was mostly traditional French stuff and they did a fondue night which was good. You always had soup and a salad and you just gave the guy your choice for the main course at breakfast so they knew what to cook. The sweet table was incredible with something like 25-30 different sweets. People from the town often came up to use the restaurant but sometimes didn’t get a seat as it was so popular and the guests nearly always ate in.
The rooms were small but very nicely looked after with lovely thick robes. The health suite was also small but very good. There’s a lovely little bar and they did a nice champagne reception on one of the nights (I think the Sunday).
It’s ski in ski out which was the main reason I chose it. There’s a very good boot room and drying system where you hang your boots upside down and when you put your boots on in the morning they’re not only dry but warm!
We had very good service all week and the staff were always keen to look after us. We went over on the overnight train and got there at 9 in the morning, thinking we were going to have to dump our stuff in storage somewhere but within half an hour our room was ready!
