So these guys have thought of everything re. Service. It's simply the best service I’ve ever received at any hotel in my life. Sometimes it's just too much or not enough ... but this was perfect. The evening concierge was superb, he was like a wizard, anything we wanted .. he got it.
The rooms were really lovely. I think we had just a normal room, 1 main room with a super king sized bed, couple chairs and a massive bathroom filled with La Prairie shower and bath products. The pillows on the bed were not very comfortable but not to fear, they have any kind of pillow you could ever want :-) The one problem we had with our room was that it was on the ground floor, outside the entrance to the boot room and lift and it was really noisy in the morning. For some stupid reason the people above us were up at 6am walking around in their ski boots, i mean seriously. The lifts didn't open until about 8:30, keeners who don't know how to use a boot room. Not a good room for people who like a bit of a party and up a bit later for breakfast and ski. Oh, and the rooms were soooooo hot, need to get the wizard to turn the temperature down for a comfortable sleep. Blackout blinds are great!
We had 1/2 board which meant breakfast was included as well as either lunch or dinner. The breakfast was average to be honest ... but the lunch and dinner menu was brilliant, really really nice! I was impressed with the food in the restaurant.
We got our skis from the ski shop in the hotel, ok ... WORNG price. Don't use this ski shop if you are renting skis. For 2 of us to hire skis and poles for 8 days it cost us 1520 euros. It's more than the cost of 1 pair of skis.
The hotel bar was dead, usually my boyfriend and I were the only ones in there. You really need to get a lift into 1850 if you want any atmosphere while drinking.
There is an outdoors hot tub, it's amazing when it's snowing (and the bar guys will serve you drinks while you are in it if you ask nicely)
The hotel is quite far from 1850 town itself ... the have shuttle cars to take you down and bring you back up. These are perfect, we never had to wait for more than 10 minutes at either end and to the best of my knowledge, they are 24 hours.
Overall it was a great hotel, I would defo go again.
