“Super-friendly, contemporary hotel and spa in the heart of popular Les Gets”
Bedrooms are all ensuite, with lots of handy hooks and ample wardrobe space for ski clobber. Walls are wood-lined, bed linen snow white, and each bedroom door is appropriately Alpine, covered with cow skin. Many rooms have balconies, with big views out across the pretty slopes of Les Gets.
There are various categories to choose from. Double/twin options are Classic and Prestige; Room 12 is an especially lovely Classic with a bathtub and wraparound balcony. We stayed in the huge Penthouse, which sleeps 8 people in 4 bedrooms and has a spectacular balcony with sun-drenched, south-facing views, plus a big living space (complete with purple chairs) and kitchen facilities. There are also Triples and Family rooms.
Rates are half-board: breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner (except on Wednesdays, which is the chef's night off, so you'll need to eat out). The style of the food is gimmick-free, modern British and French cuisine, presented decoratively and featuring huge flavours. Talented chef Roddy previously worked at The Pompadour, one of Edinburgh's Michelin-starred restaurants, and his experience shows. We had a faultless smoked salmon tartare with avocado puree and radish salad to start, followed by a meltingly delicious pan-roast monkfish tail with fine herb risotto and cockles. Despite the top food, as with the rest of the hotel, the atmosphere is relaxed rather than stuffy or formal.
There are lots of excellent restaurants on the slopes for lunch, serving up hearty Savoyard fare, and other options in town for chef's night off.
Breakfasts are a Continental buffet, including homemade fruit compotes, fresh pastries and delicious hot chocolate. Cooked options are available, too: scrambled eggs and bacon or a daily-changing special.
Families are welcome but there are no specific kids' activities/areas, so the hotel is best suited to older children and teenagers. Little ones are not allowed in the spa and there are lots of glass tables and concrete stairs that aren't toddler-friendly.
