Unlike some hotels in close proximity to the ski lifts, this one does not cost a fortune.
A bit shabby chic, but great food and service. We particularly liked the large dining room tables encouraging singles and couples to mix and get to know other skiers. Travelled with Snowcoach, who now have new coaches, very comfortable and give a bonus extra 2 days ski-ing. In early April the pistes were virtually empty. Sauna was broken when we were there, the only downside.

Room Tip: Rooms at back have best views.

We arrived at the hotel after a horrendous journey with Snowcoach. Head office had not booked us a ferry crossing and whilst driving through France in torrential rain, the windscreen wipers broke!
The saving grace of our holiday was the hotel which was expertly run by Peter and Joey. It is not a luxury hotel, but was spotlessly clean, well run and the food was superb. All the staff were really helpful and friendly, nothing was too much for them.

I would definitely return to this hotel, but would find alternative ways of getting there.

Room Tip: When booking ask for a riverside room with bath, which helps after a hard day on the slopes.

If you can get to this hotel without the horror journey of Snowcoach, then this hotel is a superb choice. The hotel is run professionally by very experienced couple, Joey and Peter. Whilst not at the luxury end of the market, the hotel is spotlessly clean, well organised, and extremely warm and friendly.
Riverside rooms overlook the slopes and main chair lifts - ask for a room with a bath to ease aching legs before taking advantage of Happy Hour in the well stocked bar. The food is of a high standard and very plentiful with an extensive range of cold or hot breakfast, and a four course evening meal with wine that gets replaced without asking. Afternoon tea and cakes are dangerously good too.
All the staff are knowledgeable and friendly - nothing is too much trouble. Just try to avoid the shambolic journey with the ever feckless Snowcoach!

Room Tip: Ask for riverside with a bath

We have traveled with Snowcoach several times before but the hotel management this time were the best by far. Peter and his wife inspired the whole team at the hotel to give a very friendly welcome and the hotel ran like clockwork. This is a budget holiday but if you allow for the odd thing not working quite how you would you expect, the whole holiday experience was well delivered and very well organized. The food was plentiful and wholesome and the restaurant setting is very informal which allows you to share skiing experience's with the other guests.

The skiing in Val Cenis is very good and the slopes very much quieter than in the large resorts. We went at Easter and there were virtually no queues at the lifts.

Traveling by coach gives you extra time on holiday and on the slopes but the travel arrangements do tend to be chaotic with Snowcoach and the drivers are well meaning but fail to deliver much information

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony which gives views over the river and onto the slopes

This is a warm and friendly Snowcoach hotel, which I hope to visit again. Managers Peter and Joey are very attentive to guests needs, and are keen skiers themselves. Rooms are comfortable and clean and the food is excellent (hats off to chef Craig). I also enjoyed the very hot sauna after a day's skiing and on one occasion the outside hot tub - it broke down mid-week. After dinner entertainment is also provided - quiz; games, etc. - and the staff and some guests don fancy dress for the final evening dinner.

As for the skiing, don't be fooled by the apparently smallish piste area. The skiing on piste is very varied from high mountain runs (down from 2800m) to in the trees trails, and the north facing slopes hold the snow very well. The bonus is the large amount of off piste terrain available within the piste area, especially after a good fall of new snow. There is also Bonneval an easy bus ride away with the top lift reaching just over 3000m.Easily enough variety for a week's stay.
