Long weekend trekking around Aussois
Very welcoming staff at the hotel with a super-friendly dog called Neige (he is a gentle giant, Bernese Mountain dog, very docile and is only around in the afternoon :) ) We used the hotel as a base to hike around the Aussois area over a long weekend in August. Breakfast was a great continental buffet to get you started with all the usuals including a machine to boil eggs. There is a free car park literally next to the hotel which is very convenient. At the end of a hard day hiking, the rooftop terrace is great - this offers panoranomic views of the valley either from sunbed or nordic hottub; there is also a sauna on the corner with tinted glass allowing you privacy whilst providing a view up the mountains. We did not eat at the hotel restaurant so cannot comment.
Pros: Well located in centre of Aussois; Friendly, helpful staff; Great view from rooftop terrace; Lovely dog
Cons: Minor comment: improve shampoo bottles in the bathrooms - both larger bottles (so easier to get stuff out); and seperate conditioner botttle
Location: Located centrally in Aussois with car park round the corner Less than 10mins to main lift station 15min drive to "twin lakes" trek point
