It's actually quite encouraging to see that other reviewers have come to the same conclusion as us. It gives credibility to TA's other output and allows me to endorse other reviewers of this hotel.
* beds are hard. Very hard. In the middle if the night, the floor is a genuine alternative!
* bedding is sheet and blanket with a solitary lumpy pillow. Sounds fussy but after a day's vigorous skiing (or golf in the summer) it doesn't seem much to ask for something soft.
* there is no food served in the evenings,
* some of the staff can appear a little off-ish
The plus points:
* great location, in the centre of pleasant town and yet just off the main street to avoiding the inevitable late night frivolities. Cable car to Plan Checroute (main ski area) is just 5 mins walk away.
* breakfast was good 'continental style' as we brits would call it. Anything cooked is extra. Coffee industrial strength if you like that kind of thing. Hot chocolate you could honeslty stand a spoon up in ...again, for those that like
* sauna / exercise / shower area very pleasant and new
* staff are genuinely pleasant and will help if asked nicely. Night manager particularly helpful with restaurant bookings.
* rooms; clean, simple, cleaned daily. Nothing fancy.
Overall, this is an inexpensive 3 -star hotel ....if you want plush with the trimmings you are in the wrong place! If you want a good base to ski from, spend time with friends and crash out before doing it all again, the Hotel Centrale is perfectly adequate.
TIP: bring a spare pillow!
Note to hotel: The only thing that stops your hotel being a very is the beds. Go on, you know it makes sense! You could even charge a euro or two a night for a duvet...!
