4 Reviews for Hotellerie de Mascognaz

  1. Sooty Kroustis on

    A fantastic hotel – our family and the large group we were with really enjoyed our stay. The spa is wonderful (the pool and jacuzzi are larger than the pictures suggest and were brilliant after a day on the slopes) and the food and wine were great. Standout though are the staff. We could not have been looked after better by the team – from Didier & the other drivers who took us up and down to Hector’s team in the restaurant – Costantin, Ariana, Antonio & Ignacio. They were all professional, patient, good humoured and brilliant company for the whole week – a credit to the hotel. The only improvement to make would be a connection across the mountain to the Crest ski slope to make the place easier to access for skiers. Otherwise, thanks to all at the hotel for making our stay so enjoyable.

    Sooty Kroustis’s hotel rating: 5
  2. Karen Jordan on

    What a magical place. The ride up to the hotel in the land rover was an adventure, but the Ski-doo ride (once the snow was deeper) was even better!
    The staff were friendly and welcoming, and the hotel has a great atmosphere. The food was delicious and there is a daily changing menu. They even provided a special vegetarian menu for me every night. Pre-dinner drinks can be taken in the building with reception with a welcoming open fire and a really cosy small bar behind reception.
    Some of the rooms and the spa are a short walk from the main building, but this just adds to the charm of the place especially when its snowing.
    We chose to stay 4 nights in Champoluc and 3 at the Mascognaz, which worked well, as it does take a little longer to get to the slopes each day from Mascognaz. As usual the service of the Ski2 team was excellent.

  3. Tamara gray on

    A rare and special place. Narnia! A place which withholds its history while giving modern and excellent service. The buildings have been allowed to retain their exterior charm while inside all is as you could want.
    Delicious lunch menu. Evening menu not quite as delicious. Not a hotel for children as the food is a little complex. The spa and gym are just perfect after a day on the slopes and the walk over to is is totally magical. A place to return again and again.

  4. Graham McGregor-Smith on

    I loved the drama of this place – on arrival we were ferried up the slope to the hotel in our own personal skidoo, to the rustic huddle of buildings peeping out from under huge snowfall. The picture windows of our suite on the ground floor of Lo Stadel framed the most gorgeous views over the Champoluc valley. Dinners in the restaurant at Lo Miete were to a high standard, with plenty of choice on the wine list. Breakfast was well-presented with more than sufficient choice. We enjoyed the complimentary selection of meats and cheeses that were presented in the bar area to accompany our pre’s each evening. The combination of this Hotellerie & Ski-2’s on and off piste hospitality made for a fantastic break. We’re already planning our return visit for next year.

    Graham McGregor-Smith’s hotel rating: 5
