Family suites are available and also include a kitchenette with a fridge and complimentary tea and coffee facilities.

The lounge bar is the heart of the hotel; sit back, relax and enjoy your favourite tipple on a comfy sofa in front of a roaring fire. Our in-house DJ helps the perfect ambiance and will seamlessly adjust the beat to fit the mood. The lounge bar leads out onto our upper terrace and Jacuzzi deck, where you can book a free private session for your group, perfect to unwind after a long day on the slopes. If you don’t want to get your hair wet, simply enjoy a drink in the sun at our outdoor bar with views towards the Saulire summit. The lower terrace is home to Café del Mott, our Barbecue restaurant where guests can enjoy a hearty but affordable lunch in the sun with our great value set menus. Our DJ provides mellow tunes to ensure a great atmosphere and our heaters will keep you toasty even when the sun is hiding.
