The Alpe d'Huex tourist bureau and ski slopes is a five-minute stroll from the Hotel Grandes Rousses. Lac du Verney Lake is approximately 12 miles from the premises.
You can't have it any better where convenience is concerned at this guest house. The location is ideal and the lift is just across the street making it easy to come back and forth. After a long day of skiing or hiking, you can enjoy the spa and relax.
App And Wi-Fi Connection
Thankfully, the Wi-Fi is great. They even have an app with plenty of good up-to-date information that comes in very handy.
The View And Good Food
The views are great and the guest house is spacious. Not all rooms have a view so make sure you ask if any are available when making your booking. The restaurant is quite good with an a la carte menu every evening. The quality of the food is consistent and the wine cellar is fantastic. Their collection of valuable wines at reasonable prices is noteworthy.
Take Your Pick
There are no separate lockers in the ski room, which basically means that anyone can come in and pick up your stuff.
Parking Is Not Guaranteed
Parking is limited as the space is restricted. Don't be surprised if you are asked to park your vehicle at a car park further down the road that charges an exorbitant daily price.
Common Etiquette And Courtesies
You may find that the guest house personnel are not very friendly. They appear a bit aloof and offer no gestures of friendliness. Lessons in hospitality should be heeded. In many instances, they appear oblivious to their shortcomings. It would be nice if the menu had English subtitles.
