Having read a few reviews for Hotel L'Aguille Rouge before we booked it, I must say it lived up to them all and overall we were very satisfied. Amongst the reasons we chose this hotel and resort was the altitude (so better chance of good snow this year) and there were 3 of us, making it diffuclt to book a hotel (usually requiring 2 or 4 people). However, 3 of us shared a room, which was just about adequately sized, although I was expecting worse from reviews I had read. That was probably the only negative for this hotel; positives included the wide range of food in the large restaurant (compared to catered chalets we've used in the past, a definite win), the food token system (so you could choose to have lunch or dinner, or both), the staff (all friendly, smiling, helpful) and closeness to slopes (step outside the locker room and you were there). The resort was great, a bit of a 3D maze to negotiate your way around but when you got the hang of it, there were many great bars to find, a particular favourite was 'Irish Bar' The Crazy Fox (live music, great atmosphere and Sky Sports). I would consider returning to this hotel, if we had not skied the slopes the previous year too.
