Tignes Le Lavachet Reviews
Hotel looking a bit tired. Staff very helpful and responsive. Food inconsistent and portions small - on such an active holiday customers need good quality food, well cooked and presented. Le Lavachet is a good location - ski bus great to and from Tignes le Lac and Val Claret. Would stay there again.
