Although the hotel is isolated from the town, it is actually up in the mountains or 20 minutes by car from Champery, the view and the cuisine are simply outstanding. It is obviously very quiet and you should take the demi pension at least (breakfast and dinner). Our room was large, simple and the view is spectacular. A part of the hotel has been transformed from a cable car station to a room with an amazing view and a large jacuzzi well done. From the hotel many possibilities for long walk, in a beautiful mountain pasture.

The hotel restaurant and terrace have fantastic mountain views across the valley. It is a good base for walking. Our room was unusual but comfortable. The basin and bath were separated from the rest of the bedroom by a screen formed from heating radiators, although the toilet had a door. Our « balcony » was a shared one, going around the hotel (an old ski lift station). We stayed 2 nights. The food (set menu) on the Saturday evening was a high quality three course meal with locally foraged ingredients. The food the following night was raclette; ok if you like melted cheese but quite a contrast. There is no real option other than to eat at the hotel in the evening. In fact the hotel didn’t ask us (or tell us the price) we just saw our names on the blackboard indicating our table number. The breakfast buffet was good, and we took ours up onto the terrace to enjoy the view. The walk down from the cable car to the hotel is quite steep, we were glad we had rucksacks rather than cases, especially when it came to go back up. There a few maintenance issues that would improve the hotel if they could be sorted out; the « blown » double glazing in a number of the windows in the lounge/restaurant prevents some tables from seeing the view and the lifted planks on the roof terrace are a trip hazard. However, overall it is a friendly, comfortable hotel in a spectacular setting.

This is a review for the Plein Ciel Restaurant on the Piste below the Planachaux lift. I am not sure that this is the same as the Plein Ciel Hotel. The restaurant is open only whilst the chair lifts and cable car are operating, so evening meals only on night skiing days. I have always been sceptical of the fashion for 'slow-cooking' eggs, but now that I have tried them at Plein Ciel, I like them. Sea Bass is an unlikely menu item in the middle of the Swiss Alps, but it was available here and very well prepared indeed. All the main courses were excellent and good sized portions. The prices are high, even for Switzerland, but the food is worth the cost. We were disappointed that the Osso Bucco was finished before we arrived, but we were there right at the end of their service. Service is friendly and swift. They even provide a quad-bike ride to and from the Cable Car.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Plein Ciel for 3 night this month as we were on a climbing and walking trip from Scotland. We drove our car over and there was ample parking - with some really quite fun roads up to the hotel! The staff were lovely and very accommodating and the food was delicious. We ate there every night - there is a set menu which could have been quite tricky - On our first evening cheese fondue was being served, personally I can't eat cheese but the waiter and chef were very helpful and put together a lovely fresh salad and cured meats for me instead. The rooms were clean with incredible views over the Dents Du Midi (which we were in the area to climb) and the Dents Blanche. All in all I'd recommend this hotel - I imagine it must be incredibly busy during Ski Season - we are keen to return in Winter as given the altitude of Plein Ciel (at 1800m) the views and scenery must be phenomenal.

My best friend and i visited in August for a friends Wedding on the roof in the summer - OH it was amazing! Gorgeous, kind staff, delicious food, wonderful location, really in the Alps!! GORGEOUS!! Those deck chairs on the roof for night time star viewing were PERFECT! Best advice is PREPARE well for a rough, steep, downhill walk with your luggage unless you have a car, or are traveling with a big group when the hotel will drive your bags!! It's even more difficult walking back up - but SO SO LUSH!
