Just come back from a wonderful 7 night stay in the Stella Alpina, a hotel with which it is hard to find fault. The hotel itself is a short walk from the centre of town, and superbly located for skiing - it is around 100 metres from the Clotes chairlift, and in good snow you can ski down almost to the front door. Another highlight for skiers is the ski/boot room located underneath the ski-rental shop next door to the hotel, which features heated boot racks, meaning you never have to go up the mountain the next morning in damp boots.
The staff are all superb, friendly and English-speaking, and seemed willing to accommodate most reasonable requests. The hotel itself has relatively few rooms, adding to the warm and personable feel. I stayed in a single room, with a comfortable (albeit somewhat narrow) single bed, which was relatively small but always cosy and warm. The shower always had hot water, always a godsend, but again the bathroom was very small (I had to sidestep to get between the toilet and sink and even then my legs brushed the sink).
I stayed half board and the food was absolutely excellent, with three course meals, four if you include the salad bar. There were two options every night for starter, main course and desert and every meal was great. Breakfast was continental, and again high quality with good choice.
Do note that here as in all hotels in the region a tourist tax is payable on departure, so make sure you save at least some of your Euros! At the time of writing this was 1,50€ per person per night.
All in all a very good hotel that made for a very enjoyable trip. One to look at if planning a trip to Sauze d'Oulx.
