A popular hotel in a very central location. Comfortable and relaxed.
Situated in a very central, sunny position overlooking the main square of Champoluc, the 3* Hotel Castor consistently proves to be one of our most popular hotels.
Run by an Englishman, Herman and his Italian wife, Beatrice, the Castor offers comfortable accommodation within a 6 minute walk of the main lift. Its friendly atmosphere and warm welcome will appeal to most.
Bedrooms are furnished in a traditional alpine style with wooden furniture. All rooms have en-suite bathroom, many with baths. Some have balconies with pleasant views across the square and down the Ayas Valley. Two rooms (which have recently been renovated) interconnect with each other, perfect for those travelling with young children.
The hotel has a large, bright dining room where a good and varied menu (with choices at most courses) is served. The menu includes a selection of homemade desserts. An extensive wine list includes both local wines and wines from around the world.
The bar at the hotel (open to non-residents) is one of the most popular in the village and Hotel Castor ‘music nights’ are legendary!
Herman and Beatrice have three young children of their own, so families are well catered for, as well as individuals and groups.
There is a selection of children’s play equipment in the garden, particularly popular during the last few weeks of the season when parents are able to enjoy a post-ski drink on the sunny terrace whilst the children enjoy the swings! In addition the hotel now has a children’s playroom below the lounge bar.
