Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

This very popular family-run hotel offers something quite unique in any ski resort. It's run by a British couple who provide an extremely welcoming great atmosphere and is a favouite due to the quality of the food.

The hotel is located in Erts, which is just 5 minutes' ride by the free ski shuttle bus to Arinsal and the main gondola.

The food is one of the most popular aspects of the hotel. There's a continental buffet and cooked breakfast with UK favourites like British sausages and baked beans which really sets you up for the day.

The evening meals are themed dinner buffets including Sunday roast, Tex-Mex, Chinese, Spanish, Italian and Indian. They all include meat and fish dishes, fresh salads and homemade soups and desserts.

The hotel has a comfortable lounge and bar and bedrooms are well-decorated and spacious, and all have been refurbished over the last couple of years.

A complimentary ski shuttle service is available on request Arinsal, Grandvalira and Arcalis and so the Palarine is a great base to explore the Andorran ski areas (supplement payable locally for Grandvalira and Arcalis passes).

Arinsal

Arinsal, located towards Andorra’s western border with Spain, is part of Andorra’s Vallnord ski region which includes the Pal and Arinsal  ski areas, with runs totalling almost 60 miles. There are two separate villages. Arinsal is more lively and La Massana but both are family-orientated and offer some of the best-value skiing anywhere in Europe. Great hospitality, long sunny days and plenty of well-prepared confidence building runs make it an ideal destination for beginners and intermediates, whilst the radical ‘Freestyle Area’ caters well for snowboarders. The Arinsal gondola accesses the Arinsal area whilst Pal is reached from La Massana but both ski areas are linked by cable car There is also a nearby intermediate ski area of Arcalis, not covered by the lift pass. Arinsal’s skiing is in a narrow open bowl, and its neighbour Pal has predominantly wooded slopes with plenty of tree skiing. Nightlife in Arinsal is lively with a big choice of bars and clubs operating well into the small hours. Families are also well catered for in Arinsal, with an excellent kindergarten and child lift pass offers.
