Has anyone stayed at the above? Reviews difficult to find, we only want somewhere cheap for 4 nights and this seems to fit the bill, the only thing we're bothered about is how easy it is to get on the slopes, can anyone advise? Couple of our group will be in ski school at campo smith so wanting it to be easy for them to get there and google maps isn't really helping! Thanks

We spent 4 or 5 nights in the Campo Smith carpark in our motorhome back in February and walked the dog all around the area.. It's no more than a brisk 4 minute walk from the hotel, over the footbridge opposite to the carpark, and up to the lift. The extra minute by road might be worth it if there is ice on the, very, humpbacked footbridge.

Although there is just the one lift at Campo Smith and all the schools use it, it was only busy first thing as most instructors keep the lessons up in the middle zone. Most of the lifts to the very top are fairly steep drags. All the runs this side of the village are tree lined and very sheltered except for the extreme top. The pistes at the far end were virtually empty, even with fresh overnight snow.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

They were still building this a year ahead of the Olympics last time we visited Bardonecchia and as @BoardieK mentioned it's just a short walk upto the lifts so a good option for a short stay.

I've not stayed here but I have walked past it.

As mentioned it is a short walk to the campo Smith ski area, but it is also on the free ski bus route and you can hire ski lockers at bottom of slopes if you didn't want to walk with equipment.
