Our stay at the Fairmont Tremblant was truly memorable. On our arrival late at night, we were greeted by friendly and courteous staff. Check in was quick and simple. The lobby area was especially welcoming with a beautiful open fire that become a favourite place to relax around after a day spent on the slopes. The hotel was kept very clean which must be a hard job considering all the messy skiers traipsing through the hotel at all hours.
The whole holiday was a little bit of a luxurious treat for ourselves before settling down and starting a family. So on booking we opted for a deluxe room, we were under the impression only those with a deluxe room got a bath. This turned out to be false as even the basic rooms had a bath! We were so impressed with the room we didn't mind. Our room could actually sleep 6 people, it had 2 double beds and a huge sofa bed. The room was enormous, about the size of my first flat! It was furnished in a very nice simple style, the heaters were easy to use and we had a drying closet for all the ski gear. We visited one of our friends room and they had opted for a basic package. Still very nice and comfortable, all the same facilities, the room was smaller and they didn't have a 2nd spare bed or a sofa, they just had a chair. If we visited again, we would use the basic rooms and save some cash. We had tea and coffee making facilities with a kettle and peculator, we had more than enough for each day and these were replenished regularly. The bathroom was lovely, we had a decent sized bath, which I find is rare in hotel's and a very powerful shower which really helped soothe the aching limbs. Lots of lovely toiletries and these were replenished everyday. The room had a hairdryer and you could even borrow extras like straightners and foot spas from reception.
Pool and Spa
We loved the pool and spa area and found it was very relaxing after a day of heavy exercise on the mountain. There was a swimming pool which was luke warm, a relaxation pool which was warm, a really nice hot tub which was hot and a cold plunge pool ( I didn't use that one!). These were all outside and it was a lovely feeling to be cosy and relaxed in the water while snow falls on your head. Inside there was a sauna and steam room, an internal pool and a gym. All these areas were kept spotlessly clean and a constant lifeguard was on duty. To our surprise you could even order drinks from the pool and as a group we enjoyed the odd cocktail while swimming and relaxing.
We were a party of 8 friends and couples with a truly mixed skiing ability. I was a complete novice although improved considerably by the end of the week. One of our party is a qualified instructor so that helped with our improvement all round. One of the best things about the Fairmont Hotel is it's position within the resort. It truly was a ski in and out hotel. You left the boot room and could ski straight to the lift and at the end of the day the slope ended at the back entrance of the hotel.
