Stayed in val d'isere for the first time having previously chosen hotels/apartments in Tignes. La Foret suited our budget and we were not disappointed. Rooms were basic but comfortable. Staff were very friendly and accommodating and the food was excellent. 5 minute walk to the piste and plenty of bars/amenities nearby. Val itself is pretty pricey in general. If I... More

Visit here in January 2015 for one week. We were half board during our stay the breakfast served was lovely a buffet with many choices. Although the room was candle lit in the morning which made visibility and motivation to ski difficult! The hotel offered a set menu for the evening which was faultless always dishes that where filled with... More

Ok breakfast - Good location - you can easily walk to the lifts etc. Negatives: - - Dated and basic accommodation. Really poorly thought out and with some... More

We had a lovely stay at La Foret over February half term. The food is second to none! For breakfast there was a choice of hot cooked sausage, bacon, eggs (soft and hard boiled as well as scrambled), beans, breads, fruit, yoghurts, cold meats and cheese so something to suit everyone! We also had a weather report at breakfast which... More

I think it's time the "official description" of this hotel changed. It's exactly the same on a million different sites! If you have ever ski'd in France you will know what to expect in terms of accommodation. Very basic room, just beds. Not even a chair to sit on. Literally two hooks between four people. Small rail with coat hangers.... More

Fantastic hotel to head to for a ski holiday with friends or family. The food is hands-down delicious – breakfast and supper both equally as good and great energy for lots of skiing. House red wine is delicious, as are the G+T’s. Perfectly situated for ski and town. The staff are great, really good fun, polite, accommodating. All speak good... More
