While our room was definitely on the small side, the rest of the chalet more than makes up for this. The pool/sauna/steam room really make a difference after a day on slopes. Also the huge log burner is a great centre piece. Our friends stayed in Chalet Fjord just down the road, and considering we paid maybe £80 more for... More

I stayed here for a week in April and had a great time. The rooms were all clean and well looked after. The staff were very friendly and helpful, answering any questions we had and making sure we had a good stay. The food was lovely, a good selection on the menu each night. I also enjoyed the wellness suite... More

I have based this review on both hotel La Gelinotte and provider Alpine Elements whom sold this package as premium rated hotel for our xmas ski holiday. The hotel itself is standard; a nice/warm/cosy feel with that alpine charm but in parts very dated. The bar area was nice to relax with coffee/cake served daily and happy hour. There is... More

The staff at Hotel La Gelinotte were extremely helpful, courteous and had a genuine interest in ensuring our stay was as enjoyable as possible. All the staff were proactive, right from the moment we arrived, they were quick to identify any individual requirements/needs and ensuring that we had an enjoyable holiday. I needed an accessible fridge for my child's medication,... More

We stayed week 29th March to 5th April, we were worried about previous bad reviews posted about the Hotel on this site, but can honestly say we had a great stay, the Manager Andy and his team could not have been more helpful. The facilities are very good, we were in one of the "new" rooms and were very comfortable.... More

I must admit I was a bit dubious having looked at the reviews for this hotel before leaving the UK, but was pleasantly surprised when there (March 15th -22nd). Don't get me wrong, its not perfect...but netherless a comfortable mid-range hotel run by staff who really do go out of their way to make your stay a positive experience. The... More

We stayed there last week 16th to 22nd March and we can’t help enthusing about the quality of attention and warm friendliness of all the staff at all times during our week at the hotel. The layout of the hotel is quite amazing and easy to get lost as there seems nooks and crannies and rooms and stairs in all... More

There is a balance between the extremely different reviews written. Here goes:- Flight/transfer - fine. Sunday transfer brilliant as you get empty Saturday pistes - 3 times up the Grand Motte cable car without queuing once. Hotel - nicely arranged over split levels but not luxurious. Not that different from the Fjord except - en-suite toilet, bar, seating areas, mini-bus... More
