If you are looking for a very welcoming and well placed place to stay in Val d’Isere, then look no further than Hotel Le Kern. Don’t be put off by the fact that it is has a 2-star rating. The rooms may be quite simply furnished but the welcome from and attention to detail of the staff is second to... More

The first thing we would say about Le Kern is that the staff are so friendly and welcoming and made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. The rooms and facilities are quite basic which is reflected in the price but everything is kept really nice and clean. Breakfasts are nice and generous with a good atmosphere. The... More

The Kern is a small 2 Star hotel in the heart of Val d'Isere and although not my first choice turned out to be both adequate and very friendly. The rooms are quite small and the showers a bit difficult but for a weeks skiing without too many niceties it was ideal.

March 2015 was my third time at Le Kern, having stayed there in March 2011 and March 2013. This is a charming, unpretentious small hotel centrally located in Val d'Isere, just steps away from Val Village and the ski lifts. The welcome is warm and friendly. Pascale and Dany, who run the place, are lovely ladies who go out of... More

Hotel Le Kern is very centrally located in Val D'Isere, just a couple of minutes to loads of restaurants and 5 minutes to the main ski area. The hotel is kept impeccably clean by the very pleasant hosts and it is very comfortable and warm. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a friendly clean... More

Brilliantly located for the slopes and the town, and opposite a very good ski hire shop called Skimium Room was on third floor ( no lift!) and was cosy but basic. Bathroom needs updating, the shower was gorgeous but couldn't support it's own weight when off! Lovely toiletries. Twin beds with two duvets, not the double we had booked which... More

Well the highlight - apart from breakfast, which is not saying much as I tend to get disproportionately excited about any hotel breakfast - was the service. Pascale was charming and hilarious and treated us with a disarming combination of warmth and irreverent humour. The location of the hotel really couldn't be better, the rooms very "mignon" yet spacious and... More

We have been skiing in Val D'isere for the last 10 years and Le Kern has been a regular choice for our hotel. It does not pretend to be anything other than a two star hotel and is superb at what it does. The environment is quaint and quirky and the staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly. The location only... More

If you are looking for a warm friendly place to stay which is clean and tidy from top to bottom then look no further than Le Kern. Breakfast is simple but has everything you need to set you up for a great day on the slopes. Location is great, near lovely restaurants, a spar round the corner and the slopes... More

We had been to Val 3 years ago and our eyes had watered at the prices. However we got a good deal for January 2015 and decided to go again, mainly because of the fantastic skiing. From Dublin it's easier than booking to Val Claret ( my personal favourite). This hotel was warm and friendly. The boot room is heated... More
