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

Great little gem in the heart of town and short walk to slopes. Rooms and bathrooms are tight, and bathrooms could use a little more ventilation, but these are very acceptable given it's a 2 star hotel after all. Service is impeccable - Pascale is fantastic - and breakfast very decent. Had a lovely stay and would definitely stay again... More

Overall a really fantastic experience- the hostess Dani is wonderful, the hotel is incredibly well located right by the mountain and ski hire facilities- the rooms are small but very clean. The breakfast is well worth getting up for. Bravo.

Nice simple hotel with excellent hosts, clean rooms, and decent continental breakfast. Right in the middle of town so very handy for eating out and only a minute walk to the main ski lifts. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a simple hotel in Val D'Isere

I have stayed at Le Kern for the last 5 years and have always found it an excellent hotel, situated in the centre of Val d'Isere. The staff are top draw and always go out of their way to make you feel welcome and to ensure that you have a good stay. I thoroughly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is aging, but very well cared, extremely clean and very pleasant. The service was wonderful. The location is very central and convenient. In extremely expensive Val d'Isere this hotel represented good value.

I stayed here for 10 nights in february. It was a really good boutique 2 star option in a very central location. The fact is was central meant that occasionally it was a little noisy- with revellers below in the street falling over- but that is to be expected when you are bang in the middle of things. The rooms... More
