Have been meaning to leave a review for months but been busy! Where do I start?! From the welcome to the departure everything was taken care of - this was by far the most stress free ski trip I've been on. Lovely food, great skiing and good accommodation in my favourite part of the alps! Well done guys where do... More

We took a long weekend at Aravis Lodge - the weather was perfect, with lots of snow and sun, which turned out to be the highlight of the trip. I feel that the very glowing reviews already received were, perhaps, somehow written with 'rose-tinted' glasses on ... ? My impression, for what it is, is rather different. Firstly, I was... More

For me being a skiing holiday first timer, the Ski Weekender team were absolutely amazing. From the pick up at the airport the team were polite and full of good info. Greeted at the lodge by the team, we were kitted out with Boots and Skis in the in house hire centre, how convenient is that!! Food was excellent, three... More

First time with Skiweekender. Stand-outs for me were the ease/timing of transfers, time on the slopes, the food and of course, the staff. The room that my son and I shared was adequate, though the bathroom was pretty pokey. Location is OK and the transfers and ski buses got you where you needed to be with little fuss, but when... More

We have never skied in Europe, always in North America. So I was pleasantly surprised by the team, and the lodge. The food is excellent, afternoon tea not to be missed. The team, from the Manager Alli, to Nick in the boot room, Daz & Jonathan behind the bar, the Drivers, housekeepers Aoife and colleagues, and not forgetting Tom &... More

This is the second time we have done a trip with SkiWeekender (Thursday to Monday). Work brilliantly. The operation is very slick from the moment they pick up up at Geneva airport. Lodge & bedrooms are basic but clean and have all you need. Staff are very friendly - ski hosting is a real bonus. Although breakfast is basic it... More

Good place to stay, customer service second to none. Good food and wonderful cakes. Dutch accommodating staff. Hosting good too. Our daughters had a rather cold room, we would avoid that room in the future, otherwise perfect.

Have spent three holidays at Aravis Lodge and will definately go again. Great friendly service, fab food, excellent organisation, they really do think of everything and nothing is too much trouble. A warm friendly welcome. The accomodation is quite basic but perfectly clean and adequate.

I truly enjoyed my stay in this small skiing lodge less than an hour an half drive from Geneva. Food was really good (English food mainly with some good French add-ons), the room was clean and tidy and the staff were all very friendly. The guys at ski weekender are really organised and offering a good service. Ski hosting service... More
