Another warm welcome from the Hotel Athena staff for the 5th year running. Three nights in early January with family of five. Two great rooms, clean & warm. Went half board for the first time and weren't disappointed. Good choice with the chef providing an alternative choice for the kids on the one night they didn't fancy what was on... More

Normally a hotel of this standard would not rate 5 stars, but everybody at the hotel really cared. The receptionist was brilliant and went out of her way to make me welcome. The hotel has had a recent face lift, so the large rooms are pleasant and comfortable. Even note paper on the desk ~ a first for a 3... More

We were a bit dissappointed on arrival, as having booked a superior double room, we discovered that our room had two single beds. When we requested the bed be changed for a double, we were then told that the superior rooms do not actually come with double beds, however the single beds can be made up as a double if... More

The friendly staff made our holidayl. The hotel itself is clean and has everything a Skier needs. Hot showers, good Food and nice hot tub and sauna in basement. Do your homework, brides les baines is not a Ski resort - it is a gateway to the Ski area. If you are happy with this then you will not be... More

An excellent quality family hotel with comfortable roomy bedrooms and an excellent cuisine served by very friendly staff. Travelled there in February 2015 with 2 friends. Only down side is the rather small lounge area which seats around 6/7 people only, at a squeeze. Free Internet in the lounge and very reasonable prices charged for drinks. Short 5 minute walk...

Visited in Jan 2014 for a four night stay with a group of eight. Four years running with groups ranging from two to twelve. This year nothing has changed which is exactly what we wanted as the value, cleanliness and service is excellent. The mini spa in the basement is excellent at the end of a days skiing. Great location... More

We stayed here for a week's skiing in february. We had a family room which was more like a mini suite, with a hallway, main double bedroom, bathroom and a second bedroom with bunkneds. This works brilliantly when staying with children, which we were. The room was comfortable and had a balcony. We were on the second floor and it... More

initially we had a reservation at some other hotel, but they were completely full, so they took to Athena for one night. I must say it was a very pleasant stay. Rooms are clean and have been recently renovated. Staff was also very kind and welcoming. The food (we had half board) was also very tasty and the dinner was... More
