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

This February, we had our third year in a row we stayed both in Brides Les Bains and the Athena. What you see is what you get in both. The hotel staff are always very welcoming, good size rooms, extremely high standards of cleanliness with all the essentials covered. This might not be a 5 star palace, but it provides... More

Stayed here 3 years ago for 4 nights for a mini ski break with my son. Recalled it being good value and therefore had no hesitation in booking for a similar break with my wife and daughter in January. We had booked a triple room for 3 adults were ushered in to a twin room with fold away armchair bed... More

Stayed between Xmas and New Year. We arrived late and the staff had kindly prepared us some cold meats and cheese. The rooms are great - the decor is nothing spectacular - but good flat screen, good shower and nice balcony. The hotel has recently upgraded its apres ski - facility and boasts fantastic brand new sauna , steam room... More

Stayed in Athena for 11 days during Christmas and new year 2013-14. This is a great place to stay when you go skiing. The staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and the food is excellent. Rooms are not very big but as you spend all day skiing it is more than enough. Taking half board there is... More

Rooms were basic but clean and the service was great. Clare is a marvel. We had a child who was sick and they were extremely helpful. The daily trip to 3 valleys was easy, in house meals were fine and breakfast was more than sufficient.

We stayed in Athena in March for skiing, 3 friends. We stayed in a priviledge room for 3 people (mezzanine), the rooms was great, recently updated, very big! The best triple we could get i believe for the money. I believe it was great value for money. It is close to the main lift (even by walk) but we used... More

Thank you for staying with us and sharing your experience. It's a shame we didn't propose you our ski partner as we are working with the skiloc shop and they offers 30% discount to our guests. We do have ski lockers at the hotel, but only a few and it's working on the 1st arrived, 1st served basis. Our breakfast... More
