This hotel is situated a little outside the main village and is peaceful and attractive. There are pleasant public seating areas in which to relax and a comfortable garden when the weather is good. My room had nice views, was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. The hotel has a sauna, a small bar and free internet. What really impressed me... More

A small group of us stay here every year to ski. Alke and his staff go a long way to making our stay enjoyable and easy. The rooms are simple Savoie style and clean. Breakfasts are great - evening meals more so. The hotel chef always rustles up a surprise for what is an excellent price. There's not much better... More

We were greeted by the chef as the owner Alke was out. Very welcoming and helpful. Ran us down to the village to collect our skis and explained how to arrange dinner etc. The twin room was clean and comfortable with great views but the walls were a little thin meaning that we were awake when next door were.

I never before wrote a review, but this place is so terrible, that I feel badly the urge this time. We stayed here with a group. The owner does'nt know anything about hospitality or hotelerie. Most of our groupmembers had a reasonable room, but ours was awful. We had no balcony, the bathroom had never been renovated since 1960. It... More

We had a very warm welcome and a full tour of the hotel. I guess it can be described as a budget hotel but the food was super and the staff friendly. Twin rooms are compact but clean and great views. Great spaces to relax in and staff very accommodating. The food is very 'master chef' which we enjoy but... More

Our 3 night stay in the mountains was made even more enjoyable thanks to Alke and his team. From the warm welcome on arrival, comfortable rooms to the fantastic food (their three course dinner with extras is a must). Would definatley recommend to fellow Brits and all.

This hotel was taken over by a young Dutch couple, Anneke and Alke, who have done a great job in bringing it back to life. The bedrooms have been tastefully refurbished with very comfortable bedding. There is a good sized dining room and lounge area. In the basement there is a large games room with a pool table. Anneke and... More

My partner and I stayed here for two nights during the Tour de France, to watch the stage finishing at Morzine. The owners, Alke & Anneke, were superb - very helpful with all our requests, and so friendly. The rooms are lovely, cosy duvets, wooden floors, and incredible views. The best part was probably the dinner - 3 courses for... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The hotel is a perfect base for winter sports enthusiasts. Whether you’re into skiing, snowboarding, hiking or cross country skiing in the world famous ski area Les Portes du Soleil. IN summer about 650 km of hiking trails await here for you. High peaks, lovely valleys and breathtaking meadows where the Abondance cows stroll with large bells around their necks. Everything is possible here. For the `less sportive´ guests, Esprit Montagne hotel is also a great place to stay. In the Vallée d'Abondance, "the Valley of Abundance", you can enjoy the French gastronomy, AOC cheeses and the pearls of the Alps: its wines. Ancient abbeys, churches and museums in the Valley reveal their secrets, and then the medieval castles and villages on Lake Geneva allow you a very different view of the surroundings. ... more   less
