We had the best stay in Le Refuge. It is almost as if the whole ski resort revolves around it. The bus to Espace Killy stops right at the doorsteps. Although ski lifts are also within walking distance, we couldn't take advantage of it as it has not snowed enough (the least snowfall in 20 years apparently) for us to... More

Stayed here in December, excellent position, unfortunately no snow, so still had to get ski bus ! Room had view of mountain, bed was firm, but I like that. Room a bit too hot, so turned heating off and open the balcony door on occasion. Breakfast good, plenty of variety, excellent eggs and coffee. Staff friendly and helpful, used the... More

This was our third summer trip to Tignes Le Lac staying at "Le Refuge" and each visit has been lovely, since our last visit in 2012 the hotel has undergone significant refurbishment which has improved what were already excellent facilities. The hotel is well appointed with very helpful staff and centrally located in Tigne Le Lac for restaurants, (some really... More

On our last night of a 5 night stay at hotel Le Refuge. We stayed in a superior room with balcony facing the main lift in Tignes Le Lac. The hotel had everything you need in a ski hotel. Very comfortable, quiet and convenient. Breakfasts were extensive with so many options. Fresh bread, fresh fruit, granola, 3 types of cereal,... More

This was the third time we spent a skiing holiday in Tignes and in hotel Le Refuge and it gets better every time. The location is superb, you just walk out and decide which lift to take. The athmosphire in the hotel is warm, you feel like coming home. The rooms (we always had one with balcony) facing to the... More

If you are thinking of going to Tignes and looking for somewhere to stay, look no further. This was my first trip and despite the length of transfer from Geneva the resort was the very best I have experienced in Europe from a purely skiing perspective. The hotel is literally 30 seconds from a ski lift which is amazing. I... More

This hotel was absolutely perfect for what we wanted for our stay in Tignes Le Lac. From my first contact with the hotel by email the staff was very responsive to my questions and needs. Capuchine (who is the owner/proprietor I think) was very energetic and was everywhere all the time (at the front desk assisting customers, up at the... More

The location of this hotel is excellent, right in the middle of Tignes Le Lac with close access to the ski lifts. The breakfasts were very good. Above all, "La patronne" is passionate about the hotel and ever ready to help.

Had a very enjoyable and comfortable three days here in August. Great location, overlooking lake and close to restaurants, main lift and shops. Free, and good-quality, wifi which worked well across the hotel. Excellent buffet breakfast up on the top floor and friendly and helpful owner & staff completed the positive experience here.
