We have just finished 7 fabulous nights at la Sherpa. We had a family suite (double bed upstairs, 2 singles downstairs). The evening food was amazing each night and dessert table great - they even coped with our children asking for plain pasta! Jacuzzi steam room and sauna area great. The staff were mostly friendly. The bar area gorgeous and... More

We stayed here at the end of March/early April. The hotel was sold to us in the UK as a 4 star, but when we arrived the hotel promotes itself as a 3 star and this is more truthful. The room was larger than we were expecting, and with a balcony. Although the room itself was on the tired side,... More

WOW!!! Just went for a quick ski trip for a week to Vals Thorens in France. A friend recommended the "Le Sherpa" hotel and boy was I glad he did. This was a very homely family orientated hotel in a very high place. When you skied from the hotel you had to ski down about 1000 metres to get to... More

We were very satisfied with our stay in Hotel Le Sherpa and were surprised that such a charming place existed in Val Thorens. The staff were friendly and helpful and most spoke English. For a French Ski resort Hotel the bedroom had adequate space and had a safe for valuables. The ski locker room had good quality ski locker with... More

There are newer, more luxurious and extravagant hotels in Val Thorens. However, creating the kind of atmosphere that exists at Le Sherpa cannot be bought from a stylist, architect or trendy furniture store. The refurbished bar, lounge and reception areas do, however look fantastic and show that the Sherpa is always looking for ways of pleasing its customers. The bar... More

Recently stayed at Le Sherpa Hotel, Val Thorens. Generally speaking, not a bad place to stay - a comfortable, homely sort of place with adequate facilities and reasonable sized rooms (at least ours was). Well located with ski in and (sort of) ski out: to ski out it's about a 200m walk to the top of the hill first -... More

We recently spent a week in the Le Sherpa as a group of 8 on a father and son trip (10 yo kids and 3 dads). We booked through Crystal, who rated it as '4 star' and one of its 'Finest'. Pros: Good food on the half board deal and a cosy bar with good staff. Cons: It's not a... More

Our party of 4 stayed here during the last week of January 2014. We loved the hotel. Our rooms were nice, each with a balcony. The breakfast buffet was exceptional, lots of variety and even the hot choice including eggs were perfectly cooked. The evening meals were excellent, either 5 courses or a local speciality and the desert buffet was... More
