“Great holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The Brown Bear Lodge was a great place for us to have our 'mums and daughters' ski-ing trip. The staff were fantastic, looking after us from pick up to drop off - even making sure we knew where we were going on the slopes as well as in the evenings afterwards. I couldn't recommend them more. Thank you Reach4theAlps team. Fantastic break!

Room Tip: All rooms are great - en suite bueatifully presented!!

Great short trip to Morzine skiing. Stayed at BBL and it was excellent. Definitely would recommend it to friends and family. Location is really handy for all skiing areas and it was great as you could just text Ian when you needed a lift home and he would come and get you!

Hot Tub very useful after skiing and my son liked the table tennis table downstairs.

Food was very nice, my son who is 14 may not agree with me on that one but he is a bit of a fussy eater and it was far too gourmet for him.

The week at the Brown Bear has been fantastic. To complement the perfect snow and sun for the week, Rhiannon, Windsor and Ian were the perfect hosts, providing gourmet food and a very comfortable environment all week. The place was kept spotless and all special requests were dealt with very efficiently. We couldn't fault the place, the hosts and to top it all, the other guests were lovely and great fun too. We would love to go back. Well done to the team from Reach4theAlps!

Room Tip: Room 1 was fabulous

There are places where you feel at home right away. Brown Bear Lodge is one of them ! The Reach for the Alps team created here a warm and cosy environnement where all members of the family find their place: Hot tub for the Kids, sauna for the adults, playground in the basement, cosy frieplace. The hosting team was amazing: kindness and great food were constant during the whole trip.
Looking forward for next year.

Lovely chalet in quiet location. Access to slopes made so so easy by the hosts who got all 15 of us to lessons, ski hire shops and slopes on time. Brilliant advice, directions and tips on where to ski for those of us new to the area.
Great food, great hosts and a wonderful hot tub to end the day in.
30 minutes walk to Morzine on a straight easy road (where local buses stop by too if you prefer a lift) for shops bars and cafes but the food and sofas around the open fire in the chalet can prove too good to leave.
PS has free wifi too!

Stayed for a quick impromptu 3 night trip. Having been to the area several times before we opted for the trip with reach for the alps due to a pals previous experiences of the firm.

I have NEVER written a trip advisor review but felt compelled to share just how nice this accommodation is and more importantly just how service focused the team were.

Rhiannon, Windsor & Ian were the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for them and the cleanliness and quality of ALL services were second to none.

Transport, hospitality and the food were all absolutely first class. Thank you so much guys, we really did enjoy our stay and hope to revisit again next year without question.
