“Ski holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

We arrived at 6.30 in the morning, expecting to drop our bags off and wait until 5 for check in - three of us travelled to this hotel but only two of us had booked a room, my daughter was due to stay with friends. What a pleasant surprise we got when the gentleman on reception not only told us our room was ready but also offered my daughter a room to catch up on her sleep - free of charge - this chap is a real asset to the hotel!!
We found the location for skiing excellent, next to the bucket lift which takes you directly to the lifts and slopes - no walking with skis and boots for us. Location very central for meals out and close to local bars etc.
This hotel has obviously had problems but the owner Patricia has made her mark already. Beautiful new outside furniture and general touches here and there.

We had a fantastic time skiing in Alpe d’Huez and staying at Les Grandes Rousses was the key to the success of our trip!

The hotel has a personality and an inviting atmosphere, all credit to Patricia Grelot Collomb and her team who looked after us very well.

Our double room was spacious, comfortable, very well equipped and had a breath-taking view over the mountains. We slept very well.

The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of the resort at the foot of the slopes. Everything is accessible by foot.

The buffets were varied, satisfying and delightful. We loved the ‘Wine Cheese and Chocolate and Music’ formula as well as the Lounge Bar and its jazzy atmosphere for our early evening drinks. We also enjoyed relaxing in the Spa and the swimming pool after skiing.

The staff are friendly, enthusiastic, well-organized and always there when needed. They arranged our transfers and our ski rentals.

This is a fabulous hotel for people of all ages. The service is excellent and top notch.

We would certainly return.

The G.m.Alberto was foreverer of his mobile phone doing his best to look after the clients needs, i think the head receptionist was all smiles and jolly and even babysitted our children all day, i believe her name was virginme. A total gent was one of the cooks, a morrocan called Rasheed who went out of his way and socialized with the whole family, he even bought for the kids a game of twister and two bottles of oil for ourselves, how sweet. The chef, Thierry, was very err.. accomadating to our dietary needs, and assured us he could pull anything out the bag for us, which he did. It is truly a family business, steve the handyman was making sandwiches and unblocking our toilet and his daughter,Storm, was scrubbing it clean, Benoit, the restaurant manager was very polite and offered a private mini bar on the house, which was very generous of him, especially as we had the French cooks to entertain.
