Stayed in the hotel for one week in March 2013. As remarked elsewhere excellent dinners - 4 course with some fabulous dishes and a great cheeseboard. Breakfast typically French - you are given croissant and piece of baguette and ham, cheese, jams to add on table along with cereal/yoghurt/fruit. Rooms OK. Wifi - constantly dropping/non-functioning - you had to pick time of day carefully - only functioned in public spaces when it did function.
Location up hill slightly out of town and thus very quiet - previously stayed at Le Soly and found that was better for location and even better for food - it was fully booked for the week I wanted. Bus down path from hotel was only half hourly but by ascending through someone's garden behind the hotel one could get up to the main road to the Les Prodains lift and very frequent (10 minute) bus service.
Hotel heavily used by UK tour operator - Crystal. The proprietor spoke OK English and was very welcoming - the fact that a lot of the staff did not is representative that you are out of the UK - if you worry about these things go to Scotland for your skiing or US or Canada.
Wine on the dear side but that is typical of France and their cheap cote du rhone (although bottled and not carafe was dreadful) - my own fault - the local wines were much better (another of my rules of France - always drink the wine of the region or, if it is Brittany/Normandy stick to the cider....).
Would I return - quite possibly, if I go skiing in Morzine again, as the dinner was so good - but my jury is out on skiing in the Portes de Soleil - the extent is amazing - the travelling is irritating with bus rides (Chatel/Morzine), walks across village (Morgins), some horrendous old lifts and climb up hill to gondola station in Chatel.
