The rocketski deals are great! Risoul is a great resort with fantastic skiing and a big ski area. The hotel is clean and comfortable, most of the staff were great! The food was terrible - quite literally I dont think my dog would have eaten it some nights. The simple things like soup were tasteless - something a few stalk cubes could have changed? Burnt croissants for breakfast which the chef managed to underestimate numbers. Pretty horrid maincourses every night - the pizza shop next door was the usual spot after dinner. Overcooked vegetables, goatscheese salad without goats cheese? The staff were under pressure but friendly and helpful. The manager seemed to be quite bossy and rude to staff infront of guests which was totally inappropriate! The bar was reasonably priced and quiet - the off duty staff were at times the only people there to drink with but good fun all the same! And always willing to show guests Risoul's nightlife!
What could be an amazing budget hotel is a good budget hotel - maybe if the manager focused a bit less on the immaculate carpets and put the effort into eatable food this hotel would be perfect!
The location is great a stones throw from the lifts (literally)

Room Tip: Check out rocketski's last minute deals!

Clubhotel Le Morgan far exceeded my expectations for a budget hotel. From the minute I walked into the bar/reception it was warm, cosy and welcoming, and the reps and hotel staff were incredibly calm, friendly and helpful. One thing that was very impressive was that despite our coach being heavily delayed and arriving quite late in the evening, the staff still insisted on doing a ski-fit that evening. Also, dinner was pretty much ready for us, and the lift passes were sorted out for first thing the next morning. The rooms were basic (a hairdryer would have been nice, considering it was very cold outside!), but clean and spacious - all you really want for a weeks skiing.

The hotel quickly felt like home, and the bar area really felt like a place where you could just sit and chat to staff or strangers quite comfortably. The location is phenomenal - literally a 15 second walk from the bottom of the slopes, and with the ski locker right next to the hotel.

Although the bar could have been a bit better stocked, it was a nice place to spend the evening, thanks in part to the table football and pool table.

However, this wouldn't be a proper review if I didn't mention the downsides. I had read a few conflicting reviews regarding the food before I went away, and was interested to see what it was like. Although I am an incredibly unfussy eater, I am sorry to say the food was a huge disappointment. I wasn't expecting luxury, but I do know that it is not difficult to produce simple, tasty food on a tight budget. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't all bad. I finished all my courses most nights, and it was plenty filling - but there were some real shockers. A tomato and mozzarella salad made with non-fresh mozzarella and balsamic vinegar that stuck to the plate like tar; overcooked, stodgy rice, over-boiled and cold vegetables, lukewarm chicken. And worst of all, the vegetarian option on the last evening (sweet potato + goats cheese bake) looked repulsive, and was left untouched by everyone who ordered it. I also objected to the fact that 95% of the dishes were poor versions of British dishes. Surely people on holiday want a local twist? Especially in France! The eat-out night was much needed, and tempted some to not bother with the hotel food on future evenings. The breakfast however was exactly what you want. Croissants, bread, meat, cheese, fruit, porridge, cereal, muesli, juice, tea, coffee. Lovely.

Another slight drawback was a bit of noise during the night, coming from the adjacent Irish bar and discotheque. However, this didn't really seem to bother anyone. Getting back to sleep is never a problem on skiing holidays, and the week is all about fun anyhow. If you can't sleep then you're obviously not tired - so get out there and join in the fun!

All in all, this was the venue for a truly fantastic holiday. Risoul is brilliant and I will definitely be back. Just sort the food out, invest in a few hairdryers, and make tea and coffee a bit easier to get hold of in the mornings (surely self service would make more sense than someone coming round every 10 minutes with a pot that only seemed to serve 3 cups!), and this would be the perfect budget hotel.

You will have a great time here.

I went to stay at Hotel Le Morgan for a school trip this week. Got back today. Words cant describe how amazing this hotel was. We made friends with EVERY staff member there. They were so helpful, kind, and sociable, there was only one fallback of the whole hotel, which was the food. The food was edible, a bit flavourless, but it was not excactly what we'd wanted. But that's just my opinion. We ended up getting dinner before the school would group in the eating area, but maybe that's just us being picky. The teachers liked it though. The resort was amazing, a variety of easily accesible shops. There was lots of entertainment, everyone was very friendly, its a clean, big, nice hotel and I would gladly go back. RECOMMEND THIS!

After reading reviews on other sites was worried about transfer, yes it is long but due to the early start most of journey was spent sleeping, but the views are great. We stopped off so had a quick loo break and chance to stretch legs. On return journey we went straight.to the airport.
On arrival was late afternoon, rooms were ready and we were able to get skis and boards fitted. Photos taken and lift passes ready at next morning breakfast.
Meal times are breakfast 8-9, evening meal 730-830 pm.
Breakfast alternates between boiled eggs and porridge, I took my own weetabix and the staff were happy to heat them up.
Evening meal had option of two for starters and main course, one evening hubby and son did not like what was on menu and were offered childs choice. Just to say thank you for that extra thought.
The meals were of good quality and well presented. Meals are served with water on table but wine can be bought from 10 euros a bottle.
The hotel also offers bar menu at lunch time and due to its closeness to the slopes(80 steps to be precise) you can come back and have food at competive price, ( if you have chips they do not have vinager)
The rooms as said before basic, warm no hairdyers, no TV and only mirror in bathroom. There is a seperate loo to bathroom. lots of storage in bathroom but limited hanging space. Plenty of coat hangers. There was never a problem with hot water and towels are provided with small tablet of soap. One hint there only appears to be one plug socket but we found one behind a bed.The rooms are warm and kept warm with convertion heater rather than radiators so no hanging ski clothes on.
The slopes were great even with no snow for nearly three weeks. It was sunny every day but still very cold at times especially up top of mountain. I am not a great skier but found enough of crusing the blues, others in the party boarded and skied the reds and went over to Vars. The lift system consists of 8,6,4,3,2,man chair lifts several button lifts, on to the top which takes approx 6 minutes. I felt that there was a lift around each corner.
Prices in the resort seemed expensive but not having been to France had nothing to compare with. 3 euros for hot chocolate, 1.50 coffee tiny cup, coke 3, and a beer 4 for a half. We spent on average 30 euros a day for lnch and morning drinks for 3 people.
We were there with two school parties and had school children in room next door, we had no problems with the children (what lovelly young men), however the main problem was the people from the Irish bar and night club outside smoking and being loud, however did not not stop me from sleeping.
Overall this place is a hidden jem and can not wait to go back as a group, it offers something for all abilites, if you your not to hard core. There is also good snow parks for those who like to do kickers and jumps.
Can not wait to go back.

i was pleasantly suprised when we arrived at the hotel, the staff were very friendly and the ski technician school ran by simon is great if you maintain your own skis..
the rooms were basic but clean, the only criticism is that the irish bar was below our window and was quite noisy.
i had ear plugs but my friend didnt and kept getting woken up )
the school party were very pleasant but i agree there isnt much for them to do after the skiing, however we had no problem with them.
the skiing is superb , big wide pistes but beware being ripped off in vars st marie, do not stop for coffee here, extortionate prices,
the best mountain cafe is between the 2 big chairs, D"altitude, definitely recommend this cafe and the huskys are there too.
the transfer is long but the scenery is stunning, its worth the effort.
overall i loved this place but not much else to do apart from ski .

We were not expecting much and knew there would be a school party there at the same time. What a pleasent surprise. The school party were well organised and we rarely saw them. We were warned that they would be booting up at about 9.30 in the morning so we got our skis at 9.50 after they had gone.

The bar is small but the staff very friendly and welcoming. I was happy to drink there on my own while waiting for partner. Drinks were normal French prices.

The dining room was good, well set out, and the food better than expected with 2 options for the starter and main course. Breakfast was the normal continental with either porridge or eggs as an extra. The waiting staff were excellant.

The room was large with 2 bunk beds as well as our double. The bath was short but deep and quite comfortable with a shower. Plenty of hot water until 6.30 then had to wait about 10 minutes for it to get hot again. I suspect the school party all showered at once. The double bed was very comfortable although maybe a bit short, at 5'3" no problem. There was a bit of the normal noise in the road as people left the bars but no worse than any other resort.

It was a very short walk to the slopes, just across the road and through a short tunnel to the lifts. We set out at about 9.50 each day and there were no queues for the lifts. The runs were mainly blue and red, great for cruising.

We knew it would be a long transfer but after changing to the minubus in Serre Chevalier they arranged a loo stop for us. On the way back we were all asleep but I am sure they would have sorted something if requested.

I would certainly recommend both the hotel and the resort.
