Offers Very good value and great comfort. Our apartment this time B3 was very spacious, clean on arrival (and on departure!!!) and offered everything we needed for a week's stay with teenagers.... Have recommended this to friends and family in the past and would definitely return again!

If you are travelling in a family group or want a more relaxed stay in the Chamonix valley you could do much worse than L'Ours Bleu. In fact it is possibly one of the most convenient apart-hotels you will find in these parts. With included parking beneath and a good restaurant and pool/spa on site, it is only 2/3 minutes... More

We were lucky and got upgraded from the studio to the 1 bedroom apartment. Apartment is very nicely done, with lots of wood. Good balcony to enjoy the afternoon sun, Note: apartment doesn't have a real oven, just a microwave with 'crisp' function. Swimming pool is nice, with a view on the mountains, water is just a bit on the... More

Went at Easter for a ski trip - 3 families all with children. We have previously stayed across the road at the Residence Spa Vallorcine. L'ours Bleu costs about the same - but it comes a poor second. The rooms - my one bedroom apartment was a decent size. The furnishings had clearly seen better days. The TV was only... More

Where praise is due it should be shared, especially when choosing accommodation for our precious time away, we all want to choose according to our requirements and have a positive experience rather than a miserable time. I hope this helps other travellers in making their decision, especially if travelling with family, children and pets, as this all attracts specific requirements.... More

We visited these apartments about four years ago and some things have changed (for the better), the restaurant now serves pizza and is much busier at lunchtime too! We booked the New Year's Eve meal this year, it had a good menu. As for reception, they have been great, we could check in early and get everything sorted, and then... More

Clean, modern apartments that are well equipped and the ski lift is right next door to the complex. Ski lockers could be a bit bigger! Free Wi-Fi available in the apartments. There is a pool but didn't use it so can't comment. Reception seem a little unhelpful and disinterested. Vallorcine is a great resort for families but for those seeking... More

Pros: Apartments furnished to a high standard. Kitchens are excellent. Flats are quiet. Accommodating if you are with children - you can book highchairs and cots n stuff. Free covered parking Close to lifts Cons: Could be friendlier - my friend asked about leaving bags and before she was finished was told NO, but on closer questioning they are quite... More

We stayed here, for the first time, for one week at the end of January 2013. The residence is not a hotel but it is hotel-style. We stayed in a two room appartment; with good sized bedroom with excellent en suite bath/shower plus the main room which had a kitchenette, dining area and lounge area. It was very well furnished...
