Amazing holiday! Staff were young, friendly and made us feel so welcome. The assistant manager Amy was so helpful as was James Bar Manager and the rest of the staff. I lost my ski lift pass and the staff went so out of their way to help me sort it, thanks Viv x , Felt so relaxed and nice little...

The Gelinotte is like a hobbit hotel. It's full of character but is a little shabby in the bedrooms. I paid for a slightly bigger room and I'm glad I did as the 'regular' room was very small and felt claustrophobic. The bar and dining area were neat and the food was more than adequate. The swimming pool and sauna...

Lovely chalet, in an ok location (10 mins walk to centre) made useable by daily shuttle service to slopes which was very good. Without this service we wouldn't stay this far from the slopes. Main issue here is the absolutely shocking food. Basic is fine but it was barley edible at times, we ate out most nights which wasn't ideal...

We came as a large group of 15, which we booked through Alpine Elements. Reading other reviews of this "hotel", I agree with Bruggy55 and Victoria B regarding their comments on the food and if the property was either a hotel or a chalet. e.g. The hotel did not offer a change of bed sheets or towels, you had to...

The Hotel Gellinote is marketed as Premium 4 Diamond on the Alpine Elements website. This might be the case when compared to other Alpine Elements accommodation. I am actually not too sure what Premium 4 Diamond is meant to be, but whatever it is my expectations were dashed. This is no better than a 3 star hotel in the UK...

Our group of 14 has just returned from a fabulous 5 night stay at La Gelinotte. There have been some significant improvements since our visit 4 years ago with the lift, boot room, pool and sauna a wonderful addition. Food was tasty with plenty of choice for everyone. Rooms are traditional chalet style, well appointed with plenty of hot water!...
