We had a great time here. There is so much to do and not enough time.! Val D'isere is stunning in the summer! The hotel is quirky with great balcony views. The location is a short walk to the centre/ gondala etc. The food is home cooked and the afternoon tea and cakes were excellent (well done Luke..) Highlights are... More

My family and I stayed at the Hotel Gelinotte for a week with Alpine Elements. What an amazing experience, the location, the activities, the hotel and the staff were all utterly brilliant. The entire stay was one of the best holidays that I've ever been on and we'll definitely return.

Just come back from a full fun packed holiday with family. Activities are amazing, scenery fantastic and amazing staff that made it a "home from home" experience. Thinking of booking another holiday next year.

During our stay at La Gelinotte, the staff couldn't have been more helpful, always making sure the guests were made to feel welcome. Thank you! Most rooms had a small balcony area to overlook the mountains which was lovely. The activities on offer as part of the Alpine Elements package was fantastic and the bike mechanics were really helpful when... More

Stayed at this hotel as part of a adventure holiday with Alpine Elements with my 2 children (14 & 16). Booking details were straight forward & I was able to specify the individual room (2 rooms together in one apartment). What made the holiday was the quality of the activities (white water rafting, mountain bikes, parapenting, canyoning etc) and more... More

Overall, great experience. Apart from that one morning when all the staff slept in (lol) after a night of partying, everything went quite smoothly. The food served was ok, the packed lunches were a good value too. If they can improve the food then it'll get 5 stars. Would go with them again.

I stayed at Hotel La Gelinotte in April 2016 in a group of two couples. Overall, the accommodation, food and staff exceeded our expectations for a great skiing holiday. Accommodation: We stayed in room 1, which comprised two twin bedrooms, each with its own bath/shower room and one separate toilet. We also had a balcony that had nice views to... More

Returned to the Gelinotte again this year through Alpine Elements having enjoyed it in 2014. Staff are excellent and always helpful - although as always "customer service" comes more naturally to some than others! Food was mostly good - a couple of dinners were a bit strange and I suspect there might have been staffibg challenges in the kitchen. Perhaps... More

We visited this hotel over Christmas week and loved the resort, the staff and the gelinotte so much that we booked another week just before Easter. We took another friend this time who also loved it. We had a fantastic large triple room with two balconies both with breathtaking views (room 1c). I can't rate this hotel or the staff... More
