The hotel is simply but very nice. The food not so good. Breakfast is bad, no fresh food, eggs are cold baked the day before. Could be better. Would be good to have menu for kids, thanks to Alexsandra that she did her best to serve other food to our kids.

Response from Athena-Manager, Directeur général at Hotel Athena
Responded Mar 13, 2019
Madam, Thank you for staying with us for the 2nd year in a row. We are sorry to learn that your stay wasn't perfect for you. However, we are surprised that you find our breakfast "bad". We have different sorts of fruit juice (100% juice), different sorts of breads and viennoiseries, differents sorts of cereals, different sorts of buiscits and cakes (and some of them are home-made), different sorts of teas, different sorts of yogurts, different sorts of cheese... and different sorts of eggs. Either, we have during the winter, some scrambled eggs that for health and safety reason, we buy from the food industry (nothing is cooked the day before), either we have some fresh free range eggs that you can cook yourself. I don't know how the food can be fresher ? As you said, we don't have a particular daily menu for kids, but we try (between our restaurant staff and the kitchen) to propose (fresh food) alternatives depending on the taste of the kids in order not to propose the "traditionnal" nuggets and fries... So if you fell unhappy about your stay with us, I would like to apologize about it and we hope that you will trust us again on next year for your stay in the 3 Vallées. Best regards

We stayed at the hotel Athena for 4 nights for my February holiday with my husband and daughter. The hotel room was clean and tidy. Our room had a balcony and was bright. The room we were in had twin beds pushed together, a separate room with bunk beds in it which my daughter slept in. A bathroom with separate toilet. There was a wardrobe with a safe. There is no hairdryer in the room but you can ask for one at the reception. We really enjoyed our stay here. Staff were friendly and Alexandra the waitress who served us for our evening meal was a credit to your hotel. She was funny, helpful and my daughter loved her! The food was lovely. However, it would have been nice to have had another option as it was a set menu every night with no choice. My daughter didn’t enjoy some of the meals but she was offered a burger and chips but it seemed to be the only other option for every night. Therefore if you have a fussy eater it might be a challenge if you stayed longer than a few days. The breakfast was a buffet which had lovely croissants, Bread, cereal, yoghurts, fruit, pancakes, eggs, sausages, coffee, tea, orange, apple juice, etc. The hotel could do with upgrading wth regard to decor. However, it would not stop me staying here. Before dinner we sat at the chairs beside reception. What the hotel lacks is somewhere to sit before dinner to have a drink as there was a few nights were the hotel was busy and there was no seats left. We ended up sitting in the dining room. The older lady at reception was lovely and the man who checked us in was also really nice. I really can’t fault the staff. If you are skiing there is a bus which picks you up at the top of the hill from the hotel and comes regularly each morning. It drops you right at the bottom of the ski lift. The lift took I would say about 25/ 30 minutes to get to the top. You then need to get another lift to ski. This resort is amazing if you have kids that are beginners or any adult learning to ski. We took our 7 year old up to the top of various lifts, right at the top of the mountain and there was enough green/blue runs for her to get down from the top to bottom. On the way back to Brides Les Bains we always got the bus back to hotel but had to take a short walk from Ski lift to main road to get picked up. The bus was free. When we got back to the hotel there was a hot tub, sauna and steam room in the basement. This was fantastic to help the legs after a days skiing. The hot tub was great apart from there wasn’t many bubbles. The sauna was fab but very small, you could only fit two, maximum three people in it at one time. We went to the spa every night before dinner and was a nice facility to have. Be warned Europeans like to be naked in the sauna which my husband experienced. Brides les Bains was a lovely wee town and I would recommend Hotel Athena.

We stayed at the hotel for a long weekend for our first time skiing and really enjoyed it. The staff are all very friendly, the rooms are spacious and warm. Its close to all the local amenities and the Gondola upto Meribel. We would definitely stay again for our next trip.

We booked a family room for one night the room was very clean and warm. On arrival the staff at the hotel were very helpful and attentive, they gave us clear walking instructions into the town as we wanted to eat out. The hotel is perfectly situated if you want a well priced ski holiday without any frills.

As always my favorite place to stay during my ski trip to 3 Valley. A lovely place by the stream. The meals are good and the location is good, too. Its only a slight walk to the main telecabin. They offer ski services, too.
