Lovely hotel - excellent food and very comfortable rooms. We went in February for skiing, a nice walk through the town to the main cable car (with ski hire underneath and storage lockers to keep the skis in). Hotel fabulous to return to after a day on the slopes - spa and sauna luxurious. Food excellent, good variety. Parking very... More

3rd year staying at this lovely hotel. The stuff are lovely and were very accommodating towards our 15 month old daughter. The pine trees and sound of the river make for a deep nights sleep. Food is well prepared and very nutritious. Spa area is a treat too. See you next year.

The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the ski lifts, scenery was beautiful, our room was situated with the balcony facing the mountains and stream. There were very few shops around and not many were open. The female manager was very accommodating and helpful and would go out of her way to ensure the stay was pleasant. The rooms... More

Room was clean, service was ok. The hotel was fair at 3*, certainly not more. Decore was dated but relatively clean... The spa was good but tiny for the number of rooms and is only open a couple of hours a day, a problem if you go down and its full already! The food is ok, the half board is... More

Nice hotel for the price. Most of the staff tried very hard to please. Yet, went to go to dinner in their restaurant and asked for a seating for three. We could see there were tables for 2 and one for 5 and two tables pushed together for eight that were free with no one else waiting. But, they told... More

Dear Sir, Thank you for your custom at the hotel and your review. We are sorry that our restaurant service disappointed you. As you stay in between Christmas and New Year Eve, you'll understand it is a very busy period for us. When you arrived a restaurant, we didn't had any table free for 3 persons. Indeed, there was table... More

OK, so the selection of hotels in Brides-les-Bains isn't huge and most are focused on the winter ski market or the therapeutic benefits of "taking the waters", but Brides is not Bath. Still, the Alps are lovely in the summertime! This hotel is, IMHO, on a par with a good mid-range B&B in the UK. The rooms were clean and... More

Another warm welcome from the Hotel Athena staff for the 5th year running. Three nights in early January with family of five. Two great rooms, clean & warm. Went half board for the first time and weren't disappointed. Good choice with the chef providing an alternative choice for the kids on the one night they didn't fancy what was on... More

Normally a hotel of this standard would not rate 5 stars, but everybody at the hotel really cared. The receptionist was brilliant and went out of her way to make me welcome. The hotel has had a recent face lift, so the large rooms are pleasant and comfortable. Even note paper on the desk ~ a first for a 3... More

We were a bit dissappointed on arrival, as having booked a superior double room, we discovered that our room had two single beds. When we requested the bed be changed for a double, we were then told that the superior rooms do not actually come with double beds, however the single beds can be made up as a double if... More
