The staff are really friendly and helpful, knowing some French will help speed up any queries you have although they can all speak some English. Room was basic but the bed was comfortable and the shower in the ensuite was great! Breakfast was served from 8am - 9am. I don't really eat breakfast but there was a good selection of...

Stayed for snowboarding holiday with a mate. What the hotel lacks in 5* quality it makes up for with fabulous staff and great food. The staff, and the chef were just great (even made us fab packed lunches for when we were on the mountain), very helpful, very friendly. Accommodation is basic, but comfortable, warm and clean. Highly recommend for...

The hotel was a great base for our family skiing holiday - 100m from ski lift, heated ski locker, great home cooked-food (and plenty of it) and comfortable rooms. There is a small games room for the youngsters with billiards and table football. Vercland is quiet but La Reposette is a fantastic bar (just by the lift) if you want...

This hotel is at the foot of a Gondola ski lift which goes up to the top of the mountain - it has a ski boot locker and it's well worth using that rather than hiring one at the top of the mountain - mainly as you can a) ski down if there's enough snow - we managed this on...

Nice cosy little hotel located on the way up to the highest Samoens chairlifts. We were warmly welcomed, rooms were pretty and clean, breakfast was surprisingly good and hearty (perfect before going skiing), decent prices despite high season. Overall very enjoyable indeed!

We were the first Crystal Ski customers to stay here and were the only English people in the hotel. We were made very welcome. The hotel compares favourably with most catered chalets we've stayed in. The food is very French, which we liked, and there were none of the mean portions you sometimes see in catered chalets. It's a fixed...

Wow what a fab hotel! We had arrived in Samoens on foot having hiked 4 days from Thonon les Bains on the GR5 and we decided to take a day off the trail and have a rest day. We stumbled into the Tourist Information Office in Samoens and they made the booking for us at Boule de Neige. The family...

This stay was the price to pay for a same-day reservation: muddy parking lot, flaking walls in the corridors, dirty room, dirty bed sheets, pubic hair all over the bathroom, and the kitchen extractor vent right in front of our window. I visited the other rooms and they all looked the same: dirty. The whole place is creepy and I...

We've just stayed here for a long weekend of skiing. The staff were very helpful and friendly and everything went very well. We ate breakfast in the hotel, which was simple and adequate. We ate one evening meal which was excellent - the cheese board is highly recommended! The hotel is about 100m from the Vercland/Saix lift which goes to...

Visited for a weeks skiing in half term on a half-board basis. Good location near the gondola, but not a lot to do locally unless you drive into Samons itself (5/10 mims away). Pretty little hotel. The rooms good. resonable well designed, but rather dated - clean. Food good (albeit simple french household food). Good value and reasonable priced wine...
