This property is in a good location for ski-ing and the staff were very friendly and helpful. However it was over priced for such a very small apartment that was very tired and in desperate need of renovation.

We two adults just spent a lovely week in a studio at La Licorne. We had a great welcome from Audrey at reception, who was helpful and friendly throughout the week. The building’s near the top of Belle Plagne. Skiing in is easy: take the ski path on the left at the BellePlagne signpost at the end of the Arpette and Tunnel blue runs. Then it’s just a few stairs and a short distance along a wooden walkway to reach the 5th floor of La Licorne. So is skiing out - take the same route up and out via 5th floor, or down via La Licorne’s reception: both routes take you onto blue pistes that run through Belle Plagne and past the Roche de Mio bubble mid-station. Given that it was the last week of March and sunny every day, the pisteurs managed to keep the runs in pretty good shape, even down to Bellecote where it got slushy by the end of each day. A few minutes’ walk below La Licorne were the smaller of the two Spar supermarkets, the ski shop Belle Plagne Sports II, the Deep Nature spa (fabulous - don’t miss it), and the K2 restaurant (recommended). And, although the walking routes through Belle Plagne’s network of stairs/lifts/walkways took a day or two to fathom, we weren’t far from all the restaurants, bars, and shops, including the unmissable patisserie. Our studio was on floor 3, with truly panoramic views and unforgettable sunsets from our balcony. It was type C for 2-4 people, and was a lot roomier than we expected. The bunks were fine (nicely cosy, with sheets + blankets amply warm), the bathroom was well fitted out with a powerful and well regulated shower, and the main room/kitchen was very liveable - well lit and furnished. There was an impressive range of storage - much more than we needed for just 2 of us - with cupboards and shelves neatly fitted into corners of the hallway, a vast high shelf for bags, and drawers under the bunks and sofa. There were wall hooks in hall and bathroom, and in each room there were plenty of power points. The kitchen was well enough kitted out, and having to check the inventory on day 1 was useful, rather than burdensome - it was handy to know what we had. The whole place was clean enough on arrival, and easy to keep tidy throughout the week. All in all, we loved La Licorne, thought it excellent value, and would definitely go again.

This hotel is in a great location in belle plagne, we were able to ski in and out of the hotel, the apartment we had was for 2-4 people and was equipped enough for us as there was only two of us. Would not recommend this size apartment for more than two as it wouldn’t be big enough. The apartment was clean and everything in good working order, the only thing wrong was the fact they do not have a boot room or lockers so ski equipment had to stay in the apartment and the beds were in a tiny alcove by the front door so could sometimes be noisy but on the whole was a great choice for the money and our main plan was to ski all day so it was perfect for us. The spar shop is a two minute walk away and restaurants and bars not much further and it has easy access for everything you need and the view was great from the balcony. would recommend and go back in the future

We are in our 50s and have been to Belle Plagne approx 10 times before so we know the area. Previously stayed at Les Constellations and Nereides. Firstly the Licorne is in a good location ski in ski out as are the other two. Belle Plagne great location for all types of skier in my opinion. This was the first time away as a couple without now grown up kids. We opted for a one bedroom apartment as I don’t like studio style living. It gets untidy with all the ski gear etc. Living area is practically the same as the other two we have stayed in. Bedroom was very small. Double bed against wall so be prepared for climbing over one another in the middle of the night. Also it has blankets not a duvet. The blankets were not clean in my opinion. I doubt the were ever washed. I kept checking my white sheet was covering me so I wasn’t touching them. Bathroom modern but the smallest bath we have been in. Hot water no problem. Reception is only open for a few hours a day but this didn’t really bother us. Now the main niggle....in the previous two apartments we had to make the beds and check inventory on arrival and strip beds and leave tidy on departure. I have no problem with this and seems par for the course in ski apartments. The problem is they actually inspect your room with you in it on leaving day. I presume they don’t bother if you have an early flight as they won’t be there to do it. We had a later flight. You must thoroughly clean the apartment as they do no cleaning at all. I presume if it’s not good enough theŷ will get a cleaner in as they do take a deposit for this which is returned if it’s good enough. Ours was very good so the deposit was returned. That means stripping bed and emptying rubbish ( as I would expect) but also cleaning thoroughly bathroom (bath, sink, mirror and glass side panel) and kitchen and mopping the whole floor. The mop in the apartment is filthy in my opinion and who actually takes cleaning products with them on holiday. Thankfully as I’m a bit fussy I do carry a small kitchen/bathroom cleaner so managed to do a good job for next person. I bought bleach for the toilet but the floor was only washed with water no disinfectant of anything. At 50 I know I leave a place clean but youngsters will just make it look clean without actually using any cleaning products. I also cleaned kitchen and bathroom when we arrived for this reason. All kitchen equipment has to be laid out on the dining table so they can check it’s all there. Equipment is good but there’s a lot of it. Most of which we didn’t use. The one thing they don’t have which wasn’t in the other two either is a plastic jug for the microwave. Perhaps the French don’t use them. I find it easier so take my own. So check out is a military style inspection. I really found this quite humiliating to be honest even though we left the apartment the cleanest it’s been in probably the season. Once the inspection is done you have to immediately leave the apartment. You book your inspection time so get in early for the 10am one otherwise you may be checking out at 8.30. Lastly Crystal were great. We didn’t want to meet up with them as we do our own thing but our rep Georgie sent me texts and always answered my texts within 10 minutes. I couldn’t have asked for more. Texting the reps is perfect for both sides. No more having to wait in the hotel lobby to find them or not knowing a question till the end of the day. Well done Georgie and Crystal. Would we go to the Licorne again. Probably yes if it was the only one available. We now know the system but in all honesty would prefer one of the others ahead of it. They are slightly roomier and don’t have the humiliating inspection at the end.

We booked via Crystal and I did plenty of research first. The rooms are small if you use full occupancy. We had three in a one bedroom apartment for up to 5 people. With one sleeping in the lounge it was perfect. The room was clean and I would advise bringing lots of bits, including; towels, tea towel, toilet paper, condiments, pasta, rice, cereal etc. if you have room. It is expensive to buy there and will cut costs. Check in was easy, and you are required to confirm an inventory and then leave the apartment, clean as you found it, with kitchenware laid out on the table to be counted. To be honest it was simple, and there were plenty of cups, plates etc. for the three of us. There was only a hob and a microwave, but we coped. The internet was great on our own UK phone data, and we hot spotted to our iPads. We could ski within a few metres of the entrance then had a shallow slope to walk up and could plonk our skis on the balcony. The view from our room was lovely, over the mountains, and the apartment was a one minute walk to the Spar shop, for groceries, and about a three minute walk to the centre, where there is a bigger Spar shop and lots of restaurants, gift shops etc. The centre was lovely at night, and had character. Ideally located for the whole of La Plagne, I will definitely go to this resort again and recommend La Licorn, as long as there aren’t lots of people in one apartment and you want a cheaper skiing experience. The lady on reception was very helpful too.

The apartment we stayed in was clean enough and reasonably well equipped for what is self-catering accommodation, plus we overlooked the mountain - although I think some apartments might be blocked by other buildings. We had already read that don't provide towels without cost, so we packed our own. Sheets were included, but if you are more than a party of 2 you might be required to hire more. There are blankets provided. Yes as another reviewer commented there is no dish rack/draining board nor a tea towel, but to be honest we have found what is provided varies across ski resorts more on the budget end. For example we had all the equipment to cook a meal, whereas other places have lacked sharp knives or chopping boards. We'd suggest if you are not hiring towels bringing your own plus a bath mat - which we forgot, but an old t-shirt was more than functional. Another useful tip is that there is pay-for wifi available. It is pretty stable, although we had the router outside our room, but we were able to download and stream movies OK. TV is pay-for too, but we just took a pack of cards and books to entertain us as well. We found the staff friendly, they even indulged our poor attempts to awaken our GCSE french! Location-wise this is a well placed with access to both sides of Belle Plage's pistes. We visited several of the other resorts in the La Plagne region and I would say Belle Plagne is more like a village ( a purpose built once for sure) than some of the other reports which felt like large apartment blocks with shopping malls. That made for a nice evening vibe when sitting enjoying a nice pizza and local beer.

Had a nice, week-long stay in an apartment for 4 (only two of us; would have been a massive squeeze for any more) Great position in the resort - close to shops and town but still very quiet. Can ski in and out of accommodation. Near ski hire place However, absolutely no essentials were provided: - no toilet roll - no soap/washing up liquid - no dish cloth - no towels (are available at extra cost) - no linen (is available at extra cost) - no draining board - no cutlery drawer/place to put any of the provided kitchen equipment - no basic foods (such as oil etc) If we had been told this before would have been more than happy to bring our own, but as it was we arrived, needed the toilet and had to dash to the shops and pay the resort prices for basics we could have easily have brought with us! Made it difficult to self-cater Also, we lost a key - there was a €40 charge for replacement!!! Extortionate! Lastly, ask for a west or south facing balcony as the sunsets were beautiful

We arrived with fairly low expectations of the accommodation having read the reviews and also stayed in similar accommodation in other French Ski Resorts. The walk from the coach drop point to the hotel isn't the most inspiring as we had to drag our luggage for around a 10 minute uphill hike through an underground car park (the reason for this is because the apartments are situated on the piste, so this was a worthwhile sacrifice). The check in experience wasn't great, as the reception is very small and quickly becomes over crowded with more than half a dozen people queuing. There was only one member of staff really doing any of the check in process, so it took a while. Be prepared to hand over a credit or debit card to cover a potential 300 Euro deposit, but it is only a precaution and they don't actually take any money or block the funds. For this reason, I wouldn't recommend handing over cash, as if you have an early morning check out, as we did, this would prove tricky to recover as the reception is only open for a couple of hours a day (if at all on some days). There were 3 of us in our party, and we had an apartment that was C rated so could sleep 1-5 people (but it would be seriously cramped if there were 5 of us). If you get a chance, opt for this size apartment as it offers a separate bedroom with a double bed and 2 single sofa beds in the lounge (with a pull out mattress for guest 5 in the lounge if required). There is a good sized dining table and the kitchenette is well stocked with crockery, pots and pans and utensils and has a halogen hob, microwave, fridge with ice box and even a dishwasher. All apartments have a balcony that faces the down the mountain with stunning views of the Alps and Pistes. The room was warm and clean. The bathroom was functional with a bath and a mixer tap with hand held shower head, which was the only negative. There is also a separate WC and ample wardrobe and storage space. There is no ski lockers available so most people leave the skis on their balcony although there was plenty of room in our hallway to leave the skis and boots. The location of the slopes is literally meters from a ski shop, spar shop, and restaurant and an elevator or few flights of stairs from the main resort area. Belle Plagne isn't the most expansive Apres Ski town, but has 3 decent bars that we visited and several restaurants/bars and pizzerias. In a morning, you walk outside, clip on your skis and your in the slopes... you will struggle to find a better ski in/ski out location. The negatives are that there are no towels provided, although these can be rented for a charge. The beds are not made up, but fresh linen is provided. You are expected to thoroughly clean the apartment before departing, which wasn't a huge chore as we had kept it tidy throughout and a hoover is provided along with mop, bucket and brush etc. On the whole, this was a fairly basic apartment in terms of modern decor, but has fantastic views, is truly ski in/ski out. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again on a budget basis.

Having visited Belle Plagne last year we were excited to return this year. Yes there is a long trudge uphill in the underground car park to the reception but that is the price you pay for no cars above ground and pretty much ski in ski out to all accommodation. However the long walk is the least of your worries if you stay in this accommodation. There is no warm welcome, I waited for well over an hour to check in and have the first encounter with the very unhelpful receptionist who tried her best to ruin our holiday from day one. Please note that this hostel does not take debit cards for a deposit so the only choice we had was to leave cash, why worry you say well when I asked how I get the deposit back as I would be leaving early on the Saturday morning (before reception opened) she told me I would have to get it back via Crystal who I had booked through. She would absolutely not move on this and would not agree to review the apartment on Friday evening to return my 300 euros. She just kept continually shrugging her shoulders and saying that is how it is!! Thank god for the fantastic service from Holly the Crystal Rep. I did have to put down the 300 euros (which the receptionist would not give me a receipt for) and this left us short of cash for the week but Crystal came inspected the room at an agreed time on Friday and returned my deposit to me. Make sure you check the room carefully, be prepared to count every knife, fork, spoon, plate even pegs!! You may think you are getting a bargain but the cleanliness of the rooms is appalling and you have to clean at the end of your stay. You get handed sheets at the beginning of your stay and have to remove these and return to reception. There are blankets in the rooms but I suspect that these do not get cleaned all season. I will be writing a letter of complaint to Odalys about my awful stay but take my advice and stay elsewhere.

Booked this through Cyrstal, being half term it wasn't cheap by any means and arriving at 3.30am after the worst flight of my life meant I wasn't exactly looking at this place through rose coloured spectacles. Cramped, scruffy, no towels, beds not made up, nowhere for skis or boots. In the cold light of day and thankful to be alive after that flight it wasn't quite so bad, and after a week less so, but still very shabby, lots of mould in the bathroom, damp damage round the window in our bedroom. Interesting comment elsewhere that they were recommended not to put skis on the balcony, we were told that was exactly where we should put the, there isn't anywhere else. We were informed by one of the many notices around the building not to put our ski boots on in the apartment either, not a lot of choice really given that the corridor outside was open to the elements and not exactly spacious. Crystal's website does not make it very clear that there would be no towels, nor does it give you the option to rent them. Surely carting towels all the way to France isn't very environmentally acceptable so they should be included in the price. Or if this isn't possible then Crystal's website / brochure needs to make it much clearer that this is the case. Belle Plagne is described by Crystal as a "pretty village".....don't know which villages the author of that nonsense has been to! Lots of confusing stairs and underground carparks to negotiate, although once one had the hang of it it wasn't bad, though try and avoid renting your skis from anywhere that isn't close by - there is a Skiset shop within 100 metres. Lots of nice / good restaurants in easy walking distance though best to book well ahead especially if half term as they get busy and we had a number of issues with booking errors.
