Returned today from Arc en Ciel after a lovely 4 day break, excellent location for those who ski, perfect walk to the nearest village with a free bus there and back, good honest food service with a smile at this family run hotel

We have just stayed at Arc en ciel over Easter and had a great trip. To us it was a typical French hotel with a lot of French guests and a few English.The hotel was nice and clean, the food was really good and if you made an effort with the staff then they were very friendly. We would certinately... More

Arc en Ciel boasts 'simple' rooms, and this is true, but they have everything you need, and are very clean, cosy and relaxing. Gorgeous views, ample facilities, friendly staff, gorgeous food and ideally situated for easy access up to the slopes. Only disappointment was that it said half board would include a 4 course meal when infact it was only... More

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and our group had a great time. Good value for money- 350 quid for two people half board for 3 nights is not bad in a ski resort. The management team were helpful and friendly and we were happy with the food on offer. The rooms are clean and secure but they are... More

Stayed at the hotel in early January with a group of friends. We stayed at slightly larger room from our friends, which was clean and tidy. Bed was big and comfortable. Our friends were not as pleased with smaller rooms that had smaller beds and little room to move around. Hotel is located a good 30minutes walk from Chatel centre,... More

We were shocked as to how bad this restaurant was and can only echo the other reviews regarding the unbelievably rude waiter. 30 minutes after having ordered we had still not received any drinks or starters so we politely asked the young man if he could chase up our order as our waitress had disappeared - it was as if...

Quaint it looks, but utter disappointment on so many levels. We booked a luxury room for 2 and whilst checking in realised there was no room available and hence we were ushered to a standard broom cupboard without any explanation. C'est Le Vie, we planned on skiing hard so figured we would be tired anyway. However this management style extended... More

Think carefully before booking this hotel before your next skiing holiday; booking.com score is well over-inflated compared to the true experience you will have. I could write a book about what is wrong with this hotel but I'll keep it simple: -at least a 20 min wall to the town downhill with the joy of walking back in the freezing... More
