Apparently management have changed recently.... I was left unimpressed.

Main issue was the meagre breakfast... bread is rationed at the Chamois d'Or and sliced into crouton-sized morsels. If you'd like some more you'd better ask several times and wait until the lifts close in the evening. Then when asking doesn't work (and SEVERAL did, SEVERAL times), the only way there was any change was when someone rang head office. Ditto coffee and the dried up cornflakes. God forbid if you want fruit. They don't do it here.

Managerial response was childish and confrontational.

Some of the junior staff were good and trying hard but were undermined by their seniors.

Well where do I start.... Having recently returned from our holiday in the Chamois d'Or, I that I must congratulate Ski-Val on the truly excellent team that work in the hotel. Having read earlier reviews I was a little worried about the hotel but the staff, food and general atmosphere definitely make up for any shortfalls in the building. Being able to talk to intelligent staff that are not normal seasonal workers makes such a difference and really added to our stay. SKi-Val have found the right formula in this hotel with the right location, the laid back feel and the right price. Congratulations to Ben, Dave and the team for making our ski holiday worth every penny that we paid for it. THANK YOU!!

I stayed here with as part of a group of 8 people in late March 2011.

The good bits: The hotel is located at the base the the Face run, so great in the morning - just walk to the back of the hotel and pop your skis on, and you're off. To return to the hotel you had to either ski the Face, or you could ski to the other side of the river and walk across, about 300 metres from the hotel. We also did a day's guiding with Ben, which was fun and fast. He took us to a good value lunch stop that we returned to later in the week.

So location was good, about a 15 minute walk (you could do it quicker) along the roads to the centre of Val d'Isere.

The food in the hotel was good, better than expected. The wine was plentiful, and not too bad for chalet hotel wine.

The bad bits: God, the hotel is in a dire state. The carpets are ripped, there is paint and plaster falling off the walls, The baths are stained and mouldy (and really narrow - I'm not fat by any stretch of the imagination, but the bath was cramped). We had hot water 3 days out of 6, lukewarm on the other days.

The furniture in the room is odd, the wood panelling was coming off the ceiling and the walls. Ironically, the heating was on full blast all day and night, to the extent that we kept the bedroom window open all week. If they turned the heating down, they would surely save money quickly enough to do a little tarting up of the building.

My overall advice - don't go here. For a little more money (£50-£100), you can stay somewhere far nicer.

Following my return from the Chamois D'or in Val I felt compelled to share my opinions about the hotel. Celebrating our anniversary, my partner and I had the most wonderful time at the Chamois D'Or. Although the hotel is in dire need of refurbishment, the staff, food, location and atmosphere more than make up for it. Lindsey, John and Polly deserve a special mention for the effort they went to make our stay enjoyable, employing a 'nothing is to much trouble'attitude. The food was excellent ranging from duck to delicious malaysian curry and the cakes were always something to look forward to after a hard days skiing. The location in terms of skiing is unparalleled however, it must be noted that you need to be a competent skier to ski the run back to the Chamois D'Or. All in all thanks to Ben and his team for a fabulous week and my partner and I would not think twice when booking for next year or when recommending it to others!

The chalet is quite shabby. It was a disappointment when we found that the big fire place wasn't operational as that was one of the main reasons we chose it. The food is fine but don't expect it to be amazing. It's more like a pleasant filler than delicious food. If you want a foodie place you'll be disappointed but if you want somewhere where the food is nice, then it's fine. The staff really make it though. Without exception no task was too big or small for any of them.

Yes, the building is tired but the SkiVal website tells you that. As long as you don't want 5* the tired building is more than made up for by the fantastic staff, all of them, led by Ben and Louisa. Right on the edge of town and adjacent to the slopes and main gondola, the location couldn't be better. The food was very edible and the evening dinner in particular very good apart from the wine. My group of eight 5* guys all thoroughly enjoyed it.
