“Great find in the centre of town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

We had a great week at Hotel le Kern in March. The hotel is in a great location in the centre of town just a few steps from the slopes (with a big ski room). The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and it is like staying with a family. The breakfast is really great and available until late morning in case you feel like a late start. The rooms are spotless and there is a nice living room area to relax after a day of skiing. We had a double room, the second room was a bit small if you were to have two people in there. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

stayed for 4 nights on a lads weekend. Superb location for the slopes and local bars ( the hotel will provide some apres ski drinks until 8pm ) . The rooms are warm and cozy and small but for most ski holidays you spend very little time in them. Constant hot water, good ski boot room. Great value for money

We had a great stay in Le Kern. Location to the slopes is fantastic- less than 5min walk. The breakfasts were lovely, rooms spotless and Pascal was a delight. It is very typically french and for 2* a real treat!

Room Tip: We had room 2 and it was the only room the downstairs WIFI reached

If you are looking for a comfortable hotel, with a warm welcome and truly excellent location for both the pistes and the apres this is the hotel for you.

Pascal was very welcoming and for its 2 stars you get a lot with this hotel. The rooms are very comfy with good hot showers. The rooms are quite small but ours had great storage and we weren't spending any time in the room anyway. The rooms are basic but clean and warm.

The location is just off the main street so was a 3-4 minute walk to the main lifts (Olympic and Solaise) and 30 seconds to numerous bars and restaurants. We were not kept awake by noise even though we went to bed pretty early for Val standards!

The hotel has its own boot room to leave ski's which is great.

Next time we are in Val we will definitely return to the Hotel Le Kern. Thanks for helping make our holiday so good.

We stayed here with our family for 5 days at New Year. We had an excellent stay with friendly, and endearing service and all the staff could not have been more charming or helpful. Perfect location just off the main high street so easy to walk to restaurants in the evening, and only 2 minutes wallk to the pistes. Rooms were clean and cosy, and the breakfast room & sitting room were very attractive. For position, price and people it is a brilliant 2* for a family ski holiday.

My 2 friends and myself enjoyed our stay in Val d'Isere thoroughly. My first, but my friends stay here, and the staff remembered them and welcomed them back. Staff are so friendly, hotel was very clean, extremely convienent for everything, being in the centre of the village, but just 3-4 mins to the slopes, restaurants, bars, ski shops. Overall, a very enjoyable experience, and highly recommend!!! Will come back! Slán.

Hotel Le Kern is a real gem in one of Europe's best skiing villages. The hotel sits in the centre of the village surrounded by the best shops and restaurants, and only minutes from the ski lifts. The hotel has its own boot room to leave your skis at the end of the day and the level of service was excellent. My wife was unable to ski for part of the week and the hotel's lounge was extremely useful to sit, read and relax. The breakfast was lovely and sourced from the local area and the rooms, although a little small were clean and tidy. If you are looking for a small hotel with friendly staff you can't go wrong. Will certainly visit again.
