“What a find!”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

Had five fabulous days at Le Kern visiting our children who are doing a ski season. Excellent position, clean, comfy room and great breakfast. Pascale could not have been kinder and suggested some excellent restaurants. Will definitely be returning.

We have been staying at Le Kern every year for the past 5 years at this time of year - it's a great destination for some pre-xmas skiing - this is the perfect place to stay for a ski weekend - Pascale the owner is lovely and really looks after you - it is beginning to feel like our second home in France now we have stayed so often. The hotel is situated right in the centre - really close to the pistes/bars/restaurants which is just what you want. The hotel is really cosy and the rooms nice, clean and tidy. We have stayed in other big hotels in Val D'Isere but we keep coming back to this one as it is so perfectly located and so reasonably priced. Can't wait for the next ski trip back to Val D'Isere - Thanks to all at Le Kern for a great stay - hope to see you next year (unless baby number 2 is on the way!!!)

We had an excellent stay at Le Kern, located right in the heart of Val d'Isere. We have stayed here before, and LOVE the breakfast - it is fantastic. The hotel manager Pascale is excellent - she is very nice, knows the best places to eat, and is always a pleasure to see and chat to after a day on the slopes. Can't fault this place. Don't miss it.

We stayed over Easter, the hotel is centrally located with easy access to the slopes, staff were excellent, two minor gripes: the radiator in our room was not up to it so a plug in electric one was supplied, the breakfast was the same each morning and could have done with some variation - apart from this we would go back and would encourage you to stay.

We are stayed in the hotel for 5 days. It is exactly what we expected based on the very good reviews here.
Room- number 8, small, as expected but exactly what we need. Very clean, nice bathroom, comfortable bed.
Breakfast was very good.
Pascale and Dany were there all the time and made us feel at home.

If you look for or need luxury, don't go there!

I would defiantly go back.

I was lucky enough to spend 4 nights at Hotel Le Kern at the end of March 2013. The hotel is primely located, easy walk to both ends of town for all the bars/restaurants and it connects to a short driveway leading up into the lift area for Val d. My friend and I had a 2 bd room with our own bathroom and it worked very well. Room was clean, and kept clean. The staff was helpful with recommendations and an afternoon coffee. Breakfast was buffet style, and included pastries, fresh coffee, hard boiled eggs, sliced meats, fruit, cereal and yogurt; basically perfect fuel for a long day out and about.

I'm happy to have found Le Kern and look forward to staying there as soon as I can get back to the wonders of Val d'Isere.

It is a family style Hotel. I stayed there 2-9 March 2013 with my husband. The hotel is centrally located close to the ski pistes, ski rentals (just opposite the hotel with special discount at Le kern clients), bars and restaurants. The hotel is very cute, very clean, very nice breakfast with high quality delicatessen, fresh variety of bread and croissants. etc. The best mattress I ever slept! The lounge is very warm furnished with antique furniture and has WI FI. The staff is very polite. Pascale at the reception is amazing and the Portuguese lady serving the breakfast is very friendly and willing. You feel like home! I highly recommend this hotel to those that like small, family style and cute hotels.

Room Tip: I stayed on the 3rd floor, in a small, cute room with mountain vew from the window. It was my choice...
