“Perfect functional chalet in an iconic resort.”
Reviewed March 27, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

I was surprised at how large the skiing area in Alpe d'Huez is and this chalet has all you would need to enjoy the restore. It's a short walk from the main town, has a sauna, hot tub and the views across the valley are stunning. The hosts are welcoming, friendly, have a vast knowledge of the area and will go out of their way to accommodate. I will definitely be visiting again.

“Good in many ways but disappointing food and location is a bit out of the way.”
Reviewed March 19, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Good amenities in terms of sauna and hot tub (the latter has fantastic views). Living room is spacious. There is a good sized boot room and ski storage area but note that boots are not individually heated (they are just on metal poles). Living room is spacious with good tv (Sky Sport, BBC etc.) and there is a separate snug room as mentioned by other reviewers. Most bedrooms are what you're expect in Savoyard style chalet (basic but clean and decent enough en-suite facilities) but note one bedroom is in the rafters and has no direct light of its own.

As commented by others you are reliant on buses or shanks pony to get around. Buses are pretty reliable but not frequent. It takes about 15 mins to walk to the main tourist office in normal shoes. Would not recommend the walk in ski boots. If snow is ok on Villages run you can ski pretty close to the chalet on the return run.

Most disappointing aspect was the food. Very basic, felt cheap and with a strong emphasis on how convenient or easy it is for the hosts to produce. Plus it just wasn't that good. It is filling and there is enough of it but that's all. The advertised beef bourginion is actually actually a very simple beef stew: not a beef bourginion. Thai curry is not what most people would recognise as a Thai curry. Suspect the soup is bought and not freshly made.

Afternoon tea was a bit of a joke. Very doubtful that it's home produced as it looked and tasted very much like it had been bought as a job lot from the cheap end of the local supermarket (the box of flapjacks or biscuits in Sainsbury's for £2 sort of thing) You do not get a fresh cake: just slices of a cake left on a plate for you. On the hosts day off the "cake" is a box of cheap supermarket biscuits.

Breakfast is ok but side choices are only boiled eggs or scrambled. Nothing else (most chalets offer daily selection which would vary from sausages, bacon, pancakes, French toast etc.).

On the hosts day off no fresh bread is delivered or provision made for that and you're not allowed to operate the oven to turn the frozen pastries into cooked ones. Again in other chalets I have known provision to be made for fresh bread to be delivered daily.

Someone who could cook could probably sort this side out pretty quickly. As it easy you feel you're being fobbed off with cheap, easy to produce food that's not that good. It's sad as this detracts from what is otherwise a good experience and what is in many ways a very good chalet.

Hi Peter, totally gutted with a great deal of your comments in respect of the food. I do need to put the record straight though in that ALL the afternoon cakes / biscuits are home cooked. The soup is also home cooked - nothing is made from processed ingredients or bought from a tin or other such starting point. We are very disappointed that you did not enjoy the food BUT we get an enormous amount of positive comments about the food as can be seen from AlL our other reviews on Trip Adviser. We are very glad you liked the other aspects of the chalet though and we would also point out that from next season we are offering transport for guests who prefer to ski out or get the Navette out. we cant please everyone and although we endeavour to do so, we have clearly failed in certain aspects as far as you are concerned. That said, we are extremely sure that you have not been to chalet that offers everything our chalet offers for the price we charge. We would love to have you back and show you that what we offer is extremely good value for money.

“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed March 17, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

A fantastic place to stay on the outskirts of Alp d'huez. The hosts Gill & Roger were great, giving a wealth of information on the resort and best places to go, even joining us one night at 'the underground' for some live music. There's plenty of space with cosy rooms and even a snug if you don't want to watch the footie with the boys in the group ;) It was especially nice to meet the owner Tim whilst we were there with his friends. We would love to return again and a big recommendation as a great place to stay with amazing skiing, good food and lots of places to go for a drink after a hard day on the slopes .... oh and not to forget the fantastic views from the jacuzzi at the front of the chalet.

“Great Chalet”
Reviewed March 15, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Really lovely chalet set at the second hair pin bend in Alpe D'Huez. Good sized communal areas with clean, tidy bedrooms, a great sauna and a hot tub overlooking the mountains. Less than 10 mins walk to the bus stop - but buses only once/hour so you'll need to be organised. 10-15 mins walk into the "Old Town" up a steep slope straight out the chalet door, or 20 mins via the hair pin bends. No night bus, or taxis so it's not for the faint hearted after a big night out. Supposedly ski in/ski out, but snow dependent and we couldn't do this unfortunately during out stay without off pisting through a stream! Overall a great stay with LOVELY hosts, just transport logistics a consideration.

“Beautiful chalet with stunning views”
Reviewed March 13, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

A lovely cosy chalet in Alpe d'Huez located just on the outskirts of which gives the chalet spectacular views of the mountains.
There is ample room in the chalet for groups of friends to single people. We were 2 couples and had ensuite rooms which were lovely
The chalet also has a sauna and hot tub which offers a much needed rest bite after a long day skiing or snowboarding and the hot tub faces to the south so you get a lovely view whilst relaxing as we did with a nice chilled wine!
We had a catered option and the food was delicious, prepared by the lovely Gill and Roger who were not only great in the kitchen but had a wealth of knowledge about the area which is always very useful. We would definitely return to Alpe d'Huez and certainly Chalet Cornillon and would recommend this chalet to everyone.

“Fab hosts, fab chalet fab view”
Reviewed March 13, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The chalet was very well laid out, comfortable and cosy. The views were outstanding. The hot tub was very lovely after a hard days skiing and its location is amazing. The food was plentiful, wholesome and lovely. The hosts were very welcoming, knowledgeable and very helpful. The only slight downside is the access to the slopes with limited bus service but I believe they are looking to put a minibus service on and to be honest it's not much hassle probably just being picky. Would highly recommend this chalet and resort
