The Beausoleil is a really great place to explore the slopes of Alpe d'Huez from. It's situated right next to the main gondola, the DMC which offers access to the whole resort as well as being close to the ski school meeting points, lovely green beginners slopes and the snow park.
The hotel is simple but offers warm, good-sized rooms with balcony's and has a friendly bar. The evening food was simple but there was plenty of it and the staff were really warm and accommodating. The bar is also open during the day and is a really great place to stop and have a cheap but tasty lunch.
The in-house boot and ski fitting service is really handy - especially good if you're hiring equipment and keen to get on the first lift on your first day. The lift pass office is opposite the hotel and the main town bars and restaurants are a short walk away.
Overall this is a really great place to stay if you're looking for good-value ski accommodation with friendly staff and a nice atmosphere.
