“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful time in Morzine, staying at Chalet. D'amo! Nigel and Linda couldn't have been more accommodating, friendly and helpful. The Food was home cooked and very tasty, my only complaint is that I put on half a stone!!!! Rooms are simply decorated, clean and comfortable, tonnes of hot water and great showers! There was no TV in the room but not quite sure why you'd want one! We were there to ski and socialise! Lets face it, you don't go to france to sit in your room and watch TV!! Our hosts ferried us about and looked after us so well...... we wanted for nothing! Both have a detailed knowledge of the area, helping you to miss the queues!! Can't sing their praises enough! We will be back!!
Potatoes, potatoes!
Thank you, Nigel, Linda and Archie.

Thanks to Nigel & Linda for a great 5 day break away in my best trip to Morzine yet. I travelled with my son and daughter and step son and step daughter and we had a room for three for the boys and a room for two for the girls. Food was great and so much better than hotel buffets ! The personal touch was superb with Nigel spending time with us pointing out the best places to ski and giving a few pointers to the kids and taxiing us to and from the slopes. Value for money was important as there were 5 of us and I don't think you could find somewhere offering the service quality at this price and offerings such flexibility in terms of check in check out. And to top it all the best snow and sun I have had in 6 visits to this area. Love to Archie ! Grahame and the gang !!!

This is an outstanding place to stay with friendly and accommodating people running the chalet - Nigel and Linda were such welcoming hosts who could not do enough to ensure our stay was a memorable one.

What a great break, excellent service, could not fault a thing, wonderful hospitality, and a man who can cook ....

Nigel is an experienced skier and an instructor who's patience was tested greatly.

Chalet D'amo is located about a 6 minute drive away from the town of Morzine and the ski lifts to Les Gets / Morzine. The chalet is very old fashioned and is run and managed by Linda and Nigel who are two middle aged English expats. They are very nice people and also very welcoming. The bedrooms are extremely basic with no TV, just beds and a bathroom - which is all you really need. The floor boards are very creaky and sometimes it is very difficult to sleep when people are above (you can hear every foot step). However, that didn't bother me and my girlfriend that much as we are only 20/23 years old and not pensioners. The breakfast is very simple with cereal, fresh bread and croissants on offer every day with tea/coffee and juice. This gets a bit boring after a while, but it does the trick. Linda and Nigel offer a taxi service (free of charge) to the town in the morning and in the afternoon after skiing which is handy. Nigel is very opinionated and will try to get you to go out skiing with him regularly, which we did once. He is a 'practising' ski instructor so he knows the area well, but if you want to go fast and do crazy stuff then he isn't your man! He is however good for beginners and will teach you some very basic stuff.

If you are looking for a cheap place to stay in Morzine, which offers really limited living space and just a bed room then this is your place. If you want a bit of luxury, space and a place to really relax after a long day skiing then don't book here. I would return if there was nothing better on offer.

PS. Don't be scared of the dog (Archie), he is a big softy and doesn't bite!

Room Tip: Top floor, so you don't get woken up by the people above!

Arranged to take the Trinidad and Tobago Ski Team www.TTITS.biz to this chalet, for a weekend training camp, mid April, Fri 13th to Sun 15th. A single sex team of 16 gents with little or limited experience of snow or the skiing environment.

We arranged, after getting some indicative quotes from local providers, our transfers and Skis and Boot Hire with the Chalet Owners, Linda and Nigel, which worked perfectly.

Nigel guided us throughout our stay, and Linda with assistance from Rach provided the point of contact and prepared the good food that we received each evening, included within the half boad price, in addition to the offer of wine with dinner.

The location of the chalet is at the far edge of the village of morzine, and I estimate to walk to a lift could take 20/25 mins, however during the day and until 1 am at night we were never left without a lift from the responsive team.

They have a massive huge beautiful and utterly gentle dog, which if you didn't want him to be a bother then he would not be, however I think that most people will end up searching him out as he is such a big cutie!

Morzine if you have never been before is a great place for skiing learners and intermediate skiers, which combines wide tree lined slopes with great nightlife.It is not Ischgl or St Anton, but it is a great option if would would prefer to avoid the advanced pistes of those Apres Ski focussed Austrian resorts. Although I would not recommend going to Morzine in mid april if you are looking for a mad atmosphere, unless you are with 16 members of the TTITS!

Overall, the Chalet was incredible value. You should be expecting a 2/3 Star Chalet, I would say it was more 3 Star than 2 Star, but the way that you are looked after is better than a 5 star hotel, absolutely the best hospitality that you could get really.

We had a short discussion with Linda at 2 am on saturday night, after a little misunderstanding, but in the morning apologies were exchanged and we were treated as wonderfully as we had come to expect. Just goes to show that even in a crisis it is a good place to be!

Ok so rooms were clean, beds clean, the chalet was spotless. Some rooms better than others in their decor, but most ensuites were well located and functional.

Just returned from a long weekend at Chalet D'Amo with a group of friends and had an amazing time. Chalet spotlessly clean, comfortable and warm but not as warm as the reception you get from your hosts Nigel and Linda for whom nothing is too much trouble. Chalet situated just outside Morzine but as they are happy to run you in and out of the town you get to enjoy tranquil surroundings with the benefit of not worrying about getting around. We were already planning our next trip before we had even left. Thoroughly recommended!
