“If you want to go back It can't be bad!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Just back from a weekend break in Morzine. We ended up at Chalet Eire almost by default as it was the only place we could find that had free any space. That suggests there might be something wrong with it. How very wrong.
Simon and Emma and their staff could not have been more accommodating. From the moment we contacted them nothing was too much trouble. Skis and lift passes were all waiting on our arrival. All we had to do was load them into the car and head for the slopes.
The chalet is lovely. The restaurant has great panoramic views and the bar area is both comfortable and atmospheric with big sofas to lounge around on and a pool table TV and X box for added amusement. The rooms are on the small side as is often the case these days but other than sleeping and changing we didn't need to spend much time in there so it wasn't a big deal really.
A special mention must be saved for Ken the Aussie chef. If you've ever been put off staying in chalets because of the quality of the food then you've not been cooked for by Ken. There are very expensive restaurants around who would be put to shame by his four course offerings. We needed a gluten free option which often means dishes containing gluten get swapped for a simple alternative or dessert is exchanged for a bowl of fruit. Not here. Each course was prepared as per the other main courses but he went to the trouble for instance of making
Gluten free bread crumbs. Thanks Ken.
Anyway you've probably worked out we love the place and have booked again for next season.

We stayed here for 3 nights as a group of 8. We have stayed in chalets before but not where we weren't the only guests. It actually works really well as it means you get much better facilities.

The chalet is lovely and in a great location, only a few minutes walk from the centre of town. The bus stop is very near by so you don't have to trudge in with all your gear and you can get to other areas very easily.

The rooms we had were mixed, our room not only had a double bed but also a bunk bed room, great if you come with kids. One of the other rooms, a twin, was slightly small and limited headroom, but fine for a few nights and very clean.

The food was extremely good, very high standard, the best I've ever had in a chalet. All the staff were very friendly and all requests handled quickly and efficiently.

I would highly recommend this chalet, whether you're in a group or just a couple looking for a few nights in Morzine.

We've both just realised that this time last year we were at Chalet Eira. What an amazing experience....Simon and all the staff really do go that extra mile to make everyone welcome from the moment of arrival. Fantastic food...lovely staff and beautiful location. Wouldn't bother trying anywhere else...we hope to return soon.

Just spent three nights at Chalet Eira 8th - 10th Feb. All I can say is its possibly the skiing experience I've had. Emma and Suzie on reception are amazing both before we arrived and during our stay. The food is superb. Chalet helpers are great. Great bar, pool table and hot tub.

Everything ran like clockwork.

Just a brilliant way to spend the weekend with friends.

Well done Chalet Eira

Returned last Night from a four day ski trip to Morzine. Stayed in chalet Eira.
Trip was a last minute booking decided to go only 2 days prior, very luckily Chalet Eira had room. The chalet is run by the very friendly Simon and Emma. They organised the Chalet, transfers, lift passes and ski hire.
We left Luton on the 7 05 easy jet flight and despite an air traffic controllers delay were on the slopes of morzine by 1 30.
The chalet hires its own ski's and had the lift passes ready so my son and I were equipped within minutes of arrival.
It is only 20 meters to the bus from the chalet door. The same bus stop can also be used for the short journey to the prodans ( forgive my spelling) lift to Avoriaz, which is much quicker access than via super morzine.
It is a few minutes walk down into the town.
The Chalet has around 30 guests but is very well staffed. Again they were all friendly and efficient.
The dining room was upstairs from my room and above that is a bar, with great views of morzine and the valley below. Dining room and bar are spacious. The bar has sofas and arm chairs to relax in, great wine and beers. There is also a pool table tucked away which the kids loved. Plenty of games available and a tv area.
Food, breakfast simple continental but plenty and good standard. Afternoon tea with home made cakes around 4 15.
Dinner children 6 30 and adults 8 pm.
Food is really the best chalet dinner I have ever had, 4 courses prepared by ken. It would grace a good priced restaurant you would not be disappointed. Any dietary restrictions will be catered for. Ken is a great chef.
On our last day we kept our room until the ski transfer arrived at 6 30 pm, so got in a full days skiing and was able to shower and pack. They also made us sandwiches for the journey.
Cost was very reasonable.
Overall the best ski trip I have ever had, my son wants to return to chalet Eira in summer to mountain bike!
Thoroughly recommended.

Stayed at Chalet Eira for New Year 2013 after it being recommended. What a fantastic chalet. Chalet was beautiful, staff were so so helpful, food was out of this world, bedrooms were great, bar and lounge was very welcoming and relaxing, fantastic location and the chalet dog was adorable. Ive never stayed in a chalet before but after this experience I will be booking Chalet Eira again. Thank you to all the staff who made our stay so easy and helped with all our bookings for skis, lessons, transfers etc. A truly wonderful team of people.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent

My husband and I had the privilege of celebrating our wedding at Chalet Eira last summer. We chose this chalet as it was big enough to host our family and friends (it has 21 bedrooms) but it still has the quaint french alpine chalet feel. Our family and friends were astounded by both the chalet and it's location. The staff at Eira were amazing. The chef was on hand to talk about our food requirements. The manager was on hand to talk about we would like the dining room decorated. The couple serving the food couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating. The owner of the chalet organised everything from drink to food to transfers for day trips. He also made sure we had exactly everything we wanted for our day. He was so amazing that I think he might have been a wedding planner in a previous life!
I genuinely cannot rate this chalet high enough. Superb!
