Fantastic hotel right in the heart of Morzine (literally 30 seconds from the Plenay lift)....this was a plus side in the summer, but would imagine that in the winter this hotel could be very noisy!
This hotel is currently independently ran by a lovely French couple called Seb and Ang, however Alpine Elements use this hotel for their guests - the great plus side of this is that Alpine Elements is not rammed down your throat all the time.
The downstairs areas have a real "alpine feel", however to be honest there did seem to be a bit of a variation in the bedroom sizes .... the double rooms did tend to be on the small side and the quality and size of bathrooms varied enormously....having said that you don.t go to the Alps to spend time in your room! The rooms were however spotlessly clean.
The meals served were very good - breakfast was self service and there was a very good continental buffet. The evening meals were great with a real French twist. If travelling with children although a childrens menu was not offered as such, Seb was always happy to cook a replacement meal if the children did not like the sound of the evening meal. One thing to note is that Alpine Elements did not pass on any dietary requirements to the hotel of the guests that were staying this week, which initially did course a few problems ..... if you do have requirements insist that AE pass these on!
Would I go back ....yes
Would I recommend this accommodation ....yes
Oh yes there was loads of hot water!
