We took advantage of the fantastic offer with Thomas Cook to stay in this Hotel as part of a half board package with flights, transfers, kit and ski passes.
We were slightly dubious with regard to the location of the hotel (when viewing on map) in comparison to Morzine and Avoriaz but we had nothing to worry about. There was a free bus service which collected and dropped off from directly outside the hotel which ran very regularly; it took about 10 minutes to get to morzine and dropped off in various key locations. The lift up to morzine we understand was good; we walked up to stretch the legs each morning as it only took 5 minutes.
It is a shame that the hotel is linked more with Avoriaz than Morzine in brochures as it is far easier to get to Morzine, and Morzine is a much nicer area! Avoriaz is just stacks of flats on a cliff edge to be honest - not worth going for apres ski but the access to an extensive ski area during the day is really good!
The hotel was very warm and friendly, ran by Aube who was lovely and extremely helpful. The food was fantastic; it was a set menu each evening but it was all so tasty and varied it didn't matter. The hotel bar was a nice cosy room with a log fire which we used for surfing the internet in the evenings and catching up with fellow residents about the days events. The rooms were basic but spacious and had everything we needed for a good nights sleep; by the time you return from a full day boarding/skiing, followed by happy hour (or 2!), you have time for a shower before dinner and by 9 is it bedtime!
Overall the ski area and hotel were amazing with the most extensive ski area we have ever experienced; we are boarders and thoroughly enjoyed being able to make the most of the entire area....we (like a lot of boarders) HATE button lifts so the resort is perfect as we avoided them all week but covered everything.
We would highly recommend this hotel and the area and we expect to visit again next year!
