We stayed here in March for a week, it was a last minute booking and so we got a decent deal for the area. What a great find it turned out to be, the hotel's clientele appears to be predominantly French, so if it's good enough for the locals we thought it must be ok. It was more than ok, from the rooms,food,wine, free WiFi, facilities and accessibility to slopes and village you'll not go far wrong with booking this hotel.
The service provided was better than any ski resort hotel we've stayed in, we had a really friendly and approachable waitress at dinner, I believe she was Canadian, forgive me I can't remember her name, but she was very helpful when needed.
The room we had was slightly dated but was still very comfortable and clean, I understand they have renovating some rooms, so it's a working progress. Bath with shower, slight moan the shower was at low level, so you had to hold it when showering, a bit of a pain, plenty of hot water though so no big deal and a separate toilet, small flat screen tv with USB input that works for films/ video in case you fancy a night in. Free WiFi throughout the hotel this includes in your room.
Facilities in the hotel include a spa area with large jacuzzi, Turkish bath/steam room, sauna, pools with spa jets. It you get back a bit earlier theirs hardly anyone in, also you can get pool towels from reception. Small bar area and entertainment, gala meal each week, you can do this instead of the main restaurant, it was very nice but the entertainment was something to be desired, it was a giggle if anything else!
Breakfast was more on the continental side with boil your own eggs, pain a chocolate, croissants, fresh bread, cereal etc and great coffee and Tropicana orange juice! More than enough to get you through the day.
1 word 'brilliant' lots of choices; starters included a cold buffet with salmon, parma ham,lots of different salads, soups and more. Mains; steaks,fish, chicken, pasta, different veg and potatoes, they always had a special on include French stews, carved to order fillet steak ( quite rare). Dessert; all made fresh on site I believe just including prof roles, choc mousse, mini tarts, lemon tarts, and many more. Also fruit, yogurts, ice cream, lots of smelly cheese and fresh bread. Just generally so much good quality food, cooked to a high standard I couldn't believe it.
You also get free wine with your meal, it's as much as you like, red, white and rose. You get from some barrels/taps in the main restaurant and its very drinkable. You can also get free water and orange juice with your meal.
Though we got a great last minute deal on this break we would pay more to stay in this hotel, why it's only rated 3.5 stars in the brochure, can only be down to the room standard because everything else was excellent.
A small note on Morzine; this hotel is a flat 10-15 minute walk into town, the hotel run a shuttle but the bus stop is directly outside the hotel and runs every 10 minutes for most of the day, I believe it's the yellow and blue route and its covered with your lift pass. The village is lovely though eating out is pricey, drinks out reasonable.
The slopes are ideal for beginners and intermediates, lots of blues, nice and wide and not to busy, we we're lucky and had lots of fresh snow while there over night. I'm a bit better than a beginner and found this area really well suited to my needs and my more advanced husband was more than happy with the vast surroundingski area to explore.
