This hotel is what it is, it's cheap and functional but certainly not luxurious. It's more stag do / boys weekend away than a family destination, however you could do a lot worse if you're on a budget.
Having said that, it was clean and modern (looks like it had been renovated in the last 5 or so years), but the rooms are small and sound does travel. I was on the top floor and used earplugs and didn’t hear a thing (in fact I had excellent nights sleep whilst I was there) but someone else in our group was by the stairs and they heard a lot of noise from the bar. The bathrooms are also small but again perfectly adequate for a week / long weekend away. Although don't drop the soap in the shower, you'll never be able to bend down to pick it up!
It is definitely slightly out of town and about 10-15 min walk to the SuperMorzine (nearest lift). They do have a shuttle bus in the morning and afternoon to drop you / pick you up from here or at the Pleney lift in town. If you're after the nearest lift location then this hotel is not for you.
The hotel has the advantage of a bar so you don't have to go into town at night if you don't want to, which was a good benefit. The evening meals were very good and better than you'd expect for this level of accommodation. The breakfast was ok, the hot option could have been a bit bigger portion wise and the sausages were well overcooked, but overall it was ok as start to the skiing day.
The staff although young, looked after us well and gave great service, they are an asset to the hotel.
Would I stay again? With an all male group maybe but certainly not with the family.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel enjoys superb mountain views and a fantastic location on the 'Sunny Side' of resort at the Morzine / Montriond border. It is close to the Super Morzine Gondola, and a 5-7 min walk to the suspension bridge which accesses the bars, shops and Gondola.We run private minibuses to shuttle you to and from the slopes during the day if you prefer not to walk. They are especially good for those that want to ski the Pleney slopes at the other end of town, but not so necessary for those that want to ski Super Morzine and the main Portes du Soleil area.The Ridge enjoys fantastic panoramic views looking out over the whole of Morzine and up into the mountains. The hotel has 30 ensuite bedrooms and a lovely modern, contemporary design with a rather chic looking bar and restaurant. There is a large sun terrace offering the same wonderful views of Morzine. ... more less
