Family of four (2 adults 2 teens) without a mega budget, staying in Prolays & Ranfolly room which is in the annex.
The Prolays room is a big room, with massive sliding doors overlooking the mountain, with a big wrap round balcony.
The room obviously used to be a lounge of an apartment which has been altered slightly to include a twin bedded bedroom. It still has kitchen facility’s fridge, oven, hob & dishwasher (but no utensils / cutlery).
The Ranfolly is what used to be the bedroom for the apartment and is of average size with twin beds & ensuite.
The annex is where you have your evening meals and your breakfast, the main hotel building has the bar.
The breakfast has a fair selection of cereal’s and toast, jam, warm bread and fresh filter coffee on tap, you also get a hot cooked option each day of hash brown/sausage/bacon/egg (scrambled/fried)/ beans/ tomatoes.
The afternoon tea (served in the bar area) is instant coffee/ tea/ hot choc, cake and warm bread - as much as you like.
The evening meals - three courses - no option but we all enjoyed every meal, it was very good, (in fact the lack of choice made us all try and enjoy food we wouldn’t normally have ordered.)
The bar is well stocked and of average cost (€6.50 a pint) however there is a happy hour (and half)! between 17:30 – 19:00 and the pint cost €4.00). (We bought beer and soft drinks from the supermarket in Morzine and kept it in the fridge in our room).
Wednesday is the staff day off but the only thing you don’t get is an evening meal
The hotel and annex are clean and well kept, any problem (only one for us - a blocked shower tray plug) was swiftly sorted out without any hassle.
The ski hire shop is right next to the hotel, the bus stop for the Ardent lift (for Avoriaz area) stops outside the ski shop and takes about 10 - 15mins to get to the lift, the bus is every half an hour or so - easy, the hotel actually run a mini-bus for the Plenny lift (for the Lets Gets area) from 08:45 - 10:00 in the morning and then 16:00 -17:30 for the return journey, which is really good.
You can walk into Morzine which takes 10- 15 mins (15 – 20 in ski gear!) crossing a pedestrian suspension bridge (watch out its slippery!) which finishes at the Super Morzine lift (for the Morzine area), as long as it’s not really busy if you ask the driver of the minibus they will drop you there as well.
Overall we all had a really good holiday and I would without reserve recommend this accommodation and thank the staff for help making it a great holiday!
- 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
