Hotel-Chalet La Renardiere
Ranked #34 of 50 Hotels in Morzine
Reviewed August 9, 2011

We chose this hotel by default as it was one of two offered by Alpine Elements for a summer activity hoilday in the area. We were not sure how easy it would be to organise the activiities, imagining having to trek around town choosing service providers.However Alpine Elements made it incredibly simple and hassle-free, having a rep who was in the hotel at the most appropriate times and who took the bookings and made all the phone calls to check availability etc.
The welcome we got was marvellous-four smiling staff to greet the minibus and to take our luggage. That set the tone for the week. The staff were excellent, offering help at the slightest sign of us needing it. The manager Dave, was friendly and professional who took pride in keeping the pool and hot tub spotlessly clean, as well as taking time to chat with all the guests at different times. The personal touch extended to helping us out too-he lent us his bicycle lock for the day so we didn't have to buy one. Little things like that can count!
The food was suprisingly good. It was always a set menu, pretty British in its style, but very tasty and nicely cooked-no mushy veg or chewy meat. In fact, the meat was always superbly tender. The dessert chef was particularly good-we had both excellent panacotta and individual banoffee pie.
The hot tub was a massive hit with our 3 kids.
As for negatives, well, the only slight things which may cause concern to some were a thinnish wall between 2 of the rooms and some uncleared wastepaper bin liners in the corridor for a day.
Other than that, a great holiday, great value. We particularly appreciated the free 3 day bike hire (although not 4 as we were told at time of booking). Activities themselves weren't cheap if you have a family eg parapente $70, quad bike $40, bike hire $20 . For info, the fantasticable which looked great fun, proved a bit elusive because there are weight restrictions according to weather. Min 50kg one day, 60kg the next due to some wind. Definitely worth phoning before you make the trip up there to do it.
All in all, excellent service right from booking to leaving, good value and great fun.

July’s excursion saw me and a mate head to Morzine for a taste of mounting biking. We went with Alpine Elements via the net, who seemed helpful and prompt on the phone while booking in London. On arrival at Geneva we were greeted and taken straight by car to the Hotel (1 hour 10 minutes) with a few other guests. The hotel staff were extremely welcoming and we were shown to our room, without any delay. The bar seemed warm and comfortable (beers 4 Euro, with loyalty card), while the hot tub was inviting on a sunny clean deck, the garden was also in good order.

The rooms were basic but had everything required for s biking holiday. The bathroom window proved challenging to open while showering but I was just being greedy in wanting to see the amazing views while washing but a small price to pay as the balcony was spacious with room to relax and chill sat in a chair watching the sun fade into the valley.

So let’s get this correct the 2* Hotel Renardiere is for people who want to be comfortable while biking without room service and the luxuries of a 5* (see Madeira review, if you want this). It’s perfect for groups of bikers who wish to chill after hard days on the slopes situated in a fine location. The only issue with the company seemed to be with not the Hotel but Alpine elements (London) in the case of bikes included in the package are not suitable for the red runs! This was not mentioned on the phone! So an upgrade was required at 145 euro, but this did allow use of bikes for 6 day not 3 and staff in the workshop do a fine job making sure your bike is in working order for 9am start.

So the Stellar part of the hotel was the food which I have to say batted well above expectation (thank you Mark et al) not just with value but in regards to quality. The location which boasts fine views is a 7 minutes walk back after a night of festivities in town. But the main reason to choose the Renardiere was the kindness of the staff who were endlessly accommodating, late for breakfast, dinner or just need help with where best bike runs. Manager David and his team made a first class job in making our stay enjoyable and super value, thank you all.

Ignore negative comment as hotel is now under new management. We had a great stay here - staff, food etc all very good and only a short walk to town centre. Great views of town and surrounding area from room. Whilst mainly mountain bike groups families were well catered for. And our towels were changed frequently! Would definitely stay again. A great location for outdoor lovers. And MTB heaven.

Just returned from a great week staying at La Renardiere, we were greeted by a bunch of really friendly staff, who ensured that we settled in and started to relax straight away. We discovered at the introduction meeting that we were the only two females staying for the week, we were made to feel welcomed by all the staff and other guests.The atmosphere the whole week was really good. The mountaing biking was a great laugh, also the white water rafting, we took part in the arranged walks which also were really good. Scott and Adie were always on hand to ensure that we were looked after, even offering to sit with us at the evening meal !! Special thanks to Jackie your cakes are to die for and the meals were really nice. Great Chalet, Great Staff, Great Fun Thanks to ALL the staff - we will return - The Ladies ( Deb and Lisa).

we booked a summer activity holiday with Alpine elements. we had a great time, all staff were really helpful and attentive to all our needs, from the Manager,Dave,bar manager.Jo and Josh, it was Morzine Magic, the chef,Dave made some great meals. everyone was pleased with the menu each day. the cake in the afternoon was dilish. and you could help yourself to tea/coffee throuout the day, dont' need to take your own kettle for drinks. Morzine itself was so picturesque but none of the resturants and shops were open the week we went,5th june, that didn't matter really as we did lots of walking. white water rafting, bike rides, all included with guides or you could do your own thing, had a day trip to Chamoni. that was nice, went up on the lift to take the views of Mont blanc,ps, take warm clothes for this. cold. expencive though. 44 euro's each. so pick a clear day to get the best for this.. we walked to the nearest lac which takes about 1 hour, 15 mins, the same time to walk to Le gets. worth the walk. we stayed in the hotel on an evening as no where else to go that week but we totally enjoyed all staff and guests company. get a loyalty card from hotel. cost 7 euro's, a pint of larger was 5 euro's but with card was 4 euro. also got 50 cents of a 5euro packed lunch, order night before. still good value. thans once again for a brill holiday.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the front towards the pool side
