Reviewed September 7, 2013

So, this hotel is about 5-10 min walking distance from the centre. There is enough parking space if you are by car.
The rooms were relatively big and many of them have a balcony with a good view. Free wifi, small TV, fine bed. In my room the bath-shower combi did not have a spot to hang up the shower; so you have to hold it. Great way for a hotel to save on water, but annoying.
The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly. The breakfast in the morning was ok. Quite some choices, but nothing too luxurious.
Well, then you have the price. In summer you get a 2p room for under 60 eur.

Room Tip: The rooms on the back-side have a balcony with view. Sun form morning to evening.

The owner of the hotel was very kind, inc. the staf. Every morning and evening she came to have a little chat, and was always interested! We booked half board, and the diner was excellent! The kitchen is well known as a very good restaurant. One night we had raclet or cheesfondue. If you're looking for a very good price and good quality, than you've found it. En ben je een zeikerige nederlander, dan moet je maar de portemonnee trekken als je beter wil.

I was on a cycle tour and arrived soaking wet (the only two hours rain of the week though). No problem, the bike was safely stored downstairs and wet clothes put in the drying room overnight. I had a diouble room at the rear of the hotel with balcony overlooking the valley.The bathroom was modern with shower an everything was very clean. Had evening meal and breakfast and both were excellent.
The owners really made me feel welcome and I would love to have stayed longer. I would certainly stay there again if I was to visit Chatel.

We booked having read the reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. We are frequent users of Logis and 2* doesn't mean room service, fluffy towels and maitre d's. Our quiet back of hotel room with balcony and views over the Abondance valley met requirements with ample storage and good bathroom (no shower). The whole hotel is very clean and managed personally by the engaging wife and skilled husband chef. We ate 7 excellent dinners from the demi-pension menu.The majority of guests were French with a smattering of other Europeans and no English (across all age ranges). Terrace eating when weather allows.

Room Tip: request a room at the back for the views

We, a family with 2 kids aged 13 and 17, stayed here for a full week of skiing. We stayed in room 19 and 22. Room 19 is small and has a tiny bathroom, but with a shower, toilet and sink in it. Room 22 is the one in the top of the hotel. This room is slightly bigger and has a separate bathroom. The beds were not really comfortable either, giving all of us some restless nights. Both rooms are on streetside.
Location of the hotel isn't great either. It is uphill to get to the village center where the ski-lift is. This is only about 700 meters, but walking that on skiboots....However, there is a busstop next to the hotel. About every 30 minutes the bus drives you to the village center where you can take the lift, or step in another bus to Linga or Pre la Joux, the other ski-areas of Chatel.
I would not recommend to hire a car though, as mentioned in a previous review. It will take you as long as the bus and you'll have to walk far from the parking to the lifts. And it pollutes the fresh air!

That were the negatives about this hotel. The positives:
- very friendly staff. Owner Marie is a really charming lady, whom brings a good atmosphere in the hotel. Supported by Benoit the waiter and the 2 young lady waiters.
- good food. The chef makes out of the standard dishes a delightful meal. Most of the time we had a 4 course diner with in the middle of the week a fondue/raclette evening.
- parking. Lots of parking places, even during this busy week, either next to the hotel or at -1.
- ski room. Large and easy accessible.

Still, I would not recommend this hotel to a friend, for the 2 reasons mentioned at the beginning.

Stayed there a few years ago with a group of friends. This place is run by a very nice family and they make you feel at home (dried our wet jackets after a wet ski day). The food was great (racklette!), the rooms were very clean. Short walk to the ski hill. I think this hotel and Chatel in general is the the best value ski resort in Europe.

We were a group of 4 couples and over all, the Hotel rooms were a little on the small side - but we were lucky to have been given a spacious family room with fabulous views. It was clean and comfortable, but the beds somewhat narrow and short!

The food was excellent and the service very friendly, although Madam closed the bar at 10:45 most nights except Saturday.

It was an easy 5 minute walk into Chatel centre, albeit up a slight hill on the way into town and down on the way back.

To get to the main ski areas of Linge or Pre la Jou it was a bit of a pain as you had to get two ski buses, one to the town centre and one out again, would highly recommend hiring a car and driving to the lifts.

As an intermediate skier Chatel itself is one of the best ski areas I have been to. Certainly on par skiing with Courcheval and Val D'isere. And, you can get good champagne at the Ice bar high on the slopes for 35 Euros a bottle! You would stuggle to get 3 x cokes for that in Courcheval!

Great skiing, lovely town, good for friends and families!
