5 work colleagues have just returned from this super little hotel and would return without question. We needed somewhere close to Geneva airport (we were only going for a long weekend) that didn't break the bank on hotel single supplements and we needed to be near a quiet ski area. 3 of the group had never skiied before so we did not want to go to one of the larger busier resorts and overall Cordon and Les Rhodos hotel was absolutely perfect for what we needed. We had 4 'renovated' rooms and one 'old style' room - all of which were perfectly serviceable but the fittings did vary from room to room (so if you wanted a room with batch and shower then I recommend you request this at booking). We were on the half board option and whilst breakfast was a help yourself continental set up, it was more than adequate for what we needed, but the 4 course dinner was exceptional considering this is a 2 star hotel (I've had worse food in a 5 star hotel). The fact that the restaurant in the evening had more locals dining than hotel guests proves just how good it was. The half board option was a set menu each evening with no choice, but the lovely waitress checked with us each evening to make sure we were OK with the menu and offered us alternatives if any of the courses didn't suit. On our last evening we asked if we could swap the set menu for the 'Raclette' meal as we'd seen other diners having this and it just looked too good NOT to have it !. This wasn't an issue at all, and we were so glad we asked as it truly was as good as it looked.
the hotel is situated at the base of a blue run, about 25 m walk up the hill to get to the drag lift (1st drag of the day is free for skiiers as the cashiers hut is based at the top of the piste). Or you can catch the free ski bus that takes you up to the top (same bus also takes you down into the village for ski hire - I recommend the Pugnat ski hire shop, very friendly and very reasonable). we were there for the last weekend of the season and the snow in places was a little slushy, but on the flip side, it was very very quiet so perfect for 3 of our group as they had never skiied before. A hour's lesson for the 3 of them was €44 - how cheap is that !
All in all we have had a great weekend in Cordon - it's not a place for skiier who like extensive resorts (saying that though, it's next door to Megeve and 30 kms from Chamonix, so if you had a car, it wouldn't be a problem), but if you want empty slopes, cheap ski hire and lift passes, a great little hotel with very good food (mountain hut half way down the bottom blue slope was excellent as well) - you would have to go a long way to find anything better !. I would return without doubt
