Iglu Ski Expert Review There are very few well-located hotels in Meribel, the Chalet Hotel Les Grangettes is an exception to the rule, it’s across the road from the Chaudanne ski lifts making getting first lifts no problem, assuming you haven’t spent too long in Meribar the night before!
Other hotels in area are at a higher star rating but will be at least 3 times the price. The rooms are a decent size and the staff are always very nice. One of the best located hotels in Meribel and the bar below which often has apres bands playing is always busy. Try and get a room towards the back of the hotel if you can, to make sure you don’t hear those apres has left behind!
The bar has a relaxed atmosphere, English staff and they sell pints. The bar also sells good value food and there’s always plenty going on to keep you entertained. The bar doesn’t stay open late to give the guests a good night sleep.
The property has many returning guests as it not only has the best location for the skiing but for everything in Meribel is within walking distance. The chalet staff have 1 night off and the restaurants nearby are fantastic, if you like cheese then a fondue is a must.
Jacks Bar is nearby where you can find crazy après and nightlife but there are also plenty of chic bars everywhere else in Meribel. Meribel is in the heart of the 3 Valleys ski area and Chalet Hotel Grangettes might even be the heart of Meribel. We recommend a week’s stay here for a good all round base.

‘Culinary Choice’ Dinner
Our Chalet Hotels make dinner a highlight of the day, with our 4-course menus served six days each week, accompanied by a choice of complimentary quality wines. Dinner starts with canapés and an a glass of prosecco, generally served in the lounge/bar, followed by a starter, main course and dessert or cheese selection to finish. We offer choices for each course, always including a vegetarian option, and ask that you make your selection at breakfast each day, so that our chef’s team can prepare everything fresh for you that evening. Dinner can be as sociable or as private as you wish, with larger tables for groups of friends, old or new, or private tables for more intimate dining for couples if preferred.
Vegetarian options are always available to choose from our menus, and other special diets can be catered for at a supplement, if booked with us in advance.
One evening each week your Chalet Hotel staff have the evening off, enabling you to choose from one of the local restaurants for that evening’s dinner, which our Resort Representative will be delighted to help you book.
Children of all ages are welcome in all our Chalet Hotels on all dates. We serve a separate High Tea at 5:30pm for children aged 11 years and under with an appropriate menu. However, parents may elect for their children (11 years and under) to eat with them at the adult meal times on payment of a £39 per child per week supplement.
