Chalet Hotel Turquoise Reviews
We were a party of four older skiers and so the ski in/out was a real hit. It’s a bit of a yomp to the hotel from the bus but the luggage gets taken for you so no problems there. The hotel is fairly basic but has a bar, boot room with warmers and coffee machine available all day. The rooms are a good size with comfy beds and en-suite facilities. Breakfast is a buffet for cold stuff but you can also have a full English. Afternoon tea is very welcoming with fresh bread, preserves and delicious cakes. Evening meals were absolutely brilliant when we were there. With a choice of two mains. Quality was matched by quantity and the complimentary wine was very welcome! The skiing is both varied and extensive and caters for all abilities with some fantastic mountain restaurants and bars. So, all good so far. Now the staff: excellent without exception. Would we return? Well, we have just booked for next year!
Apres Ski: 4/5
Accommodation & Value: 5/5
The hotel is in a fantastic location- right on the slopes in Belle Plagne, which is in an ideal part of the resort- high up, and towards Les Arcs, so it is easy for keen skiers to reach both resorts. La Plagne is brilliant, with a great variety of runs, we had a joint pass, but only went to Les Arcs one day. We had lovely sunshine, but it hadn't snowed for a week or two- pistes well maintained, and conditions quite good, a bit icy in places. Hotel was basic, but staff very friendly and helpful. Food was very good, and the hotel was so convenient, we had lunch there a few times. Ski hire and maintenance are available on site. This hotel caters for young people but there was only one school party that week and the majority were adults. We had a room which could sleep 4, but for 2 was spacious enough and had a good bathroom & balcony- but the walls were a bit thin. The bar area was cosy,and the tables in the bar and dining area encouraged people to mix and chat, and there was a great friendly atmosphere. For the price it was good value for money. There were shops, including a small supermarket, and bars with live music within 5 mins walk- also in other parts of the resort, accessible during skiing, or by bus. Plenty of restaurants on the pistes, though not cheap.
