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.

Après ski with live music will run until 7:30-8pm, when Evo Kitchen will take over to serve delicious restaurant evening meals. There is a brand new terrace to sit and enjoy the village atmosphere and food is served throughout the day
For Grangettes guests, evening meals are taken in the hotel dining room and there is the usual staff day off midweek when just a continental breakfast is provided. You can also swap your evening meal for a 20 Euro credit to spend in the Evo Kitchen restaurant which must be used on the same day of the swap.
