Chalet Hotel Les Grangettes Reviews
I phoned about two weeks before half term to try and book a ski holiday to Austria…and ended up booking Meribel after being so carefully guided by the travel consultant. There was little availability in the large Austrian resorts to suit my budget, so he looked at other options for me. He suggested Meribel and was able to use his own knowledge of working there in the past to sell me the holiday in an honest way. He really grasped what we needed (not far from the lifts as we had children), and gave me the confidence to book - without doing further research. I trusted him and I am so glad I did. The hotel location was fantastic. Whilst on face value the hotel appeared basic and in need of a facelift, it was very clean and comfortable. The food was great, the wine better (and the Prosecco and canapés were a bonus each evening). The staff were so kind and helpful and did not stress when the children (who all made friends) ran riot in the hotel whilst the parents ate dinner! Separate rooms for boots and skis were a great idea as it stopped boot rooms from being clogged up in the mornings. Skiing in the 3 Valleys offered so much choice and variety - a new favourite place to ski! Brilliant service from Iglu - thank you.

It’s attached to a very popular apres ski bar called Meribar, which has excellent entertainment after a good days skiing. You get approx 2euros discount on every drink at the bar, which adds up to great saving over a week. The rooms are basic, but clean and comfortable. The food was amazing and plenty of it and plenty of wine to wash it down. The chalet workers workers were extremely helpful in every way. The hotel/chalet is located approx 30 metres from the slope and 100 metres from Rhodos gondola. So location is fantastic, and meribel is perfectly located if you want to explore the three valleys. Booking was easy from the start, I was dealing with someone called Alice who was very patient and helpful. Transfer to and from resort was easy too.
