We booked this hotel for our honeymoon, and we are so pleased with our choice. Hotel is a lovely mix of feeling very traditional with lots of wood features, but also very comfortable with modern touches. Our room was large and comfortable, plenty of space for all of our belongings. Shower was powerful with lots of hot water. Room cleaned daily. Food was fantastic, we were half board. Buffet breakfast in the morning, with choices of cereals, cold meats/cheese, pastries, yogurts and also scrambled egg and bacon every day. Dinner was a themed buffet each evening (Mexican, Italian, Asian etc) then a choice of a meat, fish or vegetarian main course, followed by cheese course and then dessert which was outstanding every night. Lounge was really comfortable to relax in after dinner and have drinks, also other people around too so the place had a bit of a buzz which we enjoyed. We were given a code for our ski locker when checking in, which comfortably fit 2x skis, 2x poles, 2 x ski boots and 2x helmets. Ski boots were always dried out the next day. Spa was a fantastic way to end each day, with a large jacuzzi pool with jets, a Turkish hamman and a sauna. Hotel also provide robes and slippers so no need to worry about getting changed to go from your room to the spa, and has lift access in case you don't want to walk through the hotel! Great location for Pleney ski lift, literally a two minute walk if even that. Also have access to the free bus/train right outside the hotel which takes you to the Super Morzine lift to go to Avoriaz. Overall, we could not fault the hotel in the slightest, we absolutely loved it and would love to return again in the future!

Loads of skiing considering beautiful sunshine.
