We stayed for a week during our vacation in France and Switzerland in summer 2012. This is a fantastic family run hotel, runned by a former canadian hockeyplayer, his french wife, and their son and daughter are also helping out. From the moment we stepped in, to the moment we left, we felt welcome - and the hotel just got this speciel cosy atmosphere that you very seldom find in hotels. The rooms are very nice, sleeping quality good, nice bathrooms and the complementary breakfast is very nice, and you can make your own freshly pressed orange juice, very nice.
The hotel has a bar that is open all day until midnight, a nice garden where you can have your breakfast or your drink, a small swimming pool and a tennis court which is free to use for the hotel guests, they will even lend you rackets and tennisballs. Down stairs they have a game room.
The restaurant serves you absolutely excellent food, no wonder that the restaurant is mentioned in the Michellin guide of 2011.
And if you are there by public transportation, the hotel provides you with transportation to the 18 hole golf course at Les Gets, very nice course. If you are visiting the hotel during the winter there are 650 km´s of connected slopes to ski on, and once again the hotel provides you with shuttlebus to the nearby liftstations (five to ten minutes by foot).
And in summer biking is the big thing in Morzine - if you are going to rent roadbikes or MTB´s - you just go down the road from the hotel make a right turn at the lower mainroad and the first bikeshop on your left hand side, which is runned by an english couple, provides you with excellent service, good prices and good quality MTB´s and roadbikes. We did some roadbiking while we were there, and there are some excellent climbs just next to Morzine, we did the 10 km and 700 heightmeter climb to Col de la Jeux Plane, and the 14 km 760 heightmeter climb to Avoriaz the next day.
It is very seldom I give a five star recomendation of a hotel - and I travel a lot leisurely and professional. This is one of the most pleasant surprises I ever had in a Hotel - and the best small hotel I ever stayed in. So when we go back to ski in Morzine, this is the hotel, we will stay in, and if you are visiting Morzine, this is the hotel you wanna be in!
So we can give this hotel our absolutely best recomendations.
