Chalet Telemark
Reviewed 20 April 2013

Just returned from ski holiday at Alpe d'heuz staying in Chalet Telemark with Crystal. Great ski resort with good slopes for all levels. Chalet was close to the lobster pots for easy access to the main slopes. The chalet was basic but clean and in good repair. However the bedroom to the front of the chalet could be very noisy due to late night revellers and early morning piste bashers. The communal areas were spacious and comfortable. Chalet girls were very helpful and food and wine was generally of a good standard. Avoid the nearby Skiset hire shop, totally disorganised and rather rude.

Room Tip: Avoid bedroom next to the front door.

Reviewed 19 May 2012

I had never been to a ski chalet before and maybe this is just how skis chalets are? But the 4 star that it is given does not remotely compare to a 4 star hotel. While the brochure pictures do tell the truth, I suppose that I had expected it to be better in real life. The furniture all has the look and feel of being cheaper than Ikea. The towels and sheets are thin, well-used and threadbare - maybe they're better and cleaner at the start of the season. The hot water system didn't seem to be able to cope with the number of people in the chalet - its not like the chalet had been extended though so i suspect that they saved on the build cost by going for a boiler that wasn't quite big enough if the chalet was at full capacity. Obviously people want a shower after a day of skiing, but 2 days it was broken and we only had cold water unless you were the first two or three people to return, and other days it was luke warm at times. The lounge didn't have enough space on the couches for everybody so it isn't a chalet in which you can easily hangout in the comunal areas. Dinner was very poor - but I suppose that will vary depending whether the staff when you visit can cook or not. It had free wifi although that was a bit intermittent. Location was ok - you get bucket lift to the main area, takes about 10min. I won't be returning.
