We have just arrived back from a family ski trip to Alp d'Huez staying at the Grandes Rousses hotel. We have three children ranging from 3-8 yrs so finding suitable accommodation can be difficult. This hotel was good as it has duplex apps/rooms which have a large double room, bathroom with a bath and separate WC and then stairs up to a second large eves room which had three ingle beds. There is plenty of storage space too. The stairs are rather steep which may be problem for very young children.
The hotel is very close to the free lift which takes you to the slopes/ski school. The boot room is large with lots of space for skis, each room has its own designated ski rack, and heated boot rail.
There is a heated indoor pool, jacuzzi and sauna.
We had breakfast there which was fine, a buffet, and available from 7.30. We did not have dinner there as we preferred to go out, and the dinner seemed quite formal.
The staff are friendly and speak English. There are hardly any English there with the guests generally from France or Belgium.
I would recommend the hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Les Grandes Rousses enjoy a spectacular location at the heart of the Alpe d'Huez ski resort. This ski-in ski-out hotel lies in the very centre of the village. You have the choice of putting on your skis here and taking the ski-lift or using the cable car mid-station. At the end of your day, you can ski back and take off your skis outside the hotel. The hotel's direct access to the slopes and hiking routes means that you can get the most out of the mountains. You can then enjoy the cosy atmosphere of a delightful, spacious chalet... for a ski holiday to remember in Alpe D'Huez. ... more less
