“Great value, great location for skiing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

We found this hotel by accident online, and it turned out to be a really great find. The hotel location is perfect for skiing, being just over the road from two key lifts accessing two sides of the valley. The ski-hire shop is located beneath the lift, and with the generous discount for residents of Borderan, was great value.
The hotel itself is really simple, with the emphasis on function rather than luxury. The rooms are basic, but very clean and everything worked. We were lucky as the wifi from the lounge extended to our room too. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and the meals were wholesome and tasty. The overall value for money cannot be beaten, which made skiing during half term affordable. Don't stay here if you want to go out every evening in the village - it is a fair way out. This place is for those who come for the skiing and to enjoy a genuine French atmosphere in modest surroundings.

stumbled across this hotel by default but OMG what a find! Ok it's a 20 minute walk down hill into the town of La Clusaz or you can take the FREE bus, but with a ski hire shop and two lift stations approx 25m from the hotel door how good is that! Food was tasty and plentiful and the owner and staff so incredibly helpful and friendly, one night sending a car to collect us as the carnival in town disrupted the bus service (incidentally the bus stop is outside the hotel fron t door too)
4 pals on a short 4 day break unconcerned about fancy rooms wanting a good time skiing dawn til dusk would book this place again and again and again!

It was a remarkable stay during Feb half term. The hotel is uniquely french with us being the only British family at the chalet. Minimum english spoken by owners and staff which was great, forced us to speak/learn more french.
The rooms are very basic, my wife was not impressed on day one but settled in ok as the week progressed.
The chalet is close to the les jumet lifts, and convenient to get across the valley with the transvaal cable car. We love skiing la clusaz this was our fourth visit, so we know a few hotels in the area. The owners go out of their way to assist and were very flexible with the menu, if you wanted an alternative meal. We are pescatarian. Considering it was half term february when all prices are extortionate in the alps, chalet Borderan was amazing value for money. There are no frills here so no jacuzzi, spa baths etc just great value, great food and great service. As you may see not many reviews in english so decided to post this.
