“Great holiday in Deux Alpes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012 via mobile

Just had a great holiday in Les Deux Alpes. Stayed at the Brunerie, hotel was great ideally placed just a short walk from main lifts. The rooms were basic but clean, warm and the beds were comfy. The best thing though was the great food, we never were never left hungry and service was friendly. Defiantly recommended.

Stayed March 2012

Just back from a weeks Skiing staying at the Bruniere. Cannot fault this hotel and it's staff.Rooms excellent,cleaned every day,warm and comfortable,quiet,plenty of space.All Inclusive was fantastic, free bar from 16.00pm until 22.00pm.Think our party almost drank the Hotel dry but it saved us so much money as drinks and food outside of the Hotel and on the mountain were very expensive.Don't really know how they managed to make any profit out of us! Food very good and plenty of it.Packed lunch was a real bonus.Frederick in the bar was great,very friendly,soon got to know everyones tipple and replaced our drinks as soon as we had finished them! Great resort,Ski Hire etc excellent again very friendly,efficient service.Slopes excellent suited our mixed ability group,everyone satisfied,Daniel our Ski Instructor made the whole week fun and we learnt a lot.Would definitely recommend this Hotel and resort.

Just returned from this trip and can honestly say I wasn't expecting much from this hotel initially, but went for it anyway because it was great value. After the first day, we were all so glad we booked it and couldn't understand the bad reviews. This is actually my first review on here - I just wanted to make sure people know that it is a good hotel. We were 4 young adults (around 27) so can't comment on child friendliness of the hotel.

Food: Yes, its not the height of French Haute Cuisine but we thoroughly enjoyed it. The lamb shank on the first night needed only a fork as it was so tender, and the tartiflette midway through the week was great, especially as it was served with a very tasty charcuterie selection. The soup was always vegetable, but was always slightly different every day but still very tasty and the salad, dessert and cheese selection was brilliant. Breakfast had a large continental selection and pastries as well as scrambled egg sausage and bacon. This is the first time I've been outside the UK and had proper English bacon, it was fantastic! Packed lunch was perfect and its quite unusual to have it provided so it was a real bonus. It consisted of a sandwich (or two if you smile nicely!) a variety of soft drinks including red bull, crisps, a few sweets and babybels etc and some fruit. Perfect for a picnic on the piste, and it meant you didn't have to sort your own sandwiches out or pay crazy prices on the piste. We had friends staying in a chalet down the road and the food we got here was so much better than theirs.

Facilities: Admittedly the gym was a bit basic with only a weights bench, exercise bike and cross trainer, but if you want to do exercise you should just ski more! We had a routine of sauna, swim and hot tub and it was a great way to spend an hour in the afternoon after a long days skiing. Again, its not a pool you can do lots of lengths in but combined with the sauna with the hot tub it really is a good way to unwind. There's no changing area but we just went back to the room with a towel round our waist.

Staff: Here is where the hotel excelled. Yes, the manager is quite eccentric but we thought he was great. He is obviously very passionate about his hotel and just wants people to have an enjoyable stay. He's there early morning until late at night and never has a day off. All the bar staff, waiting staff and receptionists are brilliant and are probably some of the best hotel staff I have come across. They are all very friendly, helpful, fun and really want to make sure you enjoy your holiday.

Rooms: We had room 104 on the front with a balcony. The room was cleaned every day, the bathroom was nice (with a decent shower) and the beds were very comfy. Having stayed in a lot of tiny ski apartments, this was certainly a change for the better. Lots of storage space as well. We weren't affected by the famous noisy rooms at the front, but we're all fairly heavy sleepers. However I don't think you can really blame a hotel for noise from snow ploughs and delivery vans. The balcony was a nice addition as well as the view onto the slopes was great.

Bar: The all inclusive bar was brilliant. The bar area is very stylish and modern and is like any other bar, except that the drinks are free! The beer is good quality and they have a selection of house spirits which are included such as vodka, gin, rum, tequila wine etc as well as teas, coffees, hot chocolates and usual soft drinks. Premium spirits such as JD and fine whiskeys you'll have to pay for. They were showing the 6 nations rugby the day we arrived and showed a few football matches as well on the big screen in the corner. Only bad side was on one night someone arrived with a guitar and murdered a few songs while people sang along with him. It was really pretty awful so we had to leave the bar!

Overall: For the price we paid I don't think you could stay anywhere better in 2 Alpes and you could probably pay an awful lot more and get a lot worse. With the all inclusive package you could quite easily not spend a single euro throughout the whole week if you wanted to stay on a budget and you would still have a good time. Its 2 minutes walk to the main Jandri lift, and about a 5 minute walk to some of the busier bars in the centre so fantastically located. All in all, if I was going back to 2 Alpes or any people I knew were going I would thoroughly recommend La Brunerie.

We loved everything about this hotel. The family rooms were nice and big, clean and modern with plenty of hooks etc to hang up your ski gear. The food was fantastic, loads of choice at breakfast, packed lunch was real plus point, and the evening meal was lovely, they also did kids tea if requested. There were plenty of staff, and nothing was too much trouble for them. The manager deserves a particular mention, he did an excellent job and was always around to make sure his customers were all happy. The pool, sauna etc were lovely, and a real treat to come back to at the end of the day. Location for skiing also good, and the hotel had deal with the ski shop near the lift, which meant you could store you skis etc at the end of the day for free! We will be recommending this to our friends and will certainly try and come back.

We went with Crystal and the reps were rude and unhelpful - a few others seem to agree with me.

We'd always stayed in Chalets in previous years, but saw this as a good value alternative. We were a bit worried that we wouldn't be as well looked after but couldn't have been more wrong!

All the staff were very friendly and attentive, they always went out of their way to make sure you had everything you needed. The Basil Fawltyesque (in a good way!) Hotel Manager was ever present to make sure you were having a good time, cracking jokes and helping out serving food and drinks and clearing up after you. One of our group has an alergy to anything dairy and the Manager was very helpful and made sure he had his own meals made up by the chef if any part the meal that day wasn't suitable! He was just fantastic.

The food was generally very good with lots of options in the buffet section, so no one was ever left with anything less than a stuffed belly.

The rooms are spacious and are kept very clean, I think the bathrooms must have been renovated faily recently and the finish of all the fittings were very nice.

The free bar was a big draw for us and didn't disappoint with almost everything you could imagine available on the all inclusive. We were worried that the beer might be slop but it was good quality lagers all round. We were initially a little peeved that they would only serve half pints at a time, but once we got to know the staff a bit they started to bring new drinks over when they saw we were getting close to the bottom of the glasses :D

The location of the hotel within the resort is fantastic, being just a short stroll to the main lift up to the best skiing area (Jandri Express), and you can ski back to within maybe 50m of the door. It is also close to the supermarket, not that you'll need it, and a number of ski hire outlets.

The next time any of us visit L2A then we'll definately be staying here again.

I stayed here for a one week all inclusive ski holiday, March 2012 and it was excellent. The rooms were very good, always serviced well with good linen. The staff were always on hand, particularly the Mananger who I have to say was a very proffesional and attentive chap. The food was very good, with plenty of it and enough staff to keep things running along, and keep the tables tidy at meal times. I had heard this hotel had been slated before but my experience was great, keep up the good work!!

Room Tip: Heard the front rooms could get a little noise from the road
