Hotel Le Cret
Ranked #11 of 42 Hotels in Les Deux-Alpes
Reviewed 21 March 2013

This was a lovely hotel in the centre of the village and close to the ski lifts. Not exactly luxurious but perfect for a family ski holiday with kids. Staff were lovely, really helpful and friendly. Poor Andrea was constantly pestered by our kids and was great with them. There were 8 of us in our party, including 4 kids. We all enjoyed the hotel, the kids had a lovely time playing around the place with some other children who were also staying there. We had a room at the back which was small but cosy. The room was cleaned and tidied every day. Rooms at the front were noisier. Food was good, even our fussy kids were happy though usually full after their pasta. Breakfast and afternoon tea were excellent. Would definitely go back again.

Room Tip: The polar bear pub was v noisy - avoid rooms at front.

If you are expecting 5 star luxury then this is not the place for you, Le Cret is 2 star. What it is though is a clean, functional, excellently located place to rest your head whilst you hit the slopes of L2A.

Rooms are basic but at a price which is on par with small self catered studios, this is a no brainer. I stayed for a week and had no issues with the heat of the room, plenty warm enough with extra blankets if required and a electric radiator too. The showers were always hot no matter what the time of day.

The breakfast alone is worth the stay with a good choice of continental fayre, cereal, cold meats and cheese, bread and toast plus lots of freshly brewed coffee and if you are up early enough croissants or pain au chocolat.

The hotel itself is about 5 mins walk from the Jandri gondola and centrally located for all the bars and restaurants. Would I stay here again without a doubt.

Perfect if your looking for basic and central, with good value, we enjoyed our stay here and found the rooms to be fine, although a little basic, it was some times cold though, on the first day at breakfast we needed to keep our ski gear on to have breakfast! In our room was an electric additional heater which helped keep our room up to temp.

All in all worth a visit.

Background:- We are a group of 7 adults that ski together every year we try and find good accommodation at reasonable prices to suit the needs of the whole group i.e price, location etc.

Booking experience :- The owners were very accommodating whilst I was trying to organise the trip with a couple of people pulling out last minute, Emma could not have done enough to help me, even organising invoices for insurance companies etc.

The accommodation :- The group found Hotel Le Cret very clean, tidy and the rooms were as expected for this class of accommodation. Yes the rooms are small but there was also enough wardrobe space for 2 people, we all had on-suite bathrooms, they and the rooms cleaned every day to a high standard. The location of the hotel is a five minute walk to the nearest lift and approximately 7 mins to the main lift in the centre of town. The Hotel is located near to some lively bars and the Secret bar under the Hotel is very good not to loud yet not to quiet.

Meals:- Breakfast was as expected, continental and cereals with the option some days for scrambled egg. Afternoon Tea again was very good with home made cakes, tea etc. The evening meal, this is where we were let down! The starter's and soup were good, as was the sweet and the selection of wines. The main course was a great disappointment for 3 days, it can only be described as worse than school dinners. Some of us sat down with manager after day 3 and told her of our frustration and it was taken onboard and she admitted that they did have a problem with the Chef and would be rectifying the problem from that point forward. The manager kept her word and there was a vast improvement in the main meal and on the last night we had some of the best sirloin steak i have tasted. Taking all this into consideration I would stay here again and I believe the Chef was only there for the beginning of the season and has now moved on as they don't cater for evening meals again until Feb half term weeks.

We stayed as a group in January 2013, and we were impressed with the cleanliness and general state of the Hotel and the rooms. They were clean, tidy and the whole hotel was well presented. The rooms were typically small with no TV's. However, there was a problem with the Chef. Offering evening meals for a limited period primarily over Christmas/New Year and Easter, the Chef was not presenting acceptable main courses. This spoilt what was overall a great holiday and stay. The bar below the hotel was great, offering a great curry for about 13.50 euro's. Located in the centre of the resort, it is well placed. Overall a great hotel spoilt by staff problems.

Room Tip: Choice one away from the road and the noisy 'Polar Bear bar' at night.

The hotel is in the dead centre of town so brilliant location. Fair size rooms and a bar below. Staff were friendly and keen to help. Great food and a really good holiday. Stayed here two years in a row we liked it that much.

We had a lovely stay at this fine establishment. The rooms were a good size, bright and clean. The owner was friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was good too. So much to do in Les Deux Alp in the summer apart from glacier skiing! I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel as a great place to stay and I suspect in the winter when it is buzzing with people it will be a fairly lively location too, close to the slopes and on the main shopping street too.
