Hotel Stella
Ranked #14 of 19 Hotels in Les Gets
Reviewed 27 March 2013

Just back from a long weekend skiing in Les Gets and stayed at the Hotel Stella for 4 nights. Hotel was very clean and friendly, room very comfortable and ideal for a short skiing break. The food in the hotel was a set menu every evening and superb. The last night was a fondue and very tasty and fun too. All the staff were friendly and helpful, we could not fault them. Definitely recommend this hotel and will return again!

Just returned from a ski short break in Les Gets and would highly recommend the Stella. As previous reviewers have said, if you want 5 star you need to pay for it! But if you want a comfy bed, central location, hot water after a long day of skiing and good food then the Stella is perfect. We had no issues at all with the restaurant manager - he was efficient, courteous and did a great job, assisted by another waiter, Previous reviews mentioned there only being one choice - the food was delicious and well presented and a couple of people who refused the soup one evening were immediately offered an alternative. The buffet style breakfast was good with a lot of choice. There was one French family with 2 boys who were very quiet and well behaved in the restaurant - other than that it was all couples and small groups of friends. Probably not really a family hotel. The bedroom and en suite were really clean and the beds surprisingly comfy. Yes, it's maybe a little tired but on a ski holiday, you only need somewhere to eat, wash and sleep! Only 2 minutes walk from the slopes and lots of ski hire shops. We hired skis from Ski Republic and got 2 for 1 , just opposite the lifts and you can store your skis and boots there (even though the boots were our own).

Stayed at hotel stella for 5 days, the hotel is basic, but very clean... Typical of a hotel in the Alps.. On arrival room was ready and was given information about eating times etc and local area.. The hotel is really central and within 2 mins to the slopes. The town itself has lots of bars and restaurants right on the door step of stella.
The food was very good- it is a set menu but all fresh and homemade, probably not great big your a fussy eater.. But good variety and with 4 courses you won't go hungry.. Wine list is ok and reasonably priced ( especially for a ski resort)
Bed very comfortable and rooms cleaned daily..there is a small bar downstairs which some people used, which is also open during the day if you want coffee etc. staff are friendly and their English is much better than my French.. In summary a very nice, clean and convenient hotel In a very nice ski resort..

The marvelous Stella hotel with it's lovely owners also runs the Galaxy Residence across the street, which is unfortunately run by a woman "of a certain age" that really should retire already. If there is no space at the Stella, they will book you at the Galaxy, which does not offer the meal service but has lovely rooms and is extremely convenient to the slopes (4 minute walk) and in the middle of the charming village. When I called to check on some details of our booking, the guardian answered with an abrupt "Who are you?". I was taken about but tried to explain that we would arrive early and wanted to know if we could leave our luggage anywhere. She answered "we are not a storage service, I only start work at 2pm, and you can come then". I also asked about wifi service and she said, clearly annoyed with my questions, she didn't know much about all that, I should call the Stella for information. I almost cancelled right then, but decided to make it my mission to win this woman over with kindness. During our stay, she regularly pointed out how awful the guests in the residence were, pointing out that the Brits were the worst. At one point, a British woman who did not speak any French and was practically in tears because this guardian was yelling at her about a broiler pan from the oven that had not been cleaned properly upon checkout. I helped facilitate by translating between English and French with the British woman insisting that they had not used the oven at all, it must have been that way upon their arrival. With that, the guardian huffed that her cleaners were professionals and they would never leave such a disgusting mess. Then she proceeded to say she had had enough, that anyone would be crazy to do a job like she did, and she was not going to take it any more. She directed me into her kitchen to show me the dirty broiler plan that she now had to clean, and continued on her tirade about what pigs the Brits were. I continued my quest to win her over, ended up buying her a box of chocolates, with the vision that anyone with that must rage must just need a show of appreciation to come around. When our check-out time came around, we spent several hours cleaning the apartment, including wiping down all counter tops and bathroom - but granted did not pass the vacuum cleaner in the bedroom. She went into a rage, calling the the state of the apartment disgusting, telling me I should be ashamed as a woman to have such a lack of housecleaning skills. Are you kidding me? A shame, because the place itself is magnificent (I would easily give it a Very Good to Excellent rating), but this elderly guardian at the Gallaxy is befuddled at best, appallingly rude, and has no place being in any kind of position of customer care or having regular interaction with humans.

Room Tip: chose the Stella and if they suggest to put you in the Galaxy, ask if that same elderly female guard...

Stayed for a long weekend and found the hotel to be exactly what should be expected at this price bracket in this location - it was clean, in a good location, and the evening food was truly excellent - and the breakfast buffet a good start to a day's skiing. Every request made of the hotel was dealt with quickly and in a friendly way (including our using a mobile ski-rental company which apparently upsets some of the local hotel owners who don't like other people doing business on their property). I'd recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Les Gets who likes their skiing hotels to be simple yet get the basics spot on.

We stayed at this hotel for a weeks skiing in early Jan. The school French we still remembered obviously impressed enough to endear us to the staff who were very friendly and helpful. Swift check in and although we had a quirky room up in the eves which was a touch on the small side it was everything we needed. Nice view over the mountains too.

This hotel is towards the end of the main drag only 5mins from the main lifts. We hired skis from Delavay ski shop which is almost directly opposite the lifts and they let us leave skis and boots in their ski room each night which meant we didn’t have to do the (however short) walk in boots lugging skis. There is a ski room at this hotel but obviously we didn’t need to use it.

Also didn’t use the bar as there are quite a few lively bars in town (although we were there during a very quiet week) including an umbrella bar next door which was pretty reasonable and showed the rugby! There are a couple of supermarkets in town so we got some beers and wine for the room which kept well chilled on the balcony.

The best thing about this hotel was the food! There was a set evening menu which was very impressive each night. Really well cooked French food obviously made with quality ingredients. Our week’s menu included the local fondue which was really cool to try. Each meal (apart from the fondue) consisted of four courses accompanied by bread. Plenty of local fare to try! The wine list was the biggest shock; very surprisingly reasonable!!

We flew home on the Friday evening and although we had to check out by 10am the hotel looked after our luggage and had a shower room for us to use so we could still have a day skiing and wash up before heading home.

The skiing in Les Gets/Morzine is very good and just about enough to keep you busy for a week, but the expert skiers would probably want a pass for the bigger ski area. Great place to learn too. The town is really cool and this hotel very good. We will be back, already checking the accounts to see if we can manage a long weekend later this season.

Room Tip: Rooms in the eves are understandably not best for the taller guest.
