Spent a 4 day long weekend here with my husband and had a great time. Great that the hotel is happy to accept shorter stays and also offered private transfers to and from the airport so the booking process was very easy. Hotel has a very warm and informal atmosphere, which is encouraged by the comfy sofas and open fire in the bar area, as well as the 2 hot tubs at the back with a view of the piste. Had lots of lovely conversations with fellow guests, many of whom were repeat visitors.
This is genuinely ski in ski out as next to a drag lift, a chair lift and gondola. Ski rental shop was opposite so all very easy and minimal walking in ski boots carrying skis. We'd preordered lift passes on the Les Gets website and you can specify the collection point to be the hotel so they were ready before we arrived. The hotel is also very close to shops and bars in Les Gets centre, couldn't fault the location at all.
Food was good - breakfast pretty average, afternoon tea - great cakes, dinner - choice of 2 dishes for each course, the only dishes we didn't enjoy were a couple of the hot desserts, but most of the food was lovely. The staff were all very friendly and obviously enjoyed working with each other and would be happy to help with any query.
Only real criticism and disappointment was the condition of the rooms. We stayed in 2 rooms (due to availability when we booked so we knew we'd have to move), but one of the rooms did not have a working bathroom light and they'd provided a floor lamp for us to put in the already cramped bathroom (not to mention the health and safety aspect). They said the light had gone a while ago and they couldn't find a replacement bulb to buy anywhere so that was the solution. If it had gone such a long time ago, surely it wouldn't cost that much to replace the light fitting?? Apart from that, the rooms were actually not that bad, just a bit tired and basic (not even a hairdryer), but we did expect a higher quality for the price we were paying. The second room we stayed in was very cramped but that was only for 1 night so we managed. Also, our room was fairly quiet but there were some on the ground floor which would have been quite noisy, I'd expect, as well as any directly above the bar but then I generally sleep well after a long day's skiing and then a late evening!
The hotel feels very secure too, with the ski room locked at night and the front door has a security keypad to get in. There is a decent kids play area too with quite a few toys to entertain little ones. They also offer free wi-fi which quite a few people seemed to take advantage of.
Referring to the other review which commented on the hot tubs, we used one every day and didn't notice any problems with it, seemed clean to us and I'm quite a stickler for cleanliness, and the jets worked fine. We did use the same one each time though so it might have been the other one that the reviewer used.
All in all, we had a great time and will almost definitely be going back. Highly recommend!
