“Lovely setting, very good service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2011

We stayed at the Crychar for a week in late August. We are a family of three with a 7 year old child. Les Gets is a pretty Alpine village - relatively small but with enough facilities (supermarket, bakery, launderette) to make it functional. It is pretty touristy, but pretty with Alpine Chalet style buildings lining the streets. There is great access to the mountains via three ski-chair lifts in the town and easy drive or bus ride to Avorez where there are even more things to do. Lots of activities for an adventurous family. They do a 1euro a day pass which allows you to use the ski chair lifts (one way!) and a little tourist train. There is a nice lake for a swim (man made) an adventure park (for the over 8s I think) and a luge run in Avorez.
The Crychar is well sited, pretty much in the centre of town, although up a bit of a hill which gets the leg muscles going! It is very quiet and attractive. There had been a bit of a mix up with our booking (not the hotel's fault, but the internet booking service we used) and so we ended up in a smaller room than we'd planned for. Our daughter had a bed up in a mezzanine above the main bedroom. It had very low ceiling height above her bed and although she liked it, it wasn't somewhere she could really play - just sleep. The bedroom below had a lovely view over the mountains and pool, and the bathroom was very well appointed and clean. The room felt very small though. There were too small built in wardrobes but that was it - not very much space when you are there for a week. My husband needed to do some computer based work while we were there so it wasn't ideal, but having said this it worked out fine for us.
We ate in the restaurant one night and it was very good - but they only offered a set, 4 course meal, which was far more than we wanted to eat every night, and also quite expensive (worth it for a one off but not something we'd like to pay every night). There were lots of nice little restaurants in the town though so it wasn't too much of a hardship to wander out each evening for a meal. Breakfast was also quite expensive - probably worth it if you eat a big breakfast but we really just have a croissant and a coffee, so we wandered down to a bakery for breakfast each day.
The best things about this place, though, are the pool, which is lovely and pretty warm considering the location, the lovely bar area (with newspapers etc) and the children's games room which was pretty and well stocked with toys and books.
This hotel would make a lovely escape for a weekend, and if you have the budget to eat in house, perhaps for longer. The staff were very friendly and the surroundings very comfortable. Just a little bit small rooms for a family and a little bit more choice on having cheaper and smaller meals would have made it great.

This hotel is a hidden gem, warmth of staff genuine and not over bearing. Really, just the perfect balance. Great breakfast and very tasty dinners (not homely mountain food, more fine dining).

We are a family of four with 2 young children (3 + 5) and spent 5 nights in July at the Crychar. The weather was not great and so the hotel was pretty important ....! We could not have chosen a better hotel for a family holiday: Celine and her team were so helpful and friendly (and made such an effort with our children); the food was excellent (do not bother to eat in town as the Crychar food is superb) - and despite the set menu they were more than happy to serve something else if you asked; the hotel is very comfortable and tastefully decorated; the pool and playroom were brilliant for the children....I could go on and on...... It was also very good value (although I'm sure the ski season would be quite a lot more expensive). As Alpine hotels go, we think this is hard to beat.

Greg and Celine were the best hosts one could expect. Celine made sure we, especially our 2 young children (3 and 7) were splendidly cared for and Greg, who was also the master chef, was responsible for the extra weight we put on! We've never eaten so well, ever. Don't even consider having breakfast or dinner outside, it will be your biggest mistake. Greg and Celine made sure we ate like Lords. And the beef roasted over an open fire ... ooooh! And not to forget Julian, he was attentive to our dining preferences and made sure we were more than happy during meals and was great with children.

The location of the hotel was brilliant. Literally ski-in-ski-out. It avails itself to a huge slope which somehow seems private as skiiers pass by the top and left toward the base slope but never down toward the hotel making the 100m slope virtually private. The kids had hours of uninterrupted fun building igloos, as per the photo, in between their skiing lessons.

I could say a lot more, but my 7 year old has already decided that she enjoyed her 7th birthday there so much that she will celebrate her 8th there as well. Need I say more?

We spent 10 nights here recently and it was totally idyllic - we really couldn't find any fault at all. Wonderful friendly family run establishment and welcoming of our children.

Food was delicious, rooms modern and clean. Lovely pool and great children's play room. We would highly recommend this hotel.

We loved the friendly staff & homemade cakes for breakfast. Property is well maintained & beautifully done out. Swings in the garden and good play room for our 8 year old to mix with the other kids. Mainly French people staying here. Lovely views & swimming pool / lounger area nice. Just a short steep walk downhill to town. Only downside is rooms are small

Les Gets is a family friendly resort with a short transfer from Geneva. We got horribly lost driving from & to the airport, the car hire map was rubbish! Whitewater rafting was great fun & caving a good option if like us you have some rainy days. We hired bikes for half a day - if you are using the ski lifts more than once its cheaper to buy a magic day pass. Ask for discount on bike hire with this - our shop didn't offer this but when asked, voluntarily gave us money off.

We stayed for a short week in April 2007 in this hotel and we were absolutely charmed

The hotel is a typical wooden chalet literally on the ski slopes. It as all in wood, very clean and extremely well decorated if you like the cosy/ wooden style.

What was the highlight of the place is the food. Breakfast but in particular dinner were outstanding as far as quality/originality of the food but also presentation and service which was impeccable. Really not a 3 stars but definitely a 4 stars from this aspect.

The reason why it is a 3 stars is probably the size of the rooms and bathrooms that are not very big although really comfortable.

The hotel has a lovely bar with a fire place and a nice terrace on the arrival of the ski slopes and just in front of the kids ski school. Inside there is also a sitting/playing room for kids with several toys and games, a TV with DVD a black board to draw. We never used it but the Chalet also has a sauna and a Jacuzzi.

The atmosphere is very friendly, informal and , the owners and staff working there very nice and after a few days you feel like at home.

I would strongly recommend this place in particular for people travelling with kids. Beside the hotel which is totally kids friendly, Les Gets itself is a ski resort organised all around the kids. Lots of activities, a little train going around the village, easy slopes etc.
