Chalet Hotel Aigle

Reviewed 17 March 2014

My partner and I booked through ski world. We had the longest transfer I've experienced to get to the hotel which started with a 90 minute wait sitting on the coach at the airport waiting for other flights to land and fill the seats! I had been told we should get to the hotel at 1pm and whilst we landed at 8.30am and had been looking forward to an afternoon of skiing, it meant that we made it on the slopes for only an hour and that was a rush.

We were told our room was small when we wbooked, and it was but perfectly fine for the little amount of time we spent in it. The beds were extremely hard, no give at all, so I woke frequently throughout the night with shoulder and neck pain...along with the room being 24 degrees despite turning off the underfloor heating and opening our window!
And ladies-there are no hairdryers, so take one with you!

The food was very average, we wondered if the chef was new/temporary. Cakes were disappointing. Trying to get a cooked breakfast was an unnecessary problem! I was asked my order no less than 4 times by the same person one morning, even then it was wrong when it finally arrived 30mins later! It was all rather hopeless for those with lessons starting at 9am, many gave up trying for a cooked breakfast. It shouldn't be that difficult!
On the plus side, dinners are very sociable with communal tables and it made for a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We had a choice for each course and aperitifs and canapés were laid on each night which was a nice touch. Shame that the seating area has such old furniture, its definitely time to get some new comfy sofas.

Many guests complained about the lack of wi-fi in bedrooms, and even in the reception area the wi-fi was sketchy. It didn't bother me but you may want to consider this if you have to keep up to date with work whilst away.

The main selling point is the location, it is very convenient for several lifts. It is also great to come back after a long day skiing and head to the sauna and pool.

Jim was our rep and we found him very approachable and helpful.

We booked last minute and got a good deal so overall I was happy enough, but I wouldn't have been had I paid the full price.

We had a fantastic time, but its difficult not to with such a vast skiing area and sun all day, every day!

Room Tip: We booked late and so had limited room choice. We were on the first floor but didn't find it noi...

This was sold to us as a four star hotel. Hmmm. Not really. Zero soundproofing meant sleepless nights. Don't bother unpacking - there is no where to put your stuff. Beds were very poor quality. Pillows? Maybe from a prison. Room lighting was so dingy my wife had to use her phone light to put on make up. Lobby area not well decorated. The furniture? Shocking. Fireplace never on - didn't look like it was meant to be anything other than decorative.

The only plus is that you can ski in and out (just like almost every where in this resort).

To be avoided.

We booked this fairly last minute as there was a great deal on the Skiworld website. The great points are location, chalet staff and the food!! The rooms are small and clean but have everything you need and its a 'chalet style' lodge so you arent supposed to spend that much time in the rooms. We were a party of 3 so its a shame we had a single supplement to pay. The chalet staff were so helpful and friendly. Nothing was ever too much and they were always chatty and made us feel very welcome. The food was delicious! The cakes were outstanding!! and they accomodated any little requests..
The ski out was fine... ski in was a little more difficult.
The sauna was a warm welcome at the end of the day - but wish they had a hottub!
The only change i would make is Wifi in the rooms.. but it worked perfectly in the public areas. The TV didnt work - but it was a one off due to weather breaking the dish! and we are there to board/ski and socialise - not watch TV! although would have been good to see some of the winter olympics! would definately recommend this property if its the same chalet staff.. but look for deals!

Room Tip: we had rooms 24 and 25 - both were nice with balconies. Room 18/19 i think are quite small but you c...

Stayed at the Aigle, Tignes with my wife, two children aged 8 and 10, in August and a friend with her two sons. The holiday was faultless. It was our second time with Alpine Elements and previously we visited Morzine. The kids' club was superb and our children were delighted to have the same kids' club rep as they had the year before. They loved the activities, from archery to going on a pedallo, painting, trampolining etc. The food in the Aigle was also superb and the chef was happy to make delicious alternatives if the children did not a particular dish. The unlimited wine was a real money saver too and they were generous with it. The chalet was large, clean and comfortable. The free bikes perhaps could have been better made and were not really suitable for the red runs as they lacked suspension - minor criticism. Staff were friendly and helpful and the resort and stunning lake was idyllic. Loved the wine festival in Tignes, the free sports activity card such as the pool and tennis and pingpong. Will definitely go again no question. I even caught a trout or two in the lake.

Room Tip: Try and obtain rooms with a view of the stunning glacier. It is worth waking up to.

My husband and I had a brill time in Tignes. We were lucky with the weather and the Hotel was great. The rep in the Hotel was excellent and very helpful. The quiz night he organised was very good. The walks around the local area were beautiful. The room we had was very clean and comfortable and everyone of the staff were friendly and helpful.

We were very pleasantly surprised by Alpine Elements and Chalet Aigle. Had no idea what to expect. From the meeting at the airport to checking in to the hotel went very smoothly, and that is a testiment to the staff who were very helpful, friendly and professional.
The hotel was clean and well cared for. The rooms were basically kitted out with bed, wardrobe etc. which is fine as we didn't spend much time in there. The communal areas are also clean and the staff very friendly and always on hand, a well stocked bar, comfy chairs and tables to socialise or play cards. There was uk televison and wifi, and a swimming pool and sauna which are quite small but a fun thing to do at end of day.
The food was fantastic and Tom the chef produced some brilliant meals, Dan the rep was brilliant and his knowledge of the area and best places for us novice mountain bikers to try was invaluable.
The children's club run by Niaomi was brilliant so the younger members of the party could do age appropriate activities while the more adventurous went off for a while.
The complimentary Tignes Activity Pass allows you to do so many free activities that there was never a dull moment.
Fantastic holiday. Would definitely go back.

This was the perfect introduction to an adventure holiday for us and the boys (12 and 14). The scenery is outstanding, the activities are great fun and the staff at alpine elements made the whole experience very straightforward and thoroughly enjoyable. A long coach trip to get there but well worth it. The chalet was really welcoming and the food was top notch. We will definitely recommend a holiday with alpine elements.
