Residence Chalet Val 2400
Ranked #18 of 29 Hotels in Val Thorens
Reviewed 3 January 2013

My friends and I spent a week skiing in Val Thorens and stayed at Chalet Val 2400. Overall our experience of Val Thorens and the accommodation was positive, however there were a number of issues that came up which I would not have expected from a 4* resort.

We stayed in an apartment which can accommodate 8-10 people. The place was significantly smaller than the pictures suggested. This was not a problem in itself but the size of the apartment did surprise us. There was no bedding for the sofa couch, and once we requested this it was sent up without pillow slips. This is something I would expect was checked before we checked in.

Upon arrival we found that the dishwasher was not working; again I expect that something like this would be checked before we checked in or after the previous people have left. Once we mentioned this to the reception someone was sent to fix it, however the next day it broke again. After that we were forced to operate the dishwasher in it's partially broken state. Considering the resort expects you to clean the apartment thoroughly before departing (or risk loosing your €500 deposit) I expect them to at least provide us with the means to do so.

When we booked we were told there would be a mid-week cleaning service; this never happened. On the first day we were there the sink in one of the bathrooms completely clogged up; it took 2 days for this to be addressed. There was also a limited number of wifi connections; after the first few people logged on the rest of the group was unable to do so as the 'connection was full'. In an apartment that accommodates 10 people we would have thought there would be at least 10 connections available.

In general we had a good stay at Chalet Val 2400, and the majority of the issues we highlighted were addressed by the hotel, but for the price you pay and the level of the resort, we expected a lot more from it.

The staff here were really great, very friendly and happy to help with any queries. There were 8 of us in our apartment and it was perfectly big enough for us all. We had no noise from outside or other apartments in the building. The wi-fi internet was unreliable but usually worked ok in the mornings. It is located in Les Balcons area of Val Thorens which isn't quite as ski-in-ski-out as most of the resort. We had about a 200m walk with our skis in the morning to get onto the piste but you could ski back almost to the door in the afternoon (NB: to do this you had to go off piste and needed to be a reasonably proficient skier). I'd happily stay here again - it's not a luxury apartment but it was good value for us and very comfortable.

6 of us stayed in Chalet Val 2400 for a week at teh end of January. The apartment was quite roomy in comparison to other accommodation that we stayed in at the same resort last year. The bathrooms layout is very good and the kitchen and fridge are a good size which allowed us to cook and eat in most days.

The items that i thought were a little below standard were the fact that the hotel provided cleaning products for washing up but thye only provided two dishwasher tablets which meant we had to wash all items by hand for teh second half of teh week. Also only a small bottle of washinng up liquid is provided so when we were checking out we were practically just rinsing the cooking ware with water.

Also while the sheets are changed the pillows and blankets are not cleaned and there are not any pillow cases provided so you sleep on a pillow that has been used by others prior to your stay. This only struck me while we were cleaning for our departure but it is not a pleasant thought. Also on your payment receipt it states that cleaning services are included. This is not the case and you are expected to clean your appartment prior to departure and this is inspected.

8 of us stayed at Chalet Val 2400 in January 2012 - my husband and I, our toddler, my mum and 4 friends. Having booked early (we booked direct with the owners), we got a good deal that included lift passes so the holiday worked out relatively cheap.

We'd stayed at Chalet Altitude in Les Arcs previously so we knew what level of 'luxury' to expect - the accommodation is fairly basic but has everything you need (although if you were self-catering you'd probably want to bring some decent knives!!) In fact our apartment in VT was really nice: light living area (slightly weird layout with a pillar in the middle, but we managed!), 4 bathrooms, one of which seemed to have been newly decorated, big table, space to store ski boots, jackets etc (as well as the ski locker downstairs for skis), 2 really good sized double bedrooms and 2 small twin rooms. Our apartment was on the 3rd floor and I didn't notice any noise from the pub below.

The swimming pool in Chalets Altitude, just a quick dash through the car park, is lovely and was much enjoyed by toddler every morning (when it was completely empty). Apparently the sauna was good too.

One of the things that made this trip so pleasant, at least for my family, was the friendliness and helpfulness of the Chalet Val staff. We'd traveled overnight on the Eurostar so arrived at 8am. My mum and toddler were in our apartment by the time my husband and I had got back from the ski hire shop (we'd been told by the bookings team that we wouldn't be able to get in before 5pm). They provided a high chair, a cot made up with sheets and blankets and when the TV stopped working the maintenance man was on the case straight away, eventually bringing us a new one when 3 different people couldn't work out how to fix it! All the staff were so friendly, playing games with toddler when he was in reception and letting him play with their walkie talkies.

We had catering by Matt from SkiFrance, who brought us breakfast, baked a cake every day for our lunch/tea and made some amazing evening meals - a feat made even more impressive when you saw the size of the kitchen he had to work in. Absolutely minute!! I wouldn't like to try self-catering... Matt was also really friendly and super helpful. An excellent host :)

We stayed here over Christmas 2011. 8 adults, 2 children and a baby. We thought it was vastly overpriced and certainly not luxury. It was listed as 10 to 12 person. Although the dining table was large enough, the sitting area was very small. There was in fact only enough soft seating for 6 people, the kitchen area was tiny, poorly equipped, and allowed only one person in it at a time. The wifi was very unreliable and I only managed to connect 3 times during the week. It was a a few hundred metres walk to the piste and skiing back was certainly not for beginners. The worst part of all was when, on the night we arrived, a radiator in one of the bedrooms burst spraying water all over the room. It was replaced 3 days later and we were presented with a bill for 170 euros. They said it was our fault as we had opened a window!! Fortunately, out booking agent sorted it out for us. We have been skiing in the 3 valleys for several years and this has been our worst holiday there. We shall not stay at Chalet Val 2400 again.

We stayed at this place for 1 week with my husband and our 2 kids aged 5 and 6. The apartment was nicely decorated and spacious. Nevertheless, for the price they are asking for, I would have expected an apartment perfectly cleaned at our arrival. This was not the case. The dishes were partly dirty (probably because the dishwasher was not working perfectly), I found a dirty shirt behind the sofa which was not ours, the floor in the bathroom was not very clean. In top of that, the bed covers were very old and the beds not comfortable. This was not ok for the price they are asking for. I would have expected a better quality.
Apart from that, the residence is well located and directly on the station and there was a very nice view from our balcony.

We stayed here with 10 friends in the Dutch Week - Appartment is basic, but has al that you need. Good beds, always important and very close to the ski pistes!
