and despite other peoples opinions I didn't find it was that cheap either! We arrived to be given the key to our room, opened our room door to be met with the choking smell of stale smoke, urine, and old socks, the beds in the room were all damp and the room was simply shocking with badly stained pillows etc. We paid £990 between 3 of us for a 4 night stay here and I do not consider that good value considering its self catering and the shocking state of the place, We complained about the room and were eventually given 4 keys to try and find an acceptable replacement room.
All the rooms were pretty much the same but we did manage to find one that didn't have the same stench as our original room!
I thank God we didn't attempt to put 5 adults in this room as the hotel claimed was possible, I cant imagine we would have remained friends for too long! It was too small for 3 never mind 5 adults.
The showers did have plenty of hot water as suggested but you needed to hold the shower head up yourself and that was common to all 5 rooms we looked in.
The manager and reception staff tried their very best to help but knew it was a losing battle.
At the end of the day we came here on a lads short ski break and I thoroughly enjoyed everything Val Thorens had to offer, great restaurants, great skiing area, some decent pubs and above all a great location. The noise didn't really bother me and we probably helped to contribute to it a bit, but out of 40 plus skiing trips this is without doubt the worst accommodation I have stayed in, (bizarrely the second worst was in Les Menuires down the road!)
This is not a family friendly place to stay and was quite rowdy at night but some will accept these things when considered with the location.
I'm sorry not for me, I would rather have a little walk from somewhere and you're never far from a slope in Val Thorens..
