“Luxury ski holiday - but neighbours can be noisy”
Reviewed 22 April 2010

We stayed at The Lodge, Champery, having booked a week skiing in Champery. The accommodation is spacious and luxurious, if not minimalistic, with a lack of bedroom furniture on which to place clothes, or surfaces within the bedrooms to place objects such as watches, cameras etc.

The kitchen was like being at home with extensive cooking facilities and utensils. The fridge was large. The concierge staff were friendly and extremely helpful, letting us know where to eat and advising us about local attractions.

The hot tub was a real bonus at the end of a long day skiing making for prolonged hot relaxation with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. Sensibly, the house rules stated that no-one should use the hot tubs after 10pm to avoid disturbing neighbours. This is where the problems lay, as our neighbours, also on the ground floor ignored these rules using the hot tub with lots of noise and exuberance between 11.20 to past midnight on one night. This was mild in comparison with their noisy exuberance in the hot tub at 4.10am for 45 minutes. On both occasions, because of the proximity of their hot tub to our bedrooms, they woke us all, including the young children, and were reluctant to vacate the hot tub when we politely pointed out the 10pm rule.

Apart from this nuisance, which Mrs Miggins, the rental agents should be made aware of, we had an excellent stay.

My family and I stayed for 3 nights in The Lodge - Champery. In hindsight, I wish we could have stayed for weeks! The staff were very welcoming and helpful. We were very impressed with the quality of the 4 star apartments and of the services there were on offer: daily morning bread deliveries; meal deliveries; ski hire; babysitting; personal supermarket shoppers and many more. We had a fabulous time staying so close to the centre of Champery and also the ski lifts, the perfect location. We were completely at home in our apartment, complete with a hot tub, minibar and even our very own christmas tree! The partner restaurant of The Lodge, 'Le Centre', provided us with excellent dining on christmas eve and was also a highlight of our stay. To anyone who is looking for relaxing and luzurious holiday for reasonable prices, I would highly recommend staying at The Lodge.

Mrs Miggins' luxury apartments are the ideal place to stay in the winter. My family spent one amazing week there, and we cannot wait to return next year. Whether it was the friendly staff, luxurious accomodation, long hours in the hottub, and incredible services, everything was done to the highest standards - higher than can be expected of a 4 star establishment!
Every morning we had a patisserie delivery, so we could start of the day immediately by skiing. The ski passes and ski lessons for the children were organised by The Lodge staff. Upon our return, the apartement was clean and stocked for the next day, thanks to the shopping delivery service and mid week cleans. The evenings were spent cuddled around the fire with the children, or a babysitter could care for them as my husband and I dined out at the fantastic michelin star restaurant 'Le Centre', located a short distance away, where we experienced truly amazing food by the Swiss chef Denis Martin.
It is an incredible holiday destination, ideal for all, and brilliant for families.
We cannot wait to return, and would encourage anyone thinking of a holiday in Champéry to do the same.
