Hotel Les Lans is a small, friendly, family run hotel in Les Prodains which is situated between Avoriaz and Morzine. The ski bus stops directly outside the hotel which means Morzine is less than 10 mins away and the main gondola to Avoriaz is either a 1 minute ride on the ski bus or a 5 minute walk in ski boots.
If you are looking for lively après ski and a good nightlife, Les Lans is not the place for you – you would be better staying in Avoriaz or Morzine. Les Lans offered clean comfortable accommodation with good, wholesome food and the opportunity to have a drink in their cosy bar before retiring ready to hit the slopes early the next day – in our opinion it was almost perfect!
When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by Aube, the hotel manager and daughter of the owner. Aube speaks excellent English and our welcome to the hotel was very warm and informative. The transfer from Geneva to Les Lans with Crystal Ski was very efficient which meant we were on the slopes just after lunch on Saturday – you can buy a half-day pass from the ticket office in Les Prodains.
The rooms are a reasonable size and although basically furnished, were very clean and comfortable. We also had a private balcony. The bathroom and toilet were separate and very small but perfectly adequate. Some of the reviewers have complained the shower was too low but this is a minor inconvenience - the bathroom was clean, fresh towels were provided every day and there was stacks of hot water if you wanted a bath – so really there was nothing to complain about!
Breakfast was self service continental with plenty of cereals, bread, cheese and meat. Orange juice, water, milk and hot drinks were provided. The evening meal consisted of a 4 course, fixed menu (tell Aube in the morning if you do not like what is on offer) There was a cheese fondue one evening and a meat ‘grill’ on another evening. The only criticism was on the day we left we were too early for breakfast. Aube provided us with a piece of fruit, a small sponge cake and a drink which would have been fine as we planned to get breakfast at the airport. Unfortunately for us, Crystal Ski made such a mess of the transfers and after 4 hours on the coach, we arrived at the airport less than 40 mins before our flight so had no time to get anything to eat.
The only (very minor) criticism we had of the hotel was that the only mirror was in the bathroom with no nearby socket.
