Reviewed 1 February 2009

We returned to Le Hotel Sporting for the second year running. Drawn to this family run hotel and country charm deco, it excelled our expectations on both visits. All staff were refreshingly helpful. The recent refurbishment now provides you with a snug room to relax. Complements to the chef we have had excellent food every time, however portions could be reduced some! Waitress Janine was delightful - a real credit to the establishment. Excellent location for skiing Morzine, le Gets or Avoriaz and great view from most of the rooms. We strongly recommend a visit here and its price can't be beaten!

We booked our stay directly with the hotel and think it was good value. They were well organised and all the staff were really friendly and helpful. (They very kindly allowed us to keep one room to share for an afternoon checkout without charge). The bar / lounge area is now very modern with leather and wood decor with a screen showing ski clips and a pool table. The bedrooms were spacious, warm and quiet. The bathrooms are typically french with small baths and a hand shower but they are spotless with lots of hot water and fresh towels everyday. The 5 course evening meal was fabulous- keeping us full till the next evening! The location was good as its easy to get around morzine on the free train or catching a bus or a short stroll.
We had a perfect holiday in a hotel which we found relaxed and friendly!

We spent a week skiing with 3 children, 8,13 and 16, in early Jan. The hotel is at the top end of Morzine next to the slopes but a good 500m or 5/6 min walk to the Pleney lift. There is a good bus service right outside to save the walk and it is possible via a short drag lift to ski within 100m. The hotel is small and cosy, the staff v.helpful and friendly. We found the rooms clean and comfortable. Facilities wise, there's a pool, sauna, small gym and a pool table plus a bar. We found the hotel drinks prices very expensive so didn't use it much. 2 coffees and 2 hot chocolates were 15euros and beer 6euros a pint. This was a shame as it' s quite comfortable. The lounge has been described as like an old folks home so must have been revamped recently as we found it contemporary with leather and wood with a big flat screen TV. The food was good with a few exceptions with not much for fussy children, they will do other things on request but it's limited.
Morzine is a big town for a ski resort with plenty of shops and bars but in my opinion not well laid out, so be careful where you stay. Skiing wise, the Les Gets side offers the best slopes and for families may be a better location to stay. We usually stay in the Three Valleys/ Val d'Isere etc. but overall we liked Morzine, and it seemed quiet but I suspect it'll get crammed in peak season. If/when we go back to Morzine we'd be happy to stay at the Sporting, but I think they need to look a drink prices.
Other guests in the hotel regularly skied in Avoriaz and found the hotel location ok. We stuck to a local area pass as we had to be back to collect children from ski school and there was plenty of skiing. If you think you might want a day in Avoriaz then buy the full Portes du Soliel lift pass - there is no upgrade/extension option.

Stayed at the Sporting hotel for 6 nights in early January 2009.

Overall the hotel is good value for money, with the rooms being of an adequate size, clean and warm. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners upon arrival who helped us sort out ski passes etc.

The staff were all friendly and accomodating and the evening food was excellent - all 5 courses. Our waiter during our stay (Kareem?) provided us with great service and recommendations.

The hotel is only a short walk from the the Pleney ski lift (approx. 300m) but for those who struggle with their skies there's a bus stop just outside the hotel.

We had an excellent stay and would definately return to this hotel again.

I booked this hotel for a party of 4 adults and 3 teenagers after my brother-in-law stayed there and highly recommended it. My sister regularly skis in Morzine/Avoriaz and fully recommended the area,although they stay in an appartment.
We had been used to staying in the Sport Village Hotel in Soldeu,Andorra (see my review) so a small hotel was a big difference.The hotel is situated away from the main town, but it is an easy flat walk. The bus stops outside if you don't want to walk. We left our skis etc in a local hire shop near the Pleney lift, so could enjoy the apres ski bars before walking back to the hotel.
On entering the hotel there is a pool table on the left, a small but cosy bar area and reception desk. We found the staff to be very friendly and courteous. If the bar was unmanned (as before mentioned) we just helped ourselves!! My son was rather shocked at the size of the hotel at first as he was used to the Sport Village, but after a few days he said he really liked it " because everyone talks to each other".I think that sums it up very well.
He loved the pool (only him using it! ) and dashed off to swim after dinner. We could see him in the pool through the dining room windows.It is quite small, half inside, half out, with some chairs and tables overlooking the inside.You swim under the partition to the outside.
Breakfast was adequate but only cold cereals, meats, cheese, yoghurt, etc. We missed our usual cooked breakfast to start the day.The evening meal is a set menu and very good, with waiter service. They will offer to cook you something else if necessary.My son does not eat fish, so they cooked him an omelette and chips instead.
The rooms are all different, in traditional style.We had a double and single bed, a little cramped, but a lovely big balcony at the front of the hotel towards the resort. There are mountains all around, so I think everyone would have a mountain view. The bathroom was quite small with sink, bath and shower attachment to taps. No shower screen or curtains, so you need to shower holding the hose.Not ideal but not really a problem for a week. There was a separate toilet ,as we entered our room.
The hotel lounge was rather dreary,and reminded me of an old peoples' home! This may have been redecorated by now,as it badly needed updating.
We enjoyed the skiing in Morzine and Les Gets, and caught the land train that takes you to the lift to Avoriaz, which is a higher altitude.You can ski into switzerland from here if the weather is clear.There are plenty of mountain restaurants and bars in all areas.There was a torchlight descent one evening,with a floodlit display of freestyle ski jumping, and floodlit skiing was available some nights.
If we return to Morzine, I would be happy to stay in this hotel again.

The Sporting Hotel is a lovely small/medium sized hotel stayed in as part of a ski-ing holiday. The rooms are clean and the beds very comfortable (if you like a firmer matress). The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and do all they can to make your stay enjoyable. Being a vegetarian I didn't have great hopes for the food but the chef made wonderful dishes and my meat eating friends were equally satisfied. Leave room for dessert is my advice, I've never tasted any better!

I couldn't find any fault and if you're looking for a friendly, family run hotel in an excellent location in Morzine then you can't go wrong with the Sporting.

We stayed at the Hotel Sporting as part of a package Snowboarding trip (First Choice)....

The Hotel is a small to medium sized affair with, I guess, around 20 rooms. It's decorated in a traditional style with much wood in evidence, and the bedrooms (at least the ones I saw) all have slightly different colour schemes and more spacious than many resort Hotels I've stayed in.

There is a comforable reception area with seating, tables and a pool table, past the reception is a small bar (that closes at 23:30) and then a TV room with more comfortable seating.

Breakfast and the set dinner (winter) are served in a large dining room just off the reception area - the evening meals were impressive and varied, nothing failed to hit the mark.

Staff are friendly and helpful, speaking good English for those (like myself) who only speak a little French!

The only downside is the price of drinks in the bar, and the prohibition on taking any drinks/snacks brought outside the hotel into your room (they will charge you a cover fee if they find them!)
