“Great summer season staff from Alpine Elements.”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

Situation : 6-7 minute walk to the Olympic sized outdoor pool and a further 5 mins to the town centre, with its abundance of restaurants, bars and shops.

Staff : a credit to this small hotel. The young, enthusiastic team went out of their way to make our stay a fun one. Special thanks to the barman who helped me rummage through the bins in search of my parking ticket for John Lennon airport!

Rooms: small and basic but clean and functional. Ours had a balcony with lovely views from the hotel front and a window to the side, overlooking the bar patio. The noise from both wouldn't be an issue for winter visitors, however on a balmy July evening, you may want to complement the open windows with a good set of earplugs.

Food : our package included and buffet breakfast in the morning with a choice of daily special hot dish (e.g. pancakes, sausage and egg, omelette ) and a 3 course evening meal. Food was delicious with special dietary requirements catered for.

Amenities: the bar/lobby area is fairly small but recently decorated in a clean, modern style. A separate TV/ games room provides a great place for the kids to hang out, leaving the adults free to enjoy the bar area for quiz (including a music round by the very talented, guitar playing chef) night, wine-tasting and general après-ski/MB/shopping/walking relaxation.

Well placed for the Super Morzine lift, if a little far out for the rest of Morzine. Great place though, modern if basic (you're going skiing or activities, you don't need more). Food filling and enjoyable. Bar a little pricy.

Last minute booking with Alpine Elements at the Ridge. Modern, clean, efficiently run, great home cooked food, pleasant staff.
Plenty to do in the resort either off your own back or joining in with organised trips ( if you have the dosh for that !) Great mix of guests

Just returned from a week at the Ridge Hotel. We had two twin rooms, as we were travelling with our 16yr and 11yr old children, and both rooms were very clean and comfortable with the bonus of been connected by the balcony which also had fantastic views. The food was lovely and we especially enjoyed the cakes provided for afternoon tea. We booked through Alpine Elements which included the bike hire and the white water rafting, this was very well organised and again staff very helpful with lots of advice on walks and bike trails. The hotel is located on the very edge of Morzine but not really an issue as it was a nice walk and took only 10/15 minutes to reach the centre.

We had a lovely holiday and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel

Really enjoyed our holiday with alpine elements. Thanx to all the staff for looking after us.. And the bike guys, regarding the bikes we had use of.
Really hope we can book a ski holiday over new year for our family and friends.

hi every one if you are looking to go on holliday to the alps defenetly stay at the ridge hotel by alpine elements the staff are extremely friendly. big thanks to Ashley, Leon, Stefan and Charlotte. the hotel was clean and tidy the staff treated you like human beings not like a robot. stayed in hotels where the staff answer like a computer but the staff treat you like a friend. the bike mechanic stefan is a fantastic mechanic fixed my bike meany times and understand that you want to be on the trails as fast as possible. the bar staff ashley and leon are grate bar men if you go there and Ashley is on the bar it is definitely worth asking for bialys milk shake. i will definitely go agen soon not like last time where i said ill go agin soon and it was 3 years later this time ill go next year.

Our second time at The Ridge. First time was great, this time everything was just that little bit better.
All the staff were friendly, yet still professional and nothing was too much trouble.
On two occasions we did have noisy neighbours on our floor coming in early hours drunk but that was not really the fault of the hotel and they were warned about their behaviour!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Hotel enjoys superb mountain views and a fantastic location on the 'Sunny Side' of resort at the Morzine / Montriond border. It is close to the Super Morzine Gondola, and a 5-7 min walk to the suspension bridge which accesses the bars, shops and Gondola.We run private minibuses to shuttle you to and from the slopes during the day if you prefer not to walk. They are especially good for those that want to ski the Pleney slopes at the other end of town, but not so necessary for those that want to ski Super Morzine and the main Portes du Soleil area.The Ridge enjoys fantastic panoramic views looking out over the whole of Morzine and up into the mountains. The hotel has 30 ensuite bedrooms and a lovely modern, contemporary design with a rather chic looking bar and restaurant. There is a large sun terrace offering the same wonderful views of Morzine. ... more   less
