“Nicest hotel staff I have ever come across, lovely people!”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

We stayed for a week during Feb 2014 and were delighted with the location, the food and the hotel. However, their biggest asset is their staff - a great bunch of people. I don't think I have ever come across a nicer bunch of hotel staff. Charlie the manager can be very proud of them.

A very difficult situation arose during our stay there and they coped with it admirably.

WiFi's a bit weedy.

Very friendly, helpful staff, very good food, comfortable lounge area (one section with big TV for sport) and convivial bar, and great location, just across road from the piste and only a short distance from central Mottaret. Ski rental next door also very helpful. I would certainly go there again. Only moderate criticism is that the owner company needs to invest a little more in the bedrooms, particularly maintenance, eg very poor tv in room, had to request a plug for the bath, a small wall radiator did not work (although they had provided a freestanding one etc). (But other parts of the hotel have been refurbished not so long ago).
But no major issues and overall a very friendly, comfortable, ski hotel (and not too big) with great staff-to whom many thanks.

Room Tip: End of corridor rooms likely to be quieter

I had 3 days of sun , snow and great service at the Mott. We found the location perfect for skiing and the lunches were exceptional value. The staff were very helpful and the bar and restaurant excellent. Great value - will return.

I would highly recommend this hotel. It was fantastic in every way. We had the all inclusive option which gave us 3 hot meals a day, croissants/cakes and hot drinks whenever we wanted and a large range of free alcohol till 10pm. The food was always delicious and if you are planning to head out of the valley they had everything available at breakfast to make a picnic (they even give you a bag to take it in). The staff were brilliant, they could not have done more for us, anything we requested was done with smiles and no hesitation. We had 2 vegetarians in our group and the vegetarian selection was poor so the chef kindly cooked them something special everyday. We thought that was going above and beyond, in no way was it expected. The rooms are nice, the outdoor jacuzzi was a lovely way to end a hard days skiing and you can practically ski right out of the front door. The only 2 issues were no English tv in the rooms (I would at least expect bbc world) however they had a large tv in the lounge which always showed sport or news, and the wireless connection was poor. However I am seriously clutching at straws here because they were very minor problems. I would go again in a shot.

I have just returned from a week at the Hotel Le Mottaret and I wish I was still there! My husband and I went with Ski France, and had all-inclusive board. The location is great, not quite directly on the piste, but you only need to cross one small road before you can put your skis on and head straight down an easy blue run to the main ski lifts. The staff were amazing - really helpful, all issues were resolved really quickly, and the whole attitude of the hotel was really relaxed and friendly.

The food was superb - a good selection of breakfast pastries, cereals and hot options, as well as baguettes and cold meats and cheeses and fruit, which you could make a packed lunch from if desired (with paper bags provided for this purpose). At lunch time the hotel had a BBQ on its terrace. All-inc guests could choose from soup or salad to start, then either burger, sausages, kebabs or steak plus chips or jacket potato (as well as bread and salad). The steaks were so amazing, and cooked perfectly to order, that we couldn't bring ourselves to choose anything else! There was also the option to get a lunch voucher for five other restaurants at various locations across the three valleys. We visited two of these and were really impressed with the offering at both. Dinner at the hotel was also fabulous - the usual selection of salads, cold meats and soup as starters, then hot starters/accompaniments, and at least three different main dish options. I generally had a bit of nearly everything each night, and generally found all to be very tasty. The cheese and chutneys were particularly excellent, and there were always at least two desserts on offer each night. I was expecting that I would want to eat out at least one night, for a change of scenery, but we didn't as we would have felt we were missing out on the hotel dinner! The last night was a Savoyarde special, so cheese fondue and tartiflette was on offer.

Tea, coffee and hot chocolate is freely available at all times, and during the late afternoon period there are fresh cakes, and later on, bar snacks. The selection of drinks included for all-inc guests was good, the house red was perfectly drinkable and we found the house scotch to also go down very well.

The hot tub is a great feature, particularly as you can take drinks out with you. Bathrobes and towels are provided for getting to it, and it was lovely and hot so that you could build up a good inner warmth to brave the dash back inside.

The only reason I haven't given a full five stars is that the hotel is still undergoing renovations, and so some aspects aren't yet great. In particular the room bathrooms are dated and in need of replacement, but having said that they were still clean and functional, and I have experienced considerably worse in other 3 star skiing hotels.

All in all a fantastic experience, and we would return in a heartbeat. Thanks to all at the Hotel Le Mottaret for a great week.

Room Tip: Room no. 5 is just down the corridor from the bar - no steps and very handy! Surprisingly not too no...

Hotel is next to a piste, you can virtually ski to the front door. Staff friendly, food great and included vouchers for lunch at other restaurants in the four valleys. Bar and lounge areas were smart and comfortable, with open fire and sky tv. All inclusive included beers and spirits. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Had a fantastic time, hope to go back next year.

Location: It was just a skip and a hop and we were on the nursery slope which was the perfect start. We then found ourselves right in the Centre. There was the magic carpet (under cover ) which took you either to the top of the nursery slope again or back to the hotel.

Food: Excellent and plenty of it as was the beer (Peroni or Grolsh), others were available but they did not fall into the all inclusive bracket! I guess the only gripe was that although they had the normal spirits (Vodka, whiskey etc) there was no Brandy available!
.
Staff : I can not praise their enthusiasm enough, nothing seemed to much trouble and every member of staff were extremely friendly. A credit to the hotel in every-way.

All in all very good value for money, and will be booking again.
