Marie Blanche
Ranked #22 of 33 Hotels in Meribel
Reviewed 19 March 2009

The Marie Blanche is an excellent small hotel near the piste in Meribel. Rooms are large and comfortable, with views of the mountains. The food in the hotel is excellent, with a 5 course table d'hote dinner served every evening. The clientèle are mainly a mix of British and French guests when we stayed at the hotel.

This Hotel is in a good location with good views from the rooms. The food was very good but the staff tended to forget you where there when they had non resident in for the ala carte menu and the service slipped. The Staff where very unwelcoming on arrival and this tended to be the attitude of most of the staff on reception all WEEK. The bar was very very expensive and had the atmosphere of a libary!! so if you stay here and fancy a drink after sking go down the road. I have been to Meribel 4 times and know of hotels that are just as nice but the staff are much more helpful and welcoming so i will not be re-visiting the Marir Blanche in a hurry.

As a regular skiing family all over Europe plus 3 previous visits to Meribel in addition to spending in excess of 120 nights per year business & pleasure in mid / upper hotels I believe I’m in a good position to provide an objective assessment of the Marie Blanche, Meribel, France.
Trip date early March 2007

Pros: Very well positioned with access to the slopes approx 70 yards. Very clean with our room having very good views of the valley as far as Mottaret. Lockable and heated boot / ski lockers.
All public areas and rooms very clean and well appointed with fresh flowers and other nice touches including dressing gowns and slippers provided.

Cons: Parking adjacent the road with a very good chance of you car being damaged by pedestrians carrying ski & equipment to the slopes, not a problem if you don’t drive!
Attitude of the desk staff is at best indifferent and at worst rude, with guests seeming to be treated as an inconvenience.
Ski / boot changing room very small, if 2 people are in there you will have to wait or change outside.
Bar area well decorated cosy with good views, however the drinks in are prohibitively expensive. ( my sons are of the opinion it resembled an “old peoples” home!!)
The restaurant provided very good food however if you are on half- board basis be prepared to be treated as a second class! It’s awful. Despite spending two or three thousand Euros for your weeks half board, in the restaurant you will be moved, squeezed in, put on the raised area, or anywhere to accommodate non resident diners, a very unpleasant experience.

Q: would we stay at the Marie Blanche again? Absolutely not!
Q: would you recommend a friend to stay at the Marie Blanche? No there are other establishments of a similar quality in the areaa where you will be made to feel like a guest and not an inconvenience.
