We have been to Flaine twice before once in a chalet and once at the Flaine apartments, both were self catering. We had never thought of going on an all inclusive ski holiday before so thought that we would give it a go.
The hotel is basic and the rooms are small with basic furnishings but comfortable enough. We arrived on resort mid morning however we were advised by reception that we couldn’t check in till 5pm and lunch was not provided on check in day only evening meal. There was an area to leave luggage safely so we were able to go for something to eat locally and get our ski equipment arranged. The ski hire shop is directly beside the hotel and even though the staff did not speak very good English everything went to plan and was of a good standard. There is free wifi in the bar area which has a nice open fire, the bar is a no cash bar, you are issued with a card at check in and this is paid at the end of your stay, the prices were very reasonable too. We didn’t go to any of the entertainment, it was aimed at the French guests. The food was good, breakfast was continental but there was plenty of it, lunch was a hot buffet there was usually two or three choices or packed lunch, evening meals are themed and were very nice and an added bonus is the free wine with lunch and diner on a help yourself basis just keep filling up your carafe . The dining room is quite small and sometimes we had to wait a few minutes to be seated but it was quite well organised and we were not kept waiting for long. We found the staff to be very nice and helpful. My husband a small accident on the slopes the staff at reception were very helpful and told us about the medical centre not far from the hotel.
There were a few leaks in the roof with buckets underneath during our stay and the hotel catered more for French guests but it didn’t affect our holiday. We would definitely return to Flaine and would be happy to stay in the Village Club again.
