“Ideal”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

Just spent a very nice week here with my wife. The rooms were basic but clean and tidy, all you need for a base for your weeks skiing.

The hotel is a very short walk away from the bus stops so ideal for getting to the lifts.

The staff were all, without exception, both friendly and helpful throughout our stay.

We opted for half board and were very pleased we did as the food is top, top quality. Thanks Rob.

We shall definitely stay here again when next in Chatel.

All in all, a great week.

5 days away with 3 uni mates. Le Renard turned out to be the a hiden gem of the holiday. super friendly staff who made us feel at home. fantastic food in the evening, dont even bother looking for somewhere else to eat. THIS IS THE PLACE!!!

Rooms are basic but clean and functional, perfect for a ski holiday.

short walk to one of the main lifts and a few steps to the closest bus stop which takes you anywhere in Chatel.

Went to Chatel with a neighbour and my brother skiing last week. We went back after last years visit and we were not disappointed. We were in the main hotel this time rooms lovely simple rooms with ensuit and nice beds.
The food here is outstanding by any measure, portions are generous too.
As for the company Rob and his team are brilliant
I am hoping we get back there next year!!!

It’s over 12 years since I first discovered this gem - I returned this year for a weekend stay and was not disappointed. Le Renard is a hotel with a great chalet ambiance, so you really feel you’re in the mountains. Comfortable rooms, excellent food and a fantastic friendly team – 2 days was not enough – à la prochaine

Thaks for a great stay to Rob and his team, and of course Shadow.

Once again the food and atmosphere were excellent for my stay from Jan8th till 20th January, and hopefully will see you all again in March.

PS, big thanks for arranging the cloudless skies for practically the whole trip.

Cheers

This was the 4th year that i have stayed at the Renard over the New Years and have to say as always had a great time. This is mainly due to the warm, friendly and very welcoming staff. The great location (only 5mins walk to Le Linga), hot tub and absolutely amazing food is the reasons i go back.
The rooms are all of a similar size have plenty of space and nice clean bathrooms which have never run out of hot water unlike some ski resorts which i have stayed at. The bar area is great of for a apres ski beer and downstairs has 2 tis with all the entertainment you could need (sky,dvd,Wii,etc).
Thanks for another amazing holiday.

Many thanks Rob for a great stay. We stayed with our 2 families with 8 teenage kids and everyone had a ball. The food was excellent and your half-board deal including wine was brilliant value. The kids particularly enjoyed the room service hot chocolates to the hot tub. The bumper snow was a bonus. I'm still not sure how you organised that! Also thanks for your great recommendations for transfers and ski lessons. Regards to all your lovely staff.
Hope to see you again next year!
