5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

We moved to this hotel after a bad experience at the Croix de Savoie, the contrast could not have been greater. The staff were charming and helpful, the rooms were simply but cleverly furnished, the sitting room was a very welcoming area to relax in before and after dinner.

Our evening meals were very good, although a little light on vegetables and fruit, but that is common in France. The breakfast wad very good, with a wide range on offer and plenty of fresh fruit.

We would certainly use this hotel again for another short ski trip to Les Carroz.

I spent 3 nights at the milk hotel. Christophe and his team were so helpful and the hotel not only in an amazing location but the rooms and ambience to a great standard.
Certainly recommended for keen skiers, perhaps be aware it's at the top of a hill if you want to walk into town!

Another perfect 4 days without the kids in the Grand Massif with Cristophe and the team. Very relaxed with a great ambience (welcoming bar, roaring fires, fur rugs!) On half board and the food was great again with the most wonderful view from the breakfast room. Truly ski-in, ski-out being right on the piste down to the tele cabin - the last run home would be testing for a beginner being a fairly steep red, but its well pisted as its the village slalom arena (they had town races there on saturday night which was great to watch from the bar!) Almost reluctant to post this glowing review as I want to make sure I get a room again next year again!!

Room Tip: Go on the side away from the bar (especially on the floor directly above) as its quieter and whilst...

After reading the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor I booked 4 nights half-board and was very satisfied with the hotel especially the service, rooms and great ski-in/ski-out location. As recommended by other reviewers I asked the hotel to arrange the airport transfer and ski hire. This worked out very well and we were skiing within three hours after landing at Geneva. A real bonus was being able to leave the hire skis at the hotel on our final day allowing us to ski right up to the last moment. I can also report that the ski and boot room is now equipped with state of the art ski storage and boot warmer. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Being a pescatarian (vegetarian who enjoys fish and seafood) can be tricky but I warned the hotel in advance and they were happy to adapt the fixed evening menu to suit my requirement, the waiter even checked each evening that I was happy with what they proposed to cook for me. The skiing in this area is superb. There is something for everyone, well prepared pistes, no queues, beautiful scenery and plenty of good mountain restaurants. I would have no hesitation to recommend this hotel and ski area.

I have been going to Les Carroz for a number of years for short Ski breaks. Transfer from Geneva airport is just an hour. I stayed at this Hotel when it was called the Bois de la Char and it was not what you would call classy. It has been transformed into a truly excellent establishment.The rooms are newly modernised and very comfortable; the food is very good; It retains its ski in ski out status; the one thing that remains are the friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended.

We have just come back from a great weekend staying at the Milk Hotel. The hotel rooms are very clean and comfortable. The bar area is very relaxing with the roaring log burning stove. Our stay included Dinner B&B. The food was very good. We had a great choice of of pastries, home made jams, cereals and breads for breakfast and evening meals were very tasty traditional food. There was a short 5-10mins walk into town in the evening. The location of the hotel ski in ski out is perfect.
The staff at the hotel were very accomodating and the service was excellent.
We didn't book our transfers through the hotel but would recommend doing that for convenience, we will be doing that next time week go.
We would thoroughly recommend it and will most probably be going back next week year.

This was my second visit to the hotel, we booked a mid-week 4 night break.

The hotel is simple, rustic, understated and really charming. Christophe and his team were very friendly and attentive, and the location, well it just couldn't be better.

The room was charmingly simple, spacious, warm with a cosy and comfortable bed, and lovely cotton sheets and soft pillows.

I had a double room on single occupancy, and although a small additional charge was made, it was surprisingly reasonable.

A great little hotel, that doesn't break the budget.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome to the Milkhotel, a hotel and restaurant at the foot of the slopes of Les Carroz. The idea of creating something different, less hectic and more responsible, and the quest for quality, simplicity and the satisfaction of your expectations and those of your children has today given birth to the MILKHOTEL. The new, resolutely contemporary setting has still kept the atmosphere and warmth of a mountain chalet. And it's just like being in a true chalet: on the slopes, at the foot of the slopes, skis on the feet, ski in ski out... all that you could possibly want from a ski resort. In the heart of an extraordinary ski area, you and your children are just a hop and a skip away from the world of mountains and skiing. ... more   less
