Nice hotel on slopesPosted Mar 9, 2016
The hotel is great. The location is on the a slope but quite a remote one so you need to get a lift to go up to come down to it. I did have visions of it being at the bottom of the main slopes to ski in. You also need to get the free shuttle to get to and from the main resort area which we didnt appreciate.

Fantastic ski in/out hotel, views and facilitiesPosted Apr 21, 2015 on Hotels
We have just returned from a late season ski break in this hotel and can honestly say that this is the best self catering ski accommodation we have ever stayed in (have been going for 25 years!). The reception service was fantastic, we were able to check in early and leave slightly late, and were given the room we requested. The room was excellent with all the facilities and plenty of storage, everything was clean and in working order with a proper kettle and even a toaster! Good ski storage and incredibly pistes maintained for ski in/out, even the last week of the season. Very nice spa/pool facilities and incredible views. Ski bus during the day and minibus on demand at night, although it is an easy 10 minute walk to Foret. You do need to be organised with your groceries though, the Spar does deliver but the better supermarket is Sherpa down in Flaine Forum which means getting the bus and funicular or skiing with your baguette on your back!! Ditto ski equipment hire, needs a bit of planning if the Foret shops are closed from 12-4....which they were when we arrived.

Good quality appartments genuine ski in and outPosted Mar 23, 2015
Pros: free taxi service modern rooms grocery deliveries good reception staff
Cons: storage wifi
Location: you need to walk or bus into Foret, it's not a resort with bags to do, the skiing is the best part about Flaine
Overall I thought this apartment was very good, the facilities are good with a pool, jacuzzi and steam room, the reception staff were helpful and no hiccups. We got a room for 6 when there was 4 of us because we wanted 2 bedrooms and we knew the 1 bed version would be too small. We were right because although the apartment was modern and the bathrooms were very nice, it was a bit tight, in particular storage is very limited. The kitchenette had all the basics, although considering there could have been 6 of us there wasn't a casserole dish big enough to make a meal for 6 but this was just small touches that could be improved. As also mentioned several times wifi is a challenge, our codes never worked and quality is poor. I don't know why hotels that are "premium" or 4/5 star don't include wifi as a basic decent service. Beds were made on arrival, cleaning is included apart from the kitchen, The free taxi service into town in the evening is a lovely touch. The extras are expensive and not worth it such as 25 euros for some logs to burn, the car park is also very expensive. I used the service for getting groceries delivered on the arrival day which was brilliant. I didn't use ski set for delivery of ski hire since they were 100 euros more than sport 2000 so watch out. Finally, the hotel isn't in any of the centres but is walkable (10 mins) to Foret and putting your skis on to ski into the nearest lifts is really easy and a lovely comfort.

Quality ExperiencePosted Mar 17, 2015 on Hotels
The hotel fully satisfied our needs. No silly charges for items like the use of the electronic safe, slippers and bathrobes supplied, even cleaning kit and dishwasher tablets all f.o.c. Staff friendly and available. Good location. Overall excellent

8 person apartment with beautiful mountain viewsPosted Mar 9, 2015
Pros: Quallity of room, views, sauna and steam rooms very good. Hotel taxi service VERY good. Good ski shop close by. Easy to ski into (early March).
Cons: Boot room is cramped - locker doors completely block passage ways. Swimming pool (open air) bit cool, jacuzzi popular with very young children.
Location: Go out the boot room up the slope 100 metres to sister Helios hotel. Spar shop (like a medium Coop), next to it is Skishop Helios. Great equipment.
Great well equipped room with fab views (ask for south facing high room). We arrived at 5pm and the room was ready. Hotel lifts efficient. Free Ski bus stops outside. Hotel taxis give free transport round the resort at night. THEY ARE REALLY GOOD. We used them all the time including to get to bigger supermarkets and restaurants. They always picked up within 5 minutes. Fresh bread 8 am from reception is useful ! Good restaurant on site if you want we enjoyed it one evening. Pool table/bar area too. Easy to ski back to Hotel, skiing out down to resort had 200 yards of flatter run to negotiate. Because you need to take a lift up to come down to the resort make sure you have your lift pass before starting, I believe the hotel can buy lift passes for you but we bought them online and had them posted in 4 days ! Convenient very good new skishop and small supermarket at next door Helios, level - 2 in lift 100 yards away see below. Supermarket sells a reasonable range of fruit/salad/some frozen stuff/dairy/drink etc. Ski school representitives were on site to book lessons Sat PM.

Séjour au skiPosted Feb 16, 2015 on Hotels
Notre séjour c'est bien passé, personnel agréable, résidence au calme,appartement propre, accès et retour skis aux pieds. Le domaine est très bien pour une semaine. En revanche le canapé qui grince, c'est pas terrible pour dormir, et l'absence de contrôle pour l'accès au jacuzzi (interdit -16 ans)avec les enfants qui sautent dedans c'est insupportable.

для тех, кто катается на лыжахPosted Jan 12, 2015 on Hotels
Отель удобно расположен: на лыжах выезжаешь и возвращаешься. До центра посёлка 5 мин. пешком. Кроме того общественный автобус с 8:30 до 18:30 и микроавтобусы из отеля с 18:00 до 23. Номера приличные, несколько маловаты, но в четырёхместном номере, вдвоём комфортно. Кто не может без TV, для тех телевизор в гостиной и в спальне, штук 5 русских каналов. Регистрация при заезде очень затруднена. Огромные очереди. Сотрудники работают вежливо и внимательно, но чрезвычайно медленно. Регистрация выезда, тоже очереди и та же проблема. Wi-Fi в номерах есть, но три дня администрация не могла обеспечит соединение из-за несоответствия имени проживающего и номера комнаты. Бассейн и сауна - на такой большой отель крайне маленькие сауна, хаммам, бассейн и джакузи. В общем иммитация наличия. В номере камин, дрова можно купить только в посёлке, отель не предлагает. Чистота в номерах - условная. Где видно - чисто. Под мебелью не убирали никогда. В коридочике между гостиной и спальней, на потолке паутина, как в фильмах ужасов.

Great Ski StayPosted Jan 4, 2015
Pros: Option to purchase fresh bread each morning. Very comfortable apartments. Leisure facilities to relax those tired muscles.
Cons: Although we had children with us I do not thing it is right that children should be allowed to use the jacuzzi as a swimming pool.
Location: Ski in and out.
We stayed over New Year and were very lucky with the snow so the runs and lifts in and out of the hotel were running the whole week. The staff were excellent and so helpful, however, they do not/cannot do anything about unoccupied children in the stream-room and jacuzzi who were very annoying. Apartments are very comfortable and have all the facilities that are needed.
