Nice hotel next to the ski lift
Recently renovated, chalet- style hotel, very nice sitting area with a fireplace. The room was clean and comfortable with nice views over the mountains. The hotel is above the village, 5 minutes walk to the ski lift so no need to get on the shuttle bus. Unfotunately Cordon does not have good links to Geneva airport, a train journey from Salanches takes over 2 hrs and involves 1 change. There is an infrequent bus from Salanches too but we have not tried it. The easiest option is private transfer, it cost us 100 Euros one way.
Pros: Close to the ski lift, friendly and helpful staff; the restaurant serves tasty French food which is served very nicely.
Cons: Staff should speak better English; they should add tea and coffee facilities to the rooms.
Location: The village is 30 minutes walk downhill, half of the route is not lit at night. There 2 bars in the village, a pizzeria, 2 grocery stores.
