Lovely hotel - excellent food and very comfortable rooms.

Hotel fabulous to return to after a day on the slopes - spa and sauna luxurious. Food excellent, good variety. Parking very... More

3rd year staying at this lovely hotel. The stuff are lovely and were very accommodating towards our 15 month old daughter. The pine trees and sound of the river make for a deep nights sleep. Food is well prepared and very nutritious. Spa area is a treat too. See you next year.

The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the ski lifts, scenery was beautiful, our room was situated with the balcony facing the mountains and stream. There were very few shops around and not many were open. The female manager was very accommodating and helpful and would go out of her way to ensure the stay was pleasant. The rooms... More

Room was clean, service was ok. The hotel was fair at 3*, certainly not more. Decore was dated but relatively clean... The spa was good but tiny for the number of rooms and is only open a couple of hours a day, a problem if you go down and its full already! The food is ok, the half board is... More

Nice hotel for the price. Most of the staff tried very hard to please. Yet, went to go to dinner in their restaurant and asked for a seating for three. We could see there were tables for 2 and one for 5 and two tables pushed together for eight that were free with no one else waiting. But, they told... More

OK, so the selection of hotels in Brides-les-Bains isn't huge and most are focused on the winter ski market or the therapeutic benefits of "taking the waters", but Brides is not Bath. Still, the Alps are lovely in the summertime! This hotel is, IMHO, on a par with a good mid-range B&B in the UK. The rooms were clean and... More

Normally a hotel of this standard would not rate 5 stars, but everybody at the hotel really cared. The receptionist was brilliant and went out of her way to make me welcome.
