I stayed here for two nights in February 2016 and found the hotel comfortable, exceptionally clean, welcoming (loved all the candles, fire and cosines) and convenient. Set back from the road and only a 2 minute drive to the gondola and town it was in a good location. The staff are what made this stay so positive and memorable, the...

Thank you Alke for a wonderful stay. I very much enjoyed the stay, the spotless rooms, the charm of the hotel and your generous, warm welcome. Situated in a dead end street, the quiet location near the slopes is perfect, and so is everything else in the hotel. We'll be back!

Add to this a very helpful owner and you have everything you need for a great ski holiday base. The owner arranged our airport transfer, ski pass and local bus ticket to make our life really easy. The surrounding village...

This hotel is situated a little outside the main village and is peaceful and attractive. There are pleasant public seating areas in which to relax and a comfortable garden when the weather is good. My room had nice views, was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. The hotel has a sauna, a small bar and free internet. What really impressed me...

A small group of us stay here every year to ski. Alke and his staff go a long way to making our stay enjoyable and easy. The rooms are simple Savoie style and clean. Breakfasts are great - evening meals more so. The hotel chef always rustles up a surprise for what is an excellent price. There's not much better...

We were greeted by the chef as the owner Alke was out. Very welcoming and helpful. Ran us down to the village to collect our skis and explained how to arrange dinner etc. The twin room was clean and comfortable with great views but the walls were a little thin meaning that we were awake when next door were.

I never before wrote a review, but this place is so terrible, that I feel badly the urge this time. We stayed here with a group. The owner does'nt know anything about hospitality or hotelerie. Most of our groupmembers had a reasonable room, but ours was awful. We had no balcony, the bathroom had never been renovated since 1960. It...

We had a very warm welcome and a full tour of the hotel. I guess it can be described as a budget hotel but the food was super and the staff friendly. Twin rooms are compact but clean and great views. Great spaces to relax in and staff very accommodating. The food is very 'master chef' which we enjoy but...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The hotel is a perfect base for winter sports enthusiasts. Whether you’re into skiing, snowboarding, hiking or cross country skiing in the world famous ski area Les Portes du Soleil. IN summer about 650 km of hiking trails await here for you. High peaks, lovely valleys and breathtaking meadows where the Abondance cows stroll with large bells around their necks. Everything is possible here. For the `less sportive´ guests, Esprit Montagne hotel is also a great place to stay. In the Vallée d'Abondance, "the Valley of Abundance", you can enjoy the French gastronomy, AOC cheeses and the pearls of the Alps: its wines. Ancient abbeys, churches and museums in the Valley reveal their secrets, and then the medieval castles and villages on Lake Geneva allow you a very different view of the surroundings. ... more   less
