Apart from the location being fine (you just had to walk down to the slopes), everything else was awful, absolutely terrible. The food was disgusting. We booked the hotel thinking we’d be on our own and hadn’t realized we had to mix and match with other guests at dinner times. It wasn’t a problem for me as m... + more

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Hotel Les Cimes description

Sleeps: 66-87 Guests

Chalet Hotel Les Cimes was a firm favourite with our guests during its first winter season receiving rave reviews. Offering high altitude skiing and sunny slopes, Alpe d’Huez is a popular resort for keen skiers.

Les Cimes is a comfortable hotel and all bedrooms have been recently refurbished. It has a sunny, south-facing position, close to the ski lifts and with fantastic views of the surrounding mountains especially from the sun terrace and the balconies.

The hotel’s attractive dining room also has lovely views of the Oisans valley and a convivial atmosphere, perfect for enjoying our choice of menus and of course the complimentary wines. There is also a bar and cosy lounge with fireplace and it is here where pre-dinner canapés and apéritifs are served. You can also relax here after dinner with coffee and maybe a nightcap.

The centre of the resort is just 5 minutes’ walk away including a selection of après-ski bars and restaurants. You will also find here the resort indoor/outdoor swimming pool and ice rink, entry to which is included with the lift pass.
The bedrooms all have en suite facilities and many have a south-facing balcony. They are all well equipped and all have flat screen TV, safe and hairdryer.

The nearest ski lift is the Grand Sure chairlift which goes direct to the Signal and this is just a minute’s walk away. You can also ski back to this point at the end of the day.

With a transfer time of around 2 hours, Alpe d’Huez is very accessible from Grenoble airport. Established in 1936, it was the first resort in France to be installed with a fully operational ski lift. The resort lies in the Grandes Rousses Massif domain and it is partnered by the smaller mountain villages of Auris-en-Oisans, Villard Reculas, Oz-en-Oisans, Vaujany and La Garde, all of which are connected by a free transport system. The slopes are mainly south facing and as a result the area, known as “L’ile ...
Alpe d’Huez has had sun and snow galore since 1936. And with a whopping 52km of greens, this is an excellent place for beginners. The easiest skiing is above the village and Les Bergers and there are plenty of wide open runs underneath the DMC gondola, many being ‘beginners only’ so you can learn without too much traffic. If you’re feeling confident, try some of the blue runs coming down from the main mountain and the signal sector back into Alpe d’Huez. There is a really impressive selection of runs for ...
If you like live music, try the Underground in Vieil Alpe, which combines a pleasant atmosphere with bands playing most nights. Smithys tavern is a proven success in the neighbouring resort of Les Deux Alpes and the Smithy’s in Alpe D’Huez has drinks promotions and healthy portions of Tex-Mex to match. If you can’t bear to miss an important game whilst in France then The Sports Bar is the best spot to watch live sports. L’igloo is the place to go if you want to party late into the night. Alpe d’huez has a...

"Chef called out for thanks at end of week - great staff"

Mr Li, Borehamwood
5/ out of 5
Les Cimes is one of the best I’ve been to – it’s fantastic. It’s an ex-hotel and it’s what you expect, a very good, general purpose property. The chalet staff were very good, very helpful and all friendly. The food is good, you get a choice in the morning and evening so you can pick what you want and you have the usual red and white wine to accompany the food. One of the other guests called the chef out at the end of the week so everyone could thank him; he was very shy but deserved the thanks. On the chalet night out we ate at Le Genepi which is really good - we’d eaten there before and would again. It has excellent accessibility, other than the fact that the 2 man chair lift (which it should take about 1 minute to ski down to) was closed all week when we were here because of conditions. We had to walk 5 minutes or so to the bottom station to the yoghurt pot lift in the village which is very slow and old; overall the journey took about 25 minutes more than it would have if the chair lift was running. We did manage to ski back at the end of the day to a point literally 5 minutes walk to the hotel, so it was only the journey out that took a while. The route to ski back is easy, anyone could do it. It’s pretty flat at points and you have to push and walk a bit but it is quite straight forward. The ensuite room we stayed in was clean, not spotlessly clean but we didn’t expect it to be so this wasn’t a problem.

"A really, really good chalet hotel"

The location was fantastic, about a 3 minute walk to the lifts and all downhill. The food was brilliant and the staff were great. The rooms were basic but comfortable. There weren’t any English channels on the TV but this is a small thing. It’s a hotel that suits everyone across the board – families, groups. It’s not luxury but its great value. We paid a phenomenally good price.

Apart from the location being fine (you just had to walk down to the slopes), everything else was awful, absolutely terrible. The food was disgusting. We booked the hotel thinking we’d be on our own and hadn’t realized we had to mix and match with other guests at dinner times. It wasn’t a problem for me as much but some guests just didn’t want to meet other people. The bathroom/toilet doors didn’t close (not just ours, other people complained too). The whole place was just shabby and horrible. We had a terrible problem with the ESF instructor who was really horrible to my daughter. I wouldn’t recommend it!
