We enjoyed staying here. We only had four people staying there; I think with 12 it would have been tight in the social areas.

Excellent. The chalet is located very near to the Pleney and Super Morzine lifts which makes getting up into the mountains super-quick and very easy. Our chalet hosts, Luke & Beth, were great, providing us with great food, plentiful wine and lots of hints and tips on how to get the best out of our stay in Morzi... + more

Meals - food and drink in Dakota Lodge

Our Executive Chef is passionate about food and hugely sensitive to the appetite of a hungry skier whilst considering a balanced diet. The new and refined 2014 menus are heavy enough to reward mountain exertion yet light and simple enough to leave you grinning not groaning.

All our holidays include;

  • Continental breakfast with a cooked option on 6 mornings
  • Afternoon tea will be left in the chalet for you to help yourself to freshly made cake or biscuits, bread & jams, selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate
  • Canapés on the first and last evening
  • 3 course evening meal (6 nights) followed by cheese board and coffee
  • A choice of red and white wine is served throughout dinner
We update Dakota Lodge's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

While the charming alpine atmosphere will make you feel like you've stepped into a traditional winter wonderland, you'll find that Morzine is a contemporary resort with all mod-cons. The huge range of shops, restaurants, pubs, clubs and off-slope activities pretty much have everything for everyone and contribute to the friendly, buzzing village life. There's more to do on and off the slope than you can shake a ski pole at, including loads of activities for non-skiers, and après ski is lively and varied. Highl...
The scale of the mountain terrain is impressive and with the Portes du Soleil pass, seemingly endless. All abilities are catered for well and to top it off, you can heli-ski, speed ride and go night skiing on the Pleney. With excellent ski schools and conveniently located nursery slopes, Morzine is popular for novices. You'll find lots of gentle greens and easy blues for snowploughing including Gernes and Proclo. Beginner boarders are in expert hands too: Mint Snowboarding is a top school specialising in snowb...
Because it's a great resort for those with children in tow, the high quality of après ski in Morzine is often overlooked. You'll find a lively, friendly atmosphere after hours with a good range of venues to suit everyone (and with fantastic childcare services on offer, even parents can sample the nightlife). In terms of places to drink in Morzine, Le Robinson is a popular vintage bar offering a relaxed atmosphere. Crowds tend to gather at the foot of the slopes to party in Le Tremplin while local beers and cock...

"A good week in Morzine"

Karen
4/ out of 5
We enjoyed staying here. We only had four people staying there; I think with 12 it would have been tight in the social areas. The dining room and lounge area are open plan and with a full chalet everyone would need to literally be sitting right up next to each other! Our chalet hosts were very good indeed and the food was excellent. It’s a very central chalet, right in the middle of town. There was limited internet connection and we didn’t have TV’s in the rooms – otherwise I would give it a 5 out of 5!

"Skiing holiday in Morzine"

All in all, my partner and I had an excellent holiday experience. The chalet hostesses were extremely friendly and professional. Our only suggestions would be with the chalet (Dakota Lodge) itself. Firstly, the dining room chairs make a lot of noise when they are moved around and this can be heard clearly in the rooms downstairs. It would help to attach felt or cork pads under the feet of all the chairs. Secondly, the ventilation system in the chalet kitchen is inter-connected with the vents in the each of the bedrooms' bathrooms. Cooking smells therefore pervade the entire chalet including the bedrooms. Perhaps the ventilation system is blocked or needs to be improved? Otherwise, well done

"Good but could be better for the staff"

Negatives. Toilet system inoperative, bedside light bulbs blown, light inoperable in WC next to boot room Chalet staff working conditions poor. Oven door closure not working properly, dishwasher only had a single 1 and a half hour cycle programme, staff had to use an additional fridge 2 floors below as kitchen fridge had insufficient storage Positives. Helpful staff especially as the airline had lost our bags, food good, clean chalet Would return!!!

Everyone agreed it was a great holiday, our vegetarians were particularly impressed with the food; the spa service was also used by some of the group, who found it to be very good especially as it came to the chalet. The atmosphere in the chalet added to the enjoyment of the holiday due to the friendly and efficient, but not intrusive, chalet hosts.

Excellent. The chalet is located very near to the Pleney and Super Morzine lifts which makes getting up into the mountains super-quick and very easy. Our chalet hosts, Luke & Beth, were great, providing us with great food, plentiful wine and lots of hints and tips on how to get the best out of our stay in Morzine (i.e. where the best bars are ;-) We made some great new friends in the chalet and just had a ball. The rooms were smaller than your website imagery suggested but the beds were very comfy and the bathrooms more than adequate too. The proximity of the lifts to the chalet really made up for any short-comings that the chalet itself may have had. Overall, we thought it was excellent and would happily return. If you can just do something about the fickle Morzinoise snow falls...
