The hotel was very nice. It ticked all the boxes and for the price I paid it was superb – it was more than I expected. The food was excellent. Proper good quality food. It was healthy and the menu changed every day. It was buffet style with the option of 2 or 3 mains, but you could mix and match as you pleased... + more

The hotel was fine, the staff were really helpful and the food was very good. One side of the hotel has been renovated recently and the other is a bit older - my room wasn’t amazing but it was quite fine, it had a TV and I always had a good night’s sleep. The hotel has a nice lounge area with an open fire, a ... + more

Spread across a number of villages and hamlets, the Serre Chevalier valley’s not your usual alpine resort – but that’s what we like about it. While you won’t find a main hub of restaurants, bars and accommodation, a stay in one of the villages gives you a more ski-focussed, budget friendly week on the mountains. Briancon, Chantemerle, Villeneuve and Monêtier are the four main bases, each with their own character, but all with terrific lift access to the mountain. Typical French Briancon sits at the fa...
With some of the best conditions in the French Alps (80% of the slopes are above 2000m) the ski area includes wide-open, sunny plateaus, scenic tree lined runs and a perfectly groomed blanket of white beneath your skis or board. The piste can be accessed from all four towns and nursery slopes run from each allowing beginners to gain some confidence in peace - with help from the excellent ski schools in the area they’ll be progressing higher in no time! Beginners will find a number of gentle blues and steady ...
There’s never a dull moment here and with four different towns oozing character you’re sure to find something to suit you. Ski down the home run at Chantemerle to find the popular station bar where après ski begins with a happy hour or if you’re based in Villeneuve, the Grotto at the base of the slopes is the place to be for that après ski buzz! 1420 in Briancon is perfect for an evening of sophisticated drinks. The liveliest après is found at Villeneuve with a number of bars for evening drinks - The Frog ...

"Excellent hotel for solo travellers"

Steven Moore, Buckinghamshire
5/ out of 5
The hotel was very nice. It ticked all the boxes and for the price I paid it was superb – it was more than I expected. The food was excellent. Proper good quality food. It was healthy and the menu changed every day. It was buffet style with the option of 2 or 3 mains, but you could mix and match as you pleased. There was also a cold veg section as well as fruit, bread and soup (which changed every day). The service was good too, the staff had good English skills. The rooms weren’t massively luxurious but then it was a ski holiday so I didn’t spend a lot of time in there. I had a decent shower, and a TV with some English channels. The lounge/bar and dining area were very nice and there were big windows looking out onto the piste, so you could watch the children lining up for ski school as you ate breakfast. I went as a solo traveller and it’s a good hotel for meeting people. I made some friends at the hotel bar and everyone ate dinner at big tables together so by the end of the week we all knew each other. The hotel is literally across the road from the main gondola. There are some bars and shops in the village but not much, if you take the bus it’s a 5 minute journey to the next town where there is a supermarket, etc.

"Overall a nice hotel"

The hotel was fine, the staff were really helpful and the food was very good. One side of the hotel has been renovated recently and the other is a bit older - my room wasn’t amazing but it was quite fine, it had a TV and I always had a good night’s sleep. The hotel has a nice lounge area with an open fire, a bar and a TV showing sport. There was also WiFi access. You literally walk across the road and you’re at the lift which is very convenient. There are also shops etc just along the road and up a short access road so you really are in the centre of things.

"Grand Aigle review"

Just to say thank you for booking our holiday and dealing with all the various requests!! We had a great time, in spite of the lack of snow (the artificial snowmaking was suprisingly extensive) and did some other things instead of skiing on a couple of the days. Overall the hotel was very comfortable and the staff extremely helpful (although it is definitely a bit dated - almost eccentric actually and has character because of that). One thing I would say, however, is that we did end up paying an extra 42 Euros each per day (around £400) for an upgrade for my mother and law and my husband and I in order to have the rooms with views at the front with balcony (which I asked for originally). We were put into rooms at the back which were tiny, dark and depressing (minisucule bathrooms). It was quite an additional expense to be hit with (but definitely worth it). It would have been helpful to have known this at the time we booked.
