Good standard attractive and well run hotel Posted 05-Jan-2015
The Golf Hotel is a lovely looking building not far from the main ski lift (250m and 10 min walk) with a lift direct down to the small, but very attractive town. The ski lift took 25 minutes from Brides Les Bains, but arrived straight into the heart of Meribel's ski lifts (a short walk from all the major ski lifts). This meant that one only required to walk for 10 mins. Note: for 5 Euros a day, there are ski lockers at the bottom of the lift which is very useful. The hotel facilities were well maintained with an attractive bar, restaurant and a nice steam room/ hot tub area. The rooms themselves were clean, nicely decorated and of a reasonable size. We had a disabled room which was slightly annoying as the floor tiles got easily wet. I had requested an upper floor with 2 rooms together, but we got the 1st floor with rooms at either end- not great with youngish kids. The double bed in our room was very small even though the room was large enough to accommodate far bigger. The hotel was warm and welcoming. The staff were excellent. The food was dietetic and of good quality. However, my niece is a vegetarian and, on the first night the cook substituted meet with a single leek. Also, the quantities were quite small for my growing nephew. We pointed this out to the staff and subsequent vegetarian options were commendable and quantities were upped for my nephew. Overall, excellent service and, again, excellent quality. The dining room was also lovely. Overall, I would recommend.
