The accommodation is not allocated at the time you book so you can end up anywhere. We stayed in Petit Chatel. It is quite nice but a bit of a walk to the town. There is also a ski bus. We stayed in a private appartment and it check in was with a local neighbour. Finding her was quite hard and she was not particularly helpful. Two things to be aware of:
1. Towels and sheets are not easy to find so take your own. I thought these were going to be provided but in the end we had to hire some from a shop in the town.
2. You have to clean the room at the end of your stay to get your €200 deposit back.
The rooms are not that big but reasonably comfortable and with good views.

"Gem of a hotel in Chatel nr. to Le Chatel DH Park"
Fantastic location easy walking distance (5 mins) to Chatel center, bike rentals, etc. Talk to the owners and they'll recommend bike shops, swimming pool, etc (discount access to pool in Chatel and lifts for hiking at Le Chatel). Buy DH Bike tickets at Le Chatel itself. Free bus takes riders (and hikers) plus bikes to the lifts.
Hotel is clean and rooms are well outfitted. Most have a great mountain view and a calming stream runs down the side of the property, so blocks and normal hotel noise. Very relaxing to wake up to in the morning.
Hotel breakfast is plentiful, in the classic French style (coffee etc., croissant, bread and jam, juice) plus cereal and pastry options at the buffet. Good value too, compared with other locations.
Restaurant has a very unique menu, with specials varying daily. Don't expect burger and fries, but instead true French imagination (fondue, quiche, etc.) with reasonable (although not cheap) prices. Local selection of wines available too. Well worth it for anyone except the super-budget traveler.
Hotel and restaurant staff speak English very adequately, but will happily talk with you in French and won't automatically switch to English if you struggle a little, but they will help you along. We found this refreshing when trying to use our 30 year out-of-date school French. Menus are in French (maybe they have a hidden English one for those that need it, but we didn't want it and it wasn't offered thank goodness!).

Perfect for a winter or summer break, the Logis de France Hotel Le Roitelet is ideally located at the edge of the Chatel ski …More
The hotel is 100 yards from the Linga lift, right in the middle of the Porte de Solei ski area. Its perfect for good skiers, but probably not the right place for beginners, since the skiing is limited if you are uncomfortable with a slightly tricky red run to get back at the end of the day... If that doesn't bother you, then Linga is better connected with the rest of the ski area than the main "Super-Chatel" part.
