- "A well situated hotel with amazing food. The rooms are fairly spacious and tastefully decorated. The staff are very friendly and service is excellent." - Trip Advisor
- "I can report that the standard of service and quality of food was superb and the staff all friendly and helpful. The hotels position at Meribel's fashionable Rond Point couldn't be better and the pretty Foret ski run is directly behind the hotel so you can ski in and ski out." - Trip Advisor
- "This hotel was a real treat. It is really well located, in a true ski-in ski-out position. It has spacious and comfortable public areas. Our room was delightful, with a balcony overlooking the hotel patio and the mountains at the side of the hotel. Service and food in the restaurant were top-notch. The menu offered great choices, and the food was delicious and beautifully presented. The ski boot room was good, (although occasionally became just a little crowded), and just up the steps from the ski room you are out onto the slopes. I would strongly recommend this hotel. It is a luxury hotel, albeit at a luxury price." - Trip Advisor
