What our clients are saying
Here are a few of our clients reviews posted on trip advisor last season, for up to date reviews please visit the relevant hotels on Trip Advisor.
It’s one of the hotels owned by Snowcoach holidays which are probably the best value ski trip you will find anywhere.
The public areas are where everyone meets afternoon tea and cake, then après ski, socialising and evening entertainment in the form of quizzes and party games. Excellent food every night 3 courses + cheese with as much wine as you can drink.
The young staff are so helpful and the manageress is wonderful, a credit to the company and she gets on so well with the customers and staff, which obviously makes for a very happy and well run hotel.
The hotel operates shuttle buses to and from the slopes at both ends of the day and you never seem to wait more than a few minutes for one. They even monitor the weather and if it changes will start pickups earlier than normal.
It is amazing value, the rooms are clean and comfortable, nice bathrooms and the food (and drink) excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone and I know that this company has a level of repeat business way above many others. You can fly or as we did go by Callinan coaches, these are modern and the 12 hour journey is comfortable with reclining seats, a film and on-board WC, but there are stops every 4 hours at a service station.
This was such a lovely break away for us, we would definitely return. We were provided with blankets on the coach and managed to sleep in the night, waking up to fantastic views of the Alps. Our en-suite room had free Wi-Fi, TV and was cleaned daily. The view when you opened the shutters each morning was breath-taking, as the hotel is just surrounded by mountains (difficult to truly show in pictures).
I have just returned from my fourth visit to this hotel and it gets better every year. It is the location for Snowcoach holidays which is probably the best value ski trip you’ll find anywhere. The stylish public areas are where everyone socialises and where evening entertainment happens in the form of quizzes and party games but you don’t have to participate if you’d rather have a quiet drink. The chef at the time made excellent food. The hotel operates shuttle buses to and from the slopes at both ends of the day, although local buses are fairly regular. Visits to other resorts on the lift pass are made a couple of times throughout the week at no extra cost. The coaches are modern and the 12 hour journey from Dover is reasonably comfortable with reclining seats, a film, an on-board WC and tea-making facilities but there are stops every 4 hours at a service station.
Firstly, the location of Hotel Terminus is very convenient; it is right next to the station for the Tramway du Mont Blanc (TMB) and the Saint Gervais les Bains railway station is about 100m away. More importantly, it’s about 10 minutes’ drive to the bottom of the first ski lift but the hotel shuttle is comfortable and convenient.
We were travelling with Snowcoach and had our meals included, and the team made no problems of catering for dietary requirements so we had nutritious vegetarian meals every night, which definitely have an authentic ‘home-cooked’ feel about them, with massive portions. The guests are also lucky enough to eat with/be served by a member of staff each night and this works brilliantly to make everything feel more social and personal. The bar also had a few local bottled beers to choose from which is great, and everything is well priced. The lounge area is also super comfortable and just a nice place to be.
The room was amazing, we found it absolutely spotless and had great sleeps on what was a brand new bed at the time, and quality pillows. The daily turn-down service is also fantastic, going as far as tidying and folding some clothes etc. we had left lying around. It’s probably impossible for the rooms not to have a mountain view! The hot tub was remarkably clean, and if you’re skiing, between getting the last lift back and dinner, there aren’t hours to kill so this wasn’t really relevant to us. If you’re a non-skier, you might prefer to check what’s up and running. Though there is a lift, there are a series of steps at the front entrance and wheelchair users would have to enter through the basement from the car park.
The highlight of whole experience (apart from the skiing, sorry guys) was the staff. They are helpful, warm people and I think they would be happy to help you under any circumstance and with whichever wishes or needs you have to make your stay. I believe this from personal experience, such as the help we had in arranging an evening at the thermal baths, a day trip to Les Houches on the TMB, and to organise ski lessons for our friend.
I returned to this hotel for the fourth time because Snowcoach offer the best ski package I have come across. Drive down the M1 to Watford, park at the pickup point just off the M1, get on the coach with skis, boots and bags, plug in earphones and snooze. Best trip so far arriving in Valmeinier for breakfast, and skiing by 10am! Snowcoach is using a new coach firm with new coaches with more space. Much easier than flying! And two extra days skiing.
First family and friends skiing holiday
Brilliant weeks holiday at Hotel L’Aigle with our four young children and friends.
Having visited this hotel before many years ago, I chose it for the proximity to the lifts with young children and the fact that last time the hotel was great.
This is one of the few places we have ever been able to get a room to sleep us all, which was nice. The children loved the kids club which was brilliantly run. We left the children with them on a morning, they did all sorts of activities and then got them sorted and took them for their lessons. The children got to eat earlier at 6pm and then there were activities for them on an evening while the adults are their meal.
The food was all well done for both adults and children with plenty of wine on the table during your meal.The skiing was great. Plenty of places to explore and pistes to conquer with a good mix of green, blue and red runs with a few black runs too for the more adventurous. The hotel has a lived in comfy feel which is clean and tidy.Well done Hotel L’Aigle and thank you for a fab holiday. We will be back!
I am a single traveller and have always found people to ski with either meeting them on the coach journey down, at the dinner table or the social skiing organised by the staff. All things included this package represents very good value for money. The ski area is as good as ever. Thanks to all for another enjoyable ski trip.
Having spent a few nervous days looking at the snow reports, we were greeted with a foot of fresh snow on our first evening ... fairy-tale snowscape whilst relaxing in the outdoor hot-tub! Big log fire and the tea-urn were simply fired up early and hot drinks and selection of cakes were enjoyed by all on the numerous comfy sofas.
Staff were friendly and helpful throughout - I particularly like the fact that they take it in turns to “host” dinner with the guests so they get to join in the fun.
This brings me to the guests ... this was our second Snowcoach holiday and I do not know how Snowcoach manage to attract such interesting and friendly clients - on both occasions we have made new friends and felt like we had known everyone for years after just a few short days...we are missing them all already!
Snowcoach was excellent to book through, easy, informative, helpful and professional. The coaches were excellent, great reclining seats and plenty of room with safe, confident and friendly drivers.
Hotel was excellent, rooms, perfectly formed with all that you would need, food was fantastic, plentiful, balanced and healthy. The best part was the staff team, they were all respectful, helpful, always went the extra mile, knowledgeable, professional and fun. They were the difference between a brilliant holiday and a perfect skiing family holiday experience.
Location of the hotel was amazing, right at the base of the slopes and ski lifts (walking) with great access to the local shops, restaurants and amenities. Nothing was trouble, from the moment we booked to the moment we were waved goodbye. Brilliant.
