Hotel L’Aigle


Extract from Tracey, Trip Advisor - March 2024

Another great trip to Valmeinier with Snowcoach Have travelled with Snowcoach for 20+ years and again this year did not disappoint for our annual family skiing/snowboarding holiday.
Booking very easy and head office staff communicated well when I needed to amend ski hire and reserve seats etc. At South Mimms when joining the coach, all was well organised by coach drivers and Snowcoach staff. Journey out fine and arrived into resort in good time. As usual the Staff at the L’Aigle were excellent, nothing too much trouble for them, and made to feel very welcome. Hotel clean, great food and excellent location to the ski lifts. Journey home went well and back to UK on time.
Highly recommend and will hopefully be travelling with them again next year.

Takes a lot to beat!! Once again a very enjoyable holiday. Snowcoach have put together a package that offers an extremely friendly service and holiday. Have travelled with them for yonks and look for to carrying on doing so. Looking forward to next year.

Extract from David, Trip Advisor – February 2024

Perfect hassle-free experience. For the dedicated skier to the first-time family ski party, I cannot think of a better company, hotel or resort for a more hassle-free experience. The hotel is not the most luxurious, but the key is in the fact you are going on a ski hotel, not to luxuriate all day by the pool. Staff, food atmosphere all excellent. Felt right at home as soon as I arrived.


Extract from Kate, Trip Advisor – February 2024

Stress free family skiing holiday. The hotel is really well situated for the slopes and local amenities.

Rooms are small and cosy but have everything in that we need. Anything additional can usually be hired from Reception. We love that everyone eats together in the evening and that we had different tables each night so that we mixed with other guests and got to know everyone staying at Hotel L'Aigle. Food was tasty and filling, complimented of course with wine.


We made good use of the hot tub and the spa which are both open from 4pm and liked the easy access from the locker room (where every room has a locker) to the slopes.


The staff were all absolutely superb. Despite being a predominantly young team, everyone was incredibly helpful and friendly. They would go out of their way to ensure guests were happy and comfortable. With the hotel being small, the staff were always visible, so they became part of the social scene, including sitting with us at dinner, making our stay feel much like home from home.


The coach is also a great way to travel. To the door drop off, comfortable seating and a stress-free journey.


Extract from Chris, Trip Advisor – February 2024

Great trip to Valmeinier with Snowcoach. Really enjoyed our trip. We flew to Geneva and were met by the minivan to take us to the hotel. (Liaise with them to ensure you don’t arrive too early and have a long wait as they only have a few vans to cater for all transfer).


Hotel in prime location for the lifts, ski storeroom too. Basic facilities but welcoming and clean.

Staff all very friendly and joined you at the table for dinner for the 4-course meal. Cakes and tea at 4-5 and a jacuzzi if you wish. Bar reasonably priced and free wine with dinner.


Can’t argue about value for money. Easiest skis hire I have ever experienced. Great little town, good bars and the skiing was fantastic. Lots of long runs and good for beginners and intermediate. Enjoyed the bowing night out they organised too.


Extract from Paul, Trip Advisor – January 2024

A brilliant holiday. Great value, a fantastic position and great food. The staff were very accommodating, and the coach only has about 40 seats, so loads of leg room. Good skis and boot hire all in the same building. Good runs over 3 mountains and plenty of off piste when the conditions are right.


Extract from Saj, Trip Advisor – December 2023

Great Christmas Holiday! Great atmosphere created in the hotel. Kids loved the doorstep skiing. Food great. Staff friendly & helpful. Lovely lounge to sit & relax in front of the roaring fire and looking out at the snow capped mountains. We will definitely be back!

Extract from Pete, Trip Advisor – February 2023

Perfect family hotel with heart. Homely and rustic hotel with the friendliest and most helpful staff you could ever wish for. The term customer service does not do justice for the genuine and fun staff who especially made my four year olds stay a brilliant one. Nothing was too much trouble for them. All superstars. Room clean and functional with plenty of storage space and perfect shower. Super food all week and free flowing free wine during the meal. A lovely atmosphere with staff and guests alike mingling and having fun. Great proximity to the slopes and a hidden gem of a resort that I think the French have understandably wanted to keep for themselves. Good amount of varied slopes that are not too busy and a pretty little resort centre with a smattering of shops, bars and restaurants plus a handy Spar over road from hotel. Finally flexible options for coach or sorting out your own flights and the hotel lays on the transfers for a very reasonable cost. Literally the perfect ski holiday. Well done Snowcoach you’ve nailed it!


Mrs. W, Bromsgrove – February 2023

Another fabulous holiday. Thanks to all the staff involved.


Mrs. K, Harrogate – February 2023

Mrs. S, Liversedge – February 2023

Amazing food and service from all staff throughout our stay.


Mr. P, Battle – February 2023

Excellent value for money. Friendly, helpful staff, the hotel in general has a relaxed and social atmosphere.


Mr. A, Finedon, Northants – February 2023

Many thanks for an excellent holiday. Hope to see you again in March.


Extract from Chris B, Trip Advisor – January 2023

Overall we had a great time, the staff have been a real credit to the business and were very helpful. I will certainly look at Snowcoach again for my future ski holidays.


Mrs. W, Penarth, South Glamorgan – January 2023

Really enjoyed our stay here! Staff were lovely, food was absolutely outstanding and service very good.


Ms. C, Llanrwst – January 2023

Once again, after travelling with Snowcoach for 35 years, an excellent week at the L’Aigle. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful and the food was amazing. A big thank you to all the staff.


Mr. K, High Wycombe – January 2023

Great Service from HQ. Staff at hotel excellent. Food outstanding. Been coming since 1996!

Ms. G, Berkhamsted, Herts – December 2022

Super, lovely, friendly staff. Thank you all.


Extract from Graham B, Trip Advisor – April 2022

Another great holiday. Just returned after last week of season. Plenty of snow and most runs still open.


This was our 19th season with Snowcoach so that speaks volumes. L'Aigle is situated in fantastic location, 100metres or less. The hotel has its own boots/skis for hire, and you can pre book lift passes with them, so all you need to do is turn up and you can head off out skiing.
From Valmeinier you can ski across to Valloire, fantastic skiing area.

Skiing with Snowcoach is a social experience and a great way to meet other skiers. Meals are taken on tables of about ten so always chatting to different people if you wish. The staff were brilliant. It is not an expensive luxury holiday but fantastic value for money. Rooms are basic but clean and tidy, ours was lovely with great views of the mountains.

Plenty to eat at breakfast, and really nice 4 course meals during our stay. Main course one night was best duck I've eaten. (Well done, Drew). Complimentary wine is provided during the first three courses. Outdoor hot tub overlooking mountain, lovely.

We travelled on their coach, long journey but coaches and drivers are good so worth the time. We travelled at the height of the P&O problems so feared delays at the ports. Snowcoach had swapped bookings to Irish Ferries and thankfully there were no delays on either journey. Can't wait till next year.


Rebecca & Alex B. Pinner – April 2022

Had such a lovely time and so cosy – just wish we were staying longer. Thank you!


Extract from David M, Trip Advisor - March 2022

Great holiday format and superb staff. Just returned from a fabulous week’s skiing with Snowcoach in Valmeinier. We had a glorious run of eight full day’s blue sky skiing with a mixed ability group. The accommodation is quite basic but warm and clean, the meals were decent and plentiful. The club hotel promotes integration amongst guests and staff, which was brilliant.

The staff were consistently great but a special shout out to Neil, along with Jack and Drew for their great humour and excellent ski guide touring, expertly picking the best slopes which helped make a fantastic week.

Snowcoach were exceptionally easy to deal with and dealt brilliantly with the unexpected P&O situation, they provide a great value for money service and experience.

Well done guys, we will be back!


Liz C, Conwy – March 2022

An excellent week in all. Staff very friendly yet professional and helpful.  Drew the manager has to be one of the best in over 30 years of travelling with Snowcoach.

Peter D, Norwich – March 2022

Yet another amazing Snowcoach experience. Snowcoach and Hotel l’Aigle is really one of skiing’s best kept secrets.

It is the Snowcoach family (team) that from start to finish make it such a magical experience.

We have been many times with Snowcoach, but this was the first time with our children, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. We will definitely be back in 2023! Well done and thank you.


David A, Chichester – March 2022

Excellent staff, great vibe, friendly and welcoming. We loved every minute.


Extract from Simon T, Trip Advisor - February 2022

Another great week. Just back from our fourth visit. A great budget hotel. Rooms are clean and warm. Breakfast is serve yourself (as much as you want). 4pm tea/coffee and freshly made cakes and then a 4-course evening meal with free wine which will fill you up.

The staff are mainly students and this year’s team were definitely the best we have had although we have not had a bad group.

Hotel is 50 yards from the lifts which is another great plus. Will be back for our 5th time I'm sure.

Sue T, High Wycombe – February 2022

It is nice to meet staff at the dinner table. Fabulous hotel, fabulous holiday, fabulous staff!


Kirsty D, St Albans – February 2022

Huge thanks to Neil and Jack for social skiing.  All the staff are fab.


Sam I, Kingsbridge – February 2022

Everyone who works in the hotel has made the holiday!

Jonny L, Whitstable – February 2022

Food has been really good. Very clean hotel. Great ski team – thank you!
