    rooms too small, staircase to one of the top rooms impossible with a suitcase as stairs were too narrow. Not at all like the description online and very expensive for the quality we received. No lift for suitcases either

    Only one very unhelpful member of staff at reception. After an 8 hour journey we were given an inadequate room for 4. Also told we had to make our own beds & strip them off when we vacate. We had to take all our rubbish out with us. The rooms were shabby & full of dog smells. It really was dirty, dingy and we will never book again.

    Very little to be perfectly honest.

    Beds not very comfortable, but that's par for the course in every hotel/chalet we've stayed in, in France.

    Friendly helpful host. Functional apartment, all you need for basic cooking.

    One of the heaters was broken and we were freezing in one of the rooms. The apartment is very small , including the living room.

    Staff was very helpfull. Location is 200m from the slopes. Free parking. Nice view from some of the rooms. They rent for 1 night also.

    Everything was lovely in Montchavin. It was unfortunate that the common room with a cozy fireplace and bar closed around 7pm as it would have been nice to hang out there later.

    The staff were very helpful and kind. Comfortable flat with two showers. The ski lift was just a couple hundred meters away and we could basically ski to the door. Fresh bread could be ordered in the morning. The sauna was small but clean and private as it had to be booked. It was one of the best deals we could find over the holidays.

    Pillows were really hard, kitchen wasn't equipped for cooking proper meals (2 rings and no oven)

    Close to ski lift, ski back to property, warm with lots of hot water. Much larger than we expected. Nice bathrooms.

    Virtually everything. Poor facilities, inability to stand up in the bedrooms due to ridiculous ceiling height. The bedding was dreadful and to top it off, it was appalling value

    Very little indeed. There was a ski locker room so that’s good. Located within walking distance of the lifts which is also good

    The beds are not the best ones. No elevator available.

    Very convenient chalet-type apartment. Perfect to rent with a group of friends when you go skiing in Montchavin. Also nice that we could pick up our key after hours in a safety box with number lock.

    No lifts in the building. Parking space limited. Expensive.

    For French standards it is quite okay. Bathroom and toilet look like they have been renovated in the current century, the rest is a bit older, and it is small. But the studio is clean and adequately equipped. Heating works well. The mattress of the ingenious sofa bed bounces on each move of your partner, but apart from that it is reasonably comfortable. Friendly people, also in the skipass office. You pay for the location, which is a nice village at the bottom of the skiing area.
