The staff were great, really welcoming and friendly, always on hand if needed. The food was excellent, you will never be hungry staying here! The rooms were small but comfortable. I never had a cold shower, maybe just lucky! The bar is pretty small but the service was always good and drinks reasonable price for the area. The location is...

as far as chalet holidays go, this was one of our best. The chalet itself was basic but comfortable. however the service and the quality of food certainly made up for this. We had more food than expected and the quality was brilliant. The staff were helpful, friendly and always smiling. This really helped make our holiday perfect. I read...

Not luxurious by any means and nowhere really comfortable to kick back and relax after a day on the piste. If it's spas and saunas and pools and hot tubs your after, this isn't the place for you. The rooms were basic but comfortable. The beds were a bit small for a big guy like me. Fortunately, our room was...

We have just had a wonderful stay at Champs Avalins. I agree with previous reviewers, ignore the negative ones! Yes, the hotel could do with sprucing up, the baths are somewhat bijou and time it wrong and the hot water flows slowly. However, the rooms were clean, staff always helpful and the food and wine excellent (and they provided a...

Basic hotel in need of an upgrade but clean and in superb location. Food great and staff very friendly and helpful.Nothing too much trouble for Hannah and Josh the management team. Excellent access to the slopes. Would recommend it for value for money.

Ignore all negative reviews below as this place is more than what you'd expect from a 3 star hotel. Basic rooms which could do with a bit of work but perfectly comfortable, fab food at both breakfast and dinner and the loveliest staff - the perfect base for a ski holiday as it's basically ski in ski out and so...

Please ignore any bad reviews about this hotel. The accommodation & decor is what you would expect for 3* accommodation but its clean, comfortable and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The food is plentiful & very tasty, the wine flows during dinner and we were always able to find space at the bar after our 6.30pm dinner sitting....

Well like many I read several reviews before I went. I would summarise the pros: - perfectly acceptable accommodation to stay in. I was in room 308 which had a nice balcony overlooking the piste. - very pleasant and efficient staff. - decent food and nice lay out for dinner (I never made it down to breakfast due to being...

We were well aware that we were booking into a 'budget' chalet hotel, and had read a great many on-line reviews, so were expecting quite a few of the things we found (tiny bootroom, small bedrooms, tired décor etc, and had no problem with any of these things. On the plus side, the food served at the evening meals was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In common with the rest of Val d’Isère’s La Daille area, the hotel might not win any awards for the cutest or prettiest exterior in the Alps, but as with all properties, it is the location that really counts! And that’s where the Champs Avalins really scores. You can ski back to within just 50m of the hotel, and each morning you have a choice of lifts right on hand to whisk you up the mountain. ... more   less
