We came as a group and we're very well looked after. The hotel is 3* but has a few nice touches and it's location in the centre of Tignes le Lac is perfect. Rooms and bathrooms are on the small side but this was not an issue for us. Excellent breakfast selection and the staff were incredibly nice and helpful...

Great location, friendly English speaking staff and above average breakfast buffet (not Hilton level but above Alps standard with bacon & eggs) make this hotel a great choice. The spa is also worth mentioning with its steam and Scandinavian saunas plus two jacuzzis. Another plus from a spacious ski locker - ours would have swallowed 5-6 pairs easily. The bed...

Hotel Le Refure is a great Hotel. This was the 4th time we stayed there and I would deftly go back. The people at the reception are always willing to help, very friendly and kind and can help you with the best restaurant in and around Tignes. The breakfast is a joy, wide range of (local) products with a little...

Awesome Hotel, historical and location wise. Furniture and facilities a little old but everything was really well mantained and clean. Very cosy overall. Good breakfast, not great, but adequate. Right in front of the main lifts. Great storage for the skis and spa (we were there always alone, everything available).

Last year I recommended this place and announced I was going back this year. Having been back, I have absolutely no reservations about recommending the place again. The location next to the slopes is perfect - it's as close as you can get to ski-in, ski-out (you have to cross the road); and the hire shop (again, highly recommended) is...

The hotel is perfect and the staff is great. We especially appreciated the bathrobes and the slippers (unusual for a 3-star hotel), the amazing view from our balcony and the rich and tasteful breakfast with mostly local products. Thank you very much to our kind hosts !

I have stayed at here for 3 days in the middle of summer to experience summer skiing and other activities you can find at Tignes. In my opinion this is the perfect location no matter when you visiting summer or winter. Strong and fast wi-fi connection in every place (that is not trivial according to my experience). Ski lifts just...

Let Refuge has an enviable location in the heart of Tignes Lac. My room had space, though the separate bathroom/ WC limited the storage space. The bed was comfortable, the balcony has a perfect view up the valley. Wifi was poor. Service and welcome, excellent with all the staff willing to go the extra mile to help. For example, arranging...
