Feedback from guests who have stayed at this chalet

Will, Izzy and James were all absolutely fantastic, Drivers Tom, Danny and Fergus all punctual, courteous and helpful, they were all lovely and simply could not have done more to make our holiday any better. Ski Basics are lucky to have them all.

Bill Collard - February, 2020

Your recruitment policy is evidently working well. Every single interaction with every member of your staff was exemplary. All looked to engage and seemed genuinely interested in how our stay was going.

Julian Shine - Christmas, 2019

We had a fabulous week. The chalet was lovely with excellent facilities. Our hosts exceeded our expectations in every way and couldn't do enough to make our stay extremely enjoyable. The transport to and from the slopes was really efficient and flexible. You ticked all our boxes in every way.

Julie Seward - January, 2019

Min and Jo were the most amazing chalet hosts. They were both so cheerful and friendly and made us feel so welcome. And the food was just amazing. Top marks girls!

Liz Harris - February 11, 2018

This is our second stay at this chalet, we love it so much we've booked for 2018!

Claire Tozer - January 28, 2017

It was marvellous, food delicious it was our first stay in a Plus chalet and definitely a great experience.

Genevieve Moat - December 16, 2016

The chalet was extremely nice with plenty of space for the 11 people and one infant who stayed without feeling crowded.

Andrea Murray - January 18, 2016

This was our fourth year with Ski Basics and we've booked already for next year. The chalets provide exactly the right level of home comforts, the food is superb and this combined with the level of service and the genuinely lovely staff makes for just the best skiing holiday. The snow and sunshine also helped! Seriously you do a great job. Thank you!

Liz Harris - February 7, 2015

Thought the Chalet, service, food and wine were of a great standard and gave good value for money. I would definitely recommend Ski Basics and use you again.

Nicola Lucy - March 15, 2014

Always a fantastic stay. Hosts were amazing and the food was brilliant. Izzy and Will could not be more welcoming - they were great. Chalet was always super clean and warm and felt like home.

Claire Colenutt - February, 2020

As always we had a great stay. Hope and Georgina were fabulous, looked after us so well, they are a credit to you. We'll be back again next year.

Claire Tozer - January, 2019

The formula works for us. The staff are all personable and attentive and nothing is too much trouble. We’ve had a really enjoyable week and will definitely book with you again. Thank you.

Alan Morgan - January, 2019

Our hosts were really lovely, nothing was too much trouble ever. Our glasses were constantly topped, food plentiful and all small requests were never an issue. They even found time to ‘colour’ with our two girls... the girls wanted to take them home! They made our week. Thank you ladies.

Emma Tozer - January 28, 2018

Good location, nice rooms and great sauna!

Corinna Heipcke - February 27, 2016

One of the best chalet holidays we have ever been on. Superb value for money, excellent service, excellent staff, excellent accommodation. We would love to see Ski Basics utilising a larger chalet with the plus+ service (so that we can bring even more friends!) and maybe even expanding into the other 3 Valley resorts... Thank you for looking after us. The food was excellent and very well presented. The menu was varied and flexible. The crumble was delicious!

Stuart Curran - April 12, 2014

The hostesses and drivers went above and beyond to make our holiday the best we have ever had! I would definitely recommend for others to stay in this chalet - great location too!

Julie-Anne Deignan - March 15, 2014

Without doubt, an excellent holiday from start to finish. The chalet more than met our expectations and the hosts were brilliant. I have already recommended Ski Basics to colleagues.
