We were always hooked on Austria for our family ski week but places of high altitude with good snow ran out. So on advice of a friend we went to Val d'Isère and The Barmes. The check in and the welcome were great, before we realised it our boots and helmets were put in the ski room. The standard rooms...

What a lovely hotel Les Barmes is! Very well appointed with nice rooms, friendly helpful staff and great food! The hotel is within spitting distance of the gondolas and chairlifts but far away enough to not be disturbed by high street revellers. All in all a great thumbs up and big recommendation

We have just spent a week at Hotel Les Barmes de L'Ours skiing in Val D I'sere. The hotel is 5 star in a premier ski resort so it is expensive but if you can accept this the hotel is wonderful.

Paying 420 euros the night for a room that has no shower. Only a bathtub but no curtains so all the water spills out and no place in the wall to hang the eater telephone so you always have to hold it in your hand. Which is not comfortable for a shower and washing your hair.

Dear Sir, We are very surprised about your comment as every room category has a very clear description on our website... and in the case of the Standard room, it is mentioned there is only a bathtub. Should we knew you had a preference for rooms with shower, we would have recommended you a upper category. In any case we...

What makes this hotel stand out is the training and attention of the staff who are constantly thinking of the guests; they act before you need to ask. Yes, maybe the standard rooms are a little small but overall, the hotel is outstanding. The ski service ( the Pro Shop ) is the best I have found anywhere anticipating requests...

Don't get me wrong - Hotel Les Barmes de l'Ours is really good, but considering the rating of the hotel and the price level I had expected something that was excellent.

I am being a bit mean by only giving three stars as the hotel is excellent. The rooms and staff are great (as I expected for 1000 euros a night). BUT the food in the grill restaurant is just terrible! The starter buffet is about sufficient for a five star hotel. But, I suffered a main course on two occasions...

In short - the best skiing accommodation over the past 10 years. Location: In Val d'Isere, which is next to a glacier, so skiing is almost guaranteed. Close to ski lifts, definitely ski-out; not always ski-in, as only one particular slope goes past the hotel. 10 minutes walk to town centre, and good own shuttle service with MB Viano adapted...
