This hotel is situated above a lively, popular apres-ski bar and is ideal for those looking for a fun holiday. It is also just 150 metres from the new Prodain lift and you can practically ski back to the door or directly if you go off-piste.

The hotel has five en-suite bedrooms upstairs from the bar providing great value accommodation. Breakfast can be included at an additional cost.

All the bedrooms are very comfortable with an ‘austrian twin’ and a single bed, and access onto the balcony.

The hotel includes a terrace and open garden where you can relax in the sunshine after a day on the mountain.

Open all year round, the hotel is equally perfect for skiing and mountain biking holidays being located so close to the lifts. There is also ski and bike storage on-site so your gear won't take over your living space.

La Kinkerne is great for couples of groups looking for well-priced accommodation right next to the lifts.

Cycle Hire

You’ll need to organise your own bike hire when staying here. Things to consider are the type of bike you want to rent such as road, mountain, hard trail and/or an electric bike; and whether you’ll need helmets and protective clothing with your rental. You’re best off choosing a shop that is close to your accommodation for ease of access, and making it quicker to return the bike and pay at the end. Some companies may also deliver so it’s worth looking at all the options.

Visitor comments

  • "I stayed with my partner here over New Year. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this hotel. Excellent for locality. It literally took us 5 minutes to walk up, with ski boots on, to the Prodain Express which takes you up the mountain. The menu at the hotel was varied, catering for all tastes. We ate here 3 of the nights and enjoyed everything that we had. The rooms are nicely decorated, warm, clean and comfortable. The staff were lovely, always friendly and ready to help. I would like to thank Olivia in particular who made are stay extra special, always smiling and a delight to have around! 2 of the nights there was live music during the 'après ski' hours which were absolutely brilliant. During our stay Pixie Lott came into the bar 3 of the nights, bit of a bonus, and what is good enough for Pixie is definitely good enough for me!!!" - Trip Advisor
  • "What can I say? La Kinkerne and the crew gave me the warmest welcome I've had in Morzine in a long time.  La Kinkerne is located at the bottom of the main La Prodains chair servicing Avoriaz and beyond. Ski in ski out is amazing. The place has been renovated recently and have a wonderful contemporary cool about it. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. Great house keeping and an attitude geared to customer service makes it just wonderful. The bar is well stocked and the Alepine pale ale is to die for. The food, oh Lordy the food! Ask the kitchen to surprise you and you will not be disappointed. Prices are also very, very reasonable." - Trip Advisor
