- "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
