My husband and I have just returned from a fantastic week in Morzine. The Hotel Sporting is ideally situated on the main road 5 minutes from the main Pleney lift and shopping street. There is a short cut down to the old town behind the hotel also. Rather than walk to the Pleney you can ski there from the button lifts right next to the hotel which pretty much removes the need to ever carry your skis around- a big plus in my book!
The bus stop outside the hotel is just 10mins (free) to Les Prodrains lift which takes you right into the heart of Avoriaz, much easier than the Super Morzine and making various changes.
The hotel is very comfortable, the rooms could do with a little updating but they are warm, clean and the beds are comfy so a very good nights sleep was had. The added Sauna and Pool is a good bonus too for a three star.
The service was excellent and food lovely with a good selection at breakfast and 5 courses in the evening. The chef is clearly very good and the food was very good.
Skiing wise we would recommend heading up higher than the main lettered slopes near the Pleney, the lettered slopes are the most busy and all the best runs are further up or over towards Les Gets. Avoriaz is also a must including skiing over to the quiet runs in Switzerland (you can take a chairlift if you don't fancy the Swiss Wall!)
We rented our equipment from Felix Ski through the hotel which meant we could leave our equipment at their shop (by the second button lift) which was excellent. We also had three days lessons from ESF which the Crystal Reps say you can't do as they only offer a week. This isn't true and as long as they aren't fully booked you can book lessons by the day.
All round a lovely holiday.
