    My Wife and I had not been on a chalet holiday for quite some time. We were in Morzine at the end of January and in 2013 and had seen the smart VIP staff walking around so decided to give it a go. Booking process was easy, we were last minute but Becky handled all our enquiries very well, thank you. We are very familiar with Morzine and it remains our favourite ski resort, so lift passes and skis we sorted ourselves. Chalet Dakota was our chosen lodge and we stayed with people that we had not met before, a very nice friendly bunch as it turned out. Kate and Beth, very lovely and helpful, how they managed to cook in such a small kitchen remains a mystery and one feels that turning out countless meals in such a small environment can only affect the overall quality. The wine was satisfactory albeit I only drank the white on offer. The lodge itself was very smart and impressive with good views and a very convenient centre of town location. I always measure any stay on the quality of the bed and shower and both were very good indeed. Overall after many years of booking apartments by ourselves, are we chalet converts, that remains to be seen.

    Fantastic trip, fourth time using VIP since 2005. Beats Crystal hands down. Beth and Kate went out of their way on numerous occasions to help make the trip that more enjoyable. Great food, chalet kept very clean and lots of fun had.. Thanks a lot! Also planning the trip with Megan was v easy. Pre booked equipment and lessons with no problems. In chalet ski fitting was excellent. Persistence at pre-informing me of a broken shower (fixed day 1) shows VIPs attention to detail and customer service.

    All in all, my partner and I had an excellent holiday experience. The chalet hostesses were extremely friendly and professional. Our only suggestions would be with the chalet (Dakota Lodge) itself. Firstly, the dining room chairs make a lot of noise when they are moved around and this can be heard clearly in the rooms downstairs. It would help to attach felt or cork pads under the feet of all the chairs. Secondly, the ventilation system in the chalet kitchen is inter-connected with the vents in the each of the bedrooms' bathrooms. Cooking smells therefore pervade the entire chalet including the bedrooms. Perhaps the ventilation system is blocked or needs to be improved? Otherwise, well done and I am sure we will book with VIP SKI again in the future!

    The chalet was very clean, comfortable and well located but small, the girls were lovely, accommodating and have to say for a fussy eater i enjoyed all bar 1 meal , the only really picky points would be the hot tub made my eyes sting after a very short while and was heavily over chlorinated and it would be worth after picking good wines good accom,to pick good ingredients, the jam was the cheapest on the shelf and bless the girls but they had been buying orange nectar all season not knowing the difference between that and orange juice (please dont chastise them because when they realised their error, were embarrassed and freshly squeezed some oranges with a smile)as I said , it was being extra picky. One last point the shower was never fixed as said, and my thoughts are that if i returned at the end of season it would be in the same condition

    We have had a fantastic week with Beth and Kate in Dakota Lodge. They have been absolutely brilliant and have made us all feel completely at home. Nothing has been too much trouble - whether it is cooking pancakes for breakfast, doing our washing or giving us tips in the best nightclubs - they have done everything with charm and good humour. The food has been consistently brilliant, and it has been such a treat to come back each day after skiing to delicious cakes and an evening feast. The only disappointment was the issue with the bust shower, which could have been dealt with my VIP management more quickly and a bit more seriously at the outset. We could have been informed in advance of arrival given that this was a known problem. However, this does not reflect upon Kate and Beth at all. Thank you very much Beth and Kate for you fabulous hospitality and for making us all feel like VIPs!

    A fantastic week had in a luxurious chalet, with 2 of the best chalet hosts I have ever had. The location of the chalet itself is perfect for both of the main lifts in Morzine with no need for buses or long treks; just simply a casual stroll and you're on the piste. When inside the chalet we were looked after by Beth and Kate superbly. Nothing was too much trouble, and every need was catered without feeling like it was over the top. The place was kept immaculately clean, and the meals were not only supremely tasty, they were beautifully presented too. I have been on many chalet holidays, but none like this. They certainly live up to the name, VIP.

    We arrived at Dakota Lodge on Sunday 9 Feb, where a warm greeting from our chalet hosts Kate and Beth awaited. The skiing was fabulous and there is still plenty of unexplored territory awaiting further visits! This is our first experience in a catered chalet and we most definitely want to repeat it! The chalet was comfortable and having a hot tub to soothe aching muscles was fab! Beth and Kate were outstanding hosts. The food was amazing every day and nothing was ever too much trouble. The thought and trouble taken by them, to create a special ambiance for Valentine's Evening was truly wonderful and I know that all the guests were as impressed as Ian and I. Kate and Beth were personable, informative and fun and we will miss them! We will certainly be back to enjoy another adventure!

    This review is intended to represent what Kate and Beth do - enjoy themselves and surprise and delight their guests. On valentines night, Kate and Beth went a bit nuts. We all got together as usual and drank a few glasses of good stuff, then they cagily suggested we should pop out of the dining room until 8pm - maybe 10-15 minutes. We grabbed a bottle from the carrefour down the hill and adjourned outside, using the bathroom waste paper basket as an ice bucket and the electricity meter as a stand for the booze. Hilarity ensued - check pictures ;-) When we got back, I deftly pressed the light button on the stairs - d'oh' - we then waited 10 mins for the lights to go off again before we popped up. What awaited us was a valentines treat - the guys put candles everywhere, and themed the evening to valentines day. The cheese board included themed cheesy chat up lines which led to a truly excellent evening including the epic line "roses are red, violets are blue, I've got a gun, get in the van". Check the pictures for details -

    Food - wicked. Attention to detail straight cold excellent. My tea in the mornings still has the bag in, just like I asked. I've read "zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance", and Kate and Beth know what Quality (with a capital Q) is. Combined with the best conditions I've ever seen in an alps resort, this is an unbeatable holiday. We've stayed with VIP in meribel before: the location of the chalet and the service levels here in morzine mean we may well use this as a go-to option each year.

    Excellent. The chalet is located very near to the Pleney and Super Morzine lifts which makes getting up into the mountains super-quick and very easy. Our chalet hosts, Luke & Beth, were great, providing us with great food, plentiful wine and lots of hints and tips on how to get the best out of our stay in Morzine (i.e. where the best bars are ;-) We made some great new friends in the chalet and just had a ball. The rooms were smaller than your website imagery suggested but the beds were very comfy and the bathrooms more than adequate too. The proximity of the lifts to the chalet really made up for any short-comings that the chalet itself may have had. Overall, we thought it was excellent and would happily return. If you can just do something about the fickle Morzinoise snow falls...

    Morzine is a fab resort with more than enough to keep you entertained at all levels. It certainly tires you and it's lovely to come back to chalet Dakota for some cake and Beth and Luke's warm hospitality. They're both so friendly and easy to talk to and they both made our stay very comfortable. It's quite sad to leave them actually. I'm sure that this is said often but these really are the BEST CHALET HOSTS EVER. and the dinners just kept getting better. Just when you thought that they'd outdone themselves they'd do it again. Thanks Beth, Luke and VIP ski.

    Thoroughly enjoyed all Morzine and surrounding area had to offer. We experienced the best and the worst of the weather (perfectly groomed slopes with clear blue skies, and total near total whiteout in mogul field), and enjoyed every moment. Writing this on the final evening of our stay, my body will testify that I extracted every drop of energy from it. Making sure we were looked after ever day; fuelled up in the mornings, supplied with tea/coffee and cakes in the afternoon, and truly wonderful meals (and wine!) in the evenings, were two of the loveliest people we've met - Beth and Luke. From the first greeting when we arrived, to showing off the 1ft diameter cookie this morning, they've been wonderful hosts - always eager to do whatever is necessary to make the holiday special (ie, extra bits of food when they learn what your favourites are!!!!). The chalet itself is exactly what you'd expect - comfortable rooms, nice toiletries, big hot tub, sauna, boot room with warmers, big dining table, balcony, lots of sofas, and TV/DVD etc. 10/10 for service, resort, chalet hosts, food... Just everything :) A Big thanks to VIP Ski, and an especially big thanks to Beth and Luke!!!

    This is my first chalet experience. I have really enjoyed it- it's great not having to think about what or where to eat after a long day skiing. Luke and Beth our chalet hosts have been very welcoming and great fun! The chalet was alway kept clean and tidy and the food was excellent. There was only 8 of us in a 12 person chalet- but I'm not sure where another 4 would have fitted. We managed to spread ourselves out comfortably. I would definitely recommend this company and this chalet due to its proximity to the lifts and standard of furnishings etc. thanks again to Luke and Beth for looking after us so well.

    Our chalet was really gorgeous, incredibly cosy with a traditional feel, just what you want for a ski holiday. We had the top bedroom which was massive, with bundles of charm and a huge bathroom-all spotlessly clean. Only downside was that the room wasn't sound proof so if people were in the lounge it would disturb you. Beth and Luke the chalet hosts were the most delightful couple, couldn't do enough for us and made wonderful meals and cakes every day, very hard working and kind people, thank you very much! xx

    Everyone agreed it was a great holiday, our vegetarians were particularly impressed with the food; the spa service was also used by some of the group, who found it to be very good especially as it came to the chalet. The atmosphere in the chalet added to the enjoyment of the holiday due to the friendly and efficient, but not intrusive, chalet hosts. We will certainly be looking at holidays with VIP in the future.

    Given my rating, you may be surprised that i wouldn't stay in Dakota again - but this is only because I rated CLUB Bellevarde in Val D'Isere even more highly, and I think this was largely because of the extra level of luxury you get with a club chalet. My group would most certainly book with you again. We've had two really good holidays now, but there were a few small issues with Dakota. Only small though! Firstly, the WiFi was really hit and miss. Also, Dakota, while really comfy in general felt a little squashed when all 12 people were in the living room area - and the beds in the twin rooms were really close! But the overall standards of furniture and fittings - and the atmosphere - is so good that it didn't really affect our enjoyment. These are niggles. Overall, VIP Ski is a very well run company and the chalets always live up to expectations. Keep up the good work!
