    Thank you to the whole Meribel team for a wonderful week. The snow conditions and sunny days helped to make our week in Indiana great, but the excellent service and food from our hosts Anneka and Aiden really made it. Thanks also to the drivers for all that running about - you make a holiday in Meribel very easy indeed!

    This year was I think the 5th time I have stayed in a VIP chalet, and my experience was one of extremes. Good points first: the chalet staff were lovely. Very welcoming, friendly and pretty accomplished in the kitchen. This has always been my experience of VIP staff and is the main reason why I keep coming back. The drivers and resort manager are the same - all in all a very nice gang of people and keen to keep their customers happy. Now for the not-so good, and this is what I relayed to VIP staff in resort: The transfer was horrible. The coach was set up (as has been the case when travelling with VIP in the past) for children/very small people. My boyfriend, along with several other men on the coach were physically unable to sit in the seats without sitting sideways. I myself, at 5'3" struggled. This is ludicrous given the fact that we were all told to wear our seatbelts because of tight safety regulations. In addition, on the transfer out to the resort we were told (after leaving the airport) that the toilet was not functioning as "they don't like to turn them on in winter because of the pipes". It was 15 degrees outside. All the members of our chalet were dreading the transfer back because of the coach. My second issue which has been a recurring theme is the beds in the chalets. The mattresses are cheap and the springs protrude, so much so that one of the girls in our chalet was bruised and had to request a new mattress. All the people in our chalet commented on the lack of comfort in this respect. I feel that some relatively small investment in mattresses or at least mattress toppers would make for a much more pleasurable customer experience. Your holidays are not budget - they are sold as a luxury experience and priced accordingly. I think VIP management need to take a closer look at these 2 elements and consider whether what is currently offered is really appropriate given the price of the holiday. If you want to keep your customers there comes a point where having nice chalet staff just cannot compensate for what appears to be cost cutting in fundamental areas so I would strongly urge you to look at these issues.

    The coach provided for the transfer was cramped (legroom adequate for small children), the toilet was not functioning and it was essentially not fit for a 2.5 hour journey. We were also kept for far too long on arrival before being taken to our chalet. This is different to previous years and suggests cost cutting measures are being taken. Chalet staff and food were all excellent.

    This was the first time with VIP ski and it lived up to my expectations. Our hosts Aiden and Annika were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. In fact everyone in the team was great. For the first part of the week there were just four of us in the chalet but then we were invaded by a group of five guys who seemed to have no respect for meal times. Food was good and plenty of it. Room was clean and everything worked except they were unable to source a replacement light bulb for our bathroom.

    Amazing time @ the Indiana-lodge the hosts Anneka & Aiden were truly professional, punctual & courteous .Always there if needed but never in the way.The food they prepared was nothing short of excellent, never skimping on the wine, really a testament to vipskis training & their character? lovely guys. They were so good I returned to them the bottle of champagne I received from vipski! And we've been with many companies in Meribel(all good in general)So it takes something special to stand out this much.. Also the drivers were great too always friendly and helpful and nice to have some staff to welcome you at the airports! You've now been put on the "going back to Meribel with vipski " list. Well done all .I'll be telling everyone how good you guys are, regards Richard ,Greg,
