    Overall we had a great week at Dakota Lodge. This is our 5th time with VIP (when do we start getting loyalty points?) so we know what to expect. We booked room 6 early for the extra space but wasn't expecting the mezzanine location over the kitchen/lounge/dining area which made it very noisy. The bathroom was lovely and spacious but a shelf in the shower would be useful for shampoo etc. The chalet staff were great and it was particularly nice to have a slightly more mature host in Adam who seemed to know the 'higher end' recommendations when it came to dining out and was very knowledgeable about the resort and snow conditions. The chalet food was, as usual, very good but almost too plentiful and every few nights it would have been nice to be offered simply a lasagne and salad or similar instead of another 4 course meal. Despite the few minor negatives I'm sure we will be back but I'm serious about the loyalty scheme....

    It was our second time to the Dakota lodge, and it was once again a great time was had by all. Our hosts, Adam and Kath were at tentative and friendly no matter what hour of the day, and nothing was ever too much for them. The chalet itself was well maintained, and nothing felt like it was done on a budget. One area to look at fo potential improvement was the return leg of our journey, from resort back to the uk. Upon arrival at Geneva airport, we arrived with what looked like every Vip coach from every resort at the same time. This made the check in queues very long and trying. The rather frustrating part of this however was when we reached the desk, no one in our party of 4 (2 couples) were able to sit anywhere near each other on the plane. After speaking with a few others, it turns out that we were not the only ones his happened to. Aer Lingus need to do better here. But his has not detracted from the wonderful time we all had once again.

    Both Rebekah and I would like to just say a huge thank you to VIP and their staff for a superb and well thought out service, and for making our annual trip to the Alps simply faultless. From the moment we were picked up at the airport, VIP made our experience perfect. From the friendly greeting, fabulous food, amazing chalet, and the simple but highly appreciated cup of coffee delivered to our room each morning; everything has been brilliant! Just a very well organised holiday and delivered efficiently and professionally, but also with a personal touch. We would also like to say a special thank you to Adam and Kathryn, our Chalet Hosts, who worked long hours but always with a warm welcome and 'happy to do anything' attitude. The service delivered and food they rustled up was well beyond expectations (and we own a hotel!), and we cannot praise them enough. Thanks very much again, and we look forward to many more alpine trips in the future using only VIP Ski as our operator of choice. Kind regards. Michael and Rebekah Grimes.

    Great Staff Shame about the Chalet

    I have been on many chalet holidays with VIP Ski (and before that Snowline) and the Dakota Lodge is by far the worst accommodation that I have experienced. My 15 year old son and I stayed in Room 1 a twin room with just enough room to get two single beds in. I think the room must have previously experienced a flood because the carpet was spoiled and the room smelt very stale and dank. Half the light bulbs in the room did not work making the room very gloomy. in fact the whole chalet was very poorly lit and gloomy. VIP describe the chalet as cosy which must mean claustrophobic and dingy. Kate Ashton says the Dakota Chalet has everything she wants from a chalet...which can't be very much and surely she has never been charged over £4k for one weeks stay in a dingy smelly room. Despite the poor quality of the accommodation the saving grace for the chalet was the excellent hosts Catherine and Adam. The hospitality was first class, nothing was too much trouble for them and the catering was excellent. If I was rating the staff I would give five stars but the accommodation would only get one star, hence an overall rating of three stars. I have recommended VIP to friends many times and would do again (but not the Dakota Lodge). I probably would use VIP again as long as you don't let Kate Ashton do the write up of the premises.

    Thank you for your honesty and for your custom over the last 7 years. We are extremely sorry that you found our service lacking in many respects on this occasion and apologise unreservedly. We have spoken and written personally outside of this posting and hope to welcome you back next year so that we can prove to you that this was an isolated experience and that you can, once again, value us as a ‘great company’ and also continue to trust us to take care of your winter ski holidays.

The resort itself seemed to cater for all tastes although we didn't go out too often (the food, drinks and company in the chalet were far to good!) All in all a wonderful experience and we have already identified next years venue with VIP.

    Great week at the Dakota lodge, plenty of snow and almost perfect weather. The lodge is superb, if a little cosy for 12. Kathryn and Adam did a super job ensuring we were superbly fed and watered and then fed again, and they coped with the different priorities of a mixed group very well. The lodge is one of 3 in the building, which perhaps wasn't completely clear at the time of booking, so sharing a boot room with another 16-18 people was fun! All in all a super stay, fantastic location and a brilliant week

    Lovely chalet and Jess and Kathryn looked after us brilliantly. They were particularly good with our two young and rather boistrous children! My only comment would be that I would have been more comfortable if we had been able to deadlock the main door from the inside at night (with the hosts having a key so they are not locked out in the morning!), especially as we were sleeping on the ground floor. Thank you for a great holiday. We will definitely be back.

    We have enjoyed a very special time here in Morzine greatly enhanced by Jess and Katheryn who have been superb. They have provided us with delicious meals, a lovely wake up cuppa each day, always chatty and helpful. They have given the children a really special time and gone beyond the call of duty. They are 2 multi talented girls. The chalet has provided us all with good accommodation and the hot tub has been a great bonus. Beds very comfortable, bedrooms not large but adequate. Comfortable and pleasant living area. Balcony door could benefit from being repaired as quite chilly sitting at dining table sometimes. We would certainly come back to Morzine and would be keen to use VIP again. It has been a great week.

    We stayed with Family in Dakota Lodge to celebrate a 40th birthday. We had an amazing time, the food was excellent and our chalet hosts Kathryn and Jess could not have done more to make us feel at home and were also great fun. I am a latecomer to skiing and such, a nervous skier and always a bit hesitatant about skiing holidays, usually semi reluctantly following my skiing mad husband. However I have had an absolutely brilliant time in Morzine with VIP SKI. I can honestly say that this holiday has spectacularly exceeded my expectations - we are already making plans to return to VIP SKI in Morzine next year.

The baggage was collected and delivered to our room and a good briefing on the entire resort was given on the transfer bus. The chalet is everything that was promised but the nice surprise were the chalet girls who are classic "can do" friends to the holiday makers.

    We have had a lovely week in Morzine, as always it's a real treat not to have to cook and clean, however just a few little niggly things as there is always room for improvement..........it would have been lovely to have had Christmas tree lights on the Christmas tree, hand soap for the bathroom basins would have been pleasant, (it arrived on the last day), kitchen washing up in the evenings after supper, very noisy, can't hear the television or chat, sharing the boot/ski room with 2 other chalets was not ideal, a helmet and gloves were "borrowed" before we got to them in the morning, on separate days, there weren't enough roast potatoes to go round on Christmas Day, I didn't have any! and not enough bacon for breakfast one morning. Having said all that, Jess and Katherine were lovely, and nothing was too much trouble, we realise we were their first week of the season and a certain amount of trial and error is normal, but the week is expensive for a family of 4 so I don't like to feel we've missed out on anything. We have been clients since 2009 and it won't stop us from returning.

    Excelent resort and well trained staff who were engaging and attentive. Tom the resort manager made sure thing ran well against a background of difficult logistics whilst the drivers manfully ensured all movements were on time with good humour and a cheery attitude. The Chalet hosts struck a great balance between being attentive, fun and engaging with the whole party from the children to the adults. Food was excellent and Christmas Day was a great relaxing affair for all the guests despite electricity issues. The down side was the boot room which is too small and often had people taking the wrong gear. That and the contrary electrics plus the loss of hot water had dropped the gloss from what was otherwise a great holiday. Cannot praise the staff enough and am sure that the mechanical things can be resolved.

    Well it just goes to show that even when there is very little snow, that VIP rise to the challenge. Nothing was too much trouble and the amount of miles that the VIP team had to drive to ensure we had a good ski was much appreciated. Good food, excellent hosts getting into their stride during their first week of guests and a truly fabulous Christmas holiday - snow or no snow! Now for the even better ifs, but please be reassured that these things didn't ruin our holiday. I think their worth mentioning because we are a pretty easy going family but I can imagine others might not have been OK about some of this. Even better ifs.......... Segregate the boot room into different chalets as lost items were a bit stressful. Organise snow boot racks at entrance to save the inevitable mess. Provide soap in each bathroom. Make sure every one gets roast potatoes at Christmas dinner. Felt a bit sorry for the girls when the dishwasher wouldn't work and it wasn't great with no hot water for a day as the boiler wasn't working properly. Would have been nice if the Christmas tree had lights.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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".

So heart shaped cakes to mouths, m'lads And raise the glasses higher, To Kate and Beth, chalet of the week, Most famous "secret admirers"

    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

Oven door closure not working properly, dishwasher only had a single 1 and a half hour cycle programme, staff had to use an additional fridge 2 floors below as kitchen fridge had insufficient storage Positives. Helpful staff especially as the airline had lost our bags, food good , clean chalet Would return!!!

    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.

    Excellent holiday. However, baggage took so long to arrive on the carousel and then bags came out one at a time! Further frustration when Meteor meet and greet took 48 minutes to deliver our car. Both of these were out of your control and we'd had such a lovely time we've put these small niggles at the back of our minds...

    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!
