Ski guest testimonials

Here's what some of our guests have had to say about their stay in a Scott Dunn chalet:

Lodge Danube, St Anton - Sheldon, March 2018

With out a doubt, the best ski vacation ever. I work in the hospitality industry and can honestly say from start to finish, the service was faultless. The combination of friendly smiling staff, superb food and attention to detail made for a spectacular break.

Chalet Jupiter, Val d’Isère - Bray, March 2018

"As one of the children said, 'this is actually my best vacation ever!', they also said 'skiing is now my best sport!'. I don't think we had any idea exactly what was entailed in a Scott Dunn ski trip but it was THE best way for the children to embark on their first ski vacation. Not only was the chalet itself total luxury, but it was all the extras, like someone taking you to the ski shop and even more amazingly, taking you to the slopes and back every day, someone sorting your passes out for you and all the lessons.

We felt tremendously lucky with the totally delightful chalet staff who really made our vacation. All the hassle had been taken out of the trip and all there was left to do was ski! It was such a huge treat for Xavier and I as well. We were very, very lucky with the weather too, which always helps.

It was truly the most amazing week, we felt like the luckiest people in the world and will cherish the memories from what was the ultimate family vacation. Thank you, THANK YOU so much for your generosity and for the way that you all- Scott Dunn staff here in he UK as well as in Val d'Isère - always go the extra mile to help and make things easier. We have all become the biggest Scott Dunn fans and will always recommend your vacations heartily!"

Lodge Christoph, St Anton - Yendell, February 2018

I have to congratulate the chalet team, who were able to balance professional and personal; not an easy combination. The attention to detail was outstanding, and there were a number of personal touches which made our vacation. The whole team were fantastic, and I would highlight Max and Ainye as outstanding. As my first SD vacation, and as an individual who expects but appreciates a high standard, I feel this has been comfortably met and in places even exceeded, so I congratulate the whole team. Based on my experience this week, I would absolutely recommend SD, and I am interested in exploring summer options going forwards. I feel that the experience myself and the family received justifies the premium price - that is what I wanted.

Chalet Artemis, St Anton - Rose, February 2018

It was a special week with old friends, renewing our marriage vows and the staff went over and above any expectations to make the week and the day itself very special. Also, lots of varying dietary requirements all dealt with and the meals prepared by TJ were remarkable bearing in mind the limitations. Everyone was so lovely, friendly and obliging throughout the week. It felt like nothing was too much trouble and the staff seemed determined to ensure we had a lovely time. It was a very special vacation for the group - and we felt immensely pampered and well looked after by the team. It was just the tonic we all needed (and nearly didn't need the gin to go along with it). Chalet amazing, staff fantastic, food wonderful, cinema and pool great for kids and adults alike.

Chalet Artemis, St Anton - Hudson, January 2018

"April was very helpful during the transfers & sorting out all of our specific requirements. The chalet is lovely, facilities are amazing and we were really well looked after. The food was really beautiful. I was hosting clients who are used to being taken to excellent central London restaurants & they were all raving about how superb the food was. The menu was diverse yet also felt very tailored to our needs & in particular the puddings really delighted everyone, that were truly beautiful."

Chalet Alice, Val d’Isère - Young, January 2018

"The staff have been brilliant. Laura and Elizaveta in the chalet have been a joy to be around, warm, welcoming and flexible in hosting our family with small children! Laura's food has been consistently excellent all week. She made tasty and healthy food for the boys and wonderful dishes for us - her cakes are to die for! Elizaveta has been very welcoming, a true host. She is a pleasure on both a personal and professional level. She identified and remembered our individual requirements (e.g. who has tea, who drinks coffee, who mentioned on day 1 that they don't like anchovies and most touchingly, that it was our wedding anniversary on the day we left and between her and Laura made us Mexican Wedding Cookies for our afternoon tea - just another example of the lovely touches we've been pleased and lucky to experience). Zara was our youngest son's nanny. Nothing was too much trouble for her and it was so lovely to see the bond she and our son formed. She did lots of fun activities with him both in the chalet and outside, including taking him to the farm to see the animals, to the soft play center and out and about to meet other babies. We'll really miss her. Charlotte and Emma looked after our toddler at Kids' club. Emma sent us pictures every day and kept us up to date on how he was getting on. We were really pleased with how much he enjoyed his time there and have loved seeing his artwork at the end of the week."

Lodge Adler, St Anton - Paton, January 2018

"Very impressed with everything Scott Dunn. My first experience and your reputation is deserved I would put two ticks against excellent if it were possible! The chalet was spotless, the staff exceptional and the food was incredible. A really exclusive trip and great value. Magic! The car service drivers - always helpful and cheerful. Our chef - the best pork belly we’ve ever tasted and the chalet staff for just about everything else that made this the best ski vacation I’ve ever been on! You delivered! On all levels! Nothing was too much trouble and everything was delivered in a professional and cheerful manner."

Chalet Nepenthe, Val d’Isère - Muldoon, January 2018

"Daisy was a dream chef and host. The food she prepared was excellent and it can't have been easy cooking a different meal for the children every day also. Daisy had just the right level of interaction with us. She was so friendly and approachable. The children loved her and so did we. We will judge every other host in the future against Daisy. Everything is made so easy by the team and the whole set up from arranging the ski passes and the ski equipment hire to having a driver available at all times is extremely attractive, especially when taking children skiing."

Chalet Papillon, Val d’Isère - Waterfield, January 2018

"George is an amazing chef and his meals were superb. His cakes are legendary, we would encourage an entry into 'Bake Off', they were devoured by us all. Ellie was always so positive and nothing was too much trouble, from assisting us in the mornings, making endless teas and ensuring any question was answered. Any request was always met with a smile. Ellie also showcased a masterclass in napkin folding. We have been thoroughly looked after, very professional and an exceptional property."

Chalet Face, Val d’Isère - Lancaster, January 2018

"Meg and Nico were very friendly and exceptionally professional. They were both clearly very passionate about providing an excellent service and this made our experience all the more enjoyable. Meg's hospitality was unparalleled and we thoroughly enjoyed her company and her fantastic table decorations. The quality of Nico's food was spectacular and reflected his passion for cooking. He went out of his way to cater for our dietary requirements and I thought he struck the right balance between creativity and simplicity. The pork belly was the best I've ever had and we thoroughly enjoyed the duck breast, chicken, ribeye steak and coffee pudding in particular. Meg and Nico worked exceptional well together as a team and we couldn't possibly fault their service. 10/10. The reliability of the Scott Dunn experience has made every ski vacation we have had over the past few years a special occasion for my family. "

Chalet Husky, Val d’Isère - Hetherington, December 2017

"Staff were exceptional - nothing was too much trouble. Impressed we were helped with our skis to the run to join the ski school from Nepenthe. Feels like a vacation. Come back rested. Everyone's needs are taken care of. Parents can rest or get on with skiing and children can enjoy what they enjoy with a good balance of time spent together as a family. All the hassle of ski vacation is taken care of - duty driver, chef and nannying help with skis excellent transfer etc."
