The Plein Sud is an informal, friendly and well-managed three star hotel. Many of the staff are English speaking and the rooms are basic but comfortable, clean and tidy. There is a good bar; a restaurant/dining room that serves a decent 'menu du soir' and some spa facilities (pool and steam room). The hotel is situated just behind one of the main streets of Chantemerle with its shops, bars and restaurants and is just 5 minutes walk away from the main Gondola station. The hotel offers complimentary Wi-Fi internet connection for guests.
The hotel bar is the ideal location for an apres ski drink or two. Open to residents and non-residents all day from 8am to midnight, the bar is well stocked with recognised brands as well as those you may not have heard of. On leaving the restaurant after dinner why not stop by for an end the day digestive of the local speciality, Genepi. Alternatively there is a fine selection of whiskies to satisfy any taste. For the early birds who need a bit of fortification before hitting the slopes hot drinks including tea and coffee are available from the bar. Lunchtime sees the bar offer a range of bar snacks and refreshments including 'vin chaud' and hot chocolate to bring feeling back into tired limbs.
Guests staying in the upper floor rooms can catch the last of the afternoon sunshine (Serre Chevalier gets on average 300 days of sunshine a year) and also watch the last of the day's skiers and boarders make it down the famous Luc Alphand piste for a well deserved apres ski drink.
All south facing rooms are equipped with their own en-suite bathroom with hair-dryer, as well as a mini-bar, satellite TV, direct-dial telephone with self wake-up call facilities and a safe. Towelling robes and swimming towels are provided for clients use during their stay.
The Plein Sud offers great value in the very underrated resort. The staff are friendly and the hotel delivers as long as you are not expecting anything too luxurious. Good old friendly hospitality.
