My husband and I recently stayed here while doing the Tour de Mont Blanc hike. The hotel was clean and comfortable but the food was terrible. I wouldn't recommend doing the half board option which includes breakfast and dinner.

Really impressed with the family friendly accommodation: two rooms with shared hall and balcony with fab views of glacier and mountains. Evening set menu outstanding: four delicious and varied courses. Staff very helpful accommodating our children's preferences.

I must say I was surprised to read some of the other reviews. I stayed here in the dortoir with my brother during our TMB trek. Perhaps I need to up my standards?? My experience of the staff was that they were very friendly and helpful. One of the staff in the restaurant had been to Dublin for six months... More

The dorms were OK, but I expected more, given that this is a hotel, and not a mountain refuge, so they can probably make it not as crowded. The food was decent, but we had better almost everywhere else. They might have a laundry service, but they didn't advertise it (we saw a clothes basket at the reception in the... More

Walking the tmb, not impressed by this unfriendly, un welcoming hotel, staff will do everything to ignore you... Dinner was ok, breakfast very decent. Rooms are basic, fine for the price. Happy to leave Switzerland though, as they are so rude and un welcoming.

I would have given this a "terrible" rating but the food was tasty. Otherwise, the room was nothing special, in fact, it might have well been a refuge and certainly not a hotel. The towels were paper thin, the beds tiny singles, my roommate had a broken light above her bed, and the showers were shared down the hall. The... More

Stayed here on our TMB walk. On arriving at the hotel the woman was unfriendly and rude as was the man who checked us out. After having spoken with locals they informed us that this hotel has a reputation for rudeness. If you stay here don't expect any hospitality. Having said this, restaurant staff was good.

Bare essentials in the rooms with very thin bath towels and our TV didn't have a remote. At least the mattress was firm enough and the room relatively clean. Breakfast was adequate but not inspiring and service pretty much the same. It just didn't seem to have the atmosphere that most of the other places on our TMB walk had,... More

Our room was spacious. Although the decor was dated, it was adequate as we were only here for one night on the way through on the TMB. There was a nice attached dining room. Overall, We found other places in Switzerland on the TMB that were better value.

Great location in La Fouly. Check in was not great, myself and a French man arrived at the same time and the stress was too much for the receptionist who got very flustered. We were shown to the boot room and then eventually to our room. We had an en suite with hairdryer and body wash. TV and safe in... More
