We have stayed at this hotel on a few occasions over the last 10 years and have always been happy with the rooms and service however on this trip the shower head would not stay in its holder and the extractor fan was broken. Both not a big deal but it was annoying that when these matters were raised at... More

Friendly staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. A 2 minute walk to the nearest bar, ski shop and Grand Montets ski lifts (ie Argentiere). At Euro135 per night including a decent breakfast it offers much better value than many of its counterparts in Chamonix (7km away) while still being super close to both Les Grand Montets and La...

We got one of the old rooms overlooking the parking lot, on the lowest floor. The ski boot heater didn't work the first night so we had to ski with wet boots. However, the service was beautiful. The front reserved a restaurants for us and were worried about the time, which shows they truly care about our experience. The spa... More

Lovely old hotel, lots of character and placed right in the middle of the town. Rooms of the front of the hotel are very very noisy, especially in-between 2 and 6am. We stayed in room 508 so top floor on the front of the hotel and it was really bad, our friends room was 208 and theirs was worse. Staff... More

Dear Dean, considering that we do not have a room 508 (we have only three floors) and that we are not in the center of Argentière (we are situated next to the Grands Montets cablecar, 10 minutes away from Argentière) , we are wondering if maybe you were talking about another hotel? We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming... More

Beautiful place to stay. Very cosy. Rooms very nice with great view. Nice swimming pool with outdoor jacuzzi ( water should be a bit warmer ). Breakfast continental only, but more than enough. Very tasty and it was our favourite part of a day :-). All staff very helpful - especially little girl at the reception and young gentlemen at... More

I had a nice stay with my son. Good location, effective service. Ok, no restaurant at evening so you need to walk to the village center ((15min walk). Not a disaster, but especially if you come with kids, it's not that convenient. Why such a poor note? Due to the last day.: We especially came a little earlier from ski... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion on your stay at Les Grands Montets. We are very sorry you left with a bitter note. Concerning the access to the spa, we effectively cannot allow clients who check out to go in, to keep the space to our arriving clients. We cannot make exception even if the spa... More

My wife organised a surprise 3 day ski trip for my birthday and we stayed at the Grand Montets. Positives first: It has an excellent location being the nearest to the lift of the same name and opposite the bus station for ski bus transfers to other parts of chamonix. It has a comfortable bar and well appointed spa. Negatives:... More
