We stayed for skiing. Great for mixed ability groups as there are a variety of slopes etc on offer. The hotel was beautifully clean every day (and I am a very fussy traveller), staff were more than friendly and efficent. There is a short walk (2mins) to bus/ train stops to get into Chamonix but once you visit the resort... More

My wife and I have stayed here twice firstly in 2010 and again this year. It's a good base for skiing with a train and bus stop only a couple of minutes from the hotel. If you have a lift pass the bus is free and ask at reception and they will issue you with an endorsed hotel travel card... More

We are not fussy travellers and this is the first review we have ever left but we felt it necessary as previous reviews are not representative. The room itself was perfectly adequate (although quite tired and dated), however every other aspect was not. We booked into the hotel restaurant on one evening only to find that everyone had been booked... More

Very relaxed and friendly. Full of French charm. Location is not a problem as it's a small walk to the nearest stop and those who've been to Chamonix before will know you have to get a bus everywhere. Small cozy bar and food is excellent. I speak very few words in French but felt very much at home with the... More

Great little place, friendly staff. Rooms clean and comfortable, the downstairs area with open fire is lovely too. The restaurant is fantastic!! Short walk to the bus stop which takes you into Chamonix or to a variety of ski fields. Would definately return here again.

During our return from UK to Italy by car, due to volcano-related flight problems, me and my colleague needed a place to connect to Internet, finish some document and have some rest for cheap. Booked with ease a couple of hours before arriving. We arrived late and found the place, the easy parking and finally room keys. Was a clean... More

We stayed for a week at the hotel and it was a good location for skiing. the short walk down the lane to the bus stop and train station were no problem, anyone who has been to chamonix will know that the resort is spread out and the buses take people up and down the valley. The train links were... More

We stayed for a week in June 2009 as part of a two centre holiday. We wanted to walk some of the Chamonix valley and get up close to Mt Blanc. The location is great as it is just a few minutes out of Chamonix on the train which provides a quick efficient service, and its all free with your... More
