Such a warm and kind welcome is rarely seen, even in the hospitality industry. Makes you feel comfy, at home, as if you were already familiar. The rooms are flawless (albeit my superior room felt a little on the small side compared to the pics), views are breathtaking, breakfast to die for (those pastries, cavolo!). Everything is just so lovely,... More

We chose this place because of its closeness to the Monte Bianco cable car station, and also because of the excellent reviews. It's a small but well-run B&B with comfortable and good-sized bedrooms each with ensuite shower room kitted out with good quality toiletries, TV and free wi-fi. We had chosen the quiet period with the skiers gone and the... More

We couldn't have been happier than to find this gem of Bed and Breakfast. Everything is just right - from the warm reception, to the comfy wood-panelled bedroom, to the contemporary bathroom with luxury fittings. The situation is fantastic to say the least, at the foot of the spectacular Mont Blanc massif, with cable cars at a stone's throw reaching... More

Our stay in this Hotel was in March 2013, nice time to visit Courmayeur, all the sorroundings were full of snow which was our intention of this visit. We arrived with a taxi from Geneve, just 2.5 hours in a nice highway, went through the Mont Blanc tunnel and inmediately you will find the hotel in a detour from the... More

I spent a week with my friends in Dente del Gigante in February 2013. The hotel location - on the mountain, the road leading to the Nationa park, approximately 3-4 km from Courmayour, close to the Mont Blanc tunnel, 16 km from Chamonix. As we had a rented car we found no problem with moving around, though close to the... More

We stayed here two nights, taking a break while on the TMB. I can't provide high enough marks for how delightful and helpful Sara and Francesca were. They did our laundry, made wonderful capacinos at b'fast and Sara even drove us back and forth across town to the Mineral Spa. We also enjoyed wine and cheese with the owner one... More

I stayed here for two nights, and by far one of the best hotels in the TMB. People were very friendly, rooms were spacious and clean with TV. It's very close to the cable car service from La Palud that takes you to top of Courmayeur and also close to nice restaurants. Sara was incredibly helpful. The breakfast spread was... More

We arrived after a few days in the mountians and found this place. The staff were wonderful and looked after us very well. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast excellent. I could not believe the value of this place. I will recommend it to anyone going near. Thank you.

The negatives first - transport isn't a forte of Courmayeur and La Palud isn't within walking distance of the centre but that's about the limit of criticism of this wonderful small hotel. There is no evening restaurant here (a fact which isn't hidden from prospective guests) but the staff could not have been more accommodating whether it came to recommending... More
