The hotel is spacious, comfortable and well designed. The location away from the main road avoids the noise of constant traffic that thunders through the town. Staff on arrival were very friendly and helpful given how dehydrated we were from our long alpine walk. There was also a well maintained indoor pool to cool down in. Our large room had... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights on a walking holiday. Lovely location, staff and ambience. The restaurant food was good but not great. It was a pity the room we were given (a family room) was so cramped.

Located in the centre of the small village, 50m from the main road. It has a local look and feel, decorated in 'mountain' style. Friendly staff at reception. Rooms are small, a bit outdated, with darkbrown blankets. Restaurant and wellness are good. Small balcony with plastic chairs.

The hotel and the hospitality of the owners was great. We spent a night in les Gentinettes to do a hike in the mountains last weekend. This part of the Alpes is amazing. We stayed in a king size bed, which had a lovely little balcony over looking the mountains. The hotel is also very central.It was amazing. I must... More

This was our second visit and we had no qualms over returning. We first went two years ago and stayed over New Year. The food that evening was sensational and we still have fond memories of it. The purpose of both trips was skiing and this year we recommended it to friends (a family of six) who joined us. They... More

We had a rest in this hotel at the beginning of January, 2013. It was pleasant: decoration, purity, sauna and hammam. But we don't recommend this hotel. Location can be convenient only if you have a car. The pool is constantly occupied by hyper active French children. We don't advise to go to hotel restaurant: price level is exceeded, food... More
