We stayed here over the UK Bank holiday at the end of May. It's beautifully poised on the hillside overlooking Samoëns. Incidentally, to find it drive straight into town, then when you hit the 'no entry' sign at a bank, turn left, back up the hill. The hotel has a lovely lounge, and our room was clean, nice with a...

Having read previous reviews, i thought I would post my own review. When you book a 2* hotel, you don't expect too much. We wanted a base for our 3 night ski break. Yes, the hotel is up a steep road but was no problem as our ski hire shop,ski-loc,had lockers meaning we could leave skis and boots at the... More

I felt constrained to write a review on this little place, having just returned from a very agreeable four night stay. Many of the reviews do not accord with my experience at all. I am inclined to think that some peoples' expectations of what to expect from a two star hotel may be a little unrealistic. On the downside, the... More

My wife and I stayed there for one night in February. As late bookers we were not given one of the best rooms but it was quite adequate, clean and functional. We found that the double bed was small but, to be fair, we are used to a King size bed. The staff were both helpful and friendly and, contrary... More

Comfortable but the rooms are basic and small for the money. It is also a 25 min walk into the village (up a big hill on the way back). It may also may be worth noting that the staff speak no English at all and none of the instructions in the room (for the safe ect) are in English. We... More

We booked for the 1st time a mountain hotel in france from Jan. 1st to 6th, 2013. We used to go to many different mountain hotels in Austria and Italy (South Tirol). All 2 star hotels were not only cheaper then this one but also much much nicer. The room is SMAL 3m by 3m. The carpet is very ugly... More

We stopped at the Hotel Edelweiss just for one night on our way to Chamonix. It was a last minute decision and one we were very glad of too! The owner of the Hotel was very helpful and welcoming. Our family room was very pretty (typical mountain chalet room with a maisonette) and clean. Also, the view from our balcony... More

I stayed here in march with some friends as a base to ski in the grand massif. The hotel was warm and welcoming. Our twin room was clean with great views of the mountains, and a lovely balcony. The food in the evenings was much better than expected for a 2 star hotel, although during our stay the restaurant was... More

We had a room where the outside wall was one big window. This gave us a great view of the mountains and we were woken up by the explosions from the pisteurs (to trigger avalanches). This way you know there is fresh snow and that makes you get up faster. Breakfast and other food is great. A lot of localls... More

I would like to write an informative review of this hotel but because our flight was delayed we were unable to stay. The hotel was most unhelpful, we called to let them know that we would be arriving late (around midnight) and were told that there was "no solution" to leaving a key or finding an alternative hotel. They were... More
