We travelled as a group of friends after having previously stayed at Hotel Macchi some years ago. We had been happy enough with the hotel to book again. The hotel is much improved and it is clear that M.Macchi is investing time effort and money in these improvements. In particular the restaurant is excellent-both for the half board dinners and...

We stayed at the Macchi five years ago and thought it a better-than-average 3* hotel (which it was at the time). Returning to Chatel, five years on, and rebooking at the Macchi, we were delighted with the many improvements since our last visit. The hotel is now 4* and we found the restaurant excellent, with M. Macchi extremely accommodating at... More

The hotel is pleasant although a little tired. The rooms are ok but not very large. The shocker was the restaurant where we had our worst ever meal in France, with one main course being returned twice. They insisted we pay for the food saying that other people had eaten it. Never again.

Really good family run hotel with friendly staff and good food. To be recommended to anyone wishing to stay in a hotel whilst visiting the ports du soleil. Great location in the centre of town with easy access to the lifts.

We will be back! Great place to stay when you're on skiing holiday in the Alps at Chatel, Portes du Soleil! Great skiing area! Altough it is a 10 minute walk to the nearest skilift....but you can also take the shuttle from the Hotel Macchi! Nice staff!

A nice hotel in the center of Chatel. Close to a fantastic ski area. Good service, nice personnel. Very good food. Not big, just 30 rooms. You can make the rental of ski gear inside the hotel, very convenient. Negative was the shuttle for the skiing in the morning and afternoon we have seen much more flexible and frequent example.

Too often, ski hotels are complacent: banking on the fact they have a good location and do not need to try. Hotel Macchi was a pleasant surprise. While it is well situated in the centre of Chatel, it was a very nice hotel. The staff were friendly and willing to help; the bar was cosy; the facilities (pool, jacuzzi, sauna,... More

Dear Ruppert, The fact you booked through booking.com misled you. Don’t hesitate to book directly with us (on our website or by phone) to be sure to get the adapted rooms, corresponding to your attempts (without forgetting to mention a free glass of champagne on your day of arrival). We really enjoy the fact you liked our SPA, we try... More

Hotel macchi is a cut above the normal ski hotels I've experienced. Great facilities including a pool and spa and the staff are incredibly helpful. We needed some help with an injured member of our family and the hotel owner went and collected them as the taxis were all busy. The bar is nice, the restaurant good (but not cheap)... More

Dear Greig, We hope that the injured person feels better now. We like to think to our clients as an extension of our own family. We would be pleased to welcome you again (with no injury this time!!!) More

Paying 360 Euro for one night, seemed a bit overpriced, given the small room and even smaller bathroom (without towels until we asked for it). The hotel has a great lounge area with fireplace and absolutely one of the better things about the hotel. The staff in both the resturant and bar was friendly and very helpfull, whereas the reception... More

The Hotel is well located in the middle of Chatel. The hotel is a good size, large enough to have great facilities but small enough to make it feel personal. The bedroom was small but clean and comfortable, it was cleaned twice a day, once during the day and again whilst we were having dinner. The staff couldn't have done... More
