We didn't stay here but read the restaurant reviews on a local Billboard "Best Burgers" and "Missing the food already". "Best food in the region"... apparently.. We booked for our wedding anniversary just after Christmas. The restaurant was empty with the exception of one other couple. The food looked good but wasn't hot, it's not like the staff were busy....

Overpriced for what you get, expected more for the price tag and not quite 3* star BUT It's got a large heated pool and a good dining area. Breakfast was adequate and included bacon and eggs. We didn't have an evening meal there as they don't start serving until 7pm (normal for most French restaurants). The rooms were adequate and... More

Although the hotel is conveniently located near the Ski Station and the small village one can tell that the current management is doing the bare minimum to keep it running. The reception lady (Nahalie) is very good and helpful but not much more she can do given the lack of staff, especially around the High Season when the hotel should... More

Nice enough hotel with a bit of “faulty Towers” about it (in the nicest possible way) Run and owned by a pleasant English man but staff seemed ‘confused’. Hotel has an outside pool (and also inside pool) which was nice and clean to cool down in after a long flight. Nice outdoor bar area within hotel for relaxing. Breakfast and... More

Nice clean room- wonderful restaurant- Helpful staff. Got a pass to go on the bus to Chamonix to go see Mont-Blanc. We had an upper floor room which was great because you could see some of the scenery. Also, we could walk to the city center easily. So, we walked around this beautiful town. Beautiful flowers everywhere. Breakfast included.

Lovely hotel for the family. We stayed two nights here. The staff was very helpful and provided us a lift within town. The restaurant was good. We enjoyed the lounge. Our kids loved the indoor heated swimming pool.

Recently returned from a four night stay. Friendly staff, an obvious enthusiasm to please, made to feel very welcome. Rooms are not huge, but certainly comfortable, nice balcony, some fixtures a little worn, but that's just "character". Breakfast good spread and constantly being re-filled. Excellent evening meals in Caprice restaurant (reviewed elsewhere as it deserves a review in it's own... More

Very good hotel located below Mont Blanc and so is ideally located for exploring the Mont Blanc range. The hotel is owned by and Englishman and all the staff spoke perfect english. For some of the travellers with me the evening meal was a disappointment but I really enjoyed it so would definitely recommend the food. The hotel also has... More

We were not at Les Houche for the skiing. We stopped at the Hotel du Bois on the day before we started our Tour du Mont Blanc walking holiday. There was an extremely friendly welcome from English-speaking Nathalie. She was uncommonly helpful in finding out the weather and in giving helpful tips. This was particularly useful as there was rain,... More
