We stayed here for 4 nights for a skiing break in half term week during February 2015. The hotel is comfortable and whilst the rooms and decor are a bit dated they do have a certain charm. There is a lovely pool and we thought the food was excellent. The staff were also excellent throughout, really friendly and helpful and... More

Just back from a 3 night stay at Hotel du Bois. Really clean, comfortable and staff were really helpful. The hotel is about a 10/15 minute walk to Les Houches centre and a 5 minute bus ride to Chamonix (bus stop just a minutes walk from hotel. Breakfast was good, plenty of selection and good coffee! The room was cosy,... More

The hotel is warm and comfortable. Our room was quite small for three people to put it mildly. There was a very limited amount of storage and it would have been good to have had some hooks on the walls and doors for hanging coats. You need to bring your own toiletries as the soap is in an annoying dispenser.... More

We ate here a couple times when staying in a nearby chalet. Owners are wonderful, made us feel really welcome, food was excellent. Even if you don't stay here make sure you eat here if you in the area! - Jon, Ben, Tom and Kay

This is my first time in Les Houches, and thanks to du Bois, this would be definitely not a last one. Really pleasant stay. Everything was good as it might be. In winter season, nice place, near ski rental, grocery store, pharmacy and all you might need during your stay, alone or with a family. And at the same time... More

David is the star of this owner run hotel. He works very hard to make you welcome and is very knowledgeable about the area and what's on offer. Restaurant food great and friendly staff who also try to make you feel welcome. A good value for money stay if you put aside the slightly tired decor and odd issues with... More

We travelled from Paris the Les Houches to enjoy a White Christmas (it did snow just after Christmas Day). This hotel gets points for trying but never really gets there. The rooms are very dated thouh the paint spills on the paint work suggest that there had been some attempt at a makeover, the double bed was two dingoes pushed... More

We travelled from the South of France through Italy and the Mont Blanc Tunnel to Les Houches. The hotel is straightforward to find and about 10 minutes from the tunnel. Coverd car parking is available. Very friendly and helpful reception staff. Our room was on the third floor with a balcony and fantastic views of Mont Blanc. The rooms have... More
