My friend and I visited the town to join some other ski mates, and largely chose this hotel for its proximity to the ski lift. Turned out to be a real winner: perfect location, an excellent lobby area for drinks at reasonable prices, good food, perfectly decent rooms with a nice balcony view onto the mountain, and outstandingly friendly staff...

We had a very nice time here. Les Contamines is a brilliant ski resort - excellent snow, long runs, short queues - and this is just about as close to the lift as you could wish for. Very nice ambience at the hotel, excellent, friendly staff, comfortable and clean rooms and lovely and quiet for a good nights sleep. When... More

Great location, 2 mins walk from Les Contamines ski hill. Small, cozy and clean. Loved all the staff, very friendly, polite and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Only went to the restaurant once for dinner as plenty of local options to try. Dinner was good and they suggested a wine which was delicious. Parking right... More

This place was a real treat. I was looking forward to the outdoor swimming pool but at 4 degrees Celsius the water was too cold for me. But the Jacuzzi was a nice second choice. We were in room 107 which was an obstructed view so we moved to 111 which was great. It had full body jets in the... More

Stayed here for a week on a walking 'package' holiday with HF. The hotel is run efficiently and effectively by the family owners who give it a truly personal touch. Rooms large and comfortable, balconies with great views. Plenty of lovely food, French country cooking, well made, generous portions, good value dinner and large buffet breakfasts with plenty of choice.... More

We stayed at the La Chemenaz for a week - used it as a base for hiking around and in the French Alps. A nice hotel for families' hikers and nature seekers. The Hotel is nice, clean; the team at the desk - friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast (and a good restaurant for dinner). The only disadvantage - the hotel... More

Truly wonderful . A warm welcome . Fabulous room . Lovely swimming pool then into the jacuzzi to relax the legs . A sociable bar area where lone travellers could be included. Excellent food. I must mention the receptionist Julie , she couldn't have been more helpful . We only stayed here one night on the TMB but I can't... More

While on the tour we spent a night at this hotel in Les Contamines just outside of town but still on the trail. Very friendly staff, clean comfortable rooms and an excellent restaurant with very good food, a luxury while on the trail.

We picked the hotel using Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The hotel is about a mile outside of town, which after a long day's hike was somewhat of a disappointment, but once we got there and settled in we understood that the extra effort was worth it. One pointer to the novice hiker; the hotels all expect you to... More

We stayed here on the 2nd night of our very wet TMB (8 of 11 days rained…or snowed) and that really makes you appreciate the boot drying room (aka the ski room). We were able to leave wet stuff in a space that was large enough to accommodate lots of wet gear, space is pretty limited in some locations, esp.... More
