La Chemanaz is in the hamlet of La Lay at the southern end of Les Contamines. We stayed there on the second night of our Tour du Mont Blanc walking holiday. This establishment, and every other in the hamlet, seems to be aimed at bringing in money from skiers. There were some very good points, bud some bad ones too... More

This hotel is a unique mixture of being very comfortable, with great facilities and a wonderful restaurant AND being very very family, and trekker friendly. Can't recommend it highly enough. The staff can't do enough to help either - can't wait to return

Located just outside of Les Contamines in Le Lay, the hotel enjoys a very peaceful location, has a pool and seated terrace area which is very pleasant. Rooms were decent sized and had a balcony overlooking the mountains. There is very little going on in the area around this hotel, it was fine for us as we were continuing with... More

My husband and I stayed here one night on the 2nd day of our Tour du Mont Blanc hike. Even though we arrived a bit late in the evening after a long day of hiking, we were warmly welcomed. We enjoyed a wonderful, multi-course meal in the lounge as the dining room was closed. We were staying half-board and breakfast... More

Stayed here one night at the start of Tour du Mont Blanc hike on a half board basis. We were quickly ushered out when we arrived in reception just because we were wearing hiking gear. Rooms and food were good. However we were charge 16 euro for 1 single measure of Remy Martin!!!

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
