This is really a ski hotel and I imagine it's a great place to stay in the winter. I used it as a summer stop on my GR5 run. It is a mile or so out of the main old part of town and in a new and not so pretty area. Having said that there are some notable advantages.... More

Stayed for 4 nights end of second week in March 2014. Overall excellent experience. Pros: Hotel is 100m from the Montjoie gondola. For skiers, its a fantastic location. They have a ski equipment room in the basement that is easy to access - keep your gear there, then just put on your boots, grab your skis and its a short... More

We stayed here on our TMB hike - well located just off the trail and near a bus stop. Perhaps it was because we stayed at the end of the season (mid September) with only a few guests, but we felt that the hotel was missing warmth and atmosphere. Some renovation was in progress in the stairwell. The room was... More

Hotel Chemenaz was our first stop on the Tour du Mont Blanc in early July. About a mile south of the town, I must admit that its appearance was less than impressive, but the minute we stepped inside we found the facilities attractive and the service gracious and efficient. Our room was more than adequate, spotlessly clean and well appointed.... More

Beds were very comfortable and swimming pool water was perfect temperature to relax after a long days walking, but the bedroom and pool both could do with a make over. All was very clean though which is more important. It is in good position for those walking TMB as it is a couple of kms out of Les Contamines in... More

My husband and I stayed here at the end of August for one night - the hotel was a welcome sight after a long first day of hiking the TMB in the pouring rain. Fortunately, the jacuzzi was open til 8pm and was just the thing for our chilled, sore muscles - what a treat! It seems like this hotel... More

On the positive – the essentials are fine ie plenty of hot water, the bed is comfortable and the room is reasonable clean with a balcony. Breakfast is the usual continental one. There is an outdoor swimming pool. On the negative – my room smelt musty. It had no window and I felt I needed to keep the door to... More

I enjoyed a week at chalet chemenaz. Family run, clean, and convenient to many great hikes. Five course meals were fresh, lightly seasoned, creative and never too rich (except for the tartiflettes..a regional dish). Only critique: the white wine was not very chilled. Very comfortable public areas inside and out.
