The Hotel Chemenaz is ideal for our requirements. It's clean, very comfortable and well run and very close to the ski shop and lifts. This is our fourth year in the same hotel. However our only major complaint was the lack of WiFi!!! In this day and age this should be faultless and as accessible as electricity.

Family owned. Very comfortable hotel. Mid range pricing for rooms and restaurant. One of the better breakfasts of about 10 places we stayed while walking the Tour Mont Blanc. Ate dinner there, again very good mid-range restaurant.

The hotel staff was superb! They were very responsive with every request, and we had a few: information on local activities, light snacks and food, extra towels and an iron for the room, transportation to local places. They came through on every occasion with success. There is a nice, comfortable lobby area which is great for meeting and sitting with... More

We booked this hotel through Macs Adventure when we were walking the TMB and we found it really nice and comfortable. It's located on a side of the city and it seemed that it took forever to find the place since we were walking from Les Houches. However the next day the location proved convenient since it was close to... More

The one good thing about this hotel is that it is right on the route for the TMB, so very convenient. Dinner at their restaurant was actually quite good, with a decent breakfast to boot. However, the room was tired, with a broken shower which made taking a shower somewhat difficult. The icing on the cake was the fact that... More

Unfortunately, without knowing your identity and we have no recollection of your problems, it is difficult to ascertain the legitimacy of your claim. Definitely grateful for the time your spent to give us feedback. Though at this junction, we are confused as to if and when you actually stayed. Mr Gauthier, managing director More

What do you wish for after a day's climb? This modern hotel has it all: Jacuzi, swimming pool, drying room for your gear, wonderful silky water, and a balcony where you are allowed to hang clothes to dry. Our room was spotlessly clean with a cot to sleep three. The negative proved to be the bathtub. It was downright dangerous.... More

Towards the end of June and early July of 2015, I hiked the Tour du Mont Blanc with a group of 12 other hikers. The outfitter was HF Holidays.  I had traveled with them before, hiking England Coast to Coast, and the West Highland Way (Scotland).  Those experiences were outstanding.  I was looking for another multi day strenuous hike.  The Tour...

We stopped here after our 1st day of hiking. Great location, 10 min out of town but right on the TMB so you get a head start the next AM. Really good food and would highly recommend dining here. Rooms were nice sized. The manager helped us by calling ahead for reservations at a subsequent stop. WiFi was ok.

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
