You cant fault this hotel.Its not your modern looking swish hotel and on first arriving you might think it looks a bit tired. However it is typically French and its in a great location in Chamonix. Really friendly staff (Sorry too many to mention) although I can remember Dan the barman (for some reason) Lovely atmosphere, small and sociable. The food was superb and I mean superb!!! Hotel is right on the nursery slopes although it has easy access to the Brevant gondola. You could walk to the gondola but why bother? the bus stop is right outside the hotel. Ski hire shop is just round the corner (2 minute walk) A short walk into the beautiful town will get you to the the main bus stop that takes you to the other slopes. We only went to Le Tour and Les Houches are about 20-25 mins drive.
We stayed over xmas with two sons (12&14) and had a great time.The rooms were warm and clean. Free wifi in the bar area meant a nice place to chill or chatter with other guest about our exploits that day.We had rooms 40 and 41 and we woke up every morning to breathtaking views of Mont Blanc (book these rooms if you can)
Only a couple of negatives. We did suggest to the staff that they displayed on reception if there were any slopes not open that day as we had traveled up to le Tour one day only to find it shut due to high winds. I think as we left they were starting to display piste details on the telly on the lounge.
Also, the ski room is a bit small for the size of the hotel and was a bit cramped in the mornings. it could also do with allocated ski/boot storage as a couple of times people were going out with other peoples boots/skis on. Do not let this put you off though and don't let it detract you from what is essentially a cracking hotel. We had a fantastic time. Great hotel, great staff, Great food, made some great friends and did some great skiing. All in all very good :)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Arguably the best located hotel in Chamonix. The Savoy nursery slopes are literally just over the road from the hotel, from where the Savoy téléski lift whisks you up to the Brévent gondola, to access one of the best intermediate areas in the resort.Alternatively, the ski-bus to Chamonix's other ski areas stops just 50m away. The hotel's attractive dining room has semi-circular bay windows with stunning views of Mont Blanc. Here you will enjoy Inghams great choice of menus and complimentary quality wines for dinner. Inghams offer the conviviality of larger tables for chalet-style dining with your fellow guests, or the opportunity to dine à deux should you wish. The atmospheric lounge/bar welcomes you for your pre-dinner apéritif and canapés, or to relax after dinner over coffee and a night-cap ... more less
