Stayed 2 nights here in room 43 which looking at the map was one of the smaller rooms but well big enough for a summer stay, lovely room with everything you could want. The bed was very comfortable, in fact the nicest we have had after 3 weeks touring France and sleeping on very firm beds. Ample storage in wardrobe. We only had one pillow but just asked at reception and they just gave us another each. They just wanted you to have a good stay, so just ask!! Small separate “loo” in a cupboard. We had a bath, tiled and wood floors. Very quiet, we did not hear any of the other guests and the hotel was pretty full. Between 4-5.30 they had free hot drinks and cake in the lounge. Nice outside patio area and several indoor areas to sit, pool table and small games area. The staff were brilliant, spoke great English and extremely helpful. We asked one lady if she could book us a table at a local restaurant, when she tried it was closed and she said she would try later. Of course we thought she would forget but no, all done and for the time we requested. The view from our room was wonderful, we had a little patio table and chairs which was a nice touch. Slept with the patio doors open each night and fell asleep to the sound of the river rushing past below, absolutely gorgeous. Had Breakfast one of the days and it was really good, they had everything you could want, everything replenished, staff very attentive. Everything within walking distance, would definitely recommend a stay here.

Stayed here during a quick 4 day ski break with my wife. We arrived at about 12:50pm and as soon as we walked through the door and told reception who we were, we were immediately asked if we wanted to ski that afternoon. Reason being, the hire shop, which is only 150m from the hotel, closes at 1pm till 4pm. Once we said we did want to ski I was given a discount voucher and sent off to the hire shop. Room wasn’t ready as check in wasn’t till 3pm - no problem - bags in locked baggage room, Changing room on 1st floor, Bus stop to slopes 100m away. The reception staff remained super efficient and friendly throughout our stay. Rooms spotless. Breakfast (12euros each)very good. Croissants, cereal, eggs, toast, fresh bread, cheese - lots of choice. 2 minutes walk from the Main Street in Chamonix. Would definitely stay here again!
