“A room with a view!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Very pleasant one night stay in a spacious room with a wonderful view of the lake. Hotel lives up to its 3 star rating with friendly staff and everything clean and tidy. The attached restaurant which seems to specialise in pizzas is very popular and vibrant in the evenings, good food at fair prices. Breakfast was fine too.
A lovely little town...well worth stopping here for a night and the Hotel du Glacier should fit the bill.

Stayed here for just 1 night whilst on the Tour du Mont Blanc. The hotel has a good situation in the middle of Champex, close to the lake. The rooms are small but benefit from a large balcony. The bathroom in our room was a little odd but adequate - the sink was a curtained off alcove opposite the bed, toilet and shower separate. Evening meal was good, breakfast excellent with bircher muesli.A comfortable stop on a long walk.

Room Tip: Ask for room with balcony if possible

This a simple hotel with comfortable rooms and nice view. Breakfast buffet is rich and service very good. We can recommend the hotel restaurant as well. The SPA area is somewhat old and would require renovation. The location is excellent, close to the ski-lift and view on the lake.

Nothing to complain about at all with this hotel. Clean, comfy beds and a nice location in Champex... with views out onto the lake and surrounding mountains. We stayed here for one night as part of our hiking of the Tour du Mont Blanc.

The restaurant at in the hotel has delicious pizzas. Even my Italian travel partner agreed they are some of the best she has ever had. Prices were quite reasonable for Champex too.

Very comfortale hotel with hosts that make you feel at home. A good size room for two, clean and with comfortable beds plus a nice varanda with an excellet view to the mountains. A restaurant serving very good food with good price for value. An excellent place to return when coming from a walk in the mountains.

Room Tip: 3rd floor rooms have the best view

We opted to stay at Hotel du Glacier while hiking the Haute Route in 2010. We found it to be a good price and a very comfortable room. Our room had a nice balcony overlooking the main street and a super comfortable bed! Breakfast was an extensive buffet. Additionally, the staff spoke perfect English which was helpful in booking our subsequent night lodging at a cabane!
