After our long drive from London to Chamonix via an unplanned detour in the Jura mountains, we were travel weary and jaded on arriving. However that was dispelled immediately by this hotel. Its the perfect choice for skiers who are going to be on the slpoes all day but want somewhere comfortable to rest their head. The room was wood pannelled with lovely painted furniture.Lots of wardrobe space and a nice size room with twon aspect windows. The bathroom was a little small but at least it stayed warm. Our room overlooked the Arves river and had a great view of Le Brevant where we skied for 2 days. Some people might find the river noisy, but coming from a big town the gentle flow was a great way of getting to sleep. The heating was at the perfect temperature (maybe a little too hot) but essential as the weather in Cham was -15 most days. What really made it though was the staff who were incredibly helpful and friendly at all times. Breakfast was tradtional French with a nod towards US and British tastes with eggs and bacon also. There is a ski room for keeping equipment in and it is only accessible via a code operated entry system. The Irish bar on site is great for Apres Ski drinks before changing for dinner. I reccommend the Vin Chaud! Great location - only a 6 minute walk to the Brevant lift (with skis) and restaurants within stumbling distance. Will definietly be coming back here again - hopefully at the end of Jan. I would unreservadly reccomend this to winter sports enthusiasts who also want to keep an eye on the cost.
