“Lovely hotel, highly recommended.”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

We stayed here for the weekend of 12-14 April 2013 for a short skiing trip. The hotel is really very nice. Breakfast is far more impressive than most European hotels - with a wide range of cold meats, pastries, jams etc. The outside hot tub overlooked by the snow topped mountains was a particular treat. The room size was excellent - and the bed was massive. And for Chamonix, where it's not particularly easy to get skiing from most accommodation, it's brilliantly located - just 100m or so from the Grands Montets ski lift. The hotel staff and friendly and go out of their way to help you out. If you're skiing, we'd particularly recommend the Skiset ski hire shop that is nearest to the hotel. I can honestly say that I have never had better service in any shop anywhere than we had there. All in all, a great place to say and have no hesitation in recommending it.

Overall, we fell in love with the place from the first time we stayed here two years ago. From the first moment you enter till the last minute you leave, everything is perfect. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, to match the authentique style of the region, you get a nice treat of candies in the room every day, the view is great, and the facilities are user-friendly. We often visited the pool and the outdoor jacuzzi area following a long day on the slopes, which is in the very near proximity of the hotel. That is very convenient, if you don't want to walk a long way or use a bus, that is though available at a close distance to take you to the neighbouring sloes of Les Houches or Le Tour, as well as Chamonix. The staff are welcoming and helpful - they would call a restaurant to make a booking for you, or a taxi if you need it, or help in a situation where you have to go through an emergency purchase of winter tyres and not know what to do with them. Our special thanks goes to the manager. One little disadvantage of the hotel is not having hot meals on the breakfast menu, but that's survivable, given that the ski slopes 200 m away have three restaurants available, and you can always have a bite there, if you want to. Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area.

Room Tip: choose a MontBlanc suite starting from the second floor - you will get great views

My family stayed here for the first week of April, with two teenage children. The highlight was the pool and hot tub on the deck. The breakfast has a good selection, better than average for France. It is a 2 minute walk to the Grands Montets lift and an easy 5 minutes walk into town that has some good restaurants. Les Tours ski area is better for intermediates and 10 mins on the free bus. Our room was nicely furnished and you can control the heat yourself. The bathroom was a bit dated, very retro, but we liked the L'Occitane soap and shampoo which made up for it. I understand some room's bathrooms have been updated.
The management were very helpful. We had to leave at 6.00pm on the last day and they let us keep the room until then and gave us fresh towels too. A good end to a great stay.

I was just emailing a friend to say what a good hotel this was - friendly receptionist , spacious suite, beautiful view, excellent location - when my son and his family popped over from their apartment to say hello.

The manager was in reception. He refused to allow them to come up to our suite. He refused to let my wife accompany them up to our suite. He refused to allow us to give them a drink in the bar. He was offensive to my son and aggressive towards my wife.

What a pity!

This is not the first time the manager's unpleasant attitude has been mentioned in a Tripadvisor review.

Les Grands Montets is located a short walk from the main lift to the pistes of the same name. It is a well equipped hotel with a handy spa including massage therapies, sauna, steam room, pool and hot tub (outside - perfect for a plunge in the snow!) The staff are very helpful and accommodating and all could speak excellent English.
My only criticism of the hotel would be that they do not serve food other than breakfast. It would have been noce to have a meal there in the evening due to the distance of the hotel from the main resort town of Chamonix. There are a few restaurants within walking distance (15 minutes) but if you wanted to enjoy any of the apres ski in town you would need to have a hire car or book a taxi.
We hired a car for the 4 days we were there which meant we could sample some of the other slopes nearby. I would recommend this option to anyone considering Chamonix as a ski destination as it made our trip so much easier. There are busses available that will take you to the other resorts but I witnessed some fairly substantial queues while out there.
All in all, a noce hotel in a good location for a few days skiing. I would suggest this may also be a good location for a long summer weekend and will be considering a trip out there this summer to make the most of the surrounding area.

This hotel is 2 minutes walk from the first lift at Grands Montets slopes where you find the steepest slopes and the best of piste in Chamonix. It is a 10 minute drive from Chamonix town centre so this place is on the quite side. You can go up to abt 3600m here and ski all the way down to the hotel at 1100m. Do that in one run, and your legs really feel it! The hotel is a lodge style hotel with decent rooms and also veranda for the afternoon sun which is nice! Also a good jacuzzi and small gym to chill in after days of skiing.

On a whole a lovely place. Fantastic location being literally a 2 minute walk from the grands montets ski lift.
The rooms were clean, warm and comfortable.
The pool was great and we loved nothing more than to hang out in the jacuzzi at the end of a long day ski-ing.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
Only criticism is the lack of resteraunt in the hotel. It would have been nice to at least get a snack in the afternoon.
Overall lovely stay.
