I have been visiting Chamonix for 20 years and have worked there for a season- and never sampled the Richemond! I have now and am glad I did! If you are used to French hotels (slightly quirky but usually excellent) then you cannot go wrong here!
We had a double room on the fourth floor- and although the walls are a little thin (makes things interesting) the room was very typically french and we loved it- included was a spectacular view over Mont Blanc. The shower was the best bit of the room- a sort or cabin thing with water pressure that could soothe any sore muscles after sking. The breakfast was also excellent- and the chap who runs it was a great character- just dont sit on a table for 3 if there are two of you!
The faciliites were great with a games room and non smoking lounge, and plenty of parking for the car as well- which is great as parking in Chamonix will send anyone round the bend! The staff could not be more helpful, and the location was excellent- basically right on the main strip- if you want to join fellow Brits it is right opposite 'The Pub' but my advice is to venture further afield.
If you are looking for American style chain hotels were they pander to your every need- don't stay here, but if you want the real deal for France then this hotel is up there with the best.
I will certainly be going back!
