The Chamois d'Or Hotel is a truly unique experience.
This becomes apparent immediately upon arrival as you meet the staff.
Who greet you with warm and personal welcomes, this etiquette was present through the stay. Making you feel at home with such kindness, the staff are genuinely really nice people and this shows! Not like your average travel-lodge staff that share those dull, unenthusiastic, rude nonchalant responses. These staff go out of their way to make you feel comfort and at ease.
All this makes the already wonderful setting even better!
The accommodation is modern, clean and stylish. Bedrooms are a great size with fabulous views of the snowy mountains, and are kitted out with all necessary appliances. Bathrooms are sleek and spacious, we had a bath in ours which was lovely after a hard session out of the mountain! The lobby and bar are also kitted out with lovely furniture, which is comfortable and stylish, couldn't ask for more! The Chamois d'Or Hotel has a fantastic bar which features great a setting and some special brews! I enjoyed the amazing 9% Mutzig Beer which is on tap and a must try!
Now for the food! Oh the food.
Its hard to know where to start but as an aperitif; I'd say it's safe to say, its the best food I believe I've ever had!
Now that may sound like quite a statement but put it this way, I can still taste that slow cooked Normandy Beef Cheek or the Roasted Scottish Salmon.
The food is the bomb and if you visit you wont be going out for dinner anywhere else I can assure you.
I think the following is a great sentiment to the effort this place goes to to make you feel at home:
So me and a fellow friend arrive back to the hotel, knackered from snowboarding all day, we are warmly greeted back and the staff take our snowboarding gear of us and store it away, upon entering the bar we sit down and begin to gain composure after an exhausting day. There is a selection of a hot drink and various gateaux, tarts and other delicious confectioneries available from 5PM, but we were an hour or so late and knew the chef would be now preparing dinner so didn't expect to catch in on this today.
Just a passing note, I was made aware that the fabulous kitchen staff create everything from scratch from Chocolate Gateaux's to Pear sorbet.
We were wrong however, the barman approaches us and asks us if we would like our afternoon confectioneries and a hot drink and that he would make a special request to the chef for us. Delighted, of course, we accepted and enjoyed some of the best pastries with a hot chocolate.
I believe that is a sentiment to how the staff will go very much out the way to make your stay a very special and unique, unforgettable experience.
On behalf of myself and my friend, I'd like to thank all the staff involved in making our stay, such a special one. Will defiantly be returning in the foreseeable future!
