Hotel Beau Site
Ranked #10 of 14 Hotels in Les Houches
Reviewed January 23, 2011

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at this hotel. After making the booking last year I then read the reviews on this page and was a little worried about what I'd done! However, when we stayed last March we had a lovely visit and decided to stay again this year. The food is absolutely excellent and there is nowhere else in Chamonix and the surrounding area where you would get 4 courses for the same price (we chose the half board option). It is true that the rooms are a little dated but this just seems to add to the general ambience of the hotel and it is certainly very clean throughout. It appears that a lot of the interior decorations are hand made with love and this lends the hotel a very homely feel. There are some lovely traditional touches and the handmade quilts in the breakfast room are fantastic. Our room was always very warm, in fact too warm at times. The owner is a lovely, friendly person and I'm sure would do anything to make your stay enjoyable. All of the other staff were also friendly and helpful. We usually have a hire car when we go to Chamonix as it is easier to get around with one so I can't comment on the public transport. This is the first time I have ever done a review but after reading some of the ones on here I felt the need to offer a different perspective on this lovely hotel.

Starting with what was good: food which was above average in quality and service (like it was part of another movie).
Close enough to ski bus station. Valley ski bus system is nothing but a joke unfortunately, those buses reaching les houches are not frequent enough and crowded, returning from Argentiere takes even 40min standing and drivers do not drive humans but potatoes.
Now worst for me: temperature in the room which in the end I measured because it seemed just too cold (21.5). On third day we decided to complain an tell we want 24 degr in our room and that they do not stop the heating during the night. We spoke to the old lady who did not even want to listen us out what we had to say, she said that she will fix it by telling Nicolle (apparently they had a system of establishing temperatures in the rooms). After dinner temperature was up one degree, next day situation returned to previous situation.
Other turn off for me was the bathroom structure with separate tiny enclosures for wc and lavatory/shower (outdated finishings did not bother me).
I am still here :) I hope they do not put something in my food for this post.

We stayed for a week's skiing. The ski bus stopped about 50m away from the hotel so an easy walk and they run about 3 times an hour to the slopes. Thet were crowded, though we were there for half term week. It's easy enough to get to the slopes though not ideal.
The hotel itself is family owned and run. The service was great, as was the food. The owner was always happy to help out with information or drinks. The food was also excellent, and great value especially on the half board basis. Breakfast was continental, cooked available though extra charge. Evening meals always 4 courses and delicious with plenty of variety and local specialities.
The rooms were clean and comfortable, though not full of the little things you'd expect in a chain or more expensive place. No hairdryer or kettle for example and the choice of TV channels very small - BBC news the only English one. Decor dated especially in the bathroom but not horribly chipped, mouldy or broken so it was not a problem. WiFi is available though not in the rooms. 25 Euros per week charge.
We didn't expect luxury given the price, but we did get a fantastic atmosphere, comfort, delicious food and great service
