“Week of skiing with the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

This was our third visit to the Hotel du Bois, we return because the hotel does and is everything it promises. We were a large family group celebrating a big birthday, wives, girlfriends, grand child, so we took one of the large chalet apartments and two rooms in the hotel. Everyone was happy with the hotel at all levels, the chalet was spacious and really well equipped, the rooms were comfortable and big enough to have a baby cot, the bathrooms were better than usual. The pool and sauna were great after a day's skiing. The hotel runs a shuttle bus to the lifts in les Houches, a quick call and they are there in 10 minutes, a valuable service. Free WiFi throughout the hotel has been upgraded this year. There is ample parking.

Room Tip: Rooms with the Mont Blanc view are quiet and sunny.

We could not fault this hotel. The attentive staff could not do enough for us and the owner seemed to be there 24 hours a day making sure we were well looked after. We had three young children with us and it was great to have the bonus of pool and games room, free wifi and family friendly but gourmet standard restaurant and the invaluable service of the shuttle bus from the front door to the ski lift whenever we wanted it. We can't believe this is only 3 stars: we would give it 5!
If you want somewhere with great value for money, friendly and efficient staff and a warm family friendly atmosphere, you won't find anywhere better.

My 7 year old and myself stayed for 5 nights at the Hotel Du Bois Les Houches. We loved it from the min we arrived we were welcomed by Natalie on reception who told us all we needed to know about the hotel and the local area.They have a bus that will take to up and back to the ski lift in 5 min or less. Breakfast was good, all you would expect from a european hotel, fresh fruit and fresh juice, cold meats, cereals, eggs, breads etc lots of to so you wont go hungry to the slopes.
The pool was great very warm so perfect for a swim after your day skiing.
The rooms were clean and warm and a good size too. I would stay here again no problem. we loved Les houches and if we get back there we will be staying in the Hotel du Bois.

We spent 5 nights here to explore the area and relax. We were given a warm welcome by the owner on arrival and our room was just fabulous, with a breath-taking view of Mont Blanc. During our stay we swam in the hotel pool and relaxed in the lounge area in front of the wood burning stove - it was really idyllic. Les Houches is very picturesque and not too far from Chamonix. We also had a day out in Annecy which is only about an hour away by car. We ate somewhere different every night in Les Houches but the best meal by far was at the hotel, so we dined there for our last evening. The staff were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely hotel.

A group of 7 of us stayed for a long weekend in one of the hotel chalets, the chalet was ideal in size for the group, well presented, clean and functional. The chalets give you the option of being self catered or you can have breakfast in the main hotel, needless to say we took breakfast in the hotel each morning to make life easier. The staff were excellent and extremely friendly and were always willing, as a result we took advantage of the mini bus everyday for runs to the lifts and ski shops. We felt we got extremely good value for money at the hotel for the level of accommodation and a number of our group will return with families. All in all an excellent stay and highly recommended.

I stayed here for two nights before my Mont Blanc trek. The room was clean and comfortable with a stunning view of Mont Blanc. I enjoyed watching the sunset out on the lawn watching the mountains fade into purples and pinks after a long day of hiking in Chamonix. The staff was friendly and bared with me as I practiced my French, explained the bus schedule well to me, and answered all my "where's this, where's that" questions. The buffet breakfast had lots of choices...I would hands down stay here again, and I am a picky hotel person!

We use the Hotel du Bois for our clients who book on our trekking holidays in particular on the Tour du Mont Blanc. The feedback we have received from our clients has been great with good facilities and friendly helpful service.
