This place is crazy. It’s like being on a ship in 16th century. You may not be thrilled about some of the details but you will never forget it. The reviews about the weird spaces packed with people are all true and extraordinarily creeky floors and two toilets for a mass of people. People crawling out of holes in the morning just trying to wash their face. You should stay here just for the loopy experience of it. Go with someone with a good sense of humor.

We stayed here on our TMB tour. The setting was beautiful and they have a great beer garden (plus free wifi). We were given a small private room for 2 despite booking a dorm so our privacy was a great addition! There were 2 showers and 2 toilets which did cause a bit of a queue but they were clean and hot unlike some refuges we have stayed in! The evening meal was salad, mustard chicken with rice, bread & cheese and stewed Apple for dessert! All the food tasted great there was plenty of it (enough for seconds) and the service was fab. For breakfast we had a selection of fruit, cereal, jam, honey and bread. This was also one of the only refuges to provide a toaster and to provide fruit! We would recommend staying here!

We arrived after our most challenging day on the TMB, having hiked from Les Houches with a detour to Lac Blanc, and we were so pleased. Being so exhausted, we were thrilled that we were seated at our own private table for the two of us. We received copious amounts of salad and pasta (with a vegetable sauce for me, a vegetarian), and it was just a perfect cozy, warm welcome. The showers, although cramped, were warm, which is all we really cared about. The Auberge has wonderful touches, like old photos and tools hung throughout, and details you don’t see in other refuges/gites/auberges on the TMB. We stayed here after leaving Les Houches because La Flegere was closed for the summer, but it was honestly such a treat to experience Auberge la Boerne. We got a bit off track leaving in the morning (we took the wrong path which put us back a half hour or so—just make sure to take the trail that goes up and to the left from the Auberge—not down to the right—if going clockwise on the TMB.

Part of our TMB, the auberge looked so cute and charming from outside. Flower beds and outdoor furnitures made the first approach very promising. That was however before our host took us to our room... a 3sqm windowless space under the eaves (Posettes space on their floorplan available from their website) that i would not dream of getting my dog to sleep in. Clean but outrageously small... Generally, the place was rammed (31 guests plus a few campers who shared dinner with us) and you could hardly move around. Three loos, two showers for everyone, that was just not enough... On the plus side, very clean (although the loos and showers need to be upgraded urgently), friendly staff, excellent meal for dinner, ok breakfast and good lunch pack the next morning... The auberge could be amazing if the owners agreed to cut the numbers of beds and dorms by half. Right now it feels claustrophobic and not that welcoming unfortunately...

I had high hopes for this place. We finished our hiking and had a late lunch which was a great menu with great service. What followed was not the same experience at all. Unfortunately, we chose to stay the night here. It was the first and last time I will eat chewy chewy Turkey Pasta. Salad was good, cheese was good, dessert was stewed apple, so good. Thank goodness the 9 of us that were placed in a room knew each other. I cannot imagine if we didn't. Cramped, no room for bags, with a light that would go on if one of us rolled over. I was also thankful that we had a window. As some did noy. The place is also a fire hazard and I couldn't stop thinking about what might happen if we had to escape in the night. For the amount of people accommodated in the confines of the building it will be a tragic thing when it happens. So please be careful. There were also three toilets and two showers for everyone in the whole building - perhaps 60 people!!!! Not good. It also didn't feel very clean, Very beautiful on the outside, but not so on the inside.
