I arrived unexpectedly at La Gelinotte and a room had to be made up for me at the last minute of my first day on the TMB. Beatrice could not have been kinder or more pleasant. My room was perfectly comfortable, clean and quiet. Dinner was memorable, especially the myrtilles dessert and it was very nice that the chef came...

We called from a village 4 km away absolutely exhausted from our first day on the TMB asking for a taxi. Our host replied , "Well, I'm not a taxi but I can be there in 5 minutes". They couldn't have been more kind through our entire stay. We had a simple but good dinner and a nice filling breakfast...

The hotel stay was really amazing. This is a family run budget hotel and very friendly staff. The staff goes out of the way to help you out and have a pleasant stay. The food served is very tasty. The rooms are clean and have good views. The bathroom is neat and clean with shower. They provide pickup and drop...

We slouched in weary and worn after day 1 of the TMB. Hungry? No problem, we'll fix you something. Grab a hot bath and it'll be waiting in the garden. Need a lift to the shops? I'm going anyway, jump in. Lunch tomorrow? I'll make you a picnic. Lovely people and a comfy, hearty gite-cum-hotel. Perfect for walkers on a...

Well - i didn't miss anything. The place was just more a scout hut than a hotel for my taste. Service was great, food was ok, it was relatively clean - well i wouldn't use the bathtop for other than shower. But the state and quality was too much diy - still in need of repair. Would i go there...

I arrived at Le Gelinotte after a very long first day (due to a little misnavigaiton) of hiking the TMB. The owner could not have been more accommodating! She literally had to help me take my shoes off! The evening meal was one of the best on the entire trek. And the room has a lovely balcony that overlooks the...

Stayed here with Exodus as part of the TMB. We walked in from the Col du Bonhomme and La Gelinotte was just what we wanted to see after a long day. Very welcoming staff, basic but clean rooms, great dinner and a large breakfast to start off the day the next morning. Would be a good place to stay if...

This hotel has the most fantastic family atmosphere, and you can brush up on your French if you want to. The breakfasts are fantastic, and the dinners, if you can get the menu out of the chef, are fantastic. Wifi works in the bedrooms which is a bonus.

We stayed here on our first and last night of our TMB in July. The service is very good and welcoming, with decent broken English spoken, with our basic French we got along OK. The traditional style chalet is about 10 minutes walk from Les Contamines village centre - a very steep path! Our first night and last night rooms...

This is a nice "chalet" in the excellent ski resort of Les Contamines. The hotel is more like a "pension" offering half or full board. Don't expect luxury here but the warm attendance by the owners and personal is undoubtedly there to enjoy. Prices are very democratic and make for value wintersports. Substantial rebates are available at the hotel on...
