One of the friendliest hotels we have ever stayed in. The staff are fantastic, the facilities are good and the food super. Can't wait to go back next year to one of the most picturesque hotels in the Alps

Dinner was brilliant and the bar and hotel facilities were excellent.
Room was average.
Breakfast was below average - didn't not like being charged for a boiled egg at a 4 star restaurant.
A car is a must as the shuttles are confusing for guests and hotel staff alike. They don't stick to set times and locations. I waited 1 hour in cold with skis to be collected. No apology - very odd. As I say take a car or don't book this hotel.

Absolutely stunningly beautiful location and venue for a wedding, excellent accommodation and to a high standard. The main problem was having to pay an extra €15 for breakfast on top, and this was not only extremely expensive but also poor - little range and ran out early, including coffee! In addition vegetarian options at meal times were non-existent and left vegetarians very hungry! These were unfortunately major negatives.

Stayed: December 2016

This is a very interesting hotel set in the rural region of Chamonix. If you are looking at a real lodge experience this is the place to stay. It had a pool, sauna in spar in the back section of the hotel. The room had a lovely view and good facilities. The bar had an excellent range of drinks and you could book accommodation in the establishment with all facilities. Now the downside, we decided to eat at the restaurant, overpriced and poor quality, breakfast options were also poor and you were charged extra for breakfast. It is a pity the hotel could be excellent but let down by these issues

A car is a must to stay at this hotel. It is up a narrow and slightly rough road. There are plenty of parking spaces.
The room was a little tight for space but had all the amenities .We had a good view across the hotels large garden to the forest and the mountain peaks.
Provides an excellent breakfast and dinner.
Chamonix is a short drive where paid parking is ample.
Cable cars offer easy access to the walking areas.
