Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 July 2017

Stayed here again for the second time with my family in a suite with two rooms and two bathrooms. A lovely little hotel located in Palud at the foot of the mountains of Mont Blanc. Very helpful and friendly staff. Nice and clean all over the hotel. Good breakfast. If/when coming back to the area, we will for sure again stay in Albergo Dente del Gigante.

Room Tip: A good base for hiking/skiing in the mountains

Absolutely beautiful, small hotel on the edge of and above the town of Courmayeur (La Palud). Beautifully appointed with comfortable beds, balconies in some of the rooms, magnificent views down the valley and generous, delicious breakfast. Very clean and delightfully decorated with antique prints and old photos of the surrounding landscapes. Very friendly and helpful staff. The fireplace in the living room is a wonderful final touch. Can't go wrong with this place!!

Room Tip: Try to reserve a room with a balcony.

A brief stay en route from Italy to UK. Mrs Squire wanted to see Monte Bianco and this lovely hotel did not disappoint. Walking distance to Monte Bianco Skyway, cycling distance to Col Petit Saint Bernard. Quiet & classy. Self assured. Good breakfast. Great people.

This hotel is tucked into one of the most beautiful corners of the world. Surrounding you are the gorgeous peaks of Mont Blanc. Less than a minute up the road from are mountain trails. Down from the hotel are good restaurants. The rooms at the hotel are very clean and comfortable, and the people are out-of-their way friendly. Our family stayed here one night on the way from Rome to Paris, and I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Also, their croissants at breakfast were better than anything that I ate in Paris. Pricewise, this was the least expensive hotel we stayed in, but was one of the nicest in terms of location, surrounding beauty, and quality.

We have been there with my family during school ski-break season and had a fantastic time. All stuff is extremely helpful and kind and makes you feel like home. Rooms are traditionally decorated, alpine style, nicely heated and are relatively spacious with essential amenities. Breakfast offers good and tasty variety.
We were originally planning to go there with another friends-family, who had though to cancel last minute (for an unexpected/ unfortunate emergency), yet hotel stuff has been very understanding and offered them a refund.
We overall appreciated hotel's hospitality, enjoyed our stay and plan to come back.

Room Tip: The rooms in -1 may sometimes get a bit noisy, so suggest you prefer top floor.

This is a fantastic little hotel. A beautiful setting, the rooms were fairly basic but had everything we needed and it was clean, friendly and a great pric. The staff were wonderfully helpful, even to the point of leaving out breakfast for us at 06:00 on the morning we left. The village has some lovely little restaurants in as well so almost no need to go into Courmayeur itself if you don't want to.

Room Tip: There is a connecting twin & double room if a family or friends travelling together

We stayed at the Dente Del Gigante for 3 nights and it was a wonderful experience. The location of the property, the gorgeous surroundings, the warmth of the proprietor, the attentiveness of the staff, the coziness and quality of the room, the gorgeous views of the Mont Blanc range from the room, quality of restaurants nearby and the ease of travelling from there made this a splendid stay and is highly, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Higher floors and double aspect.
