        • Couple
          8.2

          The location on the other side of Mont Blanc. The outside swimming pool that is very pleasant especially in hot days. The possibility to have breakfast and dinner in the restaurant next to the hotel - fantastic buffet system with regional delicacies.

          The only thing - the road just in front of the hotel, then another road and a highway in the direction to Geneve. If people prefer to sleep in a quiet place then they have to book a room on the other side of the building with a view to the Mont Blanc.

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          The restaurant and lounge at the hotel have a nice atmosphere. The staff were, for the most part, very helpful.

          The hotel is far from the ski lifts - do not attempt to walk in ski boots carrying skis! The hotel has free transfers, which are convenient, but the location is not great if you want to go out to eat and drink in the evening. Everything was fine, but for the price, i expected more.

        • Family with children
          9.2

          It is a really nice hotel with a lovely friendly atmosphere. The staff were always willing to please and reception staff were very helpful regarding the weather conditions and where to ski.

          A little noisy on the first floor corridor as people constantly come through from a different building and slam the door.

        • Family with children

          Great views from the hotel balcony. fair-enough breakfast, Helpful staff.Free shuttle bus to ski rental shops and they also arranged the free van to take us to Chamonix centre on one day.

          nice view

          It is not equipped with slipper for each room.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          No airconditioning in the room made sleeping uncomfortable. Insufficient car parking for the size of the hotel. Breakfast good, but a bit of a scrum with the bus parties.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Our room had a balcony with a view of the mountains. The staff at the front desk were absolutely wonderful - friendly and helpful. We asked on check-in about the possibility of staying a 2nd night and we were very helpfully given a room that was available both nights. We did end up staying two nights.

          The restaurant had two sittings, one at 7.15pm and the other at 8.40 pm. We felt the one was too early so chose the later one, only to find that the restaurant was practically empty and we probably could have eaten at a more convenient time like 8pm. Dinner in the restaurant was limited to a buffet or 3 other local specialities but the quality was just ordinary. Coffee at breakfast came from a machine and was not of the quality we've come to expect in even the most basic of French hotels. This is a good budget choice for people not fussy about their food!

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          View, location and swimming pool.

          During our short stay there were extremes of service. The hotel became very busy with coach parties creating conjestion at the buffet meals. When there were no coach parties, the restaurant was closed at very short notice as there were few residents and there were no other open restaurants open within easy walking distance.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          Ok but expensive for what it was, small rooms.

          Location near to Mont Blanc tunnel.

        • Family with children
          6.6

          Friendly staff; and it was unusual to have a choice of swimming pools. The view from the room was magnificent, and the area was quiet at night. The breakfast was perfectly adequate.

          The dining room has a rather scruffy look. At breakfast some of the table cloths were dirty and looked as if they had not been changed since the night before.

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          although the hotel probably needs some renovation, it is a quite nice place to stay. Large restaurant and bar, parking lot. The rooms are not very large, but the view to the Mont Blanc is nice, and are quite ( only one side of the hotel though). Nice Breakfast, plenty of choice , good start of the day.

          The dinner ( buffet) is not good, I can not advise people to have diner there at night. ( plenty of choice, but quality is basic, not up to french restaurant standard). The sauna and swimming pool are not very clean and urgently need some renovation

        • Couple
          6.6

          Service was friendly, location great with on site parking, and had a lovely relaxing bar area with free wi-fi. Restaurant food was very good with a nice atmosphere.

          Had to go out of our way to attract the attention of staff to be served both in the bar and for our booked dinner in the restaurant. Room was booked as 'mountain view, but actually we were overlooking the car park/ road, though technically mountains can be seen in every direction!
