                  • Family with children
                    7.8

                    Friendly, family atmosphere, nice small pool

                  • Older travelers
                    5.4

                    Good size, well appointed room.

                    The hotel itself was quiet but situated beside a motorway (main route to Italy through the Mont Blanc tunnel). With temperatures in the high 30's last week, and no air conditioning, we could not leave the windows closed, but the noise from the road was apalling and went on all night. The service was mixed. The woman (who we presumed to be the owner) was helpful and her waiter was a delight, constantly smiling and nothing was too much trouble. Unfortunately the other young man who served us (who we took to be the owner's son) gave the impression that serving was beneath him and when he made mistakes (because he hadn't listened a properly in the first place) they were our fault! He made meals most uncomfortable. Menus choices were limited.

                  • Family with children
                    4.6

                    The hotel is pretty basic and straight forward.

                    The location is too far from tourist attractions, not for those without own means of transport.

                  • Family with children
                    4.6

                    The bathroom was clean

                    Stupidly expensive. We stayed with our teenage daughter for one night enroute back to England from Tuscany. There were hairs in my bed, the pillows were rolls and the whole place looked like it needed a total refurb. Didn't stay for breakfast got out as soon as poss. Wouldn't have been so bad if we had paid less but it was €153 for a quadruple room, way too expensive for the location (not in chamonix) and the general rundown feeling.

                  • Family with children
                    4.4

                    The manager was surly. Our room shared a glassed in balcony with the next room who used theirs as a smoking area so might as well have smoked in our room. The next room were noisy at night The breakfast was very ordinary with vending machine cofee which was vile. The hotel is very inconvenient for the ski lifts. We were at the anglo scottish cup and should have got a discount but he refused because we had booked through Booked.net

                  • Family with children
                    7.4

                    The location of the hotel is great for beginners in winter sports, literally next to a ski lift, sledging slope and ice rink. We will go back certainly.

                    Family room with kitchen in the basement is not worth the money. Poor and dated. The other rooms are in much better shape, newly decorated and clean. Kettle in the room would be nice but not expected in France.

                  • Older travelers
                    5.0

                    Very good location with beautiful views of Mont Blanc.

                    Although very clean the interior is very dated and not aesthetically pleasing. The Management were unsympathetic when we highlighted a number of problems and did not seem particularly interested in giving customer satisfaction. I feel they were taking advantage of the wonderful location of their hotel..

                  • Couple
                    7.4

                    A good hotel with a family atmosphere and staff for whom nothing was too much effort. Rooms were clean and spacious. Food was excellent and better than at many of the other restaurants in the village. I would definitely stay here again.
