Good hotel, good staff, good food, keep up the good work. If you get a good room facing mount blonk what more do you need. The food and staff was good they were friendly and good humoured and the wine flowed if you wanted.

Stunning location. Comfortable, quiet rooms. Food good and plentiful. Staff very good. Great base for hiking and climbing in the beautiful mountains. Special mention for Danny, what a nice person, great people skills. Holly the Ingham's rep also excellent. The cooks come out for a chat and the waiting on staff are really pleasant.

This is a wonderful hotel to stay at if you like good food, great service, excellent company and a wonderful view.

I can only reiterate all the positive remarks made in previous reviews. Whilst the hotel itself is not 4 star luxury the Inghams team made it a 4 star experience. We had a wonderful time at La Sapiniere and were very sad to say goodbye to Chamonix, and the lovely people we had met, when our week ended. The hotel...

It was purely by chance that we ended up in Chamonix on this family holiday with my two daughters, 22 and 20. While confident it would suit my husband and I, I was anxious that it wasn't an ideal holiday choice for the girls. However from the moment we arrived the warmth of the welcome alongside the vitality and friendliness...

We are seven days into a fortnight's stay and cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful little hotel. We arrived at ten o'clock at night (hoping for a sandwich if we were lucky) to be offered a delicious three course meal with two bottles of wine. This set the tone for the holiday which has got better and better each...

Sometimes it can be a mistake to return to a holiday destination but this was not one of those. Since our last visit four years ago, the hotel has undergone updating to bathrooms, bedrooms and communal areas to make it a very comfortable place to stay in possibly the best location in Chamonix. It is situated on the edge of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Arguably the best located hotel in Chamonix. The Savoy nursery slopes are literally just over the road from the hotel, from where the Savoy téléski lift whisks you up to the Brévent gondola, to access one of the best intermediate areas in the resort.Alternatively, the ski-bus to Chamonix's other ski areas stops just 50m away. The hotel's attractive dining room has semi-circular bay windows with stunning views of Mont Blanc. Here you will enjoy Inghams great choice of menus and complimentary quality wines for dinner. Inghams offer the conviviality of larger tables for chalet-style dining with your fellow guests, or the opportunity to dine à deux should you wish. The atmospheric lounge/bar welcomes you for your pre-dinner apéritif and canapés, or to relax after dinner over coffee and a night-cap ... more   less
