As our first time taking our young daughter skiing this Chalet Hotel was just perfection. The staff definitely made the stay. A really helpful, polite and friendly group of people who seemed to enjoy doing what they were doing. We met a few out on the slopes in their own time and still they had the same sunny disposition. I...

Totally agree with Charlotte below. Excellent chalet hotel, staff were outstanding! Greeted at the front door by Gregor who carried my ridiculously heavy bag right to the top floor smiling all the way. Drinks served up by Ferg all week with crazy ski videos on the screen in the bar - great inspiration! Bea was an absolute star - cracking...

The hotel was clean and tidy and had lots of character despite being a little dated. Our room (32) was really spacious and had great views of the Savoy nursery slopes and the room was perfectly...

Great value, good food, good location, friendly helpful staff, unbelievable views of mont blanc and the surrounding mountains. Ski lifts close enough to ski back to from brevent and flegere ski areas. Only a short walk in to the town centre for Apres ski and any other amenities, hotel bar with sky facilities if Apres wasn't on the cards. The...

We were part of a family group of 28 who stayed at the hotel in January. The holiday had been booked for over a year and unfortunately there was a problem with one of the rooms when we arrived so it was suggested that two of our party would go to another hotel!

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
