“One of our favourite hotels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2012

We have stayed here three times in June for walking holidays. The rooms are wonderfully quiet and all the buildings are interesting, well decorated and kept very clean. Spacious gardens too. The family and all staff are very welcoming and the food never disappoints. Good value in June.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2011

I guess one takes a much more rosy view of everything if the weather was wonderful and the last days of September 2011 (and early October come to that) certainly exceeded all expectations. I guess that to be in the mountains of all places in the Autumn and have cloudless skies each day and for it to be beautifully warm as well, is a rare gift. And we were delighted we chose to stay at Notre Maison. (In fact, this being the low season many hotels were already shut and Notre Maison was due to close for 8 weeks soon after we left)

We chose the grade of room that also gave us a table and two armchairs. We did this so that we could buy local produce and have lunch there if we wished - something we did on two of the days, so it was a good thing we did so. What was strange about the room was the balcony. It gave a wonderful view of the mountains but was furnished with a single deckchair plus a single hard upright kitchen chair! It didn't bother us at all because it was far too hot to sit out there in the sun anyway and I guess they would have improved things if we had asked.

The food in the restaurant was excellent and you could, if you wished, eat your way through the full number of courses without restriction under the demi-pension arrangement.

And there was one unusual aspect that will always stay in our memory regarding this hotel. Although it was a typical 'Alpine' building - all wood and cosiness - the bar offered a most amazing and comprehensive cocktail menu. And I mean large well-known cocktails as opposed to some of the fancy dressed-up mixes one frequently encounters. But what is more the charming young lady who mixed and served these inexpensive cocktails was the most expert cocktail maker we have ever encountered in a hotel environment (as opposed to a specialist cocktail establishment). It was a treat we looked forward to each evening.

If there was one thing to criticise in the hotel - and being Tripadvisor one must be as honest as one can - it would be the breakfast. In years past one was often offered quite a simple breakfast of the type eaten by the local inhabitants. But more recently hotels have aimed at a sort of 'catch-all' spread that caters for international taste. I suppose one could say that this is what Notre Maison was aiming to do but in doing so it fell short on quality. Maybe such ingredients are not readily available in the remote valley. I don't know. Personally I like a simple breakfast but sadly Notre Maison fell short of the quality we had encountered in a far more simple establishment the other side of the border.

Never mind. The breakfast apart we loved our stay in this very friendly hotel and it certainly 'could' be one of our favourites - the 'could' only being used because I sadly cannot see that we would be likely to pass that way again.

We chose this hotel for a night's stopover en route based on other TripAdvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. Our standard room was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean and the pool, sauna and hamman offered welcome relaxation after a long journey. The restaurant offers good regional cuisine, with a wide choice of dishes and a lengthy wine list including local wines that are hard to find outside the region. While we did not have much time for sightseeing we managed an excursion to the Lillaz falls - definitely worth a visit - as well as a stroll around the picturesque centre of Cogne. Splendid weather made this a memorable excursion.

It's hard to think of what's wrong with this hotel. It's one of the best I've ever stayed in. Staff very friendly and very helpful. Location in the Gran Paradiso national park is wonderful. The restaurant is very good, lots of tasty, local and international dishes and an excellent wine list including many wines of the Valle d'Aosta which are not normally available outside the region and with a very reasonable mark-up. A generously-sized room (number 13 - we were told 17 is the unlucky number in Italy!), balcony overlooking the valley and the mountains. We stayed eight days and didn't get in the least bored with the hotel.

I cannot comment on the hotel itself as we changed after they cancelled our confirmed rooms and then offered cheaper inferior rooms instead.
