Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It’s always a great experience to spend a day or more in this beautiful family hotel and restaurant .We came a few years ago and found it very comfortable but now with the renovations that took place in 2020 it’s really an amazing place where to spend an holiday . Mountain / Modern decorated rooms with all the comforts ,even table and chairs on the balconies ,and amazing pool and spa ,you can also book a massage .For me the highlight was the wonderfully decorated ,modern rustic restaurant and the special fresh and also creative at times food . Copious dishes arrived at our table without a long wait ,dishes beautifully presented and full of fresh ingredients from the area .The breakfast was superb ,you can make your own hot drinks or a fresh juice,freshly baked desserts and breads that go with cheeses of the area or cold cuts ,yogurts and crème caramel …
On top of all a the exquisite kindness of the owners and everyone who works in this real gem .

Very nice hotel, combining modern design with authenticity. Very friendly staff, the family Trincaz makes you feel at home. We really had a very nice short ski @ Les Gentianettes. Breakfast was very good, and the VIP bus service of the hotel a very nice extra to get to the slopes.

Clean, quite and comfy room, nice location, hike + bike possibilities.
Large breakfast selection, good restaurant but expensive if you don't take the menu.

If you are an experienced traveler you know very well what 3, 4or 5 stars means.
This hotel is not a 4 stars as it fails at 2 major points as far as hospitality:
- the service is very poor: empty reception, the personnel( even the lady owner) improperly dressed for their function, and the ATTITUDE is unbelievably RUDE. It was my first time in my life when a waiter thrown me the dish and the cutlery. I asked to see the owner and she refused to come to discuss. When i met her at the reception and i asked if we can speak in English she “ executed” me with a definite NO. And then, while passing by the waitresses who got mad at me , they mocked me …
Of course, it is my mistake because i have not understood French. But, at no moment i was rude , on the contrary.
- the room: the size is not the problem ( we are in France!). The lack if proper 4 stars amenities as missing: no minibar, no complementary water, no coffee machine, no body lotion & hair conditioner. The towels are very used. The no door bathroom has no logic both as functionality or design! The room is quite poor as design , but the bathroom is vey large and it seems that belongs to another hotel room. The pillow are too high and square (60x60) - a no go for hotels.

The guests who are able& willing to pay +250 euro/ night have better& nicer personal houses. They appreciate more THE SERVICE. If this does not raise to the expected level…

Top quality hotel with very friendly and helpful staff which has recently been extensively refurbished. High quality food in restaurants. Breakfast a little expensive but otherwise could not fault our 4 night stay.

We are disappointed of this hotel!!!we read all the positive reviews and though it looks all right and the food is ok we didn't spend a good time there! The family that ownes this business has some problems which are felt by the customers also!!!not at all professional and you can't feel the warmth of a small family business cause there isn't any! we witnessed also an episode of fight between the lady owner and a client which really scared us!!!Don't go there, this is my advice!

We stayed here for 7 nights, had a fantastic time, the hotel is 50 metres from the lift. Breakfast is continental , plentiful and just what i like, fresh croissants and french bread every morning. Mmmmmmm. Perfect view of the mountains. Hotel very clean, we were in room no. 2 lots of space could not have asked for more. Staff very pleasant . Bar area very nice...... Would recommend this place without a doubt. X

My wife and I stayed here in late March 2015. The staff was friendly and helpful. They had recommendations for all our ski questions (which slopes to ski, where to rent, etc.)

We arrived after the ski area in La Chapelle had no more snow. However, there is bus service from La Chapelle to the base of the Chatel gondola for only 1.5 euros per person that leaves from the tourist office that is half a block from the front door of the hotel.

The restaurant was a welcome surprise. I knew they had a restaurant but I did not expect to want to eat dinner there all four nights. The variety and quality of the menu made it very easy to come back each night for dinner. By the second night the staff recognized us and provided a friendly smile and recommendations for dinner and wine.

The room was compact but had LOTS of storage. Our room had a double bed and bunk beds. Everywhere we looked there were some drawers or a closet to store clothes, ski gear, etc. so we never felt cramped.
