Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

The chalet is situated in Vallorcine which is a little further up the valley, from Chamonix, the hosts, Steve & Helen, were fantastic! Really lovely and you really do feel as if you in a home away from home they are so welcoming and relaxed. The chalet decor is contemporary and still has that lovely comfortable feel to it with the wood burning stove and open plan kitchen/living/dining areas.

Helens cooking is fantastic and she is happy to accommodate your personal preferences. The food was delicious, breakfast had a huge selection of jams, croissants and a cooked selection too- again all to your preference. We came back from the slopes every day to homemade cakes, and before dinner Helen provided appetisers of pâté, cured meats and salami.

Supper itself was a three course meal, of which our favourites were the prawns Helen had smoked herself and also the homemade Roquefort sauce with steak and dauphinois! All absolutely delicious.

We could not have had a more wonderful stay at The Guest house, the rooms and beds are so warm and comfortable. The huge free standing bath was also a treat for sore ski legs in the evening.

The location of The Guest House is in close proximity to lifts and Steve and Helen have been very happy to take us places as well as organise airport transfers. They also have parking space for the car as some of us drove and some of us flew.

All in all we had the most perfect week at The Guest House, we could not recommend it enough. Steve and Helen do an absolutely grand job as hosts, the location, decor and food also have left us pining for a return trip.

I have been several times in Chamonix and the guest house is the most fantastic place in the valley! The hosts Helen and Steve are giving you what you are looking for on a holiday- service, good food and a house with cosy atmosphere. The house is situated close to the trainstation and ski lifts in Vallrocine and has the most stunning view you ever can dream of, A place to be highly recommended!

Beautiful guest house where you feel part of the family! Ideally situated and great for any group of people. Steve and Helen can't do enough to make your stay the perfect trip. Near the slopes, but away from the road. Cracking views of the mountains from the dining table and lounge. Cannot wait to come back.

Fantastic guest house where you are definitely made to feel part of the family. Lovely location, with a short walk into the village and access to some fantastic ski areas, which were great for our children. Cosy living room to relax in and Helen's cooking was manifique!! Helen & Steve are fantastic hosts and we will definitely be back next year!

This is a wonderful guest house and would highly recommend if you are looking for a home from home in the alps? This is a classic chalet with a beautiful modern interior, tucked away in the pituresque Vallorcine valley. We have stayed here before and love it. Helen and Steve are fantastic hosts. you can do self catered, B&B or catered. Helens cooking is superb, the rooms are so comfortable and beautifully decorated. the sitting room is homely and relaxing. There is skiing in the area suitable for all abilities from beginners to the the Valle Blanche for the most adventurous. Don't think twice - book it before someone else does!!!!!!

Room Tip: Small family run guest house all the rooms are excellent.

We found this place whilst searching for a ski area that was good for beginners and intermediates. The Guest House in a great location, it's tucked away from the main road so there's no noise from passing cars (or the snowplough truck!) and it's only 2 minutes drive from the Vallorcine bubble lift which takes you up into Tete de Balme.

Helen & Steve are also very welcoming and you feel right at home in no time. There is a common living area which has a very warm log burner that makes the room nice and cosy! Close by are some tasty restaurants (make sure to reserve a table, Helen was kind enough to make reservations for us)

And if you're thinking of staying here and are struggling to decide which books to pack, don't! The Guest house has sooooo many books & magazines about the house to choose from you'll not know where to start!

Room Tip: We stayed in a room with a separate bathroom (still our own, since other rooms had their own). Maybe...

This was our 2nd stay at The Guesthouse Chamonix and we wish we could visit every year. We love the location, the rooms and the breakfast. The guesthouse truly feels like home and we are so comfortable that we never want to leave. Helen and Steve are helpful, friendly and make their guests feel like family. I highly recommend The Guesthouse to anyone that visits the Chamonix area; in winter or summer. They will not be disappointed.
