“Lovely modern hotel with Michelin star restaurant next door.”
Reviewed 12 July 2010

We stayed for one night as part of a road trip. We had wanted to get the cable car to the top of Mont Blanc but the visibilty was not good enough. We enjoyed the sauna/pool within the hotel and the foyer and restaurant next door were beautifully furnished - clean lines and lots of wood! This hotel is in easy walking distance of the shops within the centre. I have never stayed in such a comfy bed is was huge!

As others have commented, le Morgane is the kind of high quality business hotel which one could happily stay in anywhere on the continent. It’s a very good individual Best Western (a chain with which I’ve had mixed experiences over the years). But it also caters very well for skiers (storage room for boots and skis, handy for the relevant connections ), and has touches which are a kind of modern twist on the classic Alpine theme (the fires, for example, are where you’d expect them to be, but are in keeping with the cool, modern, minimalist decor – none of your gemuetlich nonsense here). There’s a reasonably-proportioned salon in which you can use a free internet connection (there’s also free wi-fi in the rooms). I could see this being a good location for a certain kind of corporate ski-weekend bonding experience.

Our room (a superior) was, in common with the experience reported by almost all reviewers, very tightly-proportioned (except, oddly enough, in the entrance lobby to the room, where there was lots of unusable space). The bathroom was particularly small (though this was at least partly the result of the odd, but not unwelcome, separation of toilet from bathroom). The toiletries were high-end. The beds were really comfortable, and (very much appreciated when space is tight) had no sharp edges and corners on which to hurt oneself. There was a small balcony, which is probably nice in summer, though not really of much use in winter.

The food was excellent. The things you’d expect to be good about breakfasts in France (which is basically all the food which they themselves would eat) did not disappoint. Even the egg-boiler (a perpetual challenge in continental hotels) worked faultlessly. I can’t vouch for any other kind of breakfast stuff, since I tend not to eat it. The restaurant has a Michelin star, which speaks for itself (its popularity means that reservation is essential, though this tends to be true everywhere in France, even when you wouldn’t expect things to be busy – food being a secular religion for the French, its purveyors do rather insist on being treated with the respect they feel is their due, part of which involves anglo-saxons not simply bowling up and expecting a table as if it was their local chain eaterie).

The staff were, by and large, friendly and helpful. They very kindly did not charge us when we had to cancel an extra booked night in order to take alternative transport back to the UK following the Great Icelandic Cloud of Doom Panic which caused Eurocontrol to lose its marbles that week. As ever with the French, provided you play by their rules, you’ll do OK. Their English was almost always exceptionally good.

I’d recommend this hotel to anyone looking for value and quality in Chamonix.

Reviewed 11 April 2010

arrived by private tranfer from Geneva airport (50 mins 160 Euro) easy check in although bags were not taken to the room for us.
Hotel is in a good location.
Room modern, very clean, well equiped, they put a dvd player in the room as per our request.
The bathroom however is tiny and although the room is very nice it has the feel of an average hotel very nicely decorated. At 460 euro per night i have stayed in better hotels.
The restaurant in the hotel is fantastic for dinner. breakfast was included in the price. it was just better than average.
the staff were very friendly and helpful, they gave us excellent restaurant recommendations.
Massage at the spa was terrible, the therapist was inexperienced.
In summary it was a good hotel but i would also consider other hotels in this price bracket.

After six years returning to Chamonix, I can't believe I haven't found this hotel before. It will definately be one of my first options for future visits. Service was friendly and of a high standard without exception, and the spa was very welcome at the end of each day on the mountain.
Decor and cleanliness is of a high standard throughout. There are a number of restaurants and shops in the immediate area but it is only a short (5 min) walk to the centre of town. I would particularly recommend "La maison d'en bas" a restaurant only 50 yards from the hotel that offers excellent savoyard food slightly different from the usual fare.

The staff here at this hotel are very accommodating - Emily, Marianne, Zoran - everyone has been such a pleasure. The room is a junior suite - nice decor and very eco-friendly (need a key for the lights to work - something american hotels should do. Don't have anything bad to say - it was a wonderful trip made better by the wonderful hotel staff.

stopped here for 4 nights in march. Not your typical ski hotel- def worth the 4 stars. lovely beds, nice sauna/ steam and plunge pool.

location just off the main strip of a lovely town, not at all rough! some really nice restaurants nearby and ski bus stops literally outside of the hotel or a 5 min walk to main stop.
