“Excellent position and great amenities”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 via mobile

In this beautiful valley city there are many hotels, but We were very happy with the presentation, amenities and position of Auberge Du Manoir. It is within easy walking distance of the city centre, has a good patisserie just over the road for those who don't want to have the hotel breakfast. Easy to get to all of Chamonix tourist attractions, helpful staff and a very nice room. The view from our balcony of Mt Blanc was wonderful and the full bath in the bathroom was appreciated after a day of walking. Would definitely return.

Auberge du Manoir was simply perfect. We spent two lovely nights in the cutest room you can imagine, very Alpine in decor, spotless, and thoroughly comfortable. The friendly owners made us very welcome and and speak English well. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast each morning in their equally charming breakfast room. The homemade yogurt was outstanding and I loved the gourmet cheeses, too. (breakfast is extra but worth it). They also recommended a wonderful restaurant for our second night here. Be sure to ask. Beds are comfortable, and we enjoyed our private balconies. Chamonix is a very pretty town and we wished we could have stayed longer, as there is lots to do in the area. This hotel well deserves all the great reviews on tripadvisor. It was the first booking we secured for our 2 week trip and did not disappoint. C'est magnifique!!!!

Room Tip: Corner rooms with view toward mountain are exceptional. Ask for lowest floor if you have difficulty...

In a nutshell: if you're lucky enough and you can find available room, don't hesitate, book it :) . As soon as you arrive, you'll feel like home, with a special view and decor, of course. We've stayed in room #6., which is the best in our opinion, double balcony, perfect view to the Mont-Blanc. We could not wait the mornings, because of the breakfast - the coffee is more than perfect, just as the mattress, one of the best bed of our trips, incl. 9 US states. City center 3-5 min walk. The staff/owners are very helpful, committed to unique decor, and they always do the extra mile for their guests to make this place a really special resort. Oh, almost forget: the owners' dog, she's an adorable cute old lady ;) Highly recommended!

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 tweens) stayed here for 2 nights. Our room included bunk beds for our children. Although our room didn't include a balcony we had a lovely view from the window. The staff was incredibly helpful, and their english much appreciated! Breakfast was plentiful and delicious! The hotel is in a perfect location to explore Chamonix. Everything was within walking distance, including a wonderful bakery that opens at 0600 and stays open later in the evening! The hotel also offers free parking for guests who have a car. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night visit...we even used the outdoor ping pong table!!! We would definitely stay here again:)

There isn't much negative to say about this place. The rooms were quite comfortable and perfectly maintained, and lovingly decorated in old-fashioned "mountain style". The staff were all quite friendly and helpful. There were a number of extra touches that made it extra special such as an excellent shower (so many hotel showers are cramped, or have poor water pressure or poor shower heads, but not this one), a retractable clothesline in the shower, balconies with a view of Mont Blanc, and excellent home-made yogurt in a wide variety of flavors at the breakfast buffet. It's true it's near a major road, but the road noise was quiet enough that it didn't bother us even with the windows open when we were sleeping. The location is great, too; just a couple of blocks from the central pedestrian area, so it was convenient but without the noise of the central area, and an easy walk from the main train station. About the only negatives were that the beds seemed harder to us than most, and the breakfast buffet (which costs extra) doesn't start until 8:00, which is a bit late for early risers.

We stayed at this hotel based on it's "Top Choice" rating in our Lonely Planet guide. We were so surprised at the low quality that we felt we needed to write something on Trip Advisor.

This hotel is "OK". It is right next to the highway so the road noise is pretty significant. Yes, there are great views if you can ignore the cars whizzing by, but this is a major issue and a huge source of noise for the balconies. Our room reeked of incense when we checked in and we complained about the smell but the owner (who is portrayed as nice in most reviews) was pretty dismissive of our complaints and said that we were overreacting to the smell. Our room was a suite with a balcony but we would describe it as "cozy" and incredibly cramped compared with the other rooms that we had stayed in at villages around Chamonix.

Thank you for your comments. Our records indicate that you stayed with us on July 17th.
The room you stayed in was the last one available in the hotel on that day, and we would recommend that you make a reservation next time, especially if you wish to have a bigger room, or a suite. Regarding your comments about the scents, you certainly know that most traditional houses and chalets are made of wood. Woody scents are very common around here, and contribute to the memories of your travel in the French Alps. In any case, thank you for your stay and you will be welcome here any time!

We were staying in Auberge du Manoir for 7 nights at the end of July and right now consider this place to be our second home. It's a cosy,charming savoie chalet perfectly located in Chamonix. There is no disturbing noise (and I'm a picky sleeper) even though it's close to one of the main intersections; every day we were enjoying warm summer evenings on our flower filled balcony with magnificent view of Mount Blanc.
This little hotel is pristine clean and very beautifully decorated; a lot of design thoughts were given to every detail - from overall exterior elevation and surroundings to tiny pebble stone knife rests in the dining room.
Every morning there is an amazing buffet type breakfast served in the dining room; warm sweet pastries, pumpkin seed bread and home made honey joghurt were my favourites.
But what really makes you feel like at home is the warmth and personal touch of Muriel and Frederic. We felt welcomed from the moment of their greeting upon our arrival till sad farewell; it was like visiting the family or best friends.
Auberge du Manoir is one of those few places that I call "tourist-friendly". Contrary to big, "mass-production" mega-hotel establishments that lack flexibility and so much appreciated personal touch this charming little place offers wide spectrum of personalised services and most of all friendly family atmosphere.
Everything is thoughtfully prepared and waiting to please the guests - comfortable beds with crispy duvet covers (not just loose sheets!), fabulous breakfast, bubling hot tub, cold Leffe on the tap, quiet common day room, lift passes to purchase and even umbrellas for rainy days.
We truly enjoyed all of the above; unfortunately umbrellas too.
Thanks Muriel and Frederic.
We will be back soon.

Room Tip: Get the room with MB view. It's really worth it. Also - some rooms feature small fridge; very u...
