We've just returned our first Inghams holiday - a week in Chamonix. It's fair to say that previous reviews helped us make our decision to go here in late September (and risk a forecasted 70% chance of ran) rather than a nice beach holiday and we're both delighted. Waking up every day to a Mount Blanc view is something i'm still getting used to being without!
From the moment we arrived in the airport and hotel, the Inghams staff we're just so helpful and accommodating. It's also worth pointing out that in our mid 20's we were well below the average age of guests at the hotel, but this didn't matter - everyone is encouraged to meet before dinner and at the weekly pub quiz.
The food is absolutely amazing. If the same chef is present at that hotel in the winter, then you cannot go wrong. The only slight disappointment is the Friday barbecue in the summer (i'd have rather another night of full meal).
We also went to watch the local ice hockey team play, and again the staff were friendly enough to give us an express vip service so that we made it on time.
We would recommend this to anyone, and go back tomorrow! Oh and the weather was much nicer than forecasted!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Arguably the best located hotel in Chamonix. The Savoy nursery slopes are literally just over the road from the hotel, from where the Savoy téléski lift whisks you up to the Brévent gondola, to access one of the best intermediate areas in the resort.Alternatively, the ski-bus to Chamonix's other ski areas stops just 50m away. The hotel's attractive dining room has semi-circular bay windows with stunning views of Mont Blanc. Here you will enjoy Inghams great choice of menus and complimentary quality wines for dinner. Inghams offer the conviviality of larger tables for chalet-style dining with your fellow guests, or the opportunity to dine à deux should you wish. The atmospheric lounge/bar welcomes you for your pre-dinner apéritif and canapés, or to relax after dinner over coffee and a night-cap ... more less
