If there is one thing that stands out for this hotel, it’s the staff and atmosphere they create. Sure, the building is a little tired in places and stairs a little creaky - but this hotel has more character and charm than many other places I have stayed in and will defiantly be remembered in a very positive way. The food is brilliant, both in quality and quantity, which on a ski holiday is right up there in importance. The staff were very welcoming and very helpful, going above and beyond their normal responsibilities, even helping us make sure our children got to ski school on time when my wife and I had to leave early for our lesson. For reference we are a family of 5 (children 6, 9 and 10) who had done 1 week of skiing previously. Whilst Chamonix is an amazing place to ski, it does take some logistical management to make it work for a family – and this is where La Sapiniere came into its own, as without its staff our holiday would have been a completely different experience. This is a great place to stay if you want a warm, engaging welcome. I also have to mention towel animals we had each night in our bedroom, our children would literally race home to see what the latest creation was! If you haven’t returned from a day’s skiing to find a towel elephant on your bed before – you have not lived!!!!

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.
