Have just recently returned from a weeks skiing holiday staying at this Inghams chalet holiday. We had a lovely time. Staff really are excellent in all aspects - courteous, polite, respectful, friendly and good fun. The food is excellent and the sous chef amazing. We stayed in room 36 which had beautiful views over Mont Blanc. We were on the 1st floor close to the boot room and lift but it did not keep us awake as others have commented. We had a bath which is a must for skiing. Except for the first night when we got back late and there was no hot water after that we always made sure we showered/bathed as soon as we came in. Our biggest downfall with Chamonix was the length of time it took to walk and catch buses to travel to the 4 different ski areas that link Chamonix it took about an hour or more. Buses were overcrowded and you end up standing and exhausted. Taxi 's were impossible. I would like to suggest to Inghams to put on a mini bus or two and make a charge. People tend to leave for skiing at different times and having stayed previously in small hotels that provide this service it would make all the difference and then might encourage me to return. We took the option and paid to ski on the last day with Luke the resort manager in Courmeyer in Italy. Well worth it and highly recommended we had a super day and met some lovely people. The Sapiniere is in a good location and walking distance into Chamonix which is a beautiful village.
- 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
