Just back from spending a week in the Sapiniere with a couple of friends (and thanks to the welcoming, friendly environment, made more!). My holiday coincided with my birthday, and I couldn't think of a better place to spend it! I want to go back!! :(
The staff were amazing - friendly, accommodating and professional. We were very impressed at how seamless our transfer was - the bus was already waiting at Geneva, and Gareth, the rep, was there to welcome us, help with our baggage and sort out our lift passes. When we arrived at the accommodation, we were greeted and assisted by all of the other staff in the same manner - from being checked in by Helen at reception, to being served by all the waiting, house keeping and catering staff - the two Charlottes, Kirstie, James, Beth, Dan and the guys in the kitchen were all brilliant! Thanks to Luke and Tommy, the rep and manager also, who were great points of contact for any questions or assistance. In fact, all of the staff had a great knowledge of the local area, were happy to give up some of their free time to take us around the town, and gave us great tips about where and how to spend our time!
There were plenty of excursions available through Inghams - we just wished we had the time to fit them all in. We went on the bar crawl and the day trip to Courmayeur in Italy, both which were so much fun. The staff put on a pub quiz, too, which was a great way to meet the other guests, and let the competitive side out! Apart from that, the food, wine and cocktails were brilliant, the rooms were spotless... Could not be faulted!

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.
