Chamonix Lodge
Reviewed 4 February 2013

We stayed at Chalet Mammoth in Chamonix and were very unhappy with the service of the company, Montain Highs. We were very disappointed with the accomodation, catering and company as a whole.
The food was incredibly low standard. No cleaning was done during our stay. There were heating and lighting problems. There were very many issues we could list that we had complaints about but the company addressed them in a very poor and unproffessional manor, by lying their way out of them.
We would like to voice our disappointment with our holiday booked with Montain Highs and we would definately NOT recommend this company to book your holiday with.

Me and my wife stayed here for a family wedding. The family hired all 3 chalets out and I must say the other 2 didn't seem so bad. We stayed in Christol in room 8 and I must say it was the pits. The bathroom was tiny, there were more flies around than a landfill site. The window in the room was the the smallest i've ever seen. Now the kitchen, don't even get me started on that it was like being in a pub kitchen. If i'm honest it took some of the shine of our stay in Chamonix. Ignore the website it has some clever photography and they don't show you the bad places which if i'm honest is most places. It doesn't get any better outside, dogs wandering around the grounds, the decking was dangerously loose. What tops it all off is they had complete strangers staying in the basement of the Chalet. There's plenty of high quality accommodation in Chamonix so my advice is give this place a wide birth.

I organised a trip for about 15 people to Chalet Mammoth, part of the Mountain Highs company. It was easy to make contact with the owner, and we were able to make "stage payments" and add people on after the original booking was made.
Airport transfers were included and we were picked up, hassle-free, at Geneva airport. The chalet was warm and inviting when we arrived - up a laneway about a mile out of Chamonix Sud.
The chalet staff were incredibly friendly and served up fabulous food. The rooms were nicely decorated (if small) and the majority had en suite bedrooms. There was a large hot tub and sauna in the back garden (keep clean if you want to avoid the charges for cleaning!). We were bussed to the slopes every day (a necessity if you are in Chamonix) and picked up at a time of our choosing which was very handy. Overall, great experience and I would return.
