I stayed here for a long weekend of skiing with my Dad last week. It is a fantastic location, just a few minutes walk to the main bus station which takes you to all the ski areas. You can also easily walk to the train station and the lovely town centre. L'Aguille de Midi lift is next door....this trip is a must. However definitely not for the faint hearted, I witnessed many grown men shaking!!
The staff are fantastic at the hotel, incredibly helpful and friendly. There is brilliant ski hire shop near reception which we thought was very reasonable and made a very easy job of kitting yourself out.
I didn't take my children but there was a great kids area with playroom, tv, fridge stocked with juice etc which I'm sure would be a good hang out for little ones. In response to a negative comment I saw before travelling here, we didn't notice any children at the hotel at all so I can only put that down to traveling in school holidays.
Breakfast was great, there wasn't anything missing that you would usually expect. Of course the highlight of the hotel has to be the spa... It was the perfect place to go after a day skiing.
We had a fantastic trip to Chamonix, the only thing I would say is that we have only been skiing a few times before and found skiing here quite challenging ... It's probably not the best place for beginners. However the hotel, town, sights and people make it worth the visit anyway!!!
