Reviewed 9 April 2014

I really can't rate this hotel highly enough. My husband and I got married in March this year. After being told sternly by my mother that on no account should I go skiing and risk breaking a leg before the wedding, we settled on a last minute weekend away at the beginning of April. As soon as we arrived at the hotel, we were immediately transported into the kind of warm friendly atmosphere you might expect if you were visiting old friends. Ilze, the exceptionally helpful receptionist who I’d booked through, was there to welcome us. She introduced us to Johnny (head of housekeeping) who took us up to our beautiful room and showed us around. After a brief walk through the town before dinner, we tried out Indigo bar, which is connected to the hotel, where we quickly met the owner Peter and barman Dom – again, I can’t express enough how welcome we were made to feel in such a short space of time. The chef, Alan, provides yet another unique string to this hotel’s bow – the food is outstanding! With regards to the time of year, I was a little concerned that the snow might not be great so late in the season, but we had no need to worry. A few of the runs were closed, but there was still plenty available to us and beautiful sunny days. All in all, we couldn’t have picked a better place to stay and cannot wait to go back next year.

It was an absolute pleasure to look after you during your mini-moon and we're delighted that you've taken the time to review your stay with us. Most of our guests make their reservations through Ilze and she welcomes everyone like long lost friends! We're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us, especially since it was towards the end of the season, which in our humble opinion, is one of the best times to ski. Please come back and see us again soon - congratulations once again from the whole Chamois d'Or team.

A warm welcome on arrival, hotel staff are very efficient, friendly and extremely welcoming, the whole team can not do enough for you, Dinner was superb the chef and the whole kitchen team put a lot of preparation and thought into the menu, this visit we managed to get back in time for afternoon tea which was a delight, enjoyed the bar before and after dinner, will defiantly be back to stay again hopefully next season. Thanks again for making our stay a great holiday.

Room Tip: We liked the room with the balcony, I think this was number 14.

We were a group of 4 guys having a 4 day skiing break leaving the families at home. our goal was to ski/snowboard hard all day then sleep & repeat.

On arrival we were instantly at ease, where some hotels of this standard are pompous & uncomfortable, the Chamois d'or is the polar opposite, All the staff are very friendly & accommodating, nothing is to much!

The rooms we had were very comfortable & clean & the perfect size for a ski break.

I know everyone has said it on here but the food is amazing, most of us work in London & eat well but Alan honestly served up the best meals we have ever had. He goes out each day & buys the freshest ingredients for that days taster menu & this was always a topic of conversation on the lifts; wondering what dishes we would be having that night & he never ever disappointed!!!
Breakfast was cooked fresh with lots of options (Alan thanks for Sundays special!!).....then there's the home made cake in the afternoon to top all that.

The restaurant & bar are very well stocked with a great variety of wine & drinks, which meant we spent a lot more time drinking than we had planned chatting with Pete the owner, staff & other guests into the early hours.

I can't rate this hotel high enough, really looking forward to going back with the family next year.

Thanks & well done Pete & team, keep up the fantastic work.

Hi Carl - just the title of your review makes us smile! When we re-opened the hotel in December for the impending winter season our objective was to create the 'perfect ski break' and we're delighted that we're doing just that. The hotel has become really popular for group short breaks this winter, probably because we're so close to Geneva airport and because we offer flexibility when it comes to arrival and departure dates. Please do get in touch if you'd like us to make a reservation for next winter. And thanks once again for your lovely review.

The first congratulatory point about this hotel was their efficiency in dealing with our booking. We contacted the hotel directly, with our requirements, and they responded quickly and proficiently in order to facilitate our request for a room with a balcony.

Upon arrival we were welcomed with flair and friendliness from the front of house staff - nothing was too much trouble. We felt immediately relaxed and put at ease, which continued throughout our trip.

Living in the Middle East we are used to 5* service, but nothing compared to the personalised and friendly welcome we received upon meeting any member of the Chamois d'Or team during the course of our stay.

As mentioned by other guests, the food is just phenomenal!! Each dish lovingly prepared with thought and executed to Michelin standard. The wine list was extensive, and it was easy to pair each dish with a selection of offerings by the glass or bottle.

The bar was a friendly, lively spot, where afternoon tea was served post-ski, if you weren't quite ready for the apres ski, and with a good selection of cocktails, beers and wines on offer. The staff could make knowledgable recommendations and would remember your favourite selections during the course of your stay. Members of staff, and owners, of this boutique hotel could be found in the bar after their shifts which allowed you to mingle in a less formal setting, and made each guest feel like part of the Chamois d'Or family.

It really is the staff that make this venue so wonderful and memorable - Well done guys!!!

We were meeting up with another couple here & we all agreed that we had the best holiday ever, and we would be returning next year to this wonderful Alpine haven - Can't wait!

Many thanks to you all

Jane & Graham

Upgraded on arrival to the most beautiful penthouse apartment, which was just the start!
Every part of the hotel is a design haven of Alpine Chic without being OTT, from the fur clad doors to the beautiful toiletries,
The food is out of this world Michelin quality with the bar bringing cosmopolitan style, which neither can be found anywhere else in Les Gets.
But what really made the holiday was the staff, they go out of their way to please and are all so friendly. We got engaged whilst we were there and they made it even more memorable, bringing us breakfast in bed to decorating our table at dinner!
We travel a lot and this really is one the best boutique hotels we've been to and never been able to find anywhere else in the Alps and is just the best value for money, I really don't know how they do it!
We cannot wait to return and are already planning when that is!

Thanks for your lovely review of our hotel, we're delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. Indeed, the Hotel Chamois d'Or started the winter season as a 'hidden gem' but judging from the feedback we've had on TripAdvisor, we're unlikely to stay that way! Just so you know, we can also do 'huge extravagance' too, but only when we spot an opportunity (the lovely couple who got engaged last week had a very extravagant champagne breakfast in bed fir example!).

We're looking forward to welcoming you back to the hotel soon.

What can I say about Le Chamois d'Or Hotel & Spa? Firstly, there's no spa: it's apparently coming, but whilst the discovery of its absence caused my travelling partner and I much angst prior to our holiday, in reality we hardly noticed it because there were so many other ways to keep ourselves entertained. Ok, our room was a little on the pokey side, but had a nice double aspect balcony with views of the village and mountains and a great modern bathroom (the hotel has been recently entirely refurbed and it shows) with a super powerful shower (just what you need after a day on the slopes). But the rooms are not why you visit Le chamois d'Or, and after all, on a ski holiday, very little time is spent in the room. No, it's the hotel itself that is the gem, and by that I don't mean the fancy animal skin themed decor or the subtly lit funky bar, it's the friendly, sometimes almost familial atmosphere which makes the hotel appealing to return to every day. The management team and staff could easily star in their own reality TV show documenting the trials and tribulations of life 'on the piste' (in more ways than one) and the welcome we received from this eclectic bunch of soon-to-be celebs was unparalleled in its friendliness and openness. And then we get to the food.... At this point, I wonder if I should stop, for fear of revealing the truth which will cause the chamois d'Or to treble their half board prices, but oh well... It is in a word, breathtaking. No, they don't mention on their website or through the agents they use to sell their rooms that their chef trained in a Michellin starred kitchen, or that he has maintained that impeccable attention to detail in his cleverly constructed and beautifully executed menu every evening. From delicate fruit gels, spiced savory jams, exquisite veloutés and mouthwatering meats, to ice cream to die for, an inspired construction of a 'shepherds pie fritter' as an amuse bouche, or delicious afternoon tea cakes. The chef has it made. Hey: he even makes superb poached eggs. Faultless aside from its occasional ingredient repetition, the food is every bit as significant in a skiing experience at the chamois d'Or as the quality of the snow.

So go, go now to meet the crazy team before they're all z list reality tv stars in the UK, and before the owners hoik up the prices to reflect the incredible food. Who knows, the spa might even be open.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review your stay with us so extensively. We're really looking forward to welcoming you back to the hotel for our New Year celebrations next winter. Maybe we'll be able to tempt you back for a summer break too?

Indeed, there are currently no wet spa facilities at the hotel, although we do have massage and beauty therapists on-call for our guests. We do make a point of communicating this to all of our guests in advance of their arrival, fingers crossed the complete spa set-up will be ready when you next visit us.

We're delighted that you were able to relax and enjoy your stay in one of our Classic bedrooms. Future travellers should note that larger Prestige bedrooms are also available for a small supplement.

The stand-out experience of your stay was clearly the friendliness of our team, who've been trained to be that correct blend of friendly, helpful and fun, while at the same time as skilled, professional and useful. Despite the hilarity that might ensue from a fly-on-the-wall Channel 4 documentary, I can pretty much guarantee that you won't see any of us on the telly any time soon.

Thanks again!
