Just got back with the family from a week-long stay at Hotel Chamois. This was part of a Alpine Elements package activity holiday (to be reviewed later, separately).
What can I say? We had a delightful holiday, and enjoyed our stay here tremendously. The hotel is at the end of town, just a few minutes walk from the local bars etc. Nice and quiet, barely a sound to be heard in the evening, which suited me just fine. That said, Les Gets is not exactly a party town :)
The weather turned (in our favour) upon arrival, after the wettest Summer in 30-40 years (so we were told), which meant we were able to take full advantage of the amazing location and activities on offer.
The rooms (we had 2: two adults, two children) were absolutely fine, well appointed, in fact we were surprised to get get 2 separate rooms, and not the usual cramped 'family' rooms that bigger package holiday companies offload. And the grown-ups' room had a wet room too, which was fantastic to have available after a hard day trekking across the mountains on our bikes.
Staff were just lovely - chatty, smiley, attentive and easy to have a conversation with and ask questions, get directions/advice etc. Brilliant.
The restaurant & food: wow! A 3-course delight every evening? Yes please. The chef, Alan, is to be commended, the food is king in this place, and all I can say is it's possibly the most consistently good dining I've ever had the pleasure of being served, bar none. Every evening brought something new, and all of the family (kids' included) enjoyed it (and looked forward to it each day). A photo of our Friday evening's menu is attached. Drinks were extra but not so expensive as to break the bank, e.g. a bottle of very tasty sauvignon blanc was about 20 Euro.
Would I return to Hotel Chamois? The answer is a resounding Yes. This was our first activity family holiday in the Alps, and I feel like we were lucky in most respects, helped in large part by our choice of accommodation. Hotel Chamois and its restaurant and staff were the icing on the holiday cake.
