A fantastic hotel in a great position. Staff can't do enough. Yes, the hotel is a little old but all the important things are in place: Good food, comfy beds, convenient boot room and near the slopes. Highly recommended and i have been using this type of hotel for over 30 years

Ignore the hype this place is a dump, the heating doesn't work, the plumbing is awful and the electrics are downright dangerous. The floor in our room was filthy, the radiators didn't work, we had two fan heater which are noisy and dangerous, the patio doors don't lock or close properly and so there is a constant gale blowing.

We visited La Sapinere with Inghams the week before Christmas 2016. Although there was a slight lack of snow, the Inghams reps were excellent at assisting us and became good friends during our stay. The hotel, although a little dated, was perfect for us. We were travelling as a group of 7 adults and 6 children! The children were welcomed...

La Sapiniere is a charming, friendly place and we have just spent an extremely happy Christmas there. The hotel is old and a bit tired and would benefit from some new pipe work! However, the staff were fantastic and welcoming and it was always warm and very clean. A special mention must go to Will, the Assistant Manager, for his...

Good hotel, good staff, good food, keep up the good work. If you get a good room facing mount blonk what more do you need. The food and staff was good they were friendly and good humoured and the wine flowed if you wanted.

I can only reiterate all the positive remarks made in previous reviews. Whilst the hotel itself is not 4 star luxury the Inghams team made it a 4 star experience. We had a wonderful time at La Sapiniere and were very sad to say goodbye to Chamonix, and the lovely people we had met, when our week ended. The hotel...

It was purely by chance that we ended up in Chamonix on this family holiday with my two daughters, 22 and 20. While confident it would suit my husband and I, I was anxious that it wasn't an ideal holiday choice for the girls. However from the moment we arrived the warmth of the welcome alongside the vitality and friendliness...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Arguably the best located hotel in Chamonix. The Savoy nursery slopes are literally just over the road from the hotel, from where the Savoy téléski lift whisks you up to the Brévent gondola, to access one of the best intermediate areas in the resort.Alternatively, the ski-bus to Chamonix's other ski areas stops just 50m away. 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. The atmospheric lounge/bar welcomes you for your pre-dinner apéritif and canapés, or to relax after dinner over coffee and a night-cap ... more   less
