This place combines the best of Chalet for nice family weekend or mini-trip as well as business trips. Very flexible and client-focused. There is mini sport room with a sauna and hammam - very conviennent. Rooms combine the charm of local style: wood, mountain deco and the modern elements that any business travellers require: TV with international channels, comfortable shower and bath. The place is quiet and personnel is very flexible for late and early departure. Restaurant is a must test in the region.
We stopped here en route from Italy to the UK, we normally stop in Courmayeur but as it was completely out of season the majority of the hotels were closed, so we drove on for another hour and found this hotel. We had a room that was small (and very clean) with a bath and shower screen but the shower head was not fixed to the wall, so you have to wash one handed as you hold the shower in the other hand! The rooms are not sound proofed and you can hear lots of movement around the hotel. We were not keen on the faux fur throws and scatter cushions on the beds at this time in the middle of the pandemic, so we removed them as we got into the room. The meal was good as was the wine list and a nice self service, continental breakfast. If we found ourselves in a similar situation again with no where else to stay we would consider going back. We travel extensively on this route, staying in four and five star hotels. We consider this to be a reasonable 3 star, not a 4 star hotel (maybe next time with a little less eyebrow raising from the receptionist when we ask for help with our luggage).…
Did a cheeky overnight here so we could ski on Saturday. Lovely rooms, easy to find and dinner was just amazing. An early breakfast wasn’t possible but aside from that is a great choice and would certainly return!
Spent three nights here. Its like a wooden cabin feel in the room - very charming. The tubs are nice - I wish the showers were fixed. But over all nice rooms and bathrooms. The restaurant has some nice dishes and the mountain air will whet your appetite and you will appreciate it. Very welcoming staff, did their best to speak to us in English. The location can be a bit of drive off the highway. But enjoyed the visit. Thanks
Lovely view over a large, pretty parkland area and, of course, mountains. Rooms very comfortable, bathroom good, restaurant excellent. A fairly easy, flat stroll into Cluses, plenty of parking for the hotel,
We needed to find a hotel in the area at fairly short notice, so we weren’t choosing it for it’s beautiful picturesque surroundings. As we were attending an event a few kilometres away and returning only to stay the night all we required really was a decent bed, and as La Ferme du Lac is a Michelin recommended hotel we felt we would get that plus a lot more. We booked on-line, but as we would be arriving after the reception desk was closed we drove over to get a security number for the door. We were welcomed warmly by the woman at reception and although it was mid-morning our room was already available and we were able to leave our bags immediately rather than carrying them in when we expected to return, at about midnight. The room was clean and fresh smelling, with the toilet and wash facilities in separate rooms, and the bed was as good as we hoped. So that was the pros, but in the morning the cons crept in. When we opened the curtains the view of the mountains was also the view of an apartment block next door. OK, they can’t do much about that, but the view was also of an overflowing ashtray left on the terrace by a previous occupant. When we found that the hotel was Michelin recommended we thought there would be a bonus of getting a decent breakfast before we left on a long drive the following day. There was a reasonable choice of things available, but for instance the cheese and ham selections looked rather tired. There were jams, but several were in nearly empty jars, and coffee was not as good as we had had in a budget hotel earlier. We sat at a table in front of a door out onto the terrace. When we’d nearly finished a serving girl pushed by the back of my chair and opened the door; she propped it open for a couple who, despite it being a relatively cool day with light rain, wished to eat breakfast outside. She had said nothing to us and disappeared immediately, so my options were to close the door myself leaving the couple outside to open it again to get to the buffet, or for us to finish more quickly than was comfortable. There were several other tables available, some with chairs stacked on top, but we didn’t feel we wanted the disruption of changing tables. In reality if the staff anticipated that the door to the terrace might be open there was no need for the one we were at to have been placed in front of it. When we booked we saw that there was private parking available for 10€ a night, but public spaces locally for free. When we first drove over we saw the the “private” parking was just a space open to the public next to the chalet, and in fact one of the cars there was slightly stuck out into the public path anyway. We opted to park in the layby opposite, and could not understand why anyone would be expected to pay for the convenience of not having to cross the road to reach one’s car. We don’t stay in hotels that often, but these niggles were not what we expected of one recommended by Michelin and charging accordingly.…
We enjoyed our stay The hotel is well run, the rooms are clean and well looked after, the breakfast is ok We went up the mountain to ski in Mont Saxxonex which is just 10 mins away The restaurant menu isn't child friendly with most dishes above 18E We would stay again
Situated on the road opposite the park/ lake , quiet and pleasant enough area. View from the back is of the mountains. I had the ground room with my own deck. Loved it ! Other rooms have balconies Love staying here, rooms are fantastic, spacious with a comfy bed. The bed can be electrically adjusted to tilt. Shower was in a huge bathroom, spacious and good temperature. Could do with a little more pressure but... Wooden floors and some walls are decorated in wood , it's a nice touch and very clean. Not a speck on my bare feet after waking around , immaculate Staff friendly. Good bar area and its own restaurant. Prices I consider high and portions very small but for France I suspect it's normal but ... Would have expected more for an 8 euro starter though. Very poor portion size two bites and it had gone Breakfast typical continental. Nothing special and you have to keep going back to your table for a glass, a cup and a plate. Why not stack them by the food ? Love to stay not to eat Would recommend …
We just made a stop over after coming through the Mont Blanc tunnel when returning to UK. The room was good with a very pleasant balcony giving a view of the hills. There is a nice outdoor area by the restaurant that the weather encouraged us to use. The bar and restaurant are also good, but as with many places in France (and with the now lousy exchange rate)the prices seemed quite high - particularly breakfast. High charges for breakfast are a continuing complaint of mine in almost ALL hotels, so this is NOT a special complaint about this particular and very pleasant hotel!
Booked this place for 2 nights for a cycling holiday.. great facilities and the staff are super helpful... The food was fantastic and really good value... if you are in the area check it out.. you won't be disappointed!!!!
