The dorm building is separate from the main building, but the main building houses the dorm bathrooms and showers (which were okay, but not great). The dorms have a common area with tables, which is nice - these rooms are heated, but the dorm rooms aren't. Staff were fine; there are a LOT of tourists / day hikers who come through here, so the restaurant is an actual restaurant. Meals were efficient, but not particularly appetizing (plain pasta, frozen vegetables, and sausages for dinner's main course). All in all, expensive but unimpressive.

Me and my friend stayed at Relais d‘arpette for a week while skiing in the area. The beautiful hotel ist located right at a slope with an amazing view on the mountains. We stayed in a cozy double room with private bathroom, which was very clean, had hot showers and an incredible view (see picture taken from our balcony). Breakfast and 3 course dinner were included in our stay and the food was simply outstanding! (See pictures) All meat dishes are locally sourced which you can definitely taste, wether it’s the ham for breakfast, Gulasch for lunch or deer sausage at dinner. The service was also really attentive and super friendly. I will definitely return in summer!

The view is fantastic but the food is average. Drinks are expensive and the showers are luke warm. Furthermore, if you are staying in the ‘lodge’ where the dortoir is, you have to walk outside to the main building for your shower which is in a mixed shower room. At dinner time, the mood could be described as chaotic. The staff seem stressed and it was difficult to order a drink. One staff member stood out as being extremely efficient - she was English speaking. The breakfast food is pretty poor but the waitress was very friendly and helpful. WiFi is only available in the main building, not in the dortoir.

A cross between a hotel and a refuge that is a little lacking if you expect a hotel but fantastic if you expect a refuge. If you’ve just tackled the Fenetre d’Arpette, as we had, you appreciate the large portions of good food and the cleanliness. It’s certainly best to go for the nice bedroom accommodation rather than the dortoirs.

Like so many, we stayed here to get a jump on the Fênetre the next day. It was great in terms of location - I recommend hanging out in Champex lac before settling into Relais because it’s just that bit too far away to go back into town for any supplies or food, etc. Dinner was great, fondue or deer stew which was hearty and filling. We also ate lunch at the restaurant which was pricey for spaghetti (€18) but was a large portion, I couldn’t finish it all! Compared to other Refugio’s on the TMB, this one did not really match us with other English speaking couples for dinner or for sleeping but it was fine and we all managed to communicate through dinner. We went to Check in early and were turned away, when we did check in they had already started allowing people to choose beds so unfortunately my 6ft 4 husband was hanging off the child Sized bunk beds (I’m 5ft 4 and was touching both ends of the bunk). The room only had a ceiling window with no air movement so it was hot.. Outside of the sleeping situation it was a lovely stay and great if you’re planning to do The Fênetre.
