A great place to stay. Comfortable, friendly and unpretentious. Great value for money, friendly and informative hosts. We will be coming back for sure to enjoy the mountains of Vaud and the Chablais. All facilities were great, cooking, showers etc.

My partner and I came for a week over Christmas and New Years and we can't stress enough how accommodating and helpful Merlin and Jemma, who run the hostel, were. We stayed 5 nights in a private room with an on-suite which had all we needed. After that due to a surprise flight cancellation, even tho they were full, Merlin...

The chalet is very chilled; Merlin and Gemma run a cool place and it was great to meet some new people and hear their stories. Would definitely recommend chalet Martin to anyone / stay again if...

While I stayed for only one night, my stay was very pleasant and comfortable. Staff were welcoming and friendly and the rooms were nice. Very good value for money, Guitars could do with some new strings though :)

I and three friends stayed at Chalet Martin for four nights during the summer, where we were welcomed by friendly hosts, Merlin and Gemma. We had an incredible experience at Chalet Martin, which was just bursting with character: featuring a lovely living room (where we were encouraged to use the guitars); access to a kitchen, showers, and laundry room (not...

Very welcoming place with lots of comfortable communal space. You can cook, play guitar, talk to people, sit by the open fire... It was also nice we didn't have to check out early as it was raining that day and we could spent the day in the house. We stayed in the rustic room which has a beautiful view over...
