I booked a last minute night in le Gai Soleil as part of a cycling trip around Megeve, I had not researched it and knew nothing about the place. So upon arrival I was very pleasantly surprised to be staying in such a hotel, the building itself is beautiful, the entrance lobby, reception, bar, restaurant in classic rustic chalet type... More

As part of a recent cycling trip, we stayed as a large group at the Gai Soleil. The hotel staff are hugely hospitable, the place is clean and characterful and the food is outstanding. I shared a twin room overlooking the front of the hotel and swimming pool area - it was quiet, traditionally decorated and airy. There was an... More

This is now my second visit and I would not hesitate to go back. We went for Christmas which can be so hit or miss however they all made us feel so welcome and they really went above and beyond the call of duty. It is run by a charming English couple. I have heart problems and I felt it... More

The hotel has a good location about 3 minutes walk from the town centre and easy walk to Chamois and Rochebrune lifts, former is easier as route is less uphill. Small but comfortable rooms with balconies and amusingly narrow bathrooms. Most of the hotel looks very nice but there's a few signs (stairs and corridor ceilings) of some poor refit... More

We love this special hotel and have been staying here for a number of years now. It was a real find for us and we have never been anything other than totally satisfied with everything from the moment we arrive to the walk through the door on our way home! it is quaint, typically French but with the added dimension...

Great value. A little too far to walk in ski boots to the lift . We drove up the hill to the nearby lift (less than 5 minutes) and there is a nice parking garage there so it wasn't a problem. May be hard to find a parking place at the in-town lifts. Nice small room, maybe too small for... More

We enjoyed our stay at Le Gai Soleil in Megeve... Staf was very accomodating. rooms were clean, good beds, with bath and shower. Would return to this hotel if we ski in Megeve again. Megeve is a neat mountain town. Plenty of little shops, liquor stores, good ski rentals.

This is the third time back and will go again. The staff are so friendly and welcoming it makes the visit a real pleasure. Restaurant also excellent and all good value. So all in all a pretty good spot for a few days break in the Alps

Lovely hotel, staff were very helpful, clean throughout, very reasonably priced when compared to nearby hotels that are of similar standards, nicely located on the edge of Megeve town center giving you peaceful nights, the breakfast has a great selection to offer I strongly recommend including it in your package.
