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.

This is the very best 2 star hotel in the world. The food is wonderful. The staff excellent. The location brilliant. The hotel is small and charming. It is run by a couple who will always make sure your stay is perfect. Daniel Janner

This hotel is great, the room was very big and comfortable with a fantastic view. The staff are all super friendly, the chef even gave us a lift to the Rochebrune lift every morning after breakfast. They offer a 4 course meal every night for 30 Euros and afternoon tea is served daily in the little cosy bar. Megeve is... More

We have been staying here for a number of years now and like a honey bee, we keep getting drawn back to the nectar of the flower. It has a rustic charm, it is not fussy, it is not pretentious; it does what it needs to do: it looks after it's guests, it gives personal attention and the food is... More
