We have just spent a few days in the hotel. It was excellent. It is family run,and nothing was to much trouble, for the Coffy family. The food was terrific, and it was extremely well run. As it was very hot in Samoens, the pool was a bonus. We hope to return soon and wish the Coffey family and staff... More

My wife and I stayed here for a recent ski break in Feb-14. Nice hotel well located on the main room into Samoens. I struggled to find the place using SatNav but if you’re driving from GVA, it is right on the main road, to your left as you enter the village of Samoens. We had a room on level... More

We came in Feb 2014 for a week's skiing, and had a faultless stay at the Gai Soleil. It's a family-run hotel, and the Coffy family were exceptionally welcoming and helpful. When we left, after six nights, they felt like friends. The hotel is clean and compact, just what you expect for a three-star establishment in the lovely Alpine village... More

Had a very relaxing week here. Room is basic but clean. Lovely breakfast, evening meals in restaurant were excellent. Availed of wellness facilities. Would have been nice to have bathrobe and extra towels provided - considering the cost of the room. I would definitely stay again. Warm, helpful and friendly staff in hotel and relaxed atmosphere in village makes Samoens... More

Dear Madam, Sir, I've made a special price for you, you pay 159€ per night with breakfast included in place of 184€. I select a family room for you with a garden view. This room have a kitchenette on option. The kitchennette was closed when you arrive but you opened by forcing the door in spite of the poster indicating... More

Our room on the 3rd floor was a reasonable size and well appointed. It had a pair of bunk beds inside the small foyer area making it ideal for families, there was... More

Furniture, fixtures and fittings are in need of updating, however this cannot detract from the unbelievably professional and helpful receptionist who spent a great deal of time looking up bus/train schedules for us on the internet. We couldn't get the WIFI to work, but nevertheless she went over and above. We didn't eat breakfast or dinner here so cannot comment... More

We had a family room on the ground floor (room 1) for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel has excellent facilities and the staff cannot do enough for you.

We stayed for a long weekend. The food in the restaurant was exceptional, authentic french cuisine well cooked and almost entirely homemade - the sign of a skilled chef. Perfect for a long weekend - the room was fine, but the hospitality was the standout - would definitely return
