Returned to the hotel this year after sadly having to miss a year due to the hotel being full last year-our fault for leaving it too late to book. Hardly surprising it gets booked up early as it continues to be a fantastic place to stay.
I reviewed it at the beginning of March 2012 and my review from then still stands. However, the hotel is friendlier than ever with all members of staff doing everything possible to assist. During breakfast one day I noticed a family of 6 arriving after the breakfast cut off time asking for a complicated order. At no stage were the staff unwilling to help and in fact went out of their way to help.
The hotel is immacutely clean, the rooms comfortable, and the bar/sitting area with traditional log fire is very welcoming. Dinner, as described in my last review, is delightfully organised and run by Christine, the owner, with fine traditional food and she is more than happy to be flexible with the menu quite apart from being her usual charming self. Her ability to switch between languages and look after all her guests is legendary and great fun.
As I have said before the location of the hotel is perfect being a short walk to the centre of the charming Megeve where there are plenty of recommendations for ski hire at the bottom of the main telecabin up to the slopes. Pelloux Sports run by Nicolas, recommended by the hotel, had no problem changing skis or boots after a day when they didn't suit me and could not have had more helpful staff. Well worth using them.
All in all another great ski holiday made by the helpfulness of the hotel and all their staff. Christine and Jean Marie Allard could not have done more.
