“Fabulous friendly hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We spent a week at Le Regina over New Year (2013-14) and it was superb. The situation of the hotel right in the heart of the village was perfect for access to the skiing by day (we had a car but the shuttle bus would have been fine) and the shops and restaurants in the evening. Our hosts were always on hand for anything we needed and were so friendly and relaxed it really was a home from home. The rooms were were comfortable and the lovely bar area and simple but delicious evening meals were most appreciated. I would have liked some protein with my carb-loaded breakfast perhaps but that's the only tiny thing I can think of that wasn't perfect!

The owners Gavin and Kirsten are very friendly couple. We felt ourself in a family rather than the neutral handling by the large hotel chaines.
The room is simple but the bed is very comfortable (unfortunately we cought a virus infection so we could "enjoy" the bed for two days). The bath is well renovated.
The breakfast is quite enough for recharging our batteries.
The location is excellent, the ski bus station is very close.
The only problem with Saint Gervais les Bains is that the shuttle buses from Geneca airport (for example Chamexpress) stop at Le Fayet, and it is difficult to get a taxi there. Going back it was easy to get a taxi in Saint Gervais les Bains but this service is unaccaptable expensive (EUR 25 for 5 km compared with shuttle EUR 35 for 90 km; try to get a shuttle bus which drops you at Le Regina).
But of course Le Regina owners do not have any connection with this fact.
We were on ski holiday, and the hotel has storage place for the skis and boots (heated) very close to the front door.
We thank you very much the kindness of our hosts and definatley we would like to return this place (hopefully with more luck both in terms of health and snow).
One more thing: They offer Leffe draft beer and very delicious pies, so if somebody wants to have a nice conversation in the hotel in the evening it is easy to do so (specially taking into account the very small restaurants in the village each needs table reservation in advance).

We stayed 7 nights at the Hotel Le Regina and enjoyed it immensely. We travelled with our two kids and they slept in Chamber 1 while we slept in the connecting room, Chamber 2. The rooms were clean and comfortable with their own bathroom and plenty of cupboard space. The French style breakfast was a delight every morning with coffee and juice.
It was great to chat to the owners, Kirsten and Gavin, on our arrival. Their knowledge of the St Gervais area is quite extensive and gave us plenty of tips on where to go sightseeing. The restaurants and shops are 2 minute walk from the hotel, so it’s quite central to all the action in town.

Room Tip: If you have a little boy who loves fire engines try to get chamber 1+2, all day entertainment.

Booked direct with owners by email - really quick and efficient responses (I wasn't 100% sure of arrival date - they were very flexible, 'not a problem' types). My room was really nicely furnished, very clean and a decent size (especially for the area) - also had nice outlook over the hotel courtyard. Overall, very good value for money and the area is just stunning. Despite being end of summer season, weather also fab, so a real bonus!

Room Tip: The road outside is pretty quiet so no real noise issues with rooms at front. I had corner room so...

Stayed at the hotel Le Regina for two nights and had a really comfortable stay. St Gervais is a very pretty town, the hotel is in an great location (easy walk to everything) and parking outside was no problem. A warm welcome on arrival with tea and freshly baked muffins! Ate well at the hotel and had a very clean and comfortable room with comfy bed. The Australian/English(I think?) owners were extremely friendly and welcoming and full of useful information about the local area - would very happily stay again.

Room Tip: My room at the front had a nice view of the Main street - not noisy, but stuff to looks at/watch

I recently stayed with my husband at the Hotel Le Regina, a clean, friendly, comfortable hotel in the lovely Alpine Village of Saint Gervais Les Bains between Chamonix and Megeve. Our room had a lovely view of the mountains and a big bath, which was perfect after a long walk. Breakfast was ample with normal French fair and lovely coffee. Restaurants in town are just an easy 250 yards walk away. Kirsten, Gavin, Chris and Will were most accommodating and nothing was too much trouble.

Room Tip: Chambre 4 was quiet and comfortable

I stayed with my husband and 2 kids and loved every minute. The owners are wonderful and very helpful. They tried to please you in every way. Nothing was too hard for them unlike some of other french hotels we have been to. They made us feel at home in every way. The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable so that we didnt want to get up. The location of the hotel was very good too. It was walking distance to the restaurants and the shops. I loved being there and would definitely go back there again.
