Hotel Le Gai Soleil
Ranked #1 of 38 Hotels in Megeve
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 22, 2012

While we visit beautful Megeve every winter this is the first time in many years since we have stayed here. Still under the same ownership ( we miss you Beth!) the manager Cecily is maintaining the excellent standards and it continues to be a warm and welcoming savoyard inn. The meals are great ( breakfast deadly!) and the room we have now is the best yet (23). I think the traditiona family-run chalets are a dying breed. Le Gai Soleil is still flying the flag, one hopes for a long time to come.

Room Tip: Room 23 - quiet and has a bathtub!

Beth and the team go to extraordinary lengths to make everyone welcome and we have made great friends whilst staying there over 6 years. The rooms could do with an update but it will detract fro your enjoyment.

This is a lovely friednly hotel about 5 mins walk from the centre of town, and 7-10 mins from Le Chamois telecabine to the slopes. the bed is comfortable, the showers are excellent and warm, and the rooms are well equipped with everything you might need (hair dryer, shower caps, shower gels and shampoo etc).
the breakfast is excellent, with something for everyone, and the service is friendly and top notch.
Absolutely nothing to criticise. Excellent hotel.

Room Tip: our room, facing the mountain, was lovely and quiet. Don't know about the others.

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Le Gai Soleil for a three day break early in July, this is a very friendly hotel Chalet type hotel situated very close to the centre of Megeve whilst there we met a number of returning British tourist who had previously stayed at le Gai, we were there off season but took full advanage to walk high up in the Alps on both sides of the valley giving us clear views of Mont Blanc and the surrounding area which is breathtaking, which giving us a healthy appetite for the excellent dinner, which included local specialities. rooms are very comfortable ensuite some with views of the Alps Cecille the very friendly manager speaks perfect English and is very knowledgeable about Megeve ( a delightfull Alpine Village). The centrally situated Tourist Board have maps and sugestions for all sorts of walks in the alps. So would I go to Megeve and stay at Le Gai again - Most certainly

We had a fantastic time skiing in Megeve and staying at this hotel was the key to the success of our short break ski trip! Its in a great location, close to the resort centre and lifts but still nice and quiet. Only an hour from Geneva so you can be on the slopes in no time - the ski bus stops nearby or the hotel run a drop off service. The room was basic but clean and with everything we needed plus a nice view from the balcony ;) The staff were very helpful and we enjoyed a drink or 2 in the bar! The hotel also arranged our transfers and we had our lift passes delivered there so we could be on the slopes asap. The heated boot store was a bonus and the hearty breakfast set you up for the day. We will definately be back! Great hotel, in a lovely resort with the most beautifull (and quiet!!!) skiing.

A nice hotel, everything thought of and nothing too much trouble.
Friendly staff, excellent food and good value.
Convenient for the town centre but far enough away to be quiet.
Navette to and from the ski lifts. Car park and cars cleared of snow by 09.00!
Room rather compact, but had everything needed including the view and was only for sleeping anyway.
Oh, and staff understand English.
