Reviewed August 31, 2012

The idea is good - right in the middle of town - and a more stylish option (compared to all the dull traditional hotels). The Jean Cocteau theme, whilst not wildly original, could be a good style unifier. HOWEVER, the communal parts are quite tired, and the room I had was bordering on tatty (especially the bathroom) and small in "contemporary hotel"

Most unforgivingly, I found the breakfast to be not very bountiful, and quite thrown together - I am not a fan of powdered eggs!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room on the back because I understand the front can be noisy.

It is very well located in the center of town. It has the look of a true mountain hotel, a lot of wood, dark and cozy. Our room had a nice deck at the back. Beds are really comfortable. The service is very professional. Very cozy and very comfortable

The hotel is cozy and the service very professional. The rooms are dark -- good luck applying make-up in the bathrooms. Our room had truly bizarre pink and brown striped flock wallpaper, but it was large and clean. The breakfast buffet had an amazing selection of jams and honey. The location is in the heart of the town.

We stayed for a long weekend and although Megeve is not a resort I would hurry back to, this little hotel was a great find. Hands down - the best breakfast I have ever had in a hotel anywhere. Dinner was also delicious - after failing to get a reservation at the restaurants we wanted to go to (be warned eating out requires serious organisation and very advanced booking ) we ate in one night and had a great evening.

The staff literally could not have been more helpful and friendly - and barely batted an eyelid when we asked to move after a night below noisy neighbours.

The club room(s) are small but functional - and perfectly clean, however the rooms are long overdue a refurbishment - with tired faded wall paper in places and bathroom fixtures and fittings that really belong in the 80's.

Its not the end of the earth - but with such great staff and food - and the best location in town - it would just be a whole lot better with a little facelift.

I did dwell on whether to give this hotel 5* or not because a Four Seasons it is not, but in the end I couldn't resist because the general ambience and service is brilliant. The location is amazing, right in the centre of Megeve. It is not more that a minutes walk to the main ski lift. There is a handy boot room downstairs with lockers and direct access out to the street that makes life very easy. The staff were all amazingly pleasant and went out of their way to help us arrange everything we needed. Now the rooms are on the small side and I would say need a bit of updating, but they are extremely comfortable, warm and have everything you need for a ski holiday. The swimming pool is small, but this is in the centre of Megeve. It is a great place to relax after a day on the slopes and the jacuzzi and sauna are also very welcome. Breakfast can be taken in your room or in the breakfast room and is a very comprehensive spread including beautiful carved hams. The Enfants Terribles restaurant is also very good and I would recommend it. The ski-ing was great this year. Megeve is a real find for us and we will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the town square as it will be quieter.

From the moment of arriving at the airport (the hotel had arranged our transfer) we found all the staff to be very professional, extremely helpful and most important very pleasant. At first the bedrooms seemed a little dark but soon realised that this only added to the warmth and cosiness of the room. Room service was excellent and the housekeeping I would give 6 stars. We had some of the best seafood in the restaurant and ate there on numurous occasions. I think I can safely say we had a wonderful time and would certainly return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Romms overlooking the mountains are very quiet.
