“so disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2011

This hotel boasts over its 4 stars. I guess the inspectors' pen slipped when they wanted to check "2"...
Stayed there for a WE two weeks ago. Decoration in the lobby and public areas can be discussed but it is kind of homey and comfortable (assuming you like this faux quaint French Style). In opposite, rooms do not meet any standard that could have been expected. The two I had booked were cupboard size, although priced both EUR 300 per night (not including breakfast). They are cheaply decorated, with what looks like second hand basic furniture. At last, one of them had a tiny balcony to get some fresh air...The other one lacked this nicety and was street level, directly on the sidewalk. Very pleasant....
Breakfast is served in a gloomy overheated basement room, which is totally depressing considering you might expect to enjoy some scenery.
Finally, I had kept one of the two rooms (and, of course paid for that, even if the hotel was clearly not fully booked when we left) to fit our late evening departure. Needless to say they left us with the worst (if this is applicable) of the two AND did not even bother to send over housekeeping, which is totally unacceptable. So you pay full rate to be able to take a shower before leaving and you do not even have a clean towel. Of course, I was fuming and they brought some but we still had unmade beds, etc...

Conclusion: lowest value for money I have had in a long time, totally overpriced. However, the staff, on average, is nice. Partly makes up for management....

Dear Sir,
I remember your stay and I do apologize for the mistake regarding your late check-out.
The chambermaid should have clean your room and bathroom before your late departure, and I can only notice the lack of instruction between the reception and the housekeeper about that. Late check-out is very unusual for us, so please be assured this will help us to improve the quality of our service.
Regarding our furniture, the owners have decorated the rooms, the lounges, the restaurants in accordance with the local-style, which is characteristic and, of course, which cannot suit to everyone. Sorry it doesn't please you.
Best regards.
L. GALLI,
General Manager

The rooms, food, location and service in this hotel are all either very good or excellent.

I think maybe some other hotel owners in the area have been adding malicious reviews as some of those below are a travesty.

The place is great, maybe not great value, but on the 5 times I stayed I wasn't paying the bill so that didn't bother me.

I've stayed in a variety of rooms, some great others fantastic. Both restaurants are superb, though bar service in the lounge / reception area leaves a little to be desired, and being a French speaker certainly helps, as it does in the majority of Megeve (It's not Val Thorens / aka Blackpool on the slopes).

We were looked after in the resort by Stanford skiing, who provided all the assistance and guiding we needed.

We stayed there the week-end of 8-9 April 2006 because most other hotels were closed (end of the winter season).

The only good thing about chalet St Georges is the location: near the center of the village and the ski lifts.

Otherwise, what a disaster. The style is faux chalet with horrible paintings. The rooms are ridiculously small and, as already pointed out by a previous reviewer, smelly. The staff is overall friendly with the exception of the manager whom we found to be rude beyond belief (not expected in a supposedly 4 stars hotel at 300+ euros a night).

There are so many other lovely hotels in Megève (all the ones ranked higher on Tripadvisor) so I would strongly suggest you avoid Chalet St Georges unless you do not have the choice.

One last thing: this hotel is outrageously expensive for the quality of the rooms and service. For the same price you can stay at the Fer à Cheval or at the Grange d'Arly for even less - don't hesitate a second!

I cannot believe some of these reviews. It's as though we are talking about different hotels. We have been staying at Chalet St Georges every year, for several years, in a variety of different rooms. We love the hotel, the rooms are excellent; all rooms are different, some larger than others. There is a large suite on the top floor, which easily accomodates two adults and three children. We have always found the staff very friendly; the reception as well as the restaurant staff. The location cannot be beat; just minutes from the ski lift, in the center of town. There are two restaurants, both very good.

What's all the fuss about, take a chill pill!
We've stayed in this hotel 3 times and each time it has been a great experience.
This hotel is relaxed, helpful staff, comfotable Alpine theme rooms and great food in the both restaurants.

The hotel is in a great location, about 100m from the ski lifts.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We had a pretty positive experience. The fact that we speak French may have made a difference. However, one must say that the rooms are very small and slightly claustrophobic.
