Had a fantastic long week-end ski break with friends staying at the Royal Rochebrune, and thought it was a great little hotel in a super location.
The hotel is located about 2 minutes walk from the Rochebrune gondola and chair lifts, so it's very easy to get onto the mountain and to ski back to. It's located in a small complex with a couple of ski shops (one of which will hold your skis overnight for you) and a small supermarket.
Our room was clean and comfortable with an en-suite bath/shower, TV, minibar, a small seating area and a large sliding window. There was plenty of cupboard space and enough room to unpack and move around, and no shortage of hot water.
Breakfast was excellent. It was a buffet with a hot option (bacon and boiled eggs) as well as a good selection of pastries, cereal, yoghurts, fruit, juices, etc.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Check-in / check-out was easy, they were able to arrange ski passes and restaurant bookings at reception. They also very kindly gave our entire group a late check-out, which they didn't have to but which we really appreciated and made our last day much easier.
There is free wi-fi in the hotel. Wi-fi reception in our room wasn't great, but there were plenty of sockets for chargers, etc.
We really enjoyed Megeve - it's a beautiful (and fairly up-market little town) with great restaurants and a picturesque square. Skiing was superb and we had plenty of snow in mid-March. The quick transfer time from Geneva (1h15 ish) makes this resort/hotel a great option for a short ski break or long weekend. I would definitely go back again.
