On arrival the stair carpets not cleaned, living area not presented and cleaned anywhere near the advertised photos presenting the accommodation. Beds and bedding uncomfortable and basic. Bathroom standard of fittings poor mis matched grouting, toilets not clean and toilet seats not fitting properly. Bathrooms weren’t cleaned throughout stay, and no products provided for self cleaning. Tables covered in ghastly plastic table cloths, like children would expect, but not appropriate for adults. Wine provided with meals is the cheapest possible, and not appropriate with the food served. We requested ski passes, in advance, for collection early on the morning the family were due to arrive and stay, but these were not prepared and ready for collection as requested and agreed by Stanfords. We had organised ski coaching to start at 9:00, but as the passes were not printed and ready it cost us significant money on ski instruction, for 8 people. When the passes were finally issued further mistakes were made, including passes requested for 7 days were issued for 6 days. The standards of accommodation are incredibly basic and John Stamford was not prepared to address and account for the mistakes made with passes appropriately, when it was raised; merely explaining “you were not charged for the 7 day pass” as if that is acceptable. No apology or accountability, when more time as wasted returning to the box office while other guests ski. Standards of accommodation and service are poor. If you book you need to realise how basic your stay will be and that the Stanfords are not interested in offering any creature comforts or high standards of service.

Just returned from a 4 night stay. The Sylvania was quite a dissapointment. I''ve stopped at the Rond Point several times, also run by Stanford, and always thought it was great value for money. Having been assured that this property is "on par", I'd suggest otherwise. Food - average. Starters were poor whilst the mains were average. Dry meat one night, lack of vegetables another night,. Used toput additional veg on tables but not anymore. Credit on the deserts as they were delicious. Drink - the free table white was not the best. Not impressed when some of the mgmt got wine from behind the bar when entertaining guests! Not good enough. Accom - Having made an observation to the manager that we had a problem I was very surprised when he said it was the time of year. Could write more but sometimes you realise its time for a change!

We have just returned from a stay at this friendly chalet. We won the holiday and had never been to Megeve so it was great to experience something new. The Chalet was comfortable and cosy, we had a double room with en-suite, now we usually miss our shower when we go away but the one we had was great. Our boys had a spacious room next door with great views of the mountains from their balcony. Vlad was a fab chef and we still want to know how he cooked that lamb, it was divine. All the staff was welcoming and lovely and made our stay extra special as they did with all the guests. The communal lounge is a great place to get to know fellow guests and we got a good bunch, such a laugh. I would recommend the skiing to beginners and intermediates, they seemed to have a great set up for children who are just starting on their skiing journey. The town is very picturesque and great for window shopping, say no more! Thank you Stanford Skiing for the raffle prize 😀☃️🎿⛷

My first Chalet experience and neither my wife or I were disappointed, in fact, it was awesome. We had a fantastic 5 days in the Chalet and were lucky enough to be staying with the Stanford Skiing owners. This is a well run family business and the staff and family could not have been more helpful. The atmosphere was soooooo good and we had an absolute ball over Xmas. The chef was amazing and produced the most delicious food, as well as a huge spread on Xmas Day. The staff were all knowledgeable about the ski runs and were always happy to help. Thank you all so much for making our short Xmas break so very enjoyable.

Our group (17 in total) stayed at the Hotel Sylvana as part of a cycling trip from Geneva to the Mediterranean. All the staff were very helpful, looked after us and our bikes, they also helped our driver loading luggage. Highly recommended
