“An excellent boutique hotel with fabulous food and exceptional service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2011

We have just returned from a fabulous stay at the Flocons de Sel for a weekends skiing. Our room was spacious, modern and stylish, with vaulted ceiling, balcony, fireplace and superb bathroom with shower and a bath big enough for 2 with a window next to the bath giving a lovely view over the valley. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room so peaceful we slept well and felt very well rested when we left. The service was exceptional - from the moment we booked to our departure, nothing was too much trouble. We had wondered if the position a little out of town would make it difficult for skiing and going into town, but the shuttle service provided was amazingly responsive and took us where we needed to go whenever we wanted and picked us up again to bring us back to the hotel. The food was some of the best we have ever eaten, delicious breakfasts we could have in our room or in the salon, and an exquisite dinner in the hotel restaurant. Every evening the room turn down service left us with fresh fruit and some delicious macaroons. We also enjoyed a lovely meal with friends in the hotel's Flocon Village bistro in the centre of Megeve where the food was superb and very good value (24 euros 2 courses, 29 euros for 3 courses). As we left the hotel, we were handed a bag with some of the homemade preserves we had enjoyed at breakfast - a lovely touch. Overall an unforgettable experience.

"Flocons de Sel" tries to be top-notch but just doesn't make it. Although a lovely place, service varies from very good to very bad, e.g. there are many charming staff members, however our check-in was very weird & uninformative thus off-putting; spa appointment was seriously messed up since the masseuse (who ultimately proved to be very talented) arrived 45 minutes late. I had wanted to make the most of the lovely hotel/spa facilities yet because of these service glitches, could not.

Had this been an ordinary, inexpensive hotel, it wouldn't matter. However Flocons de Sel clearly aims to be a cut above (and prices are steep!), but in our experience it did not come up to standard. It simply did not deliver an all-around great experience for its great-big prices.

We were looking for a hotel to celebrate a family event and chose this special place after reading the good reviews in this website. We were 4 couples (no kids).
Each room has different decoration but all of them are just wonderfull and have everything to make the stay as comfortable as possible.
The food in the local restaurant (for dinner) is unique and excellent and also breakfast is very good.
The staff is well trained , english speakers, will help in every situation and will do everything to make your stay unforgetable.

We had a fantastic experience at both the restaurant and the hotel.

First of all, the food was amazing, really innovative, delicious & tasty.
The service was excellent, the best we ever got in France ! They really try their best to make you feel good, without being poshy. Our 2 children were treated like kings and they took them to the kitchen to choose their desserts with the Chef !
The Chef is a very friendly and accessible person who loves to see his customers happy. He even came to say goodbye when we left.

As for the room, it was superb too ! The bed was uber-confortable and the bathroom so pleasant.
We had a nice relaxing view over the valley with some cows in the background, it was really beautiful.

Overall, the service was exceptionnal. We are very impressed and we hope to be back next year !!!

I only spent a night here but was really impressed. The rooms are well planned out and comfortable, the service faultless and the food compares to the best I've eaten anywhere. Very quiet (OK, the cow bells did get a bit annoying and next time I would take earplugs).

Flocons de Sel is the perfect example of how a luxury boutique hotel should operate. Service was without fault. Generous modern rooms, well designed and immaculately clean. Emmanuel Renault has to be one of the best Chefs in the world and his wife runs the restaurant with a friendly and elegant style, without being imposing. The food and wine are brilliant. Talented hardworking staff pamper your every requirement. Underground carparking and internet are thrown in. Quiet remote location, a bit out of the way; balanced by peace and no local traffic. The hotel provides a shuttle to/from the skiing and town. Great skiiing and Megeve is a lovely town. If the prices don't scare you, visit this hotel asap.
