we was very lucky to manage to get a room at SB over the xmas week, have never been away for xmas before and we was slightly worried that the kids would miss out....... they had an absolute ball!! Let me start with the staff..... we was met at Geneva by two of the girls who work in the chalets, as anyone will know geneva mid morning is a bun fight but the girls were there holding up clipboards and got us on the coach(equipped with toilet) for the drive to Megeve.
On arrival the whole hotel came out and helped unload the coach of our baggage, we was quickly dispatched to rooms and left to unpack.
Rooms are adequate, the water is hot, the linen is clean, the beds are fine, for a skiing holiday what more do you want??
On to the catering, the chef Toby and his team are excellent, quiet how he managed to serve 50-60 fillet steaks medium at the same stage is beyond me on the 1st night
The children are fed at 5:45 and it was a pleasure to see decent food being served not the usual nugget + chips offering
Adults are fed at 7:45 and as i said it was always v good, house wine was surprisingly pleasent!
Upon arrival you are placed in a skiing group depending on ability, lessons were great and i must say i really learnt a lot, my son who is six was coming down red & blacks by the end of the week. At the end of the week you have a video meeting and look at what you did and didnt do correctly, kids have a awards ceremony
The bar area was a great social point with the drinks priced well especially for a town like Megeve.
So to sum up SB.... the staff are great.. food excellent.... rooms good.... lessons excellent......they just seem to really do it right if that makes sense...... i immediatley booked Febuary half term 2015 as soon as i got home......
