“Fantastic budget accommodation in an expensive resort”
Reviewed 15 December 2010

If you want to stay in the heart of Megeve but don't want to pay the usual high Megeve prices, you can't go wrong with the Rond Point.

I've stayed here on 3 occasions after getting to know Stanford Skiing during a few corporate trips to Megeve. Each visit has been all i could have hoped for.

Relative to the cost the rooms, food, staff and location are superb. For great value in a very expensive resort you can't go wrong.

Thanks to the great hotel and the management, we (Jurbena) were able to create ideal circonstances to prepare ourselves for a great Jazzevent in Megeve. We could move through the hotel freely, like it was our home.

There are basicly all ingredients present in the hotel for a good stay, but there are some improvements planned by the management. So it will be even better in the future.
When Jurbena Jazzband is back in Megeve (in a few years?) we hope we can stay here again.

Thanks,

On behalf of the Jurbena Jazzband.

The hotel is quite basic but very typical of a decent budget alpine resort. The room we had was small but was en suite and was clean. The atmosphere was extremely friendly and we met some lovely people. There were some "singles" in the hotel and it was ideal for people to mix. Dinner was decent and was "communal" where you mixed with the fellow guests and the honesty bar which was run pretty much not for profit made for a sociable few days. The wine at dinner was included but was average but you could buy a decent bottle of vacqueras for 8 euros which was amazing. The resort is lovely and the skiing first class and the hoptel staff accompany you in the mornings which gives you a good group of people to ski with.

Overall I think the headline "Basically Great" says it all.

We came to stay at the Rond Point run by Stanford Ski for Christmas as our daughter is doing a season in the area. It is very centrally located but could do with a little bit of an update. We could not fault the staff as from the moment we met them at Geneva airport to the moment we left the chalet, they were ALL amazing. James, the chalet manager, was fab and very approachable, he did everything we asked and more besides. The chalet girls, the chef (FAB BECKY!) and all the other staff made our stay absolutely fab! they often joined us for a drink after the meal. We had a wonderful Christmas meal too with crackers. Definately hire your skiis from Twinner as you can leave them after a long days skiing, Bar Centrale in Megeve is very friendly and does a lovely white wine!

There was no champagne on arrival (which I was looking forward to!) and the rooms are quite small. Nothing else bad to say as it was a lovely holiday with lovely staff!

I go to Megeve at least 5 or 6 times a year so I know the area well but this is the first time I have stayed in this hotel as my apartment was let out when I wanted to go. I chose it as Stanford Ski was recommended by a friend and they were happy to arrange a long weekend for me whereas many other hotels would only take 1 week bookings at that time. I was grabbing a few days Skiing and travelling alone so the group meals were an attraction and I have to say very enjoyable and of good quality. The staff were great, very friendly and willing to help. With the exception of the Chef I don't think any of them are profesional catering staff but none the worse for that, they are mostly youngsters who fancy a season in a Ski resort , they seem very happy in their work and often joined the guest for a drink in the evenings. The other guests were friendly all Brits when I was there, the informal and communal atmosphere of hotel reinforced the impression that I was back in my youth and staying in Youth Hostels in the ski areas of New Zealand. The hotel is basic 2 star , frankly pretty shabby and in need of remodelling. I understand that the owner of the hotel is not too happy with the way it has been used by the curent lessees who are also the owners of Stanford Ski . The rooms are adequate but thin walls so you have no problem hearing a conversation next door. As for Megeve it's a great place to Ski if it's a good year for snow, otherwise it is a little low and your better off going to one of the higher resorts particularly if you only have the chance to Ski for 1 week. The town is pretty and a very posy place, it's close to Geneva 55 mins by car and at weekends can get busy, many people come to the town simply to see and be seen, Fur Coats and sun glasses required ( still makes me smile to see people wearing sunglasses at night). It can seem expensive particulary with the weak pound this year but this is a town that aims itself at the wealthy and it' doesn't welcome the lads on tour set, which for me is a plus but I have seen one or two reviews complaining about " the stuck up French" in Megeve etc etc. I have had an apartment there for many years and it is simply not true they just find the kind of behavior that we see in many British towns at weekends abhorent. So to sum up: The hotel is a good location for a short break if you are a keen skier, the hotel is basic and shabby, think youth hostel chic, but you wont find a friendlier place to stay with good food and you will probably make many new friends and be on first name terms with the staff by the end of the second day and its for this reason I have given 4 stars.

Visiting the Rond Point for the 3rd time I was not disappointed. Ok the rooms could do with a bit of an update but you get exactly what it says on the tin in a 3 stars hotel, the staff are all really friendly, food great and location perfect just minutes from the lifts and it really has the feel of a chalet rather than a hotel with everyone eating together.
The guiding Stanford run Mon, Tues & Wednesday was great as it means you get ski with those of a similar ability, are shown the mountains and all 3 groups meet at the same place for lunch so you can meet back up with all your friends after.
