“Avoid the restaurant. It's mediocre...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2013

I don't know the Hotel Le Fer à Cheval, but the restaurant is a disaster !
French arrogance, poor service, food not fresh. It means below average. Mediocre.
It was a very bad surprise, because this restaurant was presented as the place " you have to be" in Megève.

We were there on February for 7 days skiing a family with 2 children 8 and 10 years old.
We had a wonderful time.Fer a Cheval is one of the best mountain hotels I have ever been.Big comfortable rooms great lounge area an excellent restaurant.Hotel offers cars to take you to the ski area and bring you back any time of the day.A big inside pool a gym and a spa wait for you after a day on the slopes.Everyone was very helpful and polite excluded the owner that was unmannerly.A hotel like this of course was quite expensive but it was worth every euro.

I just passed a spontaneously wonderful weekend to resource in the mountains with friends and family at Le Fer a Cheval. The whole experience was positive in all categories. I look forward to going back in the winter.

Room Tip: The restaurant is amazing so definitely count on eating there as much as possible. Try the water bik...

My daughter and I were looking for a 4 or 5 stars Hotel in Megève, which could let us enjoy its SPA, heated pool, sauna and hammam area. Finally, we found "Le Fer à Cheval", a 4 stars Hotel, which was offering a 2 hours package inside their SPA area, during the quite period of the day, for 60 Euro per adult and 30 Euro per child.
The staff were very helpful, friendly and helpful, We were positively surprised by how clean and good looking was the entire SPA area. The heated pool and the jacuzzi were just perfect and we really could enjoy and relax during those 2 hours. Even if the price is quite high for such a short time, it fully worths it. Therefore, I will come back.

So, to resume what we lived :

Positive points :
--------------------

1) Very clean SPA.
2) Not too much people, as we came during the quite hours of the day (between 11:30 - 13:30).
3) Friendly and helpful staff.
4) Towels, bathrobe and special shoes are provided.
5) Tea offered upon arrival.

Points to be improved :
-----------------------------

1) To install a white screen for the video that are actually shown on the wall.
2) To allow kids to jump if there is nobody around that can be disturbed !

Well, that's it. I'll soon add some photos of the SPA area, so that you can have a clear view of how it looks like.

Enjoy like we did, I'll be back ;-)

Room Tip: Use the time between 11:00 until 16:00 to visit the SPA as much more quiet then !

Expensive (as everything in Megève), but excellent spa services. Greeting staff very friendly and treatment personel very professional and knowledgeable.

This is where to go for that special smile, not so easy to find in this part of the French Alps!

I stayed here as part of a top end group doing the Etape du Tour. Everything about this hotel was perfect. The package included breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was good, dinner excellent. My room was supremely elegant, very comfortable and with views to kill for. But what makes this place special is the wonderful level of service it provides. They have a great team. Just as an example; Breakfast for us on the day of the event was at 4 am. The hotel provided a full team and everyone of their team on duty was enthusiastic,cheerful and very helpful. That is just an example, though a good one, of the hotel's friendly helpful team

I have stayed at this hotel for over six times in summer and winter and I have never been disappointed. The breakfast is wonderful the staff are very kind and are very willing to tend to your services. The rooms are very cosy and beautifully decorated with alpine charm and the bathroom is beautiful. This has become my second home.
