Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 February 2014

This is the third time back and will go again. The staff are so friendly and welcoming it makes the visit a real pleasure. Restaurant also excellent and all good value. So all in all a pretty good spot for a few days break in the Alps

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have a great view

Can't wait to go back to the Gai soleil.......enough said :-)

Back in the day my daughter loved the mini cinema while I enjoyed the bar :-) it's also so nice to see so many returning guests.
I've never asked , but I would like some toast in the mornings but always forget because the croissant ,s are so fresh ..

Lovely hotel, staff were very helpful, clean throughout, very reasonably priced when compared to nearby hotels that are of similar standards, nicely located on the edge of Megeve town center giving you peaceful nights, the breakfast has a great selection to offer I strongly recommend including it in your package.

This is the very best 2 star hotel in the world.
The food is wonderful.
The staff excellent.
The location brilliant.
The hotel is small and charming.
It is run by a couple who will always make sure your stay is perfect.

This hotel is great, the room was very big and comfortable with a fantastic view. The staff are all super friendly, the chef even gave us a lift to the Rochebrune lift every morning after breakfast.

They offer a 4 course meal every night for 30 Euros and afternoon tea is served daily in the little cosy bar. Megeve is an expensive town and this hotel is extremely good value for money and offers all the modern comforts you would expect. The staff really care that you are enjoying your holiday and they make this place extra special.

We have been staying here for a number of years now and like a honey bee, we keep getting drawn back to the nectar of the flower. It has a rustic charm, it is not fussy, it is not pretentious; it does what it needs to do: it looks after it's guests, it gives personal attention and the food is excellent. All of this is done at a fair price.

I have stayed at Gai Soleil four times now and it has never failed to provide a warm friendly ambience (rather like staying with friends in a large chalet party) combined with superb value and great service. The excellent cuisine attracts both locals and a sophisticated international clientele. Within five minutes walk of the main lifts in the town centre and and closer still to Rochbrune, we were even chauffered further affield on occasion. I can thoroughly recommend a stay at le Gai Soleil.

Room Tip: There is a swimming pool but was not open in Winter but the hot tub in the fitness centre was superb...
