Nothing could have prepared us for Christine,the owner,what an amazing lady,she really made us laugh and every evening was like going to the theatre.So, along with delicious meals on offer at night we really enjoyed our stay.The decor of the hotel is charming with many little special touches,but perhaps the one addition that we would have liked to have is somewhere to dry our boots at night, but I realise that would be quite expense to install.The location is, althoug not in a particularlt pretty area it's proximity to the bus station is wonderful and even the other lift station in the town is easily walkable, and Christine makes the hotel look so attractive from the outside and its also very quiet.
Our room was quite spacious,but to be honest,I would have liked a larger unit for our clothes, and the staff keep them exceptionally clean
I think that the only dissappointment for us English,was the breakfast,and whilst I don't expect to have a cooked breakfast ,the table was very small with not much choice.If I could make any suggestion,it would be to have a selection of different breads during the week and some kind of fruit sald or a wider choice of meats.
I don't like to criticise because we had such a lovely holiday and Christine was such a fantastic host,with nothing was too much trouble,even helping us out with trying to find all our lost propery!
Both Christine and her husband work incredibly hard and it shows in their hotel.We have stayed in many ski resorts throughout Europe,and Megeve and this hotel go down as one of our favourites.

La Grange d'Arly is a three star hotel with a big plus. Location is very convenient to everything, in particular the ski bus taking you wherever you decide to ski that day. It is owned and run by Christine and Jean Marie Allard in an exceptional friendly, warm and comfortable way. The hotel features a nice big fireplace for apre'ski, the rooms are very clean and relatively spacious and well laid out, we stayed in a "Triple room" with a loft where our daughter slept, kind of private. The staff in all areas are very professional at the same time friendly. One of the highlight is the dinner ( you do get new paper every breakfast ), Christine is not only a terrific chef but a great entertainer. If your next travel plans takes you to Megeve, this is the place to stay.

Stayed here for half-term with our two young children, 9 and 6 years, and were very pleased with what we found. The owners and their staff couldn't have done more to make, what is potentially one of the most stressful holidays, a very enjoyable break for all.

The hotel is pretty close to the central square (genuine 5 mins walk) and although next to the bus station is quiet, particularly the rooms at the rear. The place is traditional in style, very clean, warm and the rooms we had were spacious with good sized en-suite bathrooms (bath and shower over) and one had a balcony. The beds were firm and the linen was crisp and clean. Room service for afternoon tea or early evening beer/G&T was no problem.

The hotel has a bar area and restaurant and does good breakfasts, there is also on-site car parking if you drive. Free WiFi in rooms was also a bonus. Megeve sports centre nearly next door if you fancy a swim, sauna or ice skating.

If you want a reliable, very well run small hotel about an hour's drive from Geneva, that's in the centre (or very close to) of this pretty old town with some great skiing and good old fashioned French mountain restaurants, then you may struggle to find better.

This was our first time here (not Megeve) and we found the place on TA - so thanks to all those others for their reviews. We agree - a great find! Half tempting not to review as one of those places you don't want too many people to know about!

Christina & Jean offer their charming hospitality & culinay skills to skiers from all over the world. Leave you skis & boots in the basement and 90 steps to the bus depot for a 10 min. Ride to the slopes. Christina has a wonderful chef who prepares the best food you can eat - all with the local charm.

Having stayed here three years in a row, I would not even consider another.

Our stay at the Grange D'Arly in early February was really nice. This hotel has a wonderful French Savoie feel and this is enhanced by the owners' gracious friendliness and help with everything. The rooms and bathrooms are very lovely, comfortable and fastidiously kept every day by the really great staff. Everybody speaks English and goes out of their way to help. The owner, M. Allard gave excellent advice about where to ski, get the most economical petrol, where to rent skis, etc. We also enjoyed the dining room very much where Mme. Allard ran things like clockwork. The food was very good and everybody in our group enjoyed our evenings dining in the hotel. The commons area in front of the fireplace and the bar were especially pleasant and welcoming. We also liked the location of the hotel as it was very easy to walk across the street and quickly be in the center of the village with a short walk to the telecabine or it is very convenient if you have a car as we did, to quickly get to the roads leading out of the town for our touring excursions. We have stayed at other hotels in Megeve on previous visits, but now this hotel is our favorite choice.

we have just returned from our second visit to this lovely hotel in Megeve almost exactly a year after we visited for the first time.
we have had the most lovely time again and can't speak too highly of this cosy hotel with its friendly atmoshpere and extremely comfortable surroundings. Everything runs efficiently and smoothly and the attention to detail is excellent. This year we were determined to try some of the restaurants in the town for dinner but quite frankly there is little point. The quality of the food is really high and varied - fresh produce every day and cooked to an extemely good standard.
We have been to many places in the Alps over 25 years on skiing holidays, and this for us is as good as any of the hotels we have been to and Madame Allards own individual style just provides the final "icing on the cake".

The hotel is run by the owners Jean and Christine Allard. They are involved in every aspect of management and oversee every detail. Each room is unique but all are comfortable, attractive and clean. Most rooms have balconies which open to views of the surrounding mountains. The downstairs spaces are attractively decorated and invite groups to gather at the small bar or around the fireplace. The hotel's central location gives guests easy access to the center of Megeve, to the ski buses and to the Saturday market. Food in the hotel dining room is delicious, carried and artistically presented. While there are many excellent restaurants in Megeve, you will enjoy dining right at the hotel. Our hosts were charming and attentive. We truly felt like guests in their home.
