We stayed for a week in February 2014.
Very close to the Rochebrune cable car (very old very slow) and the Petit Rochebrun chair lift.
Excellent ski and boot hire and storage (if you hire the skis) Upstairs at Philippe Sport
Excellent evening meals and the restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful
Good location only 5 mins downhill to the town centre.
Superior rooms are large and spacious.
Our room was not ready when we arrived at 3pm, then given a basic room at 5pm, moved to the superior room that we had booked (good job I had the paperwork as the reception staff wanted to confirm with the tour operator before giving us our room) Superior room had not been serviced at all, finally in room at 6.30. Offered a bottle of wine as a 'Sorry' only to find it had been charged to my account at the end of my stay. So I had to ask for it to be removed !!!
Breakfast had no variety, boiled eggs, bacon and sausage on the hot counter every morning and the choice of bread was limited.
The rooms are only single glazed and after heavy snow fall all we could hear was the snow plough and its beeper as if we were standing next to it (it started at 5am and we were on the 3rd floor).
No tea or coffee making facilities in the room,(the management did supply it once I asked)
No dressing gowns, slippers etc.
No hooks in the room to hang any ski coats on.
The only mirrors in the room were inside the bathroom so difficult for one person to get ready if the other was in the shower.
Very, very pretty village.
Great selection of shops, and restaurants.
Après in the town is non existent and the night life starts around 11pm
A free horse ride to the ski lifts with your ski pass. Look out for the 12 people carriages with the ski emblem on the side.
To sum up.
A lovely ski holiday (lots of varied skiing) and Megeve is a great base if you like an authentic French holiday.
My problem is the hotel charges five star prices for a three star experience and therefore your expectations are very high but come crashing down very quickly.
Ok is all I can say.
On arrival the room was not ready so we went off to
