I came upon this hotel when trying to book a ski trip to Megeve and was so impressed with the reviews I booked it for myself and my husband and our two friends. What a lucky find this was. We expected the food to be good from the reviews but it really was first class. The scrambled eggs in the morning are phenomenal and the evening menu is exceptional. The selection of deserts is out of this world as is the extremely tempting cheese board and the overall quality of the food combined with the great service is fabulous. The wine list was also extensive and not prohibitively expensive.
The rooms were clean, comfortable and had everything you could want. We had no issues with the shower (which was attached to the wall over the bath) and there was a shower screen which was fine. The balcony and view of Mont Blanc were fabulous.
I have only marked the sleep quality as average but this relfects the fact that I have a back issue and struggle with harder beds. The hotel was peaceful and the beds would be fine for most normal people but the only beds in hotels I have ever found comfortable are in Sofitel hotels.
The staff really make this hotel. From the owner who is constantly supervising to make sure her guests are happy to David (the mad bar man who also doubles up in the dining room and wielding the vacuum cleaner when he is not reading Rebecca in english by Daphne Du Maurier), to the fabulous waiters and waitresses, the lovely man on reception and the owners two gorgeous labradors. Nothing is too much trouble. On the last day we had an evening flight back and the boys wanted to get their last days skiing in. The staff fussed around them making sure they had plenty of towels and access to the showers in the spa when they returned.
It does help if you have a smattering of basic french as this is a very french resort and hotel. We were the only english staying there but this definitely added to the charm of this magical hotel.
It would not suit those looking for a lively, party type place but really does offer peace, tranquility, amazing service and food and exceptional views.
