of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
We book Hotel L’Arboisie , Megeve, France from March 14 to 18 2017. We were very disappointed with this hotel for a number of reasons. 1. The room was extremely small so much so that two adults could not move around the room at the same time. For a four star hotel there was nowhere to sit and e.g. watch TV in the room. 2. The view from the bedroom was onto a large gas cylinder which sat at the bottom of a steep hill. As a result there was an unpleasant view out of the room. 3. We asked at Reception if we could move to a better room, they said they would look into it and get back to us they never did. Potential guests should be warned about the room types in this hotel because they are certainly worth what we were charged. Our visit was well below what you would expect from a hotel which advertises itself as a Four Star hotel.
"Wonderful hotel with an AMAZING views over the village of Megeve and the Alps!"
We just got back from a wonderful week at l'Arboisie. The hotel is located just above the village, with amazing views of the valley and the mountains. Upon our arrival we were informed that we had been upgraded to a three bedroom suite (we booked a one bedroom suite for one adult and two teens). Needless to say, my girls were ecstatic, as they each got a bedroom. The kitchen was well stocked with a huge fridge, microwave, electric kettle, dishwasher, and all the pots and pans, and utensils you would have needed, had you stayed in and cooked. Each room, including the den/kitchen area had a T.V., however, every channel was in French. The bathroom was small, but clean and modern. Our balcony was what really made our room though - the view was absolutely stunning! During the day, gorgeous mountain views, and at night, the lights from the village and all the mountain top chalets. Nice bar area with cozy chairs and couches in modern, chic mountain style. Fabulous restaurant, which I have rated separately. In addition, there is a tiny gym - yes, very small - but modern and clean. I used the treadmill a couple of times and I never had to wait my turn (I guess most people at a ski resort don't use the gym!). There is an indoor pool as well, but we didn't even take a look at it, as we were not interested in swimming. The hotel is in walking distance from the village, but the walk is steep and it gets pretty hard to walk UP from the village after a day of skiing, or after a nice dinner with wine! No problem though, as the hotel provides a free shuttle service to a from the hotel to the village every 20 minutes. This was very convenient when we were tired. Everyone, including the shuttle bus drivers, the receptionists, the bar tender, the cleaning lady, and the restaurant staff were extremely friendly and service minded. We could not have had a better experience at this gem in the Alps and we hope to go back.
"No, not at this rate"
When you are staying in an allegedly Suite at this rate you expect to have at least a mirror, quality furnitures, a modern bathroom and a little bit of style. This hotel has none of this characteristics... Hopefully the bar, the pool and the breakfast met my expectations.. I was told that they are about to modernize the rooms this spring. This is a relevant idea ..
"Great family hotel"
I have been staying at l'Arboisie for ski holidays with my son for the last 4 years and we thoroughly enjoyed it. With the new owners, the hotel is even improving and it shows in the quality of the food. Staff are very friendly and efficient, and always smiling (even when assaulted by large families in peak times). Great place to go with kids.
"Nice hotel but avoid holiday season"
Very nice hotel with big rooms, though they could need a little refreshment already. Service is very friendly but completely overloaded and lost, especially for breakfast. It unfortunately takes ages until the tables get cleaned etc. The pool area is a nice to have and you have everything. As said avoid the holiday season to enjoy the spa or just accept that there are plenty of kids jumping and shouting around.
