Just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of town the Gai Soleil is a traditional family hotel perfectly positioned to enjoy the beauty of the Alps. Our room on the 3rd floor was a reasonable size and well appointed. It had a pair of bunk beds inside the small foyer area making it ideal for families, there was...

Furniture, fixtures and fittings are in need of updating, however this cannot detract from the unbelievably professional and helpful receptionist who spent a great deal of time looking up bus/train schedules for us on the internet. We couldn't get the WIFI to work, but nevertheless she went over and above. We didn't eat breakfast or dinner here so cannot comment...

We had a family room on the ground floor (room 1) for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel has excellent facilities and the staff cannot do enough for you. Our room had a set of bunk beds in a separate area to the main bedroom, so my little boy felt like he had his own room which...

We stayed for a long weekend. The food in the restaurant was exceptional, authentic french cuisine well cooked and almost entirely homemade - the sign of a skilled chef. Perfect for a long weekend - the room was fine, but the hospitality was the standout - would definitely return

We arrived late - a warm welcome for us. The location was excellent- a charming town, with lots to offer a family with small kids(6 yr old and an 8 month old baby). Breakfast was basic but fine, we had one dinner and it was excellent. Baby friendly, amazing fresh kids menu, and our meal was amazing. The town is...

We stayed for 5 nights in middle of march and it was nice but not so nice as we expected. I went with my brother to skiing and the hotel is in a good location. The rooms are reasonable, with a decent bathroom and a nice balcony. The breakfast is very basic but worst was the dinner. We went halfboard...

Perfect location for us, being in a quiet location 2 minutes walk into the village centre and only 10 steps across the road to the bus stop. The bus seemed to turn up whenever we needed it both out side the hotel and at the lift station, it seemed to be much more frequent than the timetable suggested. The staff...

We have just returned from a week's stay at the Gai Soleil. The hotel is extremely comfortable and the staff really helpful and friendly. The food in the restaurant was especially good and very traditional. We really enjoyed using the sauna and spa facilities in the evenings having endured sub-zero tempertures of minus 25 degrees on the slopes during the...

Stayed here for four days early september. We flew into geneva and drove to samoens. We absolutely loved the village, just what we were hoping to find in the alps. We booked into Gai Soleil on the basis of the price and location. I would say that on both counts it met our expectations. The location was superb, near the...
