My wife and I stayed here for a recent ski break in Feb-14. Nice hotel well located on the main room into Samoens. I struggled to find the place using SatNav but if you’re driving from GVA, it is right on the main road, to your left as you enter the village of Samoens. We had a room on level...

We came in Feb 2014 for a week's skiing, and had a faultless stay at the Gai Soleil. It's a family-run hotel, and the Coffy family were exceptionally welcoming and helpful. When we left, after six nights, they felt like friends. The hotel is clean and compact, just what you expect for a three-star establishment in the lovely Alpine village...

Had a very relaxing week here. Room is basic but clean. Lovely breakfast, evening meals in restaurant were excellent. Availed of wellness facilities. Would have been nice to have bathrobe and extra towels provided - considering the cost of the room. I would definitely stay again. Warm, helpful and friendly staff in hotel and relaxed atmosphere in village makes Samoens...

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).
