Our family stayed in the hotel during the Easter 2013 school holidays and we were amazed by how empty the hotel was. The price of the rooms was very expensive. It worked out at approximately £1000 per person per night half board. The hotel is located in a fantastic location and really is a luxury experience. The food for breakfast and dinner was outstanding and the desert buffet was excellent. We had connecting rooms on the 1st floor (too near the lifts) rooms 108/109. The rooms are very luxurious but small. For this price you would expect larger rooms. The bathrooms are high quality with Hermes toiletries and free sample cosmetics! In the wardrobe were quilted branded jackets (a gift) for the parents. Champagne awaited us in our room on the first night as did chocolates etc Every evening at turn down the house keeper would leave a little gift. The hotel has its standard dining room where the food is excellent. If you are on half board you are presented with a set menu with a single choice per course. You can choose from the a la carte menu but some dishes will come at a premium. The Michelin 2star restaurant is outstanding but the food is very rich and not great for kids. The cheese restaurant is very good and makes a change from the main dining room. The ski room is well equipped and the ski technicians are very helpful. Ladies have their boots put on and taken off! There are coffees, biscuits, water, tissues etc all on tap in the ski room for before or after your thrills on the piste. The concierge desk was very helpful with lunch time restaurant bookings etc and the spa was very nice. One word of warning. The massage I had was 200 euros and was terrible. The person giving it was disinterested and the outcome was very poor. That said the hotel overall was excellent. Very, very expensive bit excellent. What do you expect in a 5* hotel in Courchevel! and I was only handed a Russian menu by mistake one during our stay!
Restaurants on the slopes are great with our favourites being: Le Cap Horn, Bel Air and Chalet des Pierres.
