We arrived quite late in the evening but were greeted warmly by the staff who were all very pleasant and helpful throughout our stay.
The rooms are spread over 3 floors, our room was on the lowest level, the same as the dining room and it seemed to get hotter the lower you went . The heat in the dining room hasn't been exaggerated in previous reviews it really is tropical and there didn't seem to be anyway to regulate the heat so be forewarned and take lightweight tops for the evenings!
Our room was also very hot but we were able to turn off the radiators and open the french door at night so it was fine.True the decor is tired but you get what you pay for and it was perfectly adequate and comfortable.
The ski lockers were just 3 tiny cupboards by the front door which always seemed to be swimming in water. The management have no problems with you wearing your ski boots to your room, we were also able to keep our skis outside of the French doors in our room so if anything it was an advantage as we were able to put our ski boots on in the comfort of our room.
The hotels facilities aren't large enough to accommodate all the residents in the bar/restaurant at one time. This resulted in us having to alternate between early and late sittings, the early sitting being at 6.30pm and 8.30pm for the late sitting, being part of a large group the size of the bar wasn't ideal, the food served in the dining room though was very good, more veg with the evening meals would of been appreciated but this is a minor moan. Breakfasts were very busy unless you're prepared to get there at 7.45am you're probably best waiting until 8.45am when things calm down a bit, just make sure you're there by 9am if you want the hot option as they stop taking orders for this at 9.
On Wednesday, the staffs evening off, we chose to make use of the free bus which runs approx every 20 mins until around midnight between Courchevel 1850 & 1550, timetable available from reception. We went to 1650, the bus stopped opposite Rockys Bar, had a lovely meal at La Table de Marie which is just up the hill to the right on the same side of the road as the bus stopped. They were extremely obliging, we shared a pizza ,salad and portion of chips, this was no problem for them, the portions were very large and extremely good value, they also serve Savoyard, fondues, crepes, mussels etc.
