“Excellent position”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

This chalet hotel is very well positioned within a very short walk to the ski lifts. The staff are all English and are extremely friendly and helpful. The food is reasonable to good and meal includes wine, which makes the overall package very competitive for 1850. Some English channels on the tv and free Internet are also appreciated.
On the down side the rooms are basic and quite worn ( but clean) the ski lockers are woefully inadequate and have lead to people taking the wrong skis.
In summary if you want to be on the slopes all day and have a basic hotel at a reasonable price in 1850 this is a very good choice.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the bar (201) may be quieter.

The rooms are adequate though small. The bar is too small and a little claustrophobic without any windows. The breakfasts provided are normal for hotels like this, but the cakes, biscuits and soup provided at 4.00pm are all home made and very nice. The evening meals we were served were of good quality with one exception, and the service was excellent. The location of the hotel is superb, and this is one of the best value for money hotels I have used. If budget is an issue book this hotel otherwise better accommodation exists locally but at inflated prices

I am astonished at the high ratings given for this hotel. Situated near to ski lifts and on main road the hotel has a great location. However as all ratings say - the hotel is tired, the facilities are poor, the bar and dining room too small. Space for skis was totally inadequate. Cleaning standards were dubious at best and two members of our party suffered tummy upsets. True the staff were pleasant but better training could make a big difference to the holiday experience. It is a great shame for such a great location to be wasted.

Room Tip: Some rooms have baths & some showers - state preference on your booking. Ensure towel rail works...

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.

You don't often get the opportunity to rub shoulders with oligarchs for the cost of this hotel. yes, it is a bit tired and in need of decoration, but the location and service make it a holiday to remember.
We were a party of 11 on an early ski trip. the first requirement was close to lifts. Short of camping in the main lift building you couldn't get any closer. We didn't need the fleet of BMW's and black people carriers from the 5 star hotels as it is only 50m from the end of the piste.
It is difficult to describe how friendly and helpful the staff were. From providing a van to carry luggage from the coach drop-off point to always being there to fill wine glasses they made the holiday. Even the reps, usually known for wanting to get out on the snow as soon as possible, were there every morning and offered ski hosting appropriate to our group.

The food was very good for the price. It was certainly varied and well cooked, although the portions might be a bit small for larger appetites. There was a cooked option every morning and a choice of 3 dishes each evening. Hot drinks were available all day long and cakes and homemade biscuits were brought in every afternoon.

Courcheval 1850 is a very expensive resort. It is obvious from the fashion shops and jewellers that line the streets. This is reflected in the prices of the restaurants on the slopes. Expect to pay 6 euros for a coffee around 1850. However, travel further afield and prices reduce dramatically with La Tania giving great value at lunchtime.

As for the skiing - after all the main reason - there are slopes to suit everyone. The Courcheval villages are all different and it is possible to ski challenging reds and straightforward blues nearly everywhere. For variety visit the other 3 Valley resorts. Meribel was quite steep and icy, especially lower down, while St Martin/Les Menuires had lovely long sundrenched slopes.

it was the sort of holiday we will remember for a long time. Thank you Inghams!

Room Tip: It's unlikely you will get a choice. All the rooms are single aspect onto a square with the buse...

A group of 30 of us have just come back from this hotel. it was a fantastic holiday. the location is fantastic. ski lifts just a toddle away from the front door. yes the chalet is tired and dated but this is our 5th time in france and they are always the same so we know what to expect. the chalet was warm and comfortable. the bedrooms were all different layouts but ours was big and warm with plenty of space and storage etc. the bathroom is particularly old fashioned in room 309 where we atyed but it did the job. beds were really comfy and the water was always hot and plentiful. the only problem was that we couldnt open the balcony door to get out for some fresh air as the unit with the tv and fridge was in the way and too old and wobbly to move !! the chalet living areas and dining areas are all downstairs from the reception. they were cosy but warning- the dining room was so so hot at night, that we had to strip off to vest tops to enjoy dinner. no major issue, just take shorts and flip flops to wear to breakfast and dinner. seriously !! the bar was cosy but a little small for our party all congregate together, so thats the only reason we wont be going back. the food was superb, best ever. chalet mamager sophie was approachable and down to earth. all the staff were good. the chef had gone 'walk about' but all i can say is, whoever stood in for him did a fantastic job.
well done and thanks for another fab skiing holiday . x

Nestled between Chanel and Lacroix Hotel Anemones has to be one of the best locations I have ever stayed. The biggest shame is that the Hotel really does need re decorating. Having said that you probably would pay twice or possibly three times more to stay there. You really are on the doorstep of millionaires paradise. Blacked out cars pulled up outside the Hotel constantly with bodyguards patrolling the outside of shops. Abramovich visited Le Tremplain Restaurant which is a couple of doors down from the Hotel. As I mentioned the Hotel is very tired and prior to arriving the Inghams customer service was absolutely shocking but I am pleased to say that when we arrived the service by the Inghams staff was second to none. Just a few mentions to Sophie the Hotel manager, Jack, Will, Arthur, David and Chris. The restaurant staff were also just fantastic. So before leaving the UK and on booking I requested a quiet room. I was offered room 217 by Inghams UK. I have to say this was possibly the noisiest room in the Hotel. In fact my friends were occupying room 216 and 215 and they had the same problem. The cinema is below these rooms so you have the audio from the Hobbit playing most nights and was extremely loud, then above us was Le Tremplain Restaurants kitchen so up til about 2am was very noisy and then quiet until 6am when it got noisy again. On one day they were clearing the snow outside with a mini digger from 5am and it sounded like a war zone! Take earplugs as this blocked out quite a lot of the noise. The beds themselves are very comfortable and the staff will come in every day if you want to make the beds and change to towels. Our rooms temperature was perfect. The decor is very dated with the main thing is that the rooms are clean. Our bathroom was a fair size and I got very excited when I saw there was a jacuzzi bath! Unfortunately none of jacuzzi baths were working but nevertheless great to have a bath with lots of hot water! There were 32 of us in our group staying at the Hotel and some had bathrooms that were a lot smaller. In my eyes we were there to ski and you only sleep in the room. Two years ago we stayed at the Hotel Les Grandes Alpes which is literally across the road from Hotel Anemones but we did pay more than double for staying 5 star and it was only half board. You get what you pay for. Food was I think excellent and the soups were outstanding. Presentation was superb and wine was also excellent and plentiful. All in all Hotel Anemones was great but just could do with a lick of paint. Inghams staff are lovely and helpful but my recommendation is dont stay in room 215, 216 or 217 and possibly take earplugs.

Room Tip: Dont choose rooms 215, 216 or 217
