We have just had a week at Le Portetta and consider it to be one of the best run hotels we have ever stayed in. The staff were exceptional. Especially M. Gilbert and Betty in the dining room, the wonderfully welcoming reception team, the really efficient housekeeping and the great guys in the ski room. Everywhere is spotless, our room was always perfect. The dining room was comfortable, the service was excellent,the food was generous and delicious. The location of the hotel is unbeatable! You walk a very short distance to the drag lift or the bubble in the morning and you can ski right back to the hotel terrace at the end of the day.
Our room had a lovely view of the pistes and the goings on at the junior ski school, hours of amusement there! The room was def. compact but it did not matter as we had room for everything. The bathroom was very well fitted out with excellent fittings, always plenty of hot water a very comfy bath to soak in, good shower etc. The wc is separate which good. Bed was comfy. The rooms are incredibly well sound proofed, you don't hear a thing from next door or above which is great, slept like a log.
The lounge was a lovely area for a homecoming cup of tea or chocolate. The 4-6pm happy hour is welcome as prices are Courchevel high. 5 euros for a cup of tea is reduced to 4 euros. We thought that it would be nice if hotel residents had a rate slightly below visitors to the terrace or lounge. All the staff got to know you and never passed by without a friendly "bonjour".
The Fire and Ice terrace looked cool but we did not eat there as we were always up the mountain skiing at lunch time. The hotel made reservations at mountain restaurants for us, no problem. Loved Le Belair above 1650.
This is a wonderful hotel and we can't wait to go back.
