“4 stars but not compared to the other 4 stars in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

The location is excellent to go skiing. You can leave/arrive with your skis on as long as there is snow on the road
The management and staff are very friendly.
There is a game room for the children with video games and all. Easy and free internet access.
The decoration is outdated - orange chairs and carpet in the dining room; fake flowers - still orange and yellow- in the stairways. You seem to be back in the 70s. Our room has been renovated so no orange there but browns and beige, much better. Small bathroom but brand lush towels and bathrobes. There is no service in the evening to open the beds, replace the towels
The restaurant is excellent.
The clientele at Christmas is mostly Russian.
The price is the same as the other 4 star of Courchevel but when you see what other hotels have to offer your wonder if the price should not be lower. I guess they have changed the criteria for 3 and 4 stars and The Sherpas is still a good 3 star but not 4 and the price should go with that.
Another problem not worth the 4 star was the smell of septic tank in the elevator and landing.

This hotel is located on top of Courchevel 1850 with easy access to town or slopes thru the hotel bus which is almost always avalible to take u to either,.Also the gondola is a short walk away and works untill 8pm which suited us well since we dine and sleep early at the hotel we were on half board.
This is a ski in hotel but not Ski out, the bus takes U to the slopes within 2 minutes away and you can ski back easily to the hotel
.Food is gourment.
Spa girl is exellent.
Swimming Pool almost empty ,there was no children around at the time we stayed there.
This hotel is priced well for expensive courchevel, it is waiting to be upgraded to 4 stars soon.

We stayed here as two couples on a ski holiday in two rooms, half board. The evening dinners were utterly delicious & the service from wait staff was friendly, efficient, first class. We also enjoyed night caps in the bar by the fire each evening. The facilities are well maintained & the rooms are very cute, with our breakfast served in the room! I have such good memories of this place & I would not hesitate to recommend it or to return again one day.

Stayed through Scott Dunn which uses this hotel extensively - very popular with families. The management is excellent but, at the end of the season, at least one staff member was a little frayed at the edges. We stayed with our two young children in an adjoining room and they were accommodated well - there is a children's tea at 6.30 which is a little late for some English kids.
For the grown-ups, the table d'hote is excellent - soup, first course, main course, chariot de fromages and an elaborate pudding. Execution stays just on just the right side of over-elaborate. The wine list goes from expensive to astronomical - this is Courchevel, after all. As with many Savoie hotels there's an over-abundance of yellow pine, but you can always gaze out over the Jardin Alpin piste if it all gets a bit much. The pool and sauna complex is a godsend for over-excited kids and over-worked muscles alike. It's a five-minute schlep to the Jardin slope, right where the 'Magic Carpet' beginners area, but if you ask nicely they'll drop you in the navette - those ski boots and skis can get heavy....
