“A real gem....Basic rooms, but excellent service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

I stayed here for a short 4 day break with 5 chaps on our annual "lads trip".

The bedrooms were certainly basic with mine (no. 42) consisting of 2 wooden twin beds with bedside table, a small desk and chair, a small built in wardrobe and the smallest flat screen TV i have ever seen. Although they lacked much storage space (Particularly for drying ski gear), they were comfortable clean and had a few nice touches like the Molton Brown toiletries.

However, the rest of the hotel (Bar, restaurant, food, location, cost) was fantastic and the service from the staff was very good. They were all friendly, helpful and happy to go the extra mile. The only negative was the lack of spa/pool facilities as it would have been nice to relax after a day on the slopes.

The hotel is located about 20m from the slope, which means it is only a 1 minute ski down to the main lift stations....A major plus for me.

Overall, i would certainly rate Saint Louis as an excellent hotel, even compared to many of the other more glitzy places, and I will certainly be back there with the lads. But i think there would need to be a few improvements in the rooms and facilities before bringing the family for a more relaxing holiday.

Dear RichAMartin,

Many thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay with us here at The Hotel Saint Louis. I was pleased to read that you on the whole really enjoyed your holiday particularly the service that you received from the team & the meals.
I would agree that some of the standard rooms may be a little on the simple side but we can offer Superior Rooms as an alternative should you wish to consider this next time.

We look forward to welcoming you & the rest of your party back here next season.

Kind regards,

Helen Rowden

We have just returned from the most fantastic short break at the Hotel St Louis. It was perfect in every way. The hotel was fabulous, ski in-ski out, the rooms were great, staff wonderful, food amazing, ski hire trouble free…Lots of lovely touches - Molton Brown toiletries, fizz and canapes at 7.00pm, nothing was too much trouble.

This is the fifth year that 5 of us have been on an office ski trip and was absolutely the best by far; we will definitely come straight to Flexiski for our booking next year and we will be back to the St Louis.

Thank you for listening to our requirements and making sure you matched them exactly.

19 of us stayed here for my birthday. Great food, reasonably priced drinks, great staff, decent bedroom, pretty much ski in ski out. The weather was perfect, so that helped, but I would definitely go back.

Our 2nd. visit to the Hotel St.Louis this February. Again, the food was very good. The breakfast is certainly adequate and the evening meals were excellent and varied - choices at each course. The free afternoon tea and cakes each day, a lovely added extra. The bar/lounge areas are welcoming and the staff as always, young and eager to please. The live music one evening - this year a singer/guitarist was very good. In an unbeatable position - just walk over the road onto the bellecote piste . The villages of Courchevel are all pleasant and a huge ski area for the energetic. We always go back each year - definately our favourite place.Carol and John. Devon .

The hotel is comfortable and has a warm, friendly atmosphere. The staff are extremely helpful, couldn't do enough to help with one of our party whose suitcase had been lost on arrival at Geneva. Food choices good and well cooked. Wine reasonable. Will definitely go back. Well done to the whole team, what a thoroughly good bunch!

It’s the third time I have stopped at Saint Louis having discovered the hidden gem last year.

The St Louis is in a fantastic position on adjacent to the bellecote piste in Courchavel 1850.

The staff are very enthusiastic and friendly.

The food, particularly the evening meal is fine although arguably the best meal of the day is an English breakfast.


The rooms are comfortable if a little tight on space however the bathroom and showers are very good.

The nightlife in 1850 isn’t what it was therefore the bar becomes the centre of attraction. The bar is comfortable and spacious although some of the sofas could do with upgrading.

It is certainly the best mid range ski hotel I have stopped at and I have recommended it to friends and family who feel the same.

Disappointed to see a few negative reports; we stayed last week and had a great stay, the hotel is well appointed, a few minor rough edges. We had a fabulous room at the back, but I believe some rooms are small - but you are on a ski holiday !!
Bar staff - Will (Ronan), Jamie and George and great fun, and all the other girls in the restaurant are all lovely. Food great, and position on the piste - A1
