Excellent location and probably the only decent prices piste side in Courchevel 1850. A full size bottle of Veuve Clicquot Champagne for 50 Euros is reasonable in a pub in the UK - for a mountain restaurant in Courchevel 1850 it's a bargain. Skiers menu and buffet excellent value too although service can be a bit slow (but then it is France!).

An ideal location for our party of friends, though it was also clear that it is very family friendly. It has everything you could want for a fantastic skiing holiday, combining the immense convenience of ski-in ski-out with very a good menu (& winelist) that rotates throughout the week. Our rooms were very clean and had heating racks for any wet clothes, the bar is cosy and perfect for relaxed apres skis. The staff were always friendly and helpful, both in the restaurant and in the in-house ski shop (where you can rent top quality equipment & also buy lift passes). They allowed us to change our skis to powder skis very easily when the conditions changed in the middle of our week. The outdoor lunch terrace is also a wonderful setting on a nice day, and the buffet is very well stocked – the oysters in particular are a real luxury. I recommend the Courcheneige for the complete package. It allows you to get on the slopes straight from the hotel, well rested & well fed.

When I reviewed this hotel in 2008 it merited one blob. I can see it wasn't much better in 2009 and 2010. It has now changed totally - very good, definitely meriting 4 blobs.
This time, the staff were competent and professional, the management was on the ball, the kitchen did an excellent job. Even the rooms had been improved.
The dinner menu didn't offer much choice of starter or main, but what was served was good.
The sweets, and they way they were 'served', were quite exceptionally good.
There is still the long drag up the ramp when you arrive, and the tiny lifts, and poor wifi, but everything else is good.
The value-for-money, by Courchevel1850 standard, is excellent.

I've been to the Courcheneige many times over the past 12 years and always found it first rate.
This year for the first time, we found the waiters in the inside bar surly and took ages to get served. What was more of an issue was an unhonoured lunch reservation. I had phoned to reserve a table for lunch (the number I have used for several seasons) and was surprised that there was no table for us.
The Maitre d' sat us at a table, telling us we would be looked after. 20 minutes passed, French waiters have an impressive way of ignoring eye contact and even waving arms.
When I was finally acknowledged at 2.15 for a 1.30 reservation, I was told that the kitchen had shut and that no further orders were being taken.
Could I find the Maitre d' or other senior staff, no chance.
Certainly won't be going back, that's for sure, which is a shame as in the past we have always been looked after so well

a fantastic hotel and our 4 th visit was as good as the rest - as a family of 5 ( 11 - 8 - 6 ) it is great value with good rooms very clean and comfy beds.

Its incredible for 1850 and ski in and ski out has made the difference with everyone having an easy start and end to the day - it has effectivley taught our kids to ski as we were all beginners.

food and staff lovely and the in house ski shop very helpful.

it was tempting not to write a review as we don't want everyone knowing the secret to a great ski holiday !

This was yet another great holiday at the Courcheneige - apart from the weather! This Hotel has a lot going for it - great location and fair prices being amongst the top ones. But what sets it apart from most of its rivals is the service and team work. From boss Neil to the guys who make the beds there is a common team ethos that makes one welcome, seeks to help and is always cheerful. This has to be one of the best run Hotels we stay in. Having its own on site ski hire shop, which although a separate business is also blessed with the same ethos, is for us another big plus. The dinners and bar drinks are great and 50 Euros for a bottle Veuve Cliquot in a ski resort not bad! So why not a five?

Well the bed this year was just on the edge of OK and some of the place has a distinctly "old" feel to it. There were some Russian and Turkish guests who needed a bit of education in their hotelling skills, although you cannot fault the management for this. Thier obstructing of the aisles and hording of fruit and food had to be "admired"!

But overall this is a very good offering given that it is a short ski to the Croisette and that you really can ski in and out.
