It's nice, but apart from the food there is no point staying here for skiing. You are too far from Chourchevel 1850 to get the real advantage of the Courchevel apres-ski and spirit of the place. Take the same money and stay in a much better location and quality of place at other resorts.
Food: As per other comments Dinner is fantastic if you like French food - the chef is imaginative and extremely talented. Every night is a feast.
However they should take 10% of the cash/effort away from dinner and put it towards breakfast which is the same poor fare (considering it is for skiers) every day.
Rooms: Very recently renovated, so the rooms and bathrooms are clean and bright. But cramped and cheap-feeling and many have a nondescript view.
Lobby/Lounge: Old fashioned, cramped. But because of the excellent service it feels actually very welcoming as the stay goes on. Good free wi-fi access in the lounge (moderate in rooms).
Location: Absolutely not ski-in/ski-out. Only a minute or so to walk (uphill) for good skiers. 5-10 minutes walk for beginners or snowboarders. Not walking distance to any kind of night life. You'll need to call a cab to and from 1850 (if you have a mobile this is very easy and quick and is about 30 euros each way) after dinner as the busses are 1 an hour at that time.
I didn't have a bad time here, and if you really want tio ski Courchevel, and this is the only available option, then it's fine, but it isn't really worth it, especially if you have beginners with you or want good Apres Ski.
