“Very nice family run hotel”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

I stayed here 5 nights with my boyfriend and four friends. The family running this hotel are lovely and can't do enough to help. After the first night I complained the bed was too hard, and they swapped it while we were out!

The rooms are quite small but well furnished in a mountain/cabin style and the bathrooms are large and very clean (although we didn't have a bath).

Breakfast was what you expect in mainland Europe: cold meat and cheese, bread and, for those with a sweet tooth, the custard-filled croissants are wonderful. The food was constantly replenished, of if things did run out they were soon replaced.

They run a shuttle to the gondola to get to the slopes between 8:30 and 10:00 and back between 3:30 and 4:30 and were quite flexible if we were a little bit late.

The main downside was that there wasn't free WIFI, but at €2 or an hour (cheeper for more hours), it wasn't extortionate, and I am told very fast.

The one thing to note about Courmayeur itself is that the restaurants all book up, and, if oyu want your dinner before 10pm it is well worth booking in advance (even if it is just as you are heading down form the slopes for later that evening).

Overall, we all really enjoyed our stay here, especially due to the warmth and friendliness of our hosts.

Room Tip: Some rooms have balconies - we didn't get on of them but they look really nice!

We stayed at Hotel Crampon for a weekend skiing trip in January. The hotel is within walking distance of the main street and the staff provide regular shuttle runs to and from the slopes. The staff were always on hand to answer any questions we had and serve us at the bar in the evening by the log fire. The room was pretty basic but comfortable and clean. The breakfast consisted of cereals, various breads, ham, cheese, usual spreads etc. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Some rooms had balconies which might be worth requesting if the sun shines.

Me, my mum, my dad and friends stayed at hotel Crampon in March on our ski holiday this year. We were so impressed by the service of the staff, they were really great!! It's owned by a family, typical warm italian style. Courmayeur is a pretty village with excellent restaurants, the pizzas you get for lunch are just amazing, the ski area is small but alternate.

The breakfast was very good, they had both local dried and cooked ham, local cheese, typical joghurt from the valley, eggs, different kinds of bread. Us swedes tend to be very picky about breakfast when on a ski holiday but on this one I couldn't complain, it was perfect. I'm very fussy about beds being too hard - no problems this time, so that was great. The rooms were nice.

They have a free shuttle that takes you to the lift which was really comfy, and in the evenings we just walked to the restaurants and bars since the hotel is situated close to the main street Via Roma. They have WiFi to an additional cost and a bar in the hotel.

Quite typical mid-class skiing hotel. Situated close to main restaurant/shopping area of Courmaeur. They also have free shuttle to cabin-lift during the skiing- season.
Friendly and attentive personnel. Breakfast was mediocre and lots of things ran out every morning.
WLAN was offered but it was quite expensive (payment by hour).

We stayed a week at the hotel Crampon during our ski holiday to Courmayeur. The room was nice, the breakfast was good and the staff was fantastic.

The hotel is situated close to Courmayeur's main street and offers a free shuttle service to the ski lift (also within walking distance). It also offers WiFi internet for 4 euro/hour and there is a lobby bar.

The ski resort is not the biggest in the area, but it offers easy access to great off piste skiing.
