“Beware room 102 not room 101”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

I referred to trip advisor prior to booking and felt comfort in the fact that all the comments were positive.Did any of you stay in room 102?
This was meant to be a standard room.It was not 3* standard by a long way.It was drab,the decor and furniture old and damaged and very dark at all times.The bathroom door had been cut to enable it to be opened past the wash basin,yes it was small.It was extremely cold as was most of the hotel during our stay.We also had the added irritation of the hotel boiler being situated beneath us and when it boomed into operation at between 4.30 and 5.00 every morning it was an unwanted alarm call and unfortunately the noise did not allow one to return to sleep hence we are still suffering from sleep deprivation.One positive point the cleaners did a good job with new towels etc. daily .When we asked to be moved to another room the man who may have been the Hotel manager flippantly smiled and informed us that he could not and in fact we were lucky as there was a room which was even worse..the so called bar was an extension of the reception and was devoid of atmosphere at all.The bar was limited and had no draught beer and if you wanted serving the person behind reception was needed.The log fire was never started because someone had used to many logs previously.A similar scenario happened in the restaurant were I heard someone ask where the Gorgonzola cheese had gone.The basic retort was" its gone" no attempt to replenish it.
In fairness most of the staff were very nice and friendly especially in the restaurant.The breakfast was poor ,the fresh fruit salad could have had a range of fruit in it and the toaster was a joke.It took an age to get something warm out of it.If everyone staying wanted toast it would be lunch before breakfast was completed.
Evening meal was quite good with nice food and a reasonable range although veal was prevalent.The position to the main street and cable car was good.
Courmayeur itself was wonderful with great skiing which was extended by the resorts of Pila and La Thuille.
Will definately return to Courmayeur but not the Hotel Courmayeur.

Room Tip: Go else where or pay much more for a decent room

We booked this hotel last minute and what a good decision! It's a very warm and cosy hotel with decor to reflect this- just what you want when your skiing.

The staff were amazing, so welcoming and friendly at all times of the day. There is a communal lounge downstairs where we sat most evenings before dinner, always got brought crisps and canopies.

The town itself is very sheik, lovely shops.

We hired a car so we could drive over to chamonix, would recommend doing this however the tunnel is expensive to cross the border if you don't have a unlimited pass but the skiing is worth it! Perfect location.

Would highly recommend this hotel!

We enjoyed a room with sensational views out over the mountains, $1M view for sure. The breakfast was varied enough and the staff were helpful. Furnishings maybe due for an upgrade however many people would like the old worldly charm of it I'm sure.

The hotel is located 5 minutes walk from the lifts in the Courmayeur city centre, just opposite Bar Rome.

If you want to go to a wonderful part of Italy and enjoy sun & winter sports Courmayeur is an ideal place for you. But please note that there 70% of red traces there and only 2 green ones.
So you should be advanced skier or snowboarder to fully enjoy it.

The hotel is great, with a great location, outstanding staff and the best cook in the world!
Every day we had a different meal and honestly I have never ever eaten that much (it was mostly because we couldn't spot our selves as the food was so great)

Definitely the best hotel in Courmayeur and we suggest it to everyone!

Room Tip: ask for a room on the Back of the hotel and on the top floor as the street near the hotel is quite n...

Cosy, communal areas making a great cafe latte. Room good, could be improved by a bit of updating and better lighting. Bathroom very small but with a good hairdryer and plentiful hot water. Maitre d'e a bit formal but reasonably friendly. Local wine excellent as was the pasta. Reasonable yomp to the ski lift but great location for shops and the main drag of the resort. Typical Italian food, which we love, simple and tasy. Basic continental breakfast, fresh juice, croissants. I would have loved more local cheese and ham and the evening food could have been better with the addition of a salad bar. I would go again.

Room Tip: Choose the local wine recommended by the waiter
