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.
