Travelled to Croux in March. Location is very central which means it's great for the town but not so good for the main access lifts because they are both at opposite ends of the town even though they deposit you at the same spot on the mountain. Fortunately the hotel runs a taxi service so no need to walk if you don't want to. Ski and boot storage is up the mountain at £2 a day so that further reduces the hassle making Croux a good spot overall.
Hotel itself is of a decent standard and works on a B&B basis which allows for exploration of the local restaurants. There is plenty of choice but ask the hotel to recommend as they know the non tourist spots. Avoid eating on Via Roma as they are all the same and nothing like as nice as the hidden gems.
If you travel with Crystal beware their single room con. Two of us booked these and were charged a £70 single room supplement which implies under occupancy in a double or twin. The rooms ware both in fact singles with absolutely no way of taking an extra bed of any size so there is no justification for a supplement. We still await an explanation and refund
Lounge/bar area is comfortable enough but is part of the reception area and has no real bar atmosphere. Wifi works well on all floors but less well in the bar area...which is unusual.
Staff excellent and friendly.
Courmayeur ski area is pretty and varied but quite small so I advise you take the opportunity to visit La Thuile and La Rosiere which are on he pass for any two days in the week. It's only £4 return by bus, takes about 30 mins and leaves from just below the hotel and drops you at the main lifts in La Thuile. Town was quiet during our week so don't expect a rocking après ski scene.
