“New year trip”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Manager Thierry was really nice but when he wasn't around unfortunately staff seemed a bit lax. Customer service girl was very lacking and every morning we had to clear and set our own table for breakfast after a large school trip had eaten. Staff weren't really using any common sense as there was one person standing by the coffee machine pouring coffee when he/she would have been better suited clearing and setting tables Thought this would improve as the week went on but it didn't. Arriving back early from skiing on new years day staff were sat in bar chatting with one member of staff lying over the chairs (and didn't get up when i came in). All seemed to be hungover. Hopefully the service will improve as the season goes on. Ski tech was great though. Very helpful. Happy hour in bar when all the school kids were wanting milk shakes and other adults needed serving could have done with more bar staff or just someone getting off their backsides to lend a hand. Took for ever to get served. Hotel situation is great. Short walk to slopes and able to ski right back to hotel. Room clean and decent size. Food was okay, lots to eat for breakfast including hot sausages and bacon which was a bonus. I have been on many ski trips on adult and school trips and this was not really up to the standard I expected for the price. No wine with meal even on New Year's Eve. Evening entertainment just about non existent. Saying all this with a different customer service person this trip could have been miles better. The place has great potential. Just a shame the staff who on the whole were nice hadn't been properly trained or helped out. I hope it improves for future guests. Resort aimed at beginners to intermediate but Seybelles area large and some great long runs.

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies but best facing south or west for the better view.

The hotel is in an excellent location, three minutes walk to the lifts and it is possible to ski to the door on the return if you plan your exit from the nursery slopes building up enough speed to get up the slope to the back door.

What I didnt like about the hotel was the ridiculous lighting system which is time controlled and puts the stairwell into darkness which is rather dangerous. The same system is in the area that you put your ski boots on which plunges you into the same dark hole but this time with the trip hazzard of others feet before a brave soul presses the switch at the other side of the room.

The staff were new to the hotel and worked hard in the restaurant and bar. The bar area did not have enough seating for everyone. Drinks were over 5 Euros a pint but half a caraffe of wine just 4, the red was drinkable as was the rose when chilled.

In general the food was adequate, sometimes the portions were on the small side but three courses were served daily albeit they could do with adding a bit more flavour. Breakfast standard croissants, ham and cheese, eggs, bread and cereal, plenty to set you up for the day however the tea was lukewarm.

We took a travel kettle, a tip from a previous holiday as this is not provided, a box of teabags and the milk kept cool on the balcony.

Low points, the main players were not good at actually doing things they said they would from mix ups with ski passes to not booking restaurants. Dont rely on the "rep" keeping you informed. A trip to the tourist information may be more useful.

The ski equipment available in the hotel is of a reasonable standard for anything up to intermediate and helmets were provided. This seems to be the norm on the slopes now.

The hotel was basic but clean with a welcome log fire. Unfortunately they didnt stretch to afternoon tea and cakes which is a fundemental after a day on the slopes.

I would go to the resort again but not the hotel, not wheelchair friendly either.

A very noisey hotel for some reason - not the guests though

The good news for 2012 is that Thierry is still here as hotel manager. As regulars with Rocketski at Christmas, the first week can suffer a few niggles as staff new to the hotel settle in. This year was probably the most trouble-free – All the staff worked hard, were friendly and appeared well organised.
Location – 4.5/5 almost ski in/out – you’ll probably need to do at least a bit of pushing/poling. The few bars and shops in the resort are a few minutes walk. The hotel itself is one of the more attractive buildings, but between two purpose built apartment blocks.
Rooms 4/5 – Our room was plenty warm enough, master control of electric heater is via the hotel but Thierry makes this clear and what to do if you need it warmer (we certainly didn’t) Bath with shower over, hairdryer in bathroom. Always had plenty of hot water but others said it took time to come through. All rooms have balcony/view. Bed was a bit uncomfortable and could do with more hooks for skiwear – our only niggle. Room cleaning was very good.
Food – 4.5/5 – Overall very good, only a couple of minor issues. Decent evening menu includes onion soup, tartiflette, lamb tagine. Choice of starters and meat/veggie main + dessert. Breakfast – all you will need – cereals, bread, cheese, meat, yogurt, fresh fruit + porridge and boiled eggs, tea/coffee. Dining room seating arrangements changed a few times during the week and free-for-all seating at breakfast caused a bit of confusion but no real problems. Service by the staff was always excellent.
General areas 3/5 – Bar area is ok, real fire, but area not really big enough for everyone. Could do with more soft seating for relaxing. Bar prices sensible. Ski room – warm/dry and each room gets its own locker to hold 2 pairs of skis/boots. Lift efficient and always working.
The resort – 3/5 Ski area was much bigger than expected. It’s ideal for intermediates, limited for experts although lots of off-piste opportunities. We just found it lacked variety and a rather slow lift system made it felt like we didn’t cover as much ground as usual. Very limited après ski activity - The main resort retail areas are at the base of the larger block contains a few bars and shops. There is a swimming pool/sauna facility and cinema here too. The Sherpa shop stocks everything you’re likely to need – bread, beer,wine, cheese, biscuits…even snow chains.

Overall experience was good, the staff and manager at the hotel made the difference

Room Tip: Take a travel kettle!

We went with ROCKETSKI as a ski package holiday and the price was very competitive and excellent value. The Hotel has great twin size rooms with bath, shower and a balcony. Half the rooms face south so these have the better views and balcony. The public rooms are fine with a good bar and keen prices. The food was limited in choice but good quality and portions and the breakfast is a good quality "continental" choice. The staff were excellent, helpful and friendly and the package includes access in the Hotel itself to their own ski equipment and a Ski Technician. He was helpful in adjusting boots and skis and general advice. The Manager, Thiery, is a great character and very much in evidence. The Rep was very helpful. We shared the Hotel with 3 groups of school children who mixed in very well and were very well behaved.
The resort links well to a much larger area and the walk to the main chair lift is about 3 minutes with a ski run back into the rear of the Hotel. LE Corbier has shops, cafes, outdoor swimming pool and a Cinema.

Room Tip: Ask for a south facing room on the 3rd or 4th floor.

We stayed at Corbier last Christmas. We had a fantastic week. The rooms were roomy and comfortable with good size bathrooms. The food is great value with choice at all meals, we did have to wait sometimes as we were seated near to the dining room door but we didn't mind we chatted to the other guests and enjoyed the great value table wine! Christmas dinner was very nice but could have been a bit jollier (we bought our own party poppers and balloons which went down a treat with the other families). the owner is on hand and they have their own boot room for fitting. Even accomodating my son who is size 12!

This hotel is fantastic value for money, you can ski in and out round the back and the lifts are a short distance. The ski runs available varied from green to black and off piste. eating out was cheap compared to the French resorts and food very good. We took out four 'children' aged 16,19,20 and 22 and we had a fab time. They were able to go off alone or we skied together most of the time. The weather was sunny almost every day making the views to die for and the snow was soft and powdery so we were really spoilt.

I stayed here for a week holiday of March this year. The hotel service was great and the location couldn't be better. Large rooms with a balcony, although basic, nothing was left wanting. Friendly staff.

The expanse of the resort means kept me busy for a week however would also be fantastic for beginners. Off piste possibilities in this resort look fantastic however with the March sun weren't worth exploring whilst I was here.
