Au Coq de Bruyere Hotel
Ranked #13 of 54 Hotels in Courchevel
Reviewed 9 April 2012

In summary this chalet hotel is really good value for money, based on its central position in Courchevel 1850. The Three Valleys is one of the most extensive ski areas available, and Courchevel 1850 has to be one of the prime resorts here!

Compared to other chalet hotels that I have used with Ski Total, this one is a little smaller, is a little more tired and lacking some ambience.

However, this is in a prime position - 5 minutes walk from La Croisette (centre) and the ski slopes.

Ski Total staff were very good in terms of efficiency, service and friendliness.

The room we had was adequate - clean, with a shower and bath and a small balcony. Not very spacious though.

Couldn't fault the food here. Breakfast was ample comprising coffee, tea, cereals, juices, croissants, bread, jam, cheese, honey etc., and with the option of hot dishes such as eggs or porridge.

After skiing, between 4.30 and 5.30 afternoon tea is served. Plenty of hot soup, bread, cakes, biscuits and hot drinks.

Dinner, was even more ample. Pre-dinner drinks and canapes were served in the bar before a sumptuous three course meal with the option of a fourth cheese course and coffee after dessert. There were always several options for each course including excellent vegetarian options. Plenty of house wine (with choice) was served with dinner - all complimentary. Dinner is served six days a week allowing you to sample the local resturants for one day. The bar was OK, not too atmospheric, but Carlo the bar manager manned his post expertly and the drinks prices are quite reasonable for the expensive resort.

Ski locker room can get a bit crowded, but has really good boot warmers and ski racks. Just don't get caught up in there with any more than three people.

Ski Total provided plenty of entertainment in the evening (pub quiz, bar crawls etc.) and also offer a free hosting service three times a week, to help you get your bearings.

All in all, if I decide to stay in this resort again (and who wouldn't!) I wouldn't hesitate to book myself in the Coq De Bruyere with Ski Total again for the location and the excellent value.

This chalet hotel being used by Ski Total does look a little tired and the rooms are small. However, the rooms (and especially the bathrooms) are clean, there is plenty of hot water, the lounge area is comfortable, the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent - lots of choice and special requests catered for on a daily basis. We were on the 3rd floor at the back of the hotel and did not experience any noise during our week long stay. Ideal location for ski-ing.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back were quiet. Wine is taken away as soon as dinner is finished but there was plenty...

Read the reviews in here before we went. I was a bit concerned regarding some of the comments. Needn't have worried. This hotel is excellent value for money.The food is great and the staff excellent. If you live in Claridges in London then book in next door at St Joseph s at £2500 a night.
Rooms excellent
Staff first class
Location could nt be bettered
Bar Cheapest in 1850

Stayed here week beginning 8th Jan. Room had recently been refurbished and was spotlessly clean. Shower room small but did the job. Our room was on the first floor and was front facing. One or two mornings we did have a snowplough start very early outside the hotel but at least there was lots of snow to clear! Staff in hotel were extremely friendly and helpful & food was very good. The resort in general is very pricey compared to Mottaret & considering how expensive drinks/food were around the resort the hotel was extremely good value for money.

Wish I could give this a good rating (3.5 rating) The location of this hotel is brilliant. Turn right from the front door you can walk in 2 mins to the main lift area; turn left out of the front door 20 seconds and you are at the blue run behind the hotel. We fortunately mangaged to get a last minute deal (£600pp) over new year 2012. The way the flights fell we had 8 days skiing. Ski area is excellent.
As regards the hotel service- Ski Total really looked after us. Just to name a few Paul (now left the hotel), Edmund, Nancy & Rebecca. Food was generally very good. A few nights were a let down with menu choice i.e. Duck OR Fish main course, but I've had a lot worse in ski chalets.

Just a few negatives to point out- The hotel can be noisy. We had a room on the first floor facing the rear of the hotel. First floor= ground floor at the back of the hotel, so we had some road noise from early morning snow ploughing. We could also hear late night noise (guests being happy :-) ) from the residents lounge & hotel doors slamming etc. I didn't sleep that well- bring ear plug if you sleep lightly.
WiFi is poor- there is one access point in reception which only covers a small area of the lounge. I suggested to the manager Andrew that they could extend the signal for very little cost, but from his reaction I doubt if this will ever be done. Once connected all is ok. The number of residents trying to get internet access is amazing.
Our room (40) was a good size- but had had a leak in the shower room the week before arrival (which didn't get fully repaired all week). Most of the other rooms are small- don't expect too much.
The whole hotel could do with a face lift but then you'll be paying £££. Sound proof (and non slamming) room doors would be a good start.
Drinks prices in the hotel refect the resort prices i.e. expensive. They should be a lot cheaper in the hotel
No sauna.

Some Positives-
Breakfast was good for us- varied 3 choices for hot i.e. pancake OR boiled egg & toast OR porrage OR sausage & egg on toast. + cold options of cereal etc.
Lots of hot water & working central heating
Boot warmer for ski boots.
Open fire in the lounge area.
Unlimited free wine with your meal- white, red or rose.
Evening food generally good (canapes (with aperitif) starter, Main Course, Dessert, Cheese & coffee)

Thats about it- get a good deal here, don't expect a modern 3 or 4 star hotel & enjoy your skiing! oh- and bring plenty of Euros if you eat or drink out :-|
