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.
