“Super staff, great location , children happy”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

The staff made the week, they were bright, attentive and amusing. They coped well with a hotel that is past it's best. Location is superb with a great bar below.
The rooms have def seen better days, the food, on the whole was very good although still seem to be struggling with ordering the right amount.
Oxygene, the ski school were excellent.
In summary go for the staff, location and atmosphere , not the luxury.
La Plagne is great for skiers of all ages and ability. Lots of wide blues to gain confidence and more challenging stuff up on the glacier and over towards Les Arc.

Being a long term Mark Warner I was expecting a lot more from this place.
The main issue is the deplorable state of the hotel. We were dropped off the bus and welcomed by friendly staff. This though was one of the only enjoyable moments of our whole trip.
The food, the rooms and the entertainment were all well below Mark Warner standard. The lack of motivation and general discontent shown by most of the staff clearly reflects on poor leadership and management.
This resort reflects the total loss of credibility and standards of such a prestigious company.

We stayed here at the end of January this year, we were part of a large group and we had a fantastic time.
OK so the hotel is a little rough around the edges and could do with a spruce up........but the staff more than make up for it, each and every member of staff goes out of their way to make friends with you and ensure you have a great holiday. When we pulled up after a long coach journey all the staff were lined up on the hotel steps waving to greet us and then took our bags to our rooms, and this was the level of service throughout our stay.
The food in the restaurant was out of this world, and credit must go to Neil the head chef a credit to his profession.
We used the ski hosting several times and thoroughly enjoyed it, Andrew the head host, greeted us like old friends and treated us like mates throughout the week, and really made my holiday for me, it isn't like the normal staff - guest thing in this hotel everyone is there for the same reason.....to ski and I think that's why they treat you so well.
As for the resort I have stayed in la plagne several times and always enjoyed my self, something for everyone with some good off piste.
On the whole if you want to do loads of skiing, eats some fantastic food and have a great laugh with friends and staff, then this is the place for you.
My first time with Mark Warner, but most certainly not my last.
Thank you once again to all the staff, you are a credit to your company.

Room Tip: The ones overlooking the slopes give you such a brilliant view, although can be a little noises, but...

Usual good standards of food and OK accommodation with very good childcare. Paying for wifi and squeaky doors are the only irritations. Nice mix of people, much more down to earth than val d'isere, St Anton or Courchevel.

Room Tip: Use the shutters and you are far less likely to moan about noise from the bar

Just home after a fabulous week in the French Alps. Glorious sunshine and perfect snow. We stayed at the Hotel Christina in La Plagne Centre. Our room 102 was very spacious for a family of four. We had two bedrooms and a big bathroom.

The whole hotel is in need of attention re decor. It looks dated and tired. The lift is very old and stopped working one day during our trip.

However, the location is ideal; set about 150m from the ski schools and chair lifts. The resort is perfect for those looking for easy access to a huge variety of ski runs.

The staff at the hotel provided a fantastic service. Everyone was friendly and helpful without exception. Breakfast, tea with cake and dinner included in the price and on the whole, good quality. Dinner was served efficiently which is always appreciated after the whole day on the slopes. Everyone working at this hotel was professional during our stay.

My only complaint would be the noise. We were in the room above Scotty's Bar so there was music playing until half eleven most evenings. Perhaps a room above the first floor may solve this problem. This was not as troublesome as the machines rolling past the hotel during the night to groom the pistes. We were awake a few times through the night as a result. Effective double glazing would help.

Room Tip: Higher floors may mean you escape the noise at night.

Have recently returned from a great holiday with mark warner. Was first time for us with this ski operator and would have no hesitations returning. Read all the reviews beforehand and can see why most are positive - food is of a good standard, our room was spacious, wine in the evening not cheap, cheap plonk and staff very accommodating. Only minor downside is that scotty's bar can be a little noisy on 2/3 nights of the week mainly due to live bands I think, but if you are after après ski then of course it's perfect. It is a hotel for all types, families, singles and groups and they do well trying to please all. Skiing is best I've encountered for intermediates. Nice wide blues and not long to queue, but we were in the quiet season.

Room Tip: Go high to steer clear of the noise.

Having taken our first Mark Warner Holiday at San Augustino Greece Last summer were we was very well looked after by George,the hotel manager and his team, So much so we booked our Christmas week Holiday with them just hoping another hotel could live up to the samehigh standards,

Well let me tell you, Jen, her team and resort really exceeded all our expectation, Although the hotel was small in comparison and on arrival we started to worry we would not be able to escape a load of screaming kids we could not have been further from the truth. The hotel was quite with plenty of area's to relax throughout the Day if not skiing, If you do have Children its great to see some of the same staff in the child care team from Greece (Hi Abby!!) even though we had no children with us the feed back from other Parents was great and when you do see the children they are always well looked after enjoying themselves, So well done Charlotte and the Childcare team.

The Bar staff were great and friendly ( hope Becca is feeling better from her accident)
All the food was good could possibly do with a bit more choice but what we did order was good.

All in all it would seem that Mark Warner really have got thing right and truly understand that the secret behind a good company is great staff! Well done and we look forward to many more holidays with Mark Warner
