Spent a week in hotel Marindre in January 2016. First of all the staff were absolutely lovely, helpful and friendly, could not fault them. Communal sitting room was good better than some we have stayed in. BUT we certainly don't recommend room 204, too small for a twin room, only suitable for a single or kids bunk room. Could not...

We has a family room - bedroom with ensuite and a bunk room with loo - so much better than piling the whole family into a single room. The layout of the hotel including boot room and ski hut makes it easy to get a young family out of the door in the morning. High tea was a treat.

It's great to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay with us in the Chalet Hotel Mariandre, Mabpetroc, and that you found the family room to be particularly suitable (and far preferable to one-room arrangements). Here at Esprit we have families at the forefront of our minds and do endeavour to offer different accommodation arrangements to suit, and... More

Excellent service from Team Esprit led by Shelley. Since we holidayed here 5 yrs ago the rooms have been updated and are now comfortable with lovely ensuite bathrooms. Food and wine was good and childcare really excellent. This was a great place to watch the Tour de France from and for tour week, fully catered, offered phenomenal value for money.... More

We had a great summer holiday and our boys age 4 and 6 really enjoyed the kids club at the hotel. The staff was very warm and friendly and willing to accommodate our individual requests . The rooms themselves were small but pretty typical for European hotels, but it didn't matter since there are so many great summer activities to... More

The hotel is set up for families with young children. The kids clubs were very good and kept the children fully occupied when not at their skiing lessons. Good food and comfortable but functional rooms. The staff were superb.

Jamie and his team run this place like clockwork! Nothing is too much trouble and they seem to work around the clock. As usual Esprit proved a great hit with the children, great nannies and child care staff. First time in Alpe d'Huez and it really is as sunny as they say!! One of the best resorts for mountain views... More

I stayed at the Mariandre at the end of Jan / start of Feb with my daughter for a weeks skiing holiday. Having only previously been on "adult" ski holidays, I was somewhat apprehensive as to how this would be going on my own with a just turned three year old, as my husband wasn't able to come with us...

The staff and the lovely food were the making of this holiday. The perfect mix of friendly and professional and always incredibly helpful. My 5 year old daughter loved the childcare staff and I was most impressed by the quality of the childre's teas and my vegetarian options. My "foodie" husband was also impressed with the standard of his meals.... More
