“The staff make it the best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

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

I have been going to this Hotel with my friend every year for , the last 5 years, every year it gets better. the staff are so helpful, The Hotel Manageress seems to improve them each year, this year the rooms were immaculate the staff of cleaners well supervised, nothing is to much trouble, the food beautiful and plenty full, and restaurant is well run, I had a problem 1 evening and although I had no kids with me the boss of Child care sorted it out,
Lunch was usually eaten in Skotty's Bar attached to the Hotel excellent value, the Apres ski is amazing the Manager there seems to create an atmosphere you don't find elsewhere.
Marvelous cant praise the place enough, I'v penciled it into my diary for next year already.
The snow this last 2 years has been excellent this is a ski in ski out resort I literally skied back to the Hotel Doors, the nearest lift 50 meters.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms ion this Hotel look out onto the Piste.

If you want luxury accommodation, fine dining etc, you wouldn't choose Mark Warner. But if you want great on-piste location, close to ski school, child/family friendly, relaxed and friendly then this hits the spot. Stayed in Christina w/c 13th Jan 2013 with my husband and 9 year old daughter. Yes, there is some noise at night with piste bashers/Scotty's - but nothing that caused us any real disturbance. Large room with three beds & balcony overlooking the piste was a little tired etc but was clean & tidy, good en-suite (sounded like most en-suites had recently been done up) - you spend so little time in your room whilst skiing, do you need anything more? What really made the holiday for us was the staff - really friendly & helpful, nothing too much trouble. We didn't have need of childcare, but after the first night our daughter decided that high tea with her new-found friends followed by film club at 7.30pm, was far more fun than sitting with us for dinner. Staff really flexible, so they were happy for her to chop & change. All childcare ladies that we saw, and who looked after children in film club, were lovely. Surprised at how many guests (many of which were repeats) were there without children - all seemed to be enjoying the relaxed, social atmosphere. You can decided whether to dine alone in the evening or join another table - we chose to do the latter each evening and met some lovely people over the course of the week. MW use Oxygene for ski hire and ski school - great service, and skis delivered to hotel for you :) My husband also booked a private lesson with Oxygene - v. reasonable compared to other ski schools and a great lesson - he was really impressed. All in all had a great week. Will definitely be repeating the experience.

Room Tip: To keep noise disturbance to a minimum, ask to be on the 4th floor.
