The hotel was good; it has a great location as you could ski literally to the door. It would be a great place to stay as a beginner as the slope is a really easy nursery slope. The food was absolutely fine. Our room was also fine; the place probably could do with some sort of updating but overall it was fine... + more

We had a very good week here. The staff were friendly and the food was really good with a lot of choice. Really enjoyed the breakfasts - meats, croissants, scrambled eggs… it was difficult to stop for breakfast to go skiing! They also put on an effort to celebrate as it was Christmas week.

· ski to and from door · close to the bars and shops of Plagne Centre · short chairlift ride to ski school meeting point


Overview - hotel description - Hotel Terra Nova, Plagne Centre description

The Terra Nova has a superb location in Plagne Centre - right at the foot of the 225km of pistes so you can jump straight on the chairlift in the morning and ski back to the door at the end of the day. Rest assured, you can expect a friendly, high quality service from the hotel staff. The Terra Nova offers an excellent range of rustic, comfortable rooms making it a good family option, with both quad and interconnecting rooms available. And all face either the slope or the valley, so it doesn’t matter where you are in the hotel, you’ll wake up every day to marvellous views.

The fabulous location also means you’re only a stone’s throw away from all the shops, restaurants and bars of the resort, so it’s ideal for families who don’t want to trek too far for some of the friendly amenities. When you’re not out exploring, you could spend an hour or so in the spa getting a treatment or simply relaxing in the sauna – the choice is yours.

All your meals are served in the hotel's panoramic restaurant, which has fantastic views of the slopes. You’ll get to pick from a plethora of international cuisines as well as more local dishes. And what's more, to go with your delicious dinners, you'll get unlimited free wine for the duration of your meal - what more could you want?

You’ll also have complimentary access to the excellent hotel-run kids’ club. It runs for six days and one evening per week, all season for kids aged 3-5 years, and during French school holidays for kids aged 6-17 years. They can enjoy a range of activities under the supervision of qualified, English-speaking professionals. Each week has a different theme, so your kids could be rehearsing for a sci-fi fantasy show or painting pictures of pretty plants. For the older ones, there are sports tournaments, creative workshops and even discos. Remember to book in advance though, as spaces get snapped up pretty quickly.

Please note:

No admittance to the sauna and fitness room for children under 15 years.
The dress code for evening meals is smart/casual.
Check-in for this hotel is at 5pm on the day of arrival - provisions will be made for guests' luggage before this time. A deposit payable by card needs to be provided at check-in.

In the Savoie region of the French Alps, La Plagne was established in the early sixties and now consists of 11 villages: 7 purpose built and 4 traditional. The aptly named Plagne Centre at the heart of the resort is the main hub of shops, restaurants and après ski. Just underneath lies Plagne 1800, a cluster of chalets spread across a steep hillside. Higher up are Aime-la-Plagne, Plagne-Soleil and Plagne-Villages, all accessible via chairlifts from Plagne Centre. Plagne Bellecote rests over a low ridge to th...
There are plenty of nursery slopes with access to free beginner lifts for those new to skiing. This is complimented by a wide choice of different ski schools ready to cater to your particular needs. The slopes around the Belle Plagne area are particularly suitable for beginners, with the blue run linking Les Bauches to Montchavin, providing a manageable step up in difficulty from the nursery slopes. For those who class themselves as intermediate standard skiers this really is paradise. 77% of the runs are gra...
It might not rival Val d'sere or Verbier for their wild party scenes, but this is an exceptional resort for unique après ski opportunities. Spend the night in the Black Sheep Igloos, facing Mont Blanc, complete with a fondue meal and a morning wakeup call with breakfast. If this isn’t your idea of fun then ice climbing in Champagny and husky sledding are also on offer. One experience not to be missed is the bobsleigh track, used for Olympic training. There are a variety of ways you can choose to go down it, bu...

"Stayed before & will book again"

Mr Jenkins, London
4/ out of 5
We’ve stayed in Hotel Terra Nova twice and will probably book to stay there again; we’ve never had any problems with it. It’s fairly basic (as a lot of ski hotels are) but the rooms are always very clean and reasonable. The food is good; the best thing about the hotel is definitely the location, which is ski in / ski out. Everything is incredibly handy for families, which is why we like it and if you have younger kids, there’s a daytime nursery thing.

"Mediocre"

Bloke from Scotland
4/ out of 5
Were we were dropped was hardly convenient and we ended up having to lug stuff up some stairs, so it’s worth being prepared for a bit of lugging when you arrive. Inside was rather tatty and could have done with a spruce up, but we weren’t paying a lot for it. To get to the ski slopes, you have to walk about 50 yards in boots and then you ski out and away. The hotel is actually on a nursery slope, so it’s really good for beginners. It’s only a very short walk to Plagne Centre to get to all the shops and ski hire. The food varied tremendously from outstanding to mediocre, but on average it was fine. Some nights it would be like school dinners and others it would be oysters. The staff were excellent - outstanding, very friendly and helpful. Our room was fit for purpose, you don’t go to a hotel like this expecting to find a presidential suite.

"All fine, apart from lifts not working"

Bob, Herts
3/ out of 5
The hotel was good; it has a great location as you could ski literally to the door. It would be a great place to stay as a beginner as the slope is a really easy nursery slope. The food was absolutely fine. Our room was also fine; the place probably could do with some sort of updating but overall it was fine. The only major problem was that there were only two lifts, and 90% of the time only one of them was working. We were up on the 5th or 6th floor and because there were so many people staying in the hotel we were sometimes waiting forever for the lifts or had to climb the stairs. They got engineers in but were struggling to keep them both going.

"No complaints, great views"

Tamara, London
5/ out of 5
We definitely had a good holiday in the Hotel Terra Nova – I liked the restaurant, our room was spacious and clean and had a nice view from the window. The interior is more traditional but it was refurbished. Our breakfasts were continental with a lot of French pastries etc., dinner was a buffet which could have got a bit boring but it was fine for a week. It’s ski in, ski out and the access is pretty easy (maybe not if you’re a complete beginner but otherwise fine). I used the sauna which is free to use but you have to book it in advance. They also have storage rooms for your skis/boards which is useful. I stayed here with my husband – it’s not an overly romantic place but it was OK for us, it seemed to be an especially good place for families with children.

"All great, highly recommended"

Russell, Southampton

We had a very good week here. The staff were friendly and the food was really good with a lot of choice. Really enjoyed the breakfasts - meats, croissants, scrambled eggs… it was difficult to stop for breakfast to go skiing! They also put on an effort to celebrate as it was Christmas week. The Terra Nova’s not the lap of luxury, but I didn’t expect it to be – it was definitely comfortable enough. We had two rooms which were fine, again not 5* luxury but perfectly warm and comfortable. The location is genuinely ski in / ski out which was great.
