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.

This package holiday to Hotel Terra Nova, Plagne Centre in La Plagne, France departs Saturday 25th March 2017, for a 7 night stay on a "half board" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

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...
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, but they are all guaranteed to give you a thrill as you will hurtle down at ...

"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

"Not 5* but perfectly adequate"

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.
