The hotel was very good. There was only one slight problem when we arrived (I can’t remember exactly, I think the shower wasn’t quite in position or something similar), anyway it was fixed the next day so I was happy with how quickly they dealt with it. It was all very good, the service and the food. Overall ... + more

The Vancouver was OK, not brilliant but alright. The food and restaurant were quite nice but for the money we had paid the room was fairly basic. The heating and temperature were no good, being stuck on all the time made the room like a sauna… It was -10 to -20 degrees outside and we had the door open. We did ... + more

The food was excellent, first class. It was quite limited but it was all very well done and I’m sure that if you wanted something different, they’d have made it. They also did a 5-6 course dinner to celebrate New Year’s Eve. We had to keep asking them to light the fire – we Brits like a nice fireplace – ... + more

I thought the hotel was really good for what we paid. It was let down a bit by the restaurant... the food was good in the evenings, they prepared quite a reasonable choice of good quality dishes and if you didn’t like something, they’d happily knock you something up like a burger or even a steak. The main pro... + more

We stayed in Hotel Vancouver on half-board basis. Is located in a quiet location in Plagne Soleil. The food was ok, good variety throughout the week for dinner, however breakfast is limited and not restocked very frequently. Our room was way too hot, uncomfortable, think sauna, as heater was stuck on. We had to... + more

This package holiday to Hotel Vancouver in La Plagne, France departs Saturday 7th January 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 ...

"One of the best hotels we’ve stayed in"

Nick Crook, Monmouthshire
4/ out of 5
The hotel was very good. There was only one slight problem when we arrived (I can’t remember exactly, I think the shower wasn’t quite in position or something similar), anyway it was fixed the next day so I was happy with how quickly they dealt with it. It was all very good, the service and the food. Overall it was one of the best hotels we’ve stayed in. We were very pleased with it. There is a pool – it’s ok for a hotel pool, we went in it once. My wife is a serious swimmer so it wasn’t really what she’s used to. The position of the hotel is very good, you can go straight out onto the slopes. Lots of the blues in that area have red sections, and the piste outside the hotel is a blue but it does have a tricky section immediately after you get onto it. It drops straight off, we saw some total beginners were stuck there on the first day. It’s a long way poling to get back to as well, but you can ski into the village instead and then walk over the road and you’re at the hotel. If it wasn’t for the difficulty of that first section of piste outside of the hotel then I would give the hotel a 5/5. I would recommend the hotel for anyone, it’s general purpose and not particularly family orientated or especially suited to a particular kind of person. It’s in a quiet location in Plagne Soleil, more on the piste than in the town, so the position isn’t so great for party animals. We come to ski though so it was fine for us.

"OK, room too hot and basic"

The Vancouver was OK, not brilliant but alright. The food and restaurant were quite nice but for the money we had paid the room was fairly basic. The heating and temperature were no good, being stuck on all the time made the room like a sauna… It was -10 to -20 degrees outside and we had the door open. We did raise it early on and they said they’d look into it, but they didn’t. The location was fine for Plagne Soleil but overall for the money we paid we were a little let down.

"Brilliant week, thoroughly enjoyed it!"

The food was excellent, first class. It was quite limited but it was all very well done and I’m sure that if you wanted something different, they’d have made it. They also did a 5-6 course dinner to celebrate New Year’s Eve. We had to keep asking them to light the fire – we Brits like a nice fireplace – but they only ended up doing it every other night. There was a nice spa; the only gripe was that they did allow kids which I suppose is to be expected, maybe they could limit the time? The positioning was really good. Provided the conditions were right there was doorstep skiing, and we were fortunate to have good conditions! If you weren’t skiing out, it was only a short walk across the road.

"Really good value hotel"

I thought the hotel was really good for what we paid. It was let down a bit by the restaurant... the food was good in the evenings, they prepared quite a reasonable choice of good quality dishes and if you didn’t like something, they’d happily knock you something up like a burger or even a steak. The main problem was the breakfasts which were appalling, you go in and they say you’ve got hot options like scrambled eggs but it turns out the scrambled eggs have been sitting there for 3 hours which wasn’t very pleasant. I don’t think the boot room was particularly heated but it was OK. The hotel is “ski out” but it’s quite difficult to get out – you had quite a walk through an underground car park to get to the actual “ski out” part... having to go out the hotel, down to and across the underground car park in ski boots and up and out a door and through the exit onto the piste. From the skiing out perspective, I wouldn’t recommend the hotel to beginners. You wouldn’t be able to do it if you were a complete beginner as it’s a fairly steep slope down the hill to the ski lifts. My wife struggled a bit and she can cope with most blue runs, if you were a competent red run skier you’d be fine.

"Hotel Vancouver - ok but nothing special"

We stayed in Hotel Vancouver on half-board basis. Is located in a quiet location in Plagne Soleil. The food was ok, good variety throughout the week for dinner, however breakfast is limited and not restocked very frequently. Our room was way too hot, uncomfortable, think sauna, as heater was stuck on. We had to leave balcony door open at night. Despite asking hotel mgt to fix it, nothing was done. Apparently central boiler downstairs was on a fixed temperature as well. Boot room downstairs is not heated and boots remain cold/wet overnight. Despite Sat TV advertised, only one English channel, a news channel predominantly focussed on Asia. At least the wifi worked. Overall, its an ok hotel but we won't be going back there.
