Second time to Hauts de Toviere - last time 6 years ago. Accommodation is fine, maybe we had a better room than most, I don't know, but it was plenty big enough and clean, warm, plenty of storage and plenty of hot water etc.
Food was the usual very high standard at Mark Warner, plenty of wine and the staff were very good. Shame there was no hosting, but that is no fault of Mark Warner.
Have now stayed in several MW chalets and this was no better or worse than most. Boot room could be a bit bigger, but you put your boots on/off in the reception and it's then only a 20m walk to where you can ski to the lift.
The buses and free and regular if you want to go anywhere else and included in your 6 day lift pass is access to the great pool/leisure centre in town - well worth a visit.
All in all, Tignes is a great spot for access to the whole Espace Killy. Can't say whether Hauts de Toviere is better or worse than the Aiguille Percee, we haven't been there, but would have no issue in coming back.

Mark Warner staff were great from arrival at Grenoble to our departure. Free snack on plane was very nice and flying BA was great. Hauts de Tauvier staff were very friendly and helpful all week. Our kids loved kids club. Food at Hauts de Tovier is excellent especially soup and cakes in the afternoon. Even the wine was very drinkable which is not our experience in competitors ski chalets. Chalet is very tired though and needs a refresh. Social area next to bar is too small for the size of the chalet. Boot room is awful and the broken steps down from boot room to the street are lethal. Tignes le Lavachet is not a good location for families. All the ski schools start in Le Lac or Val Claret and its a pain to have to get a bus there by 9am every day. Route from Chalet to the bus stop was sheet ice - not nice when carrying skis and wearing ski boots. Also was a pain to have to get a bus to the ski hire shop on arrival when you are tired. It was very disappointing that ski hosting was cancelled early in the week due to French legal action on another ski operator (This could have been anticipated as Crystal had to cancel theirs last year due to same reason) We had a good holiday because the weather and food was so great but we would never return to Hauts de Tovier because of the standard and location of the Chalet.

Just returned from a week at the Chalet Hotel Hauts de Toviere. The accomodation was ok if unspectacular, but the staff were magnificent and a credit to Mark Warner. I made use of the Ski Hosting service every day and Jess and Tim, the Hosts, were fantastic. The childcare was also great and nothing was too much trouble for the any of the team. All in all, I would highly recommend a holiday here, the hotel is in a great location - and the experience was helped by a heap of fresh snow to enjoy every day! Finally, would also mention that the other guests helped make the holiday so enjoyable. I travelled with my Son and everyone was very friendly and easy going - guess that aspect is the luck of the draw, but it was appreciated anyway.

First time we had done a Mark Warner holiday and was very impressed.
The staff were all great: astonishingly friendly & helpful; the food was lovely; and we were surprised how pleasant it was to be in with other people & to make new friends & ski-buddies.
Will do one again

A holiday made by the staff of the Hauts de Toviere. Fantastic food and a wonderful resort, where live bands and a good night were never hard to find. Although the room was basic, it was clean and comfortable. The hotel was well situated, with good access to a number of lifts.
