“Cheap and cheerful, delightfully quirky”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

This is one of those reviews that I question the wisdom of writing as I don't want to make the place so well know that it's impossible to get a room in future! My travelling companion and I ended up at this place as our booking for an alternative venue with booking.com was not honoured. The price of around £28 per night for a single room including breakfast didn't leave us expecting too much and our initial viewing of the property confirmed as much - from the outside a very typical Alpine chalet type structure, inside stepping back into an Ikea 1970's time warp - a very old and warn looking place. The rooms were not en suite but mine had a sink with running hot water only, and in place of a window I had a velux with no blind. My bed sagged so much it looked like a hammock, and even though I'm a fairly diminutive 5'7" it was not quite long enough for me. HOWEVER after a couple of nights here we were won over by the charms of our hosts. Although they spoke virtually no English they were just as friendly and hospitable as can be. Also, on closer examination, although the place was very tired and much lived in, it became apparent it was also very much loved. Although things were showing signs of wear everything was completely spotless. Our bedding and towels were replaced on a daily basis. When we were unable to stay for breakfast due to 4am starts for photographic expeditions the owner/chef insisted on preparing us a vacuum packed goody bag of bread, cheese, ham, chocolate bars and fruit. Overall I would say it is impossible not to love this place, as was evidenced by the multitude of other guests who all appeared to be having a superb time. And at £28 a night including breakfast how could anyone argue? Go by all means...but don't tell too many people!

Room Tip: Smallest room (6) has only hot running water
