I always get nervous when I book a hotel and then see bad reviews. Someone even said, "as much charm as a Best Western," so I was pleasantly surprised when we walked in the lobby and there was a great spa smell and a cozy fire going.
Our room was on the 2nd floor and was an Executive Suite. It was spacious, updated and very clean--and I am very picky about shabby things. I heard from a guest that the 2nd floor is the dog floor--but our room did not smell like dog or look like dog--it has a strong freshener scent when we first arrived but after opening the window for a few hours it was gone. Avoid this floor if you don't like dogs--we did here a few yaps throughout our stay. Our room just faced a bunch of trees--so no view--just the hot tub.
Location is great and there is a grocery store across the street which is convenient and an inexpensive pasta place with great soups for lunch. The shuttle service was great and they were very nice. We traveled with our 5 yr old so being close to the village to walk around was key.
Tips: make restaurant reservations. Also, there an affordable and good sushi place across from the grocery store. The Bavarian restaurant is overpriced. There was a very nice and cheaper spa around the corner and down the street.
The staff was fine and pleasant. They could have been a little more helpful. When I was struggling to open the door to the locker rooms to store my snowboard and skis and had my daughter there--they could have helped--as they clearly saw me. They also weren't really knowledgeable about things to do--when we asked about Tubing they really had no idea.
All in all a very pleasant stay (we also got engaged here--so I have an extra fondness)
