The rooms at Kamanga are small and spartan, but provide just enough comfort for a week's skiing holiday when you are going to be out of the chalet for 8 hours a day and using the room mainly just for sleeping. If you wanted to spend more time indoors, the lack of facilities could be frustrating.
It's definitely worth paying the small supplement for a larger room on the south side with a couch, balcony, and a better view.
Our bathroom and shower were fine, the lounge downstairs was comfy and airy even if there was nothing to do in there, and the ski and boot storage facilities were basic but adequate.
If Dee is still doing the cooking, the food provided will be quite good.
Although there is nothing 5-star about the Kamanga, it's a decent standard of basic accommodation with no shocking shortcomings. The main drawback is still its location uphill from the gondola station, which provides a testing aerobic workout for any athlete carrying skis, poles and boots back to base every evening.
