Went the first week of march ski-ing for the first time so didnt know what to expect. The walk up to the gondala was only 15 mins and the area was very pretty. We did go towards end of season so hardly much snow, so when it did snow once over night it was very exciting!
The hotel is basic which is fine, with the rads on full blast, especially in the evening, so did have to sleep with the balcony door open every night. Food was ok first 2 nights but then got quite bad. spring rolls on the menu was a joke- slice of ham rolled with coleslaw in the middle( don't even know if it was coleslaw) and you got 3 of those. when asked if we can have something else the waiter said no. The main course came and it was a very bloody,fatty pork!when asked to cook it longer we were told "this is how we eat it". Right ok then.
The last night we did treat our selves to pizzeria round corner which was fab.
The bar man was lovely in the hotel and the rest of the staff just kept themselves to themselves. When checking out we have a "bar bill" we had to pay which in fact was not ours, just shows you should pay as you go like we did otherwise might get ripped off!
We went with some mates which was brill, so to go with other people is good,lovely location,fine hotel but just maybe just go bed and breakfast next time?
Treated our selves at the spa place 15 min taxi drive away, definatly worth a visit!
