Hotel was spotless, rooms were cleaned every day. The manager seemed a little reserved at first but offer a few words of thanks and see what happens.
The restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful. Ok the food may not be to everybody’s taste, it’s pretty much local cuisine but we always found something nice to eat. If in doubt ask and the staff will help you choose something you like. We only eat out once and that was a pre-planned trip to Surf for some nice steaks.
It is a bit of a hike up to the gondola but there is a free bus every 15 minutes with room for skies and boards so no problem!
There were some nice little touches like the cost of safety deposit keys and ski storage keys were fully refundable and ‘pick-nik’ breakfasts were prepared for our last ‘early’ morning departure.
Ok if I had to be picky, on the downside, the plumbing is a bit noisy if you are looking for a lie in, a separate bar and games room would have been nice at times and the kids were not impressed by the lack of Wi-Fi. Oh, and it was a bit too warm for us, we has to open the patio doors to balance the temperature, but so what, this is a ski hotel – we didn’t pay for the Ritz !!!
So all in all, I would recommend this hotel, it’s a bargain and I would I go back. Thanks to all for a great time.
