I'm sure this place is buzzing in the winter with skiers (there is a bar onsite) but when we visited in autumn it was a really relaxed place that ticked all the boxes for our family. The 5 bedder was great, the bathroom massive, and with the downstairs kitchen/lounge area and another lounge on the first floor, we had everything we needed to both be with others and away. Breakfast was a little skinny, but overall it was an outstanding venue, just wish we would have stayed longer so we could explore more.
