My husband and I booked four nights at Skiway lodge after reading positive reviews on Tripadvisor. It describes itself as a 'boutique hotel', but it is really more of a guest house. We were greeted by the friendly manager who explained that she was the only staff member and that she worked until 6 pm and after that to call her mobile. We checked into room 7 on the 2nd floor. The room was spacious and well decorated, but we were immediately concerned by the proximity to the 'lounge area'. It was also extremely warm in the room and there was no means of controlling the heat. We had to sleep with two windows open and it was snowing outside.
The hotel is well located for walking into town for dinner (there's a bus outside to take you to the slopes) and well decorated, but unfortunately I can't give the hotel a good review because my husband and I did not get one good night's sleep. The building has clearly been converted from a house into a hotel and unfortunately there has been no work done to sound-proof the rooms/walls/doors. We were awoken the first night by guests speaking at a normal volume (not loud) in the lounge area. They were apologetic when we went out and explained that we could hear everything they were saying and they kindly moved their conversation downstairs. On the second night we awoken by guests in the room above us speaking in a reasonable volume in their own room (albeit at about 2 in the morning). Because there is no concierge there was no one for us to call about the noise. We were moved upstairs after complaining the next day, but we could still hear every door open and shut in the building.
One other minor complaint is that although the hotel is clean, the maid service consisted only our trash being emptied.
