Seperate loungue with 2 sofa beds, dining table, kitchen and another balcony. It became the perfect base for... More

3 of us spent a week here at the end of March for a Ski/Snowboarding Music Festival called Snowboxx. Upon arrival we checked in with no hassle, however were required to pay a €100 per person deposit to cover any damage caused to the room. First impression were that the room was very small, with only one small room with... More

Location is excellent, next to the ice rink and swimming pool. As for the resort .. Skiing is fabulous and suitable for a group of 23 with different levels... More

Booked for a week through Neilson and for the price we paid my expectations were very low. The reception area had old food and litter with no sign of a cleaner and the steps to the entrance were decorated with someone's abandoned dirty laundry. The girl on check in was helpful and efficient and whilst the apartment stank of stale... More

New year 2014/2015 - Was not impressed with the hotel before we even got there. I booked through booking.com for myself and two friends. The first half of the payment was taken straight away and we expected the second half to be taken 1 month before our arrival. 1 month before our holiday we had an email to say they... More

The hotel location is really convenient and central, close to the shops and delicious restaurants. The rooms/apartments are small: we had an apartment for 4 people and two of us were in the sitting room. We had a great stay overall though.

Very pleased as was a very last minute booking. Staff helpful, clean room and did the job. Bit of a push and shove on the bus on the morning though to get to ski school! Would have been great to have two strawberry buses turning up at peak times.
