Me and my family had a great time in this hotel. The hotel is a little bit dated but the room was clean and cozy. The food was fine and the staff was friendly. But our ski instructor was just amazing! A must try!

They have recently stopped people from smoking... More

The rooms are basic but clean, as is the bathroom. We ate breakfast every morning but went out for tea at night time. We did eat in... More
