A step back in time to the set of the 70's soap? The decor would make you think so. Luckly the rest of the experience wasn't so 'wobbly', The food was simple but well cooked with a hearty breakfast. The whole hotel was clean and comforable. The staff were helpful and the service was good. The sound proofing between the... More

We had our small dog and walked in the surrounding hills. Great place to go if you ski, there is ski rental and ski lessons available in hotel. We... More

if first impressions count then this hotel should take a good look at its kerb appeal. The place is dingy needs investment not a place i would stay , lasted all of 20 mins before we handed the keys in and left. We will not be back.

Our room faced the road but we never heard any traffic. There was a good choice on the menu and the food was served piping hot. It was... More

The rooms are clean and comfortable and although my room faced towards the road I did not hear the traffic. The food was very good and you could not fault the staff.... More
