“This place is the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Our service was excellent and the food was great. We especially appreciated the children's buffet for our 10 year-old and the dessert buffet for us all. Everyone was very happy with our dining experience.

“daily breakfast !! come hungry !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Yes, get up early enough to eat as much as you can (terrific coffee!) and then pack a granola bar snack for optimum ski time on the slopes. If you cannot eat a lot- then just go to the Castle Pantry for a delicious oatmeal, yogurt and coffee and head off to the slopes. We did not purchase the breakfast on the meal plan to give us maximum flexibility ...that was a good idea..as late-rising teenagers sometimes cannot eat their full of a $29.00 breakfasts.

“Best Brunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Have only eaten here for Brunch. Done that a few times as it is so good! Go there hungry, do not have breakfast! Amazing selection of food, you can go up as many times as you like. They will make you a fresh omlette, and are always re-stocking the impressive selection of food. We had two vegetarians in our party, and they had no trouble finding a good choice.
Whenever we have visitors coming over from the UK, we like to take them here to create that WOW factor!
