My boyfriend and I stayed in Martina Breakfast Lodge for 6 nights over the New Year period. Initially the deciding factor for us booking the room was the reasonable price (compared with many other very overpriced places in the region). It turned out however that great value was not the only thing this lovely B & B had to offer.
The Lodge is situated very close to the shuttle bus which goes directly to the nearby Seiser Alm, and only a 5 minute walk to the centre of the village. Being first time snowboarders, this became very important as our bruises made walking pretty painful! There are also two supermarkets very nearby. Storage for boots/boards and skis is also provided.
The room was spacious and warm, with a lovely huge window and balcony and good blackout curtains for a couple of nice lie-ins! It was always kept clean and tidy by the friendly room maids and they had our beds made daily by the time we returned from breakfast - in a range of cheerful duvet sculptures!
Breakfasts were an enjoyable and filling affair with a range of tasty mueslis, cereals, juice, tea, coffee, meats, cheeses, pastries and breads on offer. The service and hospitality from Doris was brilliant.
A tough day on the slopes was always rewarded with a dip in the decent sized pool and a good sweat in the sauna before dinner. We ate out most nights but what impressed me was the thoughtful provision of crockery and cutlery for those who wanted to get something from the supermarket or grab a takeaway and eat in.
The communication from Sara at reception was friendly and prompt throughout booking, and though we were meant to swap rooms half way, she arranged for us to stay in the same room throughout without us having to ask. She was also very helpful in recommending restaurants and working out our bus and train times for our journey back.
An example of how hospitality should be: less on the frills and more on quality service.
Get one with a balcony - especially in summer!
