We booked a large 6 bedroom apartment advertised as sleeping 12 - 14 and there were 12 of us. Apartment is 3 small apartments joined into one. Reasonably furnished and equipped - 3 shower rooms and a bathroom, 2 separate toilets. Kitchen fairly good, but cooker very slow. Good location, close to piste and beside the Cairn gondola, for return home.
In joining up 3 apartments, 2 main double bedrooms back onto old doors, and only protection from corridor noise is wood panelling behind the bed - no evidence of sound-proofing. We were there for New Year and our neighbours opposite partied noisily every night, with much coming and going of loud people on the corridor. Our only solution for sleep was ear plugs. No windows in 4 of the 6 bedrooms, which were overheated and stuffy - add that to the noise and have a recipe for insomnia. Apartment is on 6th floor, with 2 lifts in the building. One lift stopped working after 2 days, the second broke down on New Year's Eve and not repaired for 2 days, then only one repaired and lift alarm constantly going off. All attempts to contact the owner, owners' syndicate and the agent went unanswered. Very disappointing apartment - not recommended.
