This Hotel is an absolute disgrace.
You have to leave theTour operator bus in the middle of the town, after an ardous night flight & Monster Bus Ride, walk up a massive hill covered in Ice in the middle of a blizzard.
By the time you reach the hotel you find your suitcase thrown in a puddle in the middle of the street!
Greeted by a miserable & inept Tour rep who's only conceren is to sting you for a lift Pass & Skiing equiptment, then by Grumpy hotel receptionist who takes your passports then stings you for £100 before he gives you your keys! ( the chap who looked like Harry from Dumb & Dumber was more usefull )
The rooms are the quite frankly the dirtiest I have ever paid money to reside in. 4 of us were given a "cell" with 2 Prison Style bunk beds in a tiny area, with dirtly blankets & pillows a filthy kitchen, with broken cupboards, filthy impliments & Dust / Crumbs everywhere, and a dirty, mouldy bathroom to complete the set. The guy who inspected our room on departure ( before he gave us our £100 back even had the nerve to say it wasn't the cleanest when we left despite the fact we left it cleaner than it was when we arrived)
Didnt bother to eat or drink in the hotel given the state of the rooms we didnt even risk the hygeine of the kitchen / bar. there are Plenty of decent eateries & Bars in the main town. Skiing conditions were excellent, very few lift ques / breakdowns and the location of the sandy is the only thing going for it
If you are mindful of the fact the Hotel is going to be a dump, and don't mind slumming it for a week then stay here - otherewise don't even contemplate booking here!
