We stayed last winter for a long weekend, taking our 2 children (age 11 & 7) to the snow for the first time. I wasn't sure about staying here because I have pretty high standards and I hadn't read super reviews on tripadvisor. However I was blown away by the fantastic friendly service and warm, cosy, clean and comfortable accomodation. It was an excellent location with only a short easy walk to the quad chair & other lifts. If snow cover is good (which it was when we were there in July) you can ski literally from the front door of the lodge straight to the lifts. As it was our kids first time we basically hung out in front and back of the lodge as there was plenty of snow for them to play in and sled on.
Not having to drive to the snow each day meant we could go back to our room to change and make a cuppa if we were cold and wet. There was no fridge in our room but to keep our drinks cold we simply put them outside our window! The kids thought that was great fun!
We had all our breakfasts and dinners at the Lodge and the food was hearty, delicious and huge servings.
Our room had a great big TV and there was also a huge flatscreen in the communal lounge area, that was very pleasant for lounging about chatting to people in front of the cosy fireplace.There was a lovely big balcony to step outside when the sun was coming up to have my cuppa and see the sun glinting on the snow. I felt like I was in the Alps.
Downstairs there's a cute little bar with a pool table and great ambiance. We absolutely loved our time there and will be back again this year.
