The first impression of the ski resort is good, but not great. Although the overall building is old, but the management has maintain it well.
We stayed in the deluxe room and its very spacious and clean. Since we were visiting during the spring time, the weather is kinda chilly and no air-conditioning needed for the entire day and night. The room is also comes with complimentary wifi and the signal is strong. Our room is not worn out as other reviewers mentioned, or perhaps it's just our luck to have a better room? The bathroom comes with a clean bathtub and the hot shower works perfectly, albeit the water pressure is a little too low, but no issues for us.
The breakfast is good, with selections of cereals, bread rolls, choices of fruits and eggs. The restaurant itself was converted from the shooting location of the infamous Korean drama Winter Sonata, and the restaurant ceiling is low and the dining area is not very spacious. Therefore, to avoid the huge crowd and noise, it's better for one to go for breakfast before 8am, where the big tour group of people usually comes in after 8am.
The location of the resort is really strategic as the ski field is just behind the hotel. The snow will build up the whole area during winter, and the area will converted into a beautiful golf course during other seasons of the year.
There's limited restaurant around the resort area. Nevertheless, there's a convenient shop located next to the hotel lobby.
Generally, I enjoyed staying at the resort and will come back again for ski in the future.
