Just took our three teenagers to the GC, had a great sized apartment with cooking facilities. The views were spectacular and the location was easy for the kids to catch a tram or walk to town. Renovations have obviously taken place but they never bothered us at all. The reception ladies were friendly and helpful, would definitely recommend this place.
