My partner and I lived there for a snow season and had the most horrible time. The owners were intrusive, rude, arrogant and just all round horrible people. We were not allowed to use the heaters to much, it was cold, the internet hardly worked, and when you complained we were told to take a hike basically. We all got so fed up that a group of us actually moved out towards the end of the season. The rooms were tiny, horribly dirty when we arrived, and just all and all a horrible place to live. I would NEVER EVER recommend this place to anyone, let alone even consider staying there again.
