Again, like other reviews we both thoroughly enjoyed our four nights at this hotel.
We stayed in the log cabins positioned slightly above the hotel which was centrally located for our trips and just a minute walk to the hotel for our meals and trips. They were tremendous, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen and sitting area, lovely and clean and very warm it has also a dryer for any wet clothes t.v and a sauna area.
Hotel served food of a very good standard, I am very picky but ate very well each day. You can look out over the ski slopes while having your meal. There is a bar area which caters for most drinks, nice and quiet. The hotel also has an adequate swimming pool and provides free of charge all in one thermal suits, hats and gloves for your excursions. They also hire snow shoes and toboggan's for a small fee.
All of the staff here are really friendly and provide an excellent service, cannot fault their commitment and enthusiasm, it makes that big difference. We went on excursions each day which were safely supervised, of an adequate duration and thoroughly enjoyable. The transfers from hotel to airport and also the trips were also very comfortable and professionally organised.
Would definitely return and recommend to others, tremendous trip and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves
