Just been reading the reviews for the Ptarmigan Hotel. I have stayed there now for 7 years and have always been very happy with it. Like any hotel occasionally bad things will happen but that's life. The rooms are large / spacious and always clean. On the downside they are sometimes too warm, and most nights I have to drink a few litres of water. That said I have had both standard and superior rooms and they all have their own drawbacks, but nothing to put me off going back again.
The staff are friendly and helpful and the amenities are of a good standard. The food is very good, especially the bar meals.
Location wise, the hotel is well placed for the town and a very short walk for shopping / eating and drinking. All in all I would highly recommend it for a good value ski hotel.
If you want to pick fault, it's always possible to find something in any hotel, even the Springs.
In the words of Arnie, "I'll be back!".
