This place is old, dated and it shows. 7 of us stayed in an 8 bed apartment in January during the ski season.
POOR QUALITY 'expensive' FURNITURE
In the living room space were two bed settees made from 'solid oak'. These were of such poor quality that they buckled when we simply sat on them on 3 separate occasions (yes they replaced one and then that broke!) throughout our stay. We were made to pay in excess of £300 to replace the first one (this astronomical figure itself was reined in from £700 initially banded by the hotel hierarchy) we then refused to pay anything further. At least 1 of the other oak chair also gave way during our stay and so midway through the week we resorted to sitting on the floor to avoid any further calamities.
Noise from each of the rooms is easily heard and disturbingly clear.
WiFi can be accessed from each room or apartment with log on credentials provided by reception however each room is only allocated a code to be used for one device (for a room of 7?!) and additional devices cost 6Euros/ day.
We were provided with 1 towel each for a 7 night stay and told it would cost $7Euro each for a fresh towel. Scandalous.
This place is the RyanAir of the hotel trade and simply would not exist were it not for it's central location. Cheaply furnished accommodation & terrible service.
