3rd time we've stopped in this hotel, each time as part of a large group of Ford Cortina enthusiasts making a trip to the car's namesake. The hotel is very comfortable with great views of the surrounding mountains. It's only a 5 minute walk to the centre and restaurants. Also only a 5 or 10 min walk to the cable cars (depending which mountain you want to go up).
This time we went round the back of the hotel to the Olympic centre to get the 3 cable cars up to 3000 metres for breath taking views and sun bathing high in the mountains.
The rooms do seem quite varied, some had large almost suites, others had smaller (but still comfortable) rooms. Most rooms seem to have balconies and some have whirl pool baths.
Breakfast is served on lower ground floor and is a basic continental breakfast, ok but nothing to shout about.
It's what you'd expect from a 4 start hotel in a lovely resort. If you take the road train round the village take the 35 minute trip it's definitely an experience, going off road as well as round the town.
For me our stay this time was slightly spoilt by having a room overlooking the main road, it wasn't overly noisy but not as nice as being on the side of the hotel
