Stayed here as a couple for one week at the end of June. The holiday got off to bad start as Thomson holidays & Birmingham airport managed to lose our luggage. Harrumph! However the warm welcome we received from Mrs Pitscheider soon made us forget our problems, her son Manny even offered to lend us waterproofs should the weather turn.
The hotel is small with just 25 rooms, and is located in the town centre, a short walk from bus stops, cable car stations, and local shops and bars.
Our room was a good size and had a large balcony that caught the afternoon and evening sun. It faced the road and as such had some road noise but this did not bother us unduly. The mountain stream opposite gave more noise than the passing traffic. The room was very comfortable, with plenty of storage, and a newly refitted bathroom that was so clean it shone. No fridge or drinks facilities in the room, but an excellent TV, hairdryer & plenty of hot water.
Breakfast was buffet style, and we had more than enough to eat, and we were greeted each afternoon with tea and cake of the day following a hard day's walking.
Evening meal consisted of 5 courses of 2 choices, but they would always cook something else if you didn't like what was on offer. The standard of cuisine was very high. 0.5 L carafe of excellent house red was 6 euros a night. No need to buy more expensive wines.
There was a lovely wellness centre in the basement, but we didn't use it as the weather was lovely and sunny during our stay. The only thing lacking in the hotel was a sitting out or garden area, but we were quite happy with our balcony, and the lovely sun chairs that were upgraded half way through our holiday, thanks Mrs P!
All in all, a memorable stay, I would heartily recommend this hotel and resort for its comfortable standards, the warm welcome, and the fantastic well organised walking nearby. We would definitely return.
