Shower awful, sleep quality and bed not good, bed slats kept falling thru when sleeping, in their defence would be better in winter when they service the winter ski seasons. Awesome views up the mountain and over the lake, about 1 hour and 20 mins via cable car and boat to lerurne which was awesome, it's about a 10 -15 min walk from the cable car, they picked up the luggage which was good thou. Heater in rooms but no air on, games room was cool, hearing the cow bells was awesome Andre rather relaxing. Dinner was good, breakfast was not, service was good and free wifi was nice however only had a range of about 7 meters from reception and I

They were so helpful, the view was amazing but our rooms were quite outdated and lacking features

The hotel is a bit difficult to get to, as you need to take a cable car or train to get up, but that just adds to the charm! The hotel overlooks some of the most gorgeous mountain views in the area, the staff is polite and helpful, and there are several trails through the mountains right out in front of the hotel. We stayed in a brand new room (apparently we were the first people to ever stay in it!) which was extremely spacious and clean. The bathroom was also decently sized. The far wall was made up entirely of windows, so we had great views of the mountains. The only complaint I have is the walls are very thin and the floors are very squeaky- you hear it loud and clear when someone is talking at a normal volume next door, or when someone is walking by the hall. Some people in our group complained about the noise from the cowbells 24 hours a day, but I loved the cowbells and thought it made the area that much more unique. I would absolutely recommend this place.
