This gets Golden Chain’s Gold rating so decor and fittings in the large unit were nice, but we found a serious shortage of cooking equipment (and no teapot!). Unit was large and comfortable but with a strange warning that if you ran out of hot water it would take two hours to reheat so, fearing the worst, we showered quickly although didn’t encounter problems. After a few minutes use of the hairdryer the lights started to dim. We could only assume this was due to some weird green power policy they had. Units are very new in nice, if rather barren, grounds. However our view towards the mountains was marred by a large fence screening the adjacent (rather scruffy) property. Lack of net curtains on the very large window made it necessary to draw the curtains to protect one’s modesty. Quiet location but a fair step to the village with its eateries and shop.
