The retreat is in areally good spot, just of the main highway, but within walking distance of all the main attractions and within easy driving distance of walk to the foot of the glacier. We booked a two bedroom tree house, but were upgraded to a three bedroom. As it was very cold at night in Sept, we found it extremely difficult to keep the rooms warm. Top tip: keep all doors closed and it helps. however we all slept well and wished we had time to stay longer.
The staff are friendly and knowlegable about excursions available in the area. If you are travelling then you can purchase sachets of washing powder from reception, although there is a small supermarket in the town. There are also some decent reseraunts in town as well.
