We stayed here for 2 nights/3 days in an area which isn't abundant with choice, or towns - just villages - so this is a very good hotel. We liked the location; only a 40min transfer from Ivaolo Airport, the pool was excellent - large interesting pool park with lazy swim, wave machine, slides, jacuzzi - ideal for inside activities for children when its -20 outside!
Our room was adequate, double with double sofa bed, enough room for everything and a clean bathroom.
On our first day the hotel had a backlog of residents as snow had fallen in the south west of England so airports had ground to a halt! So we ate out at a local restaurant which was lovely. The breakfasts were hearty, plentiful, fresh and leisurely. We had a gala dinner on the second night in a large function room which was really far too big for the amount of people, but the buffet food was fine and ideal for the children if they didn't like something they could choose something else. There was a nice looking restaurant and also a good bar with an Irish singer who was actually quite good.
The location of the hotel was very central in the village. There is a good supermarket a 10minute walk up the road, turn right out of the hotel, which sells all sorts!
It is incredibly quiet outside the hotel in the village, as its always dark and very very cold so nobody walks around. The lighting in the streets, with the snow and ice, is magical. There are sledges all around the village which you can help yourself to for a play with the children.
