This is our third trip to Levi but our first stay at this hotel. On arrival, our holiday rep gave us our keys. The room was smaller than in the previous hotel we had stayed but perfectly adequate. We had asked for a balcony which came with a full size bath. The decoration was fine, although there was a very large cupboard for 2 cups and saucers, 2 plates and a plate containing some tea, coffee and sugar. Under this there was a fridge with a key to lock it! Very strange but fine.
We were a bit concerned as we did not have a drying closet but we needn't have worried as all our skiing gear dried out overnight.
The walk to the pistes was a lot quicker than we expected which was a bonus when walking in ski boots. There is also a room on the ground floor to put your ski gear in every day. You get the key from the reception and we kept ours all week although we found out later that other people handed theirs in every day. I don't think it matters which option you choose.
The restaurant is very, very pretty, with twinkling lights on the ceiling and lovely lighting throughout. Although I was a bit disappointed with the food (I am a VERY fussy eater), my husband raved about the porridge, beef brisket and reindeer meat. I had previously read that the tables were all joined together as several very long tables. However, we found most tables were set for 4 people and were separate from other tables. I'm guessing that the hotel has listened to previous comments which shows they will change things where possible.
Overall, I think this was a great place to stay and would recommend it to anyone.
Finally, I have read a lot of the comments when people where situated away from the main building. However, this was the case at the previous hotel we stayed at and we actually enjoyed the walk. You can determine how cold it is and how well to wrap up for the day ahead.
The hotel itself has a lovely friendly atmosphere
