The staff are amazing. So friendly. Location is easy walking distance to everywhere. A bit dated in the family room we had. We were there to ski, not stay indoors, so it didn’t matter.

Everything was fantastic, including the staff, the cleaners were lovely except the loud music they started playing at 8am. We were honeymooning and trying to have a sleep in after a massive day skiing at mt hutt, to be woken by loud cleaners radio.
