No prior warning of dinner orders to be made before 5:30 as the kitchen and bar closed at 6pm. Dinner menu looked nothing like the suggested items on the website (ribs, Tasmanian Trout) and we were told the entire pizza menu was unavailable. Unfortunately the chalet was not well kept- hairs through the bathroom and in shower, glasses and coffee cups with finger and lip marks. It was a disappointment stay and certainly not what was described according to the website. We called the day before to book a table for dinner but the lady explained that was not required. A heads up that the last orders by 5:30pm would have sufficed.

Needs an update. Don’t seem to understand the concept of hospitality. Request for clean towels halfway through a four day stay caused much consternation. Any request greeted with a list of problems.

Confusing at entry - unclear where to go Clean, nice, all facilities etc. Service in Restaurant appalling - lack of training, no service mentality. Probably due to limited locally available trained staff, but 5 minutes training would make an improvement. Simple meals, fresh and well cooked, but waited for 30mins after ordering.
