more like a backpackers

Pros: it was warm.
Cons: update everything
Location: a short walk to the village
the place was pretty old and rundown, the room was small, the shower was dangerous, there was no power point in the bathroom, towels were thin, two hangers only in the cupboard, the breakfast was minimal, and for this price I would expect a lot more.

We think you must be talking about a different venue or you expectations are of 5 star hotels in the major cities. Duck Inn has been build 5 years ago, so your statement it totally wrong. For comparison next time please stay at Alpine Retreat, Enzian Hotel,or the Chalet which are old.

I don’t want to say how good the Duck Inn is because I want it all for myself. A great place to stay if you have kids. It’s quiet. The road out front is adead end so no busy traffic. The ski shop can kit you out with EVERYTHING so just arrive with what you have on your back. Walk out the door and tuen left, it’s Only 50m from the free bus to the Village or Ski School, turn right and your at a make your own toboggin track.

The Duck Inn was great for our two day visit. Very quiet at night. Staff were super friendly. Breakfast was simple but good. Room did sometimes get too warm but you can adjust the radiator. Shuttle bus right across the road.

Good location

Pros: Location was good. Ski hire handy on premises.
Cons: The included breakfast was very most basic and you had to buy coffee or herbal teas. No Vegetarian options on the menu! We ate elsewhere. Fridge!
Location: Location was only 10 mins straight to the Village and right near a shuttle stop.
The room was nice but tiny …. no place for suitcase …. could barely walk around the bed. Otherwise fine - though the toilet seat came off, and no fridge for the room or top ups offered of tea or coffee. Location was good.

We are glad that you found the location and ski hire on premises handy. It is disappointing that you did not found the luggage storage space in the cupboard. It is in the lower section. Fridge is available on request - all you have to do is ask. Same for top ups and anything else.
