- "Normally I wouldn't look at a 2 star hotel but take no notice. The staff are friendly the food is excellent and the location could not be better - 10 steps to the ski lift and the same to the town - rooms are basic and a bit small but you're not really in them. We will definitely be going back." - Trip Advisor
