2/5

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Very nice and helpful English speaking member of staff. However, the room felt very similar to a youth hostel. The room was incredibly cramped and dated. The lighting in bathroom was so dim it was impossible to have a bath with the door closed as would be in darkness. There were polystyrene panels blocking up a wall from our room to next door, which meant we could hear everything that was going on, and vice versa. The breakfast was plentiful and tasty, but we were only able to have it at 8.00 am. If we wanted to lie in, or get up early to leave then this time can cause a problem. This place is miles away from anywhere, with no vending machine. So make sure you go fully stocked. This place is probably more suited to a younger group in 20’s who are there to enjoy skiing season.

超出惊喜的Lodge!

非常惊喜的一次体验。餐厅和客厅沙发区非常复古又cozy,除了房间里的卫生间之外,一楼还有宽敞的大浴室。最棒的是食物,达到了很好的西餐厅水准,食材新鲜而且种类很丰富。老板是个很认真带点严肃的人,能看得出他对自己这份事业要求很高。
