Overall score and ratings

4/10 Fair

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.
