Enjoying the spa, suffering from no elevator
The place is quiet, there is parking infront of the hotel for free, the service is welcoming and the spa is great (best thing in the hotel). However, the rooms are small and everything looks old. Moreover, the breakfast is basic and there is no elevator to the rooms!

10/10 Exceptional

Above and beyond.
Staff are very helpful. I had car trouble and the staff went out of their way to help. Issue solved - need that kind of help when there are no local garages The buffets are very good and there is lots of food! I needed a quite place with a good suana and local skiing. My room warm and comfortable. Other than the fact the red wine was too warm - great spot, Not a solo spot - but I needed the downtime - good family place.
