    Room for improvement

    The Polish staff is friendly and conscious.Both the breakfast and dinner were of high quality. The problem is the physical structure and and room amenities. The hairdryer had exposed wires in the handle, the doors are misaligned in their hanging, so did not close correctly, the tv remote did not work, nor did the bathroom light. Fortunately, the wonderful staff, phenomenal glacier view and very good food made this a pleasant, one night stay.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The reception staff were welcoming, food was excellent. The room was spacious, however there was some issues. There was a TV bracket on the wall but no TV. There was very limited plug outlets, there was a kettle in the room but no tea or coffee available in the room. The soap dispenser was not properly attached to the wall, mirror was damaged, some tiles had cracks in them. The car park was like a ice skating rink very risky getting from the room to the reception/breakfast.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Bad customer service

    The heater was not turned on upon our arrival at night and in winter. There was no one to welcome us, and the guy at the reception the next day told us he doesn’t even want to work there. The breakfast was ok, basic. I forgot a piece of clothing in the room, and I called the hotel after two hours to ask them to keep it so I could pick it up and I was told that they could not find it. I called several times after that and the call was never picked up again. I have sent several emails requesting to have it back and no one has replied to my emails

  • 2.0.Poor

    Clean, great location and view, noisy guests

    This place is situated in a beautiful area. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The owner is very hospitable. Free coffee and tea at all times. The biggest downfall was the noise. There were horribly noisy guests arriving late hours and some were rowdy that you can hear them laughing throughout the night. Every time one entered or left the rooms the doors slammed. The walls are also thin so you can hear chitter chatter. Unfortunately, the guests were part of a big group staying there and were rowdy. Seems like a free for all since there is technically no staff in the building or a phone in our room to communicate with them. The staff is located in reception and dinning building. We ended up banging on the wall to make them stop. Needless to say we didn’t sleep well. Not even a tv in the room to put on to try to drown the noise. It’s not the owners fault just inconsiderate people. Maybe if they had signs up to be quiet after a certain time.

    Nice location to see the glaciers. The breakfast was good and room was clean. The only issue was the shower floor was not leveled properly, and water ran out of the shower, through the bathroom, through the bedroom, and all the way to the outside wall. Not a big deal for us, just have to notice it and put a towel their to dam the water.
