We loved how friendly the staff were and the location was great. The only real negative was the wifi which dropped in and out a lot.

Everything was fantastic, including the staff, the cleaners were lovely except the loud music they started playing at 8am. We were honeymooning and trying to have a sleep in after a massive day skiing at mt hutt, to be woken by loud cleaners radio.

Rooms were lovely and warm. Very minor criticisms; TV system had failed that weekend, room needs paint touching up and carpet was stained, but hey, we weren't staying at posh hotel! Staff very friendly and obliging, even went to the trouble of making an Irish coffee even though it wan't usually done. Overall very good value for money.
