Reception was friendly, room was well appointed & very clean with good options of tea/coffee/etc. Bed was quite "springy" but ok, shower was the only issue as hard to get the heat correct, the nozzle didn't offer much spray and the floor was extremely slippery, although they did have a sign warning of this.

Beautiful place for families, with pool, spa, trout stream, mini golf and great location. The staff were welcoming and accommodating with the changes with our reservation plans, we decided to stay longer because it was so relaxing. We will definitely come back, and bring our family and friends.

Great place. Convenient location to Skyline gondola and luge. We were allowed to stay with our small dog. The spa pool in the room was pretty good. The pool itself was nice. Very quiet. Lovely staff. There's a mini gold course on the property and a games room with a ping pong table. Great amenities. Thanks!
