The bathrooms in the rooms were a little dated. In order to flush the toilet you had to hold down the handle for a while. Great location for skiing.

10/10 Exceptional

We stayed there for 2 nights and went skiing for 2 days. The Hotel itself is old, but clean. We could walk from our room to the ski slop within 2 minutes. The location is excellent and the convenience and access to the ski slops / lifts is the best. We had two kids with us and for them this ski resort was the best. Kids loved the pool too. Breakfast buffet is simple but good. Great pancakes! We will be back!
