Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great hotel for skiing!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Perfect stay for a ski trip. The bus that takes you to the mountains stops right outside. The hotel also features two hot tubs and two saunas. They were never overcrowded. I'll definitely stay again.
