Property has been recently renovated after a fire and the rooms and bathrooms have been done beautifully and to a high standard. To make it even friendly for those on a l ski holiday (which we were along with the majority of the other guests staying at the time) a dedicated storage or drying room for skis and boots would be great to have. The shared kitchenette was great for breakfasts and preparing lunch each day, only thing I would suggest is increasing the size or number of refrigerators. Overall we loved our stay, great central location and rooms and l facilities are amazing value.

Noisey at night.
As a pub was directly under our room and it was open until late at night, it was noisey to sleep.
