Extremely accomodating and lovely hosts. Very warm, clean and only a few minutes walk from town so perfect location. Delicious breakfast including a cooked option and the option of an outdoor spa after a skiing was an added bonus! Would definitely come back and recommend to others!

“The rooms are all excellent. We chose a king bed but there are other choices. While we stayed in a large room downstairs, the upstairs rooms would have a view. Other rooms have a view over the adjacent paddocks.”
