The location was out of the bustle of town and the view to the mountains was clear. The facilities were clean and comfortable.
Great apartments (although you need a car to get there from town)
close to the centre, very quiet,a lovely place.
Facilities Friendliness of staff cleanliness
Good space, great to have a full kitchen.
Lovely location, staff are so helpful. We have marked all our accommodations out of 10 and this one we gave a 10!!!!! They booked our restaurant reservation at the Blue Ice, and we had free transportation, not just any car a stretch hummer. Lovely surroundings, we just really enjoyed our stay.
It's outside of town but not too far away. You will need a car. Facilities are adequate but nothing fancy.
The single heater was just not strong enough. We had to sit in front of the heater to thaw at times. The place advertises sky television but there wasn't any. In fact even free to air tv was not watchable. Reception was awful. So it was as good as no tv.
Great apartment had everything. The welcome was very good with helpful information.
Friendly helpful staff. View pretty good. Place to relax away from it all.
Couple of the arm chairs were very uncomfortable. Could feel the springs. No wardrobes to hang clothes/jackets in.
Beautiful views Comfortable accommodation Friendly staff
just out of town but well worth the stay just for the view and quietness.
Room and facilities are good. Gwen is nice and very helpfull,thank for give extra blanket for my mom. All of us miss you.
Was an excellent environment with the views and birdsong. Mel and Nigel were outstanding and at all times were concerned to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable.
I loved the accomodation - it was excellent value for money.
The cows in the field behind the cabins were extremely loud till after midnight and again 5am in the morning.
Peace and quiet of location and stretch hummer to the restaurant and return
Mel and Nigel were excellent. They provided us with a quick check in, had the unit warmed up and provided us with a suprise continental breakfast basket when we returned from dinner!
signage to get there
Rooms were good, very clean
Lack of hanging space for coats and towels and nowhere to stand cases on.
The new owners are great and helpful, and the kitchen is well equipped.
I like that it was very quiet. They arranged all your booking for booking for you. A great spot to relax and sit on your deck for a drink.
The view was spectacular from the rooms
Needs a bit of love and attention
The host, Nigel and Mel are very friendly. they give fabulous recommendation while we're there. the chalet is very clean, comfy, heater was great, big bedrooms, kitchen and spacious living room. location is great. 5mins drive to town centre. Would definitely come back!
Friendly helpful staff! The staff will happily transport you in and out of town if you tell them in advance!
5 minutes drive out of town but we had a car so it was fine :)
The mountain view was amazing and the location was away from the major hub - which made us really relax after a long drive.
Very quiet. Each retreat building is on its own, no neighbors on the other side of any wall. Very big and spacious.
Washing machine and dryer not good. Heater not strong, only 1 small heater for quite a big place.
Fantastic place to stay, friendly staff, very helpful offering us options when it was raining
