We booked a two bedroom suite. It is really a one bedroom studio with a one bedroom suite, with the common door unlocked. The beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms quite nice. The mattress on the pullout couch was very worn in and extremely uncomfortable. You could feel all sort of lumps and bumps as well as the metal bar that... More

The staff were awesome. Katie (at the front desk) was such a delight to deal with! Our suite was beautiful and we had an amazing view of the mountains! Our suite was on the third floor and faced the back of the hotel (mountain side, away from the ski hill). I'd recommend getting this because the views are better! More

My travel agent, via a wholesaler, booked us into this place, which advertises itself as a HOTEL. It is NOT a hotel. It is self-catering accommodation. It is miles out of town. If you arrive unprepared, and after hours, as we did, you will have to drive back down the mountain for sustenance. This accommodation misrepresents itself in order to... More

Stayed in a one room bedroom suite in August, 2016. The room was clean, and quite spacious with a very nice view from the balcony. Kitchenette had the essentials. I was disappointed that there was not a king sized bed when you "upgrade" to a suite. The location though is lovely - worth the extra drive up the mountain.

Let me preface this review by saying that the condominium units at this location are all privately owned and that Bellstar Resorts only acts as the rental agent, thus, some of the deficiencies mentioned here may not apply to every unit.
