Visited for drinks and loved it - both the decor and the atmosphere was spot on - certainly will be back for some afternoon tea or an overnight stay! The outside ski bar was excellent and warm enough to sit out even in december

Stayed a night in a two bedroom apartment which is located just around the corner from the main part of Oddfellows. Overall, excellent! Parking right in front of the apartment in middle of town. Well furnished, great kitchen, homely and a good size. Would definitely stay there again!

The bar was buzzing when we arrived, despite the early hour (7pm 21 December). Three cheers for the bar staff (staff in the singular) who adeptly mulitasked the many single handed (till reinforcements arrived) - great slick service. We made our own 'atmosphere' in the restaurant at first, it being very quiet, but the staff were fabulous. Attentive, patient, helpful...
