Large well appointed modern clean room. Excellent friendly service. Small touches like free biscuits in the room and free continental breakfast sets this establishment apart from the rest. Just had a meal in the restaurant and the food was delicious and came with a 10% discount as well.

Had 3 nights with hubby and miss 7 for an early few days skiing at Mt Hutt. We were greeted warmly on arrival and on being shown to our room the lady wasn't happy with something in the bathroom so put us next door. To us, both rooms were spotless so no complaints! Big shout out to the cleaning team...
