Great hotel with excellent facilities.
The hotel suites were a good size. They were stylish and kept very clean. Good selection of food at breakfast and dinner. The children loved the swimming pool. Bus stop to the cable car immediately opposite hotel so ideal location. Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. Had a lovely bar area, games room and with activities and toys for all ages. Great hotel!
