            Excellent Cottage ”

            I stayed with my family at this place during Nov 2017. We were upgraded to a bigger 2 bedroom cottage that also had a spacious living, dining and kitchen area. It is 5-minutes drive from town center and virtually next to nothing which means that you are totally at peace while still short drive to amenities. We had a wonderful two nights there with the host providing excellent recommendations on places to visit. He even lent us cricket bat/ball, DVD and books to pass our evening time. Kitchen was well equipped and we had home cooked dinner with wine enjoying in midst of nature. Wifi could have been faster but with so many things to do, this was hardly an issue. Excellent place and hosts.

He even provided us the weather forecast for the days we are there. The lodge was clean and really comfortable. The big window in the living room provide a perfect view of the glaicer and night sky..

            We stayed in a 2 bedroomed chalet for tonights in March.It was a spacious and well equipped chalet, although the bathroom was a little small. There is a laundry on site but you need to book the use of it. Situated about 4km from the town centre. Not much of a view but a convenient location.

            I might be biased on my review as we have been offered an upgrade from 1-bedroom to 2bedroom cottage! Andddddd, they even delivered complimentary breakfast to our doorstep! Quiet location away from the busy main road. The owner is nice and friendly. He recommended a few places of interest and restaurants to visit. Chalet is new, nice and clean. Beds and sofa were very comfortable. They provide complimentary DVD for loan as well. Overall, I recommend staying here.

            The bathroom is well heated so need not to worry about taking shower in cold weather. It's located 5 minutes away from the town so driving is necessary. Basic pantry condiments such as salt and pepper are provided so if you would like to cook you can get the groceries sorted out at Foursquare supermarket at the town area. Will definitely stay here again in the future!
