10/10 Exceptional

Clean, warm and friendly
Solo traveller here on a snowboarding trip stayed in the 6 pod room with ensuite for 4 nights and really pleased with my stay. Communal lounge and kitchen were warm and very clean. Bathrooms and showers were clean overall. Some of the showers didn’t have their shower doors close quite properly though so water would splash out quite easily so after a few showers the bath mat was soaked. But the staff had cleaned and dried the shower by the next day with a fresh bath mat so all good. Only needed to interact with reception staff a couple of times but they were all good and helpful when I did. Room was warm enough and even on the winter nights, there were some nights I had to kick the duvet off because it was too warm. But would rather have that than being cold. Luckily my fellow roomies were pretty chill too which made the stay nice. Also great that it’s so close to town and bus stop to go to airport. Will definitely stay here again.

8/10 Very good

Good location, a short walk to town so you don't have to deal with the loudness! Was a bit weird having one toilet in the room for 6 people, and then 1 toilet in the hallway. I could imagine there being a queue for the Toilet/Shower due to there not being too many. The Lounge area is nice a big, great place for hanging out, and has a nice view towards the Lake.
