Negative Reviews

Restaurant leaves guests disappointed

Whether it's the poor quality and selection of food – especially at breakfast – or the strange and limited hours, the restaurant leaves guests frustrated and wanting more from the experience. Many say they try it out once and never go back.

No temperature control

Due to a reported lack of air conditioning, fans, and adequate heating system, guests say they just can't get the right temperature to make them feel comfortable. Frustratingly, it's either too hot and stuffy or too cold, depending on the time of year.

Accommodations need updating

Visitors say that the chalets which make up the accommodations here are in need of modernisation and refurbishment.
