Simple but comfortable, not the room you see
We were very unlucky with the room, the rooms advertised as images on Hotels.com are only the ones in the main building, there is a huge 2nd building with very old and simple room. There was a curling group they were busy with and forgot us. No time to serve us in the restaurant. The sauna is in another building, we reserved it (as we had to with COVID) but they didn't turn it on although we specifically asked for it. They kind of forgot to serve us due to the big group. I guess we were unfortunate to stay there that night. But definitely be mindful of rooms that are advertised on Hotels.com, is not the one you get!

Beautiful hotel, nice service, clean, but It has poor soundproofing so you could hear the street noice, people in hall areas, people moving directly above (floors are quite squicky). It also felt a bit on a colder side in the room despite heater working properly.

10/10 Exceptional

This place is a home away from home with a wonderful restaurant. This rustic cabin style hotel is just such a lovely place. The employees are very nice and helpful to us — especially the woman assisting everyone during breakfast. The facility definitely makes you feel like home, and it is such a beautiful place to go home after a tiring hiking day! They are very accommodating and the food is very yummy!

Somewhat sketchy
Very nice lobby with wood paneling everywhere. Our room was under the roof, several stairs up, tiny and 70ies interior, with a bed hard as a rock, and a huge pillow with almost no content. Then again a great breakfast buffet (although crowded) and a non-committing person at the check-out. Overall ok for 1 night but I would not want to spend more time.
