Location excellent close to all attractions Staff exceedingly helpful and friendly Travel advice which helped us plan a full day of excursions
Good location. Quiet.
The room was very shabby and did not feel clean. We stayed 2 nights and they didn’t make beds. Breakfast very DIY - had to wash our own dishes. Not fruit juice or real coffee. Terrible value for money.
Great location and lovely friendly staff.
Nothing It was great.
Very central, walking distance from everything in Franz Josef village and with easy access to trails. It was nice to have the option of making your own pancakes at breakfast.
The room was not very clean. Staff at reception was not very nice and did not provide much info at all. Food finished in the middle of the breakfast hour and we had to wait quite some time for it to be replaced.
WiFi sometimes weak in places
