6/10 Good

It is marketed as a five star which it isn't as the furniture is dated the carpets in need of cleaning or replacing and the bookingsite did not show there were pets on the premises

Beautiful grounds with backdrop of mountains in a modern town with its great hot pools. Very peaceful zen- woo woo setting with inspirational sayings on the walls. Steve, the owner cooks a large tasty and artfully prepared breakfast. Ten minutes from the town. The apartment is huge with fully equipped kitchen and a/c- heat. Comfortable bed with quality linens.

So relaxing & great service from Steve & Mary Jo. As it was our honeymoon we appreciated the luxury touches in the Alpine Villa, the spa tub outside under stars and the lovely breakfasts.
