I was disappointed with the check in, I had been advised that there would be someone at reception between 3-6pm but on arrival There was just an envelope with key. The chalet was warm and had all the amenities, like bench top oven as the regular oven was not available. Having 3 remotes to operate the tv was an experience, instructions were supplied but not immediately noticed. Needless to say Covid has had a part to play in the welcome and the lack of restaurant so am sure that when the crowds start arriving once more this will be a very inviting accommodation option.

We loved being able to park our car right out front. Also great walking such a short distance to the restaurant and reception. My husband was also very happy there was a pool table and holy hour! Food was delicious.

There aren’t a lot of places to stay in this area. The location was very close to Cathedral Caves and McLean Falls. I booked a double + twin, but only got one double. I think it was a Hotels.com mistake. The owners and staff were nice and helpful
