    Ben gave a super warm welcome and checked to make sure everything was ok whenever we saw him. Good lad, and always up for some chat and banter. Vibe was great - nice and chill, plenty to keep one entertained and a good vintage alpine chalet decor. Facilities were spot on: a large and well equipped kitchen, comfy sofas in front of a fire, tv room with PlayStation, HOT TUB!!! FREE POP CORN!!! FREE VEGETABLE SOUP IN THE EVENINGS!!! FREE BREAKFAST!!! Seriously, one couldn’t ask for a better spot.
