8/10 Very Good

Convenient, great location & can get noisy!
I have stayed at Breathtaker before and enjoyed both stays. The previous stay was prior to the recent renovations, which have tidied up the lobby & breakfast area for the better, however left the loft space feeling a lot less cosy and a bit sterile. Unfortunately this time, we experienced bad cooking odours and a fair degree of noise from a neighbouring apartment. The building doesn't have particularly great noise insulation, with scents seeming to waft via the shared vent system. Management did compensate us for the negative experience, which was reassuring that these concerns were taken on board. My previous visit seemed to be far less noisy in one of the smaller one storey appartments, where as he larger two storey apartment had serious noise and smell issues. Breathtaker is overall a great place to stay if you land a quiet room with quiet considerate neighbours. The spa is a pleasant place to restore and relax after a day out on he snow and staff seem to have improved since the previous visit, with terrific service and very polite attitude.

Hotel was selling itself as ski in/out. This was not totally correct. Whilst the walk was short you still had to walk 70m to the chair lift. The hotel is definitely on the snow but I would not class it as ski in/out based on my previous experience. (Having said that I have not booked any other ski in/out hotels on to know if this this is a normal classification for this style of accommodation). We stayed in a 6 bedroom room. 1 double bed and 4 bunks. The living room was tiny & did not have a view towards the snow or mountains. Kitchenette was unpractical to work in. These were the main disappointments. There are other rooms in the complex which I am sure would be better. The complex itself was very clean and professional. Breakfast included was lovely. The best croissants I have ever eaten. (supplied from the Mansfield bakery). The spa, sauna and lap pool in the complex were excellent. Would be better if they stayed open after 6:00pm. You have to try one of their desert pizzas, delicious.

The shower is very small and we can’t do late checkout so we have to checkout at 10.00am, because we don’t want to get the hotel management charge us and even you are staying with a kids at the age of 6, and you book a room for 2 adults, you have to pay charges for your kids 80$ per night

It was my daughters first time at the snow, and the whole trip was absolutely magical. The Breathtaker Hotel made our whole trip so enjoyable! The staff couldn't do enough to help us and went above and beyond from the moment we got there to when we left. The location couldn't have been more perfect, a short walk to the ski lifts, the ski school, and the village. Grimus ski hire was just next door and their service was also excellent. The only negative was that I wish there were healthier menu options, especially for the kids. Thank you!
