My company had booked us a deluxe chalet at the river back. The location was superb, but the chalet itself was a disappointment. There was nothing luxurious other than the location. Not enough storage room. Basic kitchen, sauna and toilets. Good beds and pillows. You can easily hear what is going on in the neighbour behind the wall.

We are a family of 4 traveling from the US with our two children.

We were really pleasantly surprised by The Chalet Hotel - I wasn't expecting anything too fancy but were delighted by our chalet, which had a living room with a downstairs bedroom, but an extra bedroom upstairs, which we didn't use. The sauna was excellent and a welcome way to warm up after walks through the snowy landscape. Breakfast was plentiful:... More

The clean chalets are relatively spacious, and at least some (maybe all?) come with their own sauna, which is a nice touch. Breakfast is available in the main building, and is decent, if not more. The setting by the side of the river is nice - ask for a cottage on the river-facing side of the road, if you don't... More
