    Very nice hotel in High Sierra style, warm rooms with beautiful wood furniture, a very comfortable bed and a complete bathroom that includes a heated wardrobe for drying your clothes in a wet day. The receptionist was extremely friendly too.

    Yes, upon check-in we were offered a shuttle service to the tramping start and end points, which looked as a good option although we did not use it (used out car instead).

    Trails are practical on the door step , a wee distance to the ski fields but November no snow, the powder horn is the perfect place to use as a headquarters.
