The Prow was excellent restaurant. The room overall is fine. The maintenance areas around the property are unkempt and messy - unappealing. The place feels worn - but still suitable for a weekend of skiing.

Great experience. Premier room was super cool. With balcony looking at the mountains and natural in room fire place. Tub was large and nice for an epsom salt soak.

2/10 Poor

We showed up at 2 to try early check-in. They could not accommodate, said try at 4, no worries! Show up at 4, they say another half hour, ok no problem. Go in at 430 they say half hour and give a drink voucher. OK, annoying but thanks. At 5 they say half an hour, short on staff. At this point we are starting to get pretty annoyed. They offer dinner, which we didn't really need, as we had reservations at a cool place that's hard to book. We had a newborn and toddler who were getting restless. Long story short we got in our room at 815 with horribly grumpy kids, and they didn't give a crap about the wait. Room was filthy as well. For a place this expensive I couldn't be more disappointed. Spend your money elsewhere. Would be different if staff weren't so flippant and rude
