Point blank lake and mountain views, as well as all facilities & free internet make for a good base to ski Cardrona and Treble Cone. Friendly staff. Laundry and drying room available. Happy to stay here again.

We stayed in the two bedroom for one night. It was very clean and right across from the lake. It was quite cold when we arrived and took Some time for the room to heat up. Electric blankets on the bed helped.

We had a lovely room on the top floor with a fantastic view of the lake from the balcony. The room was spacious and very clean. The hotel was well situated and just a short walk to the shops and restaurants.

The studio room we had did not have AC. It should be warm in Dec but not the hottest which is more like Jan/Feb. You should be fine.
