Only 1 thing on the breakfast menu which was unappealing. So had to choose from a sparse cabinet. Chose the chicken Brie panini which was cold so asked to be toasted. Was only slightly toasted so still cold. Coffee was average. Certainly not a place...More

Small cafe catering to the holiday park and people coming through. Good selection for breakfast and there are also supplies if you are going walking in the area. No WiFi available.

This cafe is the sad cousin of the main Chateau. It is a difficult room to style but perhaps a ski lodge feel might help. Its very utilitarian and getting there from the main hotel is like a journey through the bowels of an old...More

Took the family for a late lunch and ordered 2 of the " Curry in a hurry". Food was cold and a very small portion. The lack of competition is probably the only reason this place still exists. Rather try one of the other places...More
