There was plenty of choice and...

Don't be fooled by the unassuming entrance, this is a jewel in the mountains. Laid back, excellent food and friendly staff with fantastic views, this is an excellent value-for-money location. We have been kayaking and laser clay pigeon shooting so far and will be back for other activities as soon as possible. Highly recommended.
