Very friendly, welcoming, great value...upgraded and no single tariff supplement. Its a bit off putting to be asked to reach a target of characters to reach: one is more inclined to say what one has to say, and finish.

Happy memories of a relaxed, happy and peaceful stay. Our room was comfortable, private and met all our needs ( mosquito netting on the windows would help!! and something to put clothes on in bathroom). We had a lovely mountain view from our patio, so lovely to see the sun go down. Lovely river walks on the property. The meals...

The stay was perfect... Its just that the condition of the chalets can be improved... The towels are sort of old... Bath tubs not good at all... It would be easier to have showers than bath tubs... There were no laundry bags in the rooms, had to ask

Great location and service was excellent. Lack of undercover parking was an issue during a hailstorm(which if resolved would skyrocket my review) Fantastic meals and ambiance , and watrons were well trained I stayed an extra day , as it was very enjoyable

My wife and I have visited The Nest (out of season) in both the cold of winter and the heat of summer, and have only good memories of both our stays. This family hotel is a peaceful destination at which both staff and owners go out of their way to make one feel welcome and at home. I have no...

This is what I call a quirky hotel. It's not perfect, but if you want a comfortable getaway with good grub, then it's excellent. It's one of the old style family hotels, which are so rare these days. We went for a 4 days break in the New Year. The place was packed with guests - obviously for this time...

My first visit was about thirty years ago when I was five years old. The comfortable room and swimming pool was what I remembered the most and now, years later The Nest was a clear choice to stay at while visiting with my husband from Wales. Main thing you need to know is that the food is exceptional. For dinner...
