I wanted somewhere good and cheap and the Palarine turned out to be brilliant. The food was the best part, it was amazing! It was buffet food the whole time but we had a different themed evening every night, with a big roast on the first night, an Italian evening with pizzas and breads etc and an American night with burgers, BBQ wings etc. The highlight of the week was the Chinese night as the owner was a Chinese lady who was married to a Scotsman - the people that owned the hotel were lovely.
The location is fine, there isn’t a huge amount in the town but if we wanted the shops we could just get off the lifts and do that and then catch the free ski bus back. The hotel did have a little shuttle service that you could use if they were picking someone up / dropping them off, but there’s also the local ski bus. You could also walk up in about 10-15 minutes which we did a few times.
