We enjoyed our stay at Alpine Heath resort. It is well located, clean, the cottages nice and it offers several activities. In my opinion the spa should be better organized and the restaurant could offer more diversity. Bring your own food if you want to do self catering as there

Good Morning, Our chalets all have three bedrooms. A main bedroom with a double bed and en-suite bathroom, and two bedrooms sharing a second bathroom. Typically the other bedrooms have two single beds each, but they can be put together to make a double bed upon request. Regards, aha Alpine Heath Resort

Good Day Theo, Thank you so much for your enquiry. With regards to the decor, all our chalets have recently been refurbished, so we do hope that the state of the chalet will be to your satisfaction. You are welcome to provide us with your email address and we will provide you with images of the chalet interior for your perusal. With regards to the air conditioning, there are plans in place to install a/c systems in the units, as in the interim we have overhead fans in the chalets. On the back of the reviews that you make reference to, we have also tasked our maintenance and estates team with testing the drainage in the chalets, as well as ensuring that the exterior is free of hazards such as broken glass and the like. We've also enlisted the services of a pest control company to assist with eradicating the ant problem on the property. We will do everything in our power to ensure that your stay and that of all our guests is a pleasant one, and hope that you will enjoy your time with us. Regards, aha Alpine Heath Resort Management
