The Driftwood Inn is managed by the personnel next door in the Ptarmigan Hotel.

It is a budget hotel and most likely in a holding state ready to be demolished to make way for a new building, or if it isn't then it should be!

The general state of the building is poor and the carpets had a smokers odour to them.

The fire alarms went off twice in the night and after some time were reset, only to go off a second time.

It is not nice to have to evacuate when it's snowing, however most people seemed to stay in their beds and just ignored the alarm so perhaps this was a regular event?

The hotel is centrally located within easy walking of the village and has onsite car parking close to the entrance.

Payment for the room started with a "holding" debit to my account of more than the expected total invoice. I was assured that the deduction was only temporary and that I would receive a credit. An additional correct debit amount to my account was made on our departure and it was not for another 7 days that the initial holding deduction was refunded.

The hotel seemed to think this was normal practice ... I certainly did not.

If you are in the area then my recommendation is to find an alternative hotel.
