In need of some TLC
Mattresses need replacing could feel the springs.
Thicker curtains needed see through ones not great when u r directly opposite a hotel.
Extra duvet and pillows available but no linen for them.
Self catering but no oven.
Info pack would have been helpful.
Not very cosy and dated decor everything tables lamps etc felt like someones left overs.
Had a great holiday as snow fantastic but very disappointed with appartment. First time we have had to say this when staying in Austria. Our 6th time to Kaprun.

Before arrival we always advise our guests that if something in the flat does not work or is broken to tell the housekeeper during their stay. We remind them that the housekeeper will not be able to solve any problems for them once they have left.
Regarding the property needing TLC, his year we have spent a large of money on the property installing brand new triple glazed windows and door.
We have not been informed previously that mattresses need replacing or that our guest could feel the springs. In fact the guest who stayed immediately before this stayed for over a month and gave it a good review on HomeAway. She did not mentioned a problem with the mattresses. However we will ask the housekeeper the check the mattresses to see if they need changing.
Even though the curtains are not thick we do not agree that they are see through.
The duvet and pillow required by guest always have their covers and pillow cases put on before the guest arrive. The extra duvet and pillows mentioned are for use when they are three or four guest staying. As there were only two guests there was no need for the extra sets to have bed linen provided.
The kitchen has a four ring electric hob and microwave oven. The kitchen facilities are as advertised and they clear from the photos on the website. We are often told that the facilities are ideal for a self catering holiday
We send our guest plenty of information beforehand via email.
