Customer Reviews of Breckenridge Ski Resort, Colorado

We have 1 review for Breckenridge Ski Resort, Colorado.

"Just some feedback.The Great Divide is an excellent hotel!. I've stayed all over the world and this had one of the largest hotel rooms I've seen. Lifts were a problem- a limited amount of them over 10 floors- had to wait a while to get one. Food was great, room service was quick and again, very good. Starbucks coffee in the room and a coffee maker was great. Location to the slopes and town was excellent. A few mins walk to the ski lift and 10 min walk to the town centre, although a free shuttle bus takes you there day or night. Staff were always friendly and helpful. The pool and hottubs were all clean and it was really quiet the whole week we were there in April. Theres also free internet in the room, which is a bonus. The hotel had a real warm 'home' feeling from walking in the door.Far better than the crap I have put up with in Europe.This really is worth the stay, we would definitely return.The snow conditions were superb too.Why dont more people go in April?"
