“Cosy hotel and wooden cabins set below a snow-capped volcano on the shores of Lago Todos Los Santos, one of Chile's most beautiful lakes, with lots of outdoor activities”
The 20 rooms in the recently built hotel are simple, modern and cosy, with lots of wood, thick duvets, carpets and large windows with views of the lake, volcano or river. Ensuite bathrooms throughout are small and functional, with white-tiled floors and pine fittings; all have a bath and a shower with plenty of hot water and decent pressure.
Families, groups or those who prefer more privacy and independence should consider one of the 4 wooden lakeside cabins, which sleep from 4 to 8 people. They're good value, so even if there are just 2 of you it can work out cheaper than staying in the hotel. All have 2 or 3 ensuite bedrooms (a double, a twin and in some cases a triple), a living/dining room, and a kitchen.
After a day of outdoor activity, unwind with a pre-dinner drink in the light and airy sitting room, where large wooden sofas with plump cushions encircle a crackling log fire and a huge coffee table made from half a tree trunk. Then head into the restaurant for a bite to eat. Here too you'll find a large open fire, fresh flowers, stripped wooden flooring and fine views through the huge glass windows.
The food is simple fare rather than inspirational gourmet cuisine. Dishes on the daily menu might include soup, avocado stuffed with chicken mayonnaise and smoked salmon, followed by chicken curry, stroganoff, or the ever popular Chilean dish of steak topped by eggs - plus the highly recommended chef’s salad, a combination of almost everything you can think of. Breakfast is a selection of bread, cookies, cakes, jam, cheese, fresh fruits, tea, coffee, juice and scrambled eggs. There aren't any other restaurants in Petrohue so we recommend booking the inexpensive half-board plan.
If you're staying in one of the 4 cabins, you can either eat in the hotel or self-cater. Each has its own kitchen equipped with an oven, a fridge, cooking utensils and a dining table. There's a small shop in Petrohue selling vegetables etc, but it's not always open and we recommend that you stock up with provisions in Puerto Montt or Puerto Varas on the way.
Children are welcome (extra beds cost the same as for adults), and are likely to enjoy the activities on offer, especially slightly older ones. The cabins with their self-catering facilities are ideal for families.
