We're going back 50 years maybe? I can just about handle 50 days if given the right medication, but 50 years?

(I may have some photos I can dig out.)

I have memory of the Swiss Chalet having a fire previously also. I am not 50.

There hadn't been any money spent in the Swiss Chalet last week!    Glamping Pods in the garden though.

So, no advantage to the current operator, presumably of the Pods but camping in the Chalet.

Loss to the previous operator who were trying to sell the ingoing???

Glad no one was hurt.  Hope the Redwoods were OK too!

Why does the government own this? I mean really WTAF.

It should be sold as soon as its fixed, gov has no place in being a landlord in this type of situation.

It's in a Forestry Glen, who else would look after it as DEFA do?

That would be the same Swiss chalet that been for sale for ages and which will have no TT trade this year? 

Must say the two guys that ran it circa 2008/ 2010 ish,provided excellent food ,at far too cheap prices in my opinon,the wife and i got stuck in the car park a  whole day couple of times at the TT,with bad weather around then,and i remember thinking i would have payed more for what they served.I gave them a big  compliment on the old TT forum that closed,when it was a thread on "Biggest TT rip off"  Its a shame thats gone.

Will the insurance cover this or is it another of the Govts ''self insured''?  Could mean 'we' pay out for it's re-build which MNH will insist on???
