    Добро пожаловать в великолепный отель, затерявшийся в живописной альпийской долине Бутылочное Горлышко. Естественная красота и свободные от рутины дни правят здесь. Добро пожаловать в комфортабельные комнаты с первоклассными видами, приезжайте и присядьте около камина, оставив позади свою усталость. Добро пожаловать в место, где Вас ожидает тайна, а призрак погибшего альпиниста оставляет свои знаки.

    Здесь есть все, что бы не пожелал самый скрупулезный клиент. Здесь более чем Вы хотели – Вы встретитесь и с противоречиями и со странными несчастными случаями. Здесь прибывают интересные люди, чьи отношения нормальны лишь на первый взгляд. Добро пожаловать в мир масок – здесь ею обладает каждый.

    Вы получите несколько мистических исчезновений и смертей. Вы получите тысячу вопросов. Найдете ответы, но будьте осторожны – ведь так легко сойти с ума. Получите страх, ненависть и страсть - кипите, сколько пожелаете, но не сгорите дотла.

    Welcome to the beautiful hotel lost in a picturesque alpine valley Bottle Neck. The natural beauty and days free from routine rule here. Welcome to comfortable rooms with first-rate views, come and sit near the fireplace and leave your weariness behind. Welcome to the place where the mystery is waiting for you and the lost climber`s ghost leaves his signs.

    There is everything the most fastidious client wants. There is more than you want - you`ll find strange accidents and contradictions. There are interesting people who`s relations are so normal only at first sight. Welcome to the world of masks - everyone here has some.

    You`ll get some mystical disappearances and deaths. You`ll get thousand of questions. Take some answers but watch yourself - it`s easy to become insane. Get the fear, hate and passion - boil as long as you wish but don't burn to ashes.
