Lovely, spacious rooms with balconies. Family room had full kitchen and loft area. Wide choice of breakfast and small pool was an added bonus during unseasonably hot weather. Owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. Only problem for us was that the weather was unusually warm and we suffered at nights due to lack of air conditioning. We were... More

This was a wee gem, very friendly staff who were very helpful. Room was huge, with balcony on to gardens and free car park. Free wifi too. Close to the centre, 5 -10 minute stroll. Has a restaurant that was great - local well made meals in a family run establishment and was great value too.

lovely hotel just a few minutes walk from centre and 5-10 minutes from the lake. Excellent room with separate kitchen and balcony. Very friendly staff with fluent English. Only negative is lack of air conditioning but there is under floor cooling.

We had a very friendly welcome coming into the hotel. The lady in the front desk was extremely service minded and gave us the oppurtunity to choose between two different rooms before checking in. She was also very helpful with restaurant recomendations and other tips for our stay. We tried the pool area and it was very nice and clean.... More

We had a lovely room with a mountain view. The staff were all delightful. The restaurant is great, reasonable price and delicious food. The breakfast was also good. It is also a short walk into the beautiful town.

We only stayed two nights, but we're made to feel welcome on our arrival. The room was clean and bed comfortable. We did not make use of the pool but had we stayed longer we would have. It looked well maintained. Breakfast was A good choice of food and a plentiful supply.

Our third visit to the hotel and it was lovely to return and be remembered by the concierge so that we felt really welcome as guests. The room we have each visit is wonderful and the bed is huge, as is the bathroom. It keeps us coming back each year. Breakfast is extensive and good, service is also good. We... More
