Lovely room looking out on to the lake. Large room with King size bed and lovely spa bath. The Grotto (private spa pool) is a great extra. Staff are lovely and a fantastic restaurant. We will be back in summer to be able to enjoy the view.

Staff very friendly, the bar area was beautiful with a fireplace and beautiful seating that looks over the lake. Rooms very clean and reasonably well maintained. The spa... More

Great service and beautiful meal we had on our first night. The only thing that needed a change was the outside stairs and corridor to the room,. bitterly cold it is the... More

a large room looking out onto lake. Great evening meal on a very wet and cold night. Hotel was very warm. Extra large king bed, very confortable giving both of us a good nights sleep. the shower was a corner one ,a bit of a tight squeeze. This was the only negative

We had a Standard Lakeview room, and we were disappointed with most aspects of our stay. We were welcomed by a very efficient and polite guy on check-in, but he appeared to be the only decent staff member here we encountered. We had staff members smoking outside our room on the balcony, who gave us weird looks when we wanted... More
