Make sure you'll get a room with Lake view! The room we had was like a mini apartment, with washing machine, extra bedroom, lounge and cooking facilities. I really enjoyed having 2 basins in the bathroom (I am not convinced that one needs a double shower cabin, but it is an interesting experience!). The room has very much the design... More

This was a time-share exchange week and this hotel was superb - modern, clean and with an outstandingly good restaurant. And the location, right on the lake, was superb. The only 'down' issue was wi-fi access, which was variable at best in the room - but fine in the hotel reception area.

Excellent location and view. Hotel staff was friendly and responsive. The room was very nice and well appointed. The one shortcoming was that housekeeping had not tended to the balcony area in some time. Other than that the accommodation was fine. The restaurant was very nice. We had a large group for dinner but had called ahead with our choices... More

The location of this resort is beautiful with lovely lakeshore walking tracks. That is the only positive...as well as the green lawns.! The building is tired and the room we stayed in needed a refurbishment...worn carpets, old fixtures and fittings and ancient bathroom. The worst part was how hot and stuffy the room was on arrival...we had to leave the... More

Dear Jokate We appreciate your feedback about the hotel. I am pleased to say that we are progressing through a refurbishment programme. About 1/3 of the rooms will be completed this autumn. However all rooms will not be complete until middle of next year. We can have some very hot days in the height of summer, especially February. Did you... More

Lovely lunch from beginning to end. Greeted by a super friendly hostess, (don't know her name - absolutely charming, middle aged woman - she was our favorite out of every restaurant we visited during our 21 day trip) and seated at a table by the window. The weather was extremely variable that day so had a ringside view of the... More

We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. Our room was one floor up, overlooking the duck pond and lake, with lovely views of the surrounding area. We were able to stroll into town easily along the shore, a very pleasant walk and a nice distance out of town. My wife and I enjoyed the restaurant, even though the choice... More

Just a beautiful and peaceful setting, we loved the gardens and the ducks. The rooms were very clean and tidy. So quiet yet not too far out of town. Could have stayed for much much longer! Great value for money and plenty of wonderful facilities! We will be back for sure!!!
