PROS- This was THE best hotel I've stayed in hands down. The views from here are terrific, especially the lakes and the mountains. The rooms were super comfortable and the food was awesome.

Stayed there for three nights. One the most pleasant stays. The hotel is a heritage property, so it maintains the charm. The USP of the hotel is its courteous restaurant staff. Got a personalised service. I'd love to stay there again. However, a little bit of more polish here and there won't hurt the heritage.

It was heavenly sitting in the sit out early morning or in the late evenings listening to the live band playing in the garden. The food was excellent with a good service . loved the place very...

We were ready to pay the difference but the manager gave us a free upgrade which was great. The room was decent. Every evening, they had live music and songs however, not sure if there was variety from one evening... More
