I spent a few days here with my wife and children. It was really nice hotel in a very clean and quiet environment with some particularly beautiful views over the lake. We stayed in one of the suites (201) and therefore it was very spacious. It was well equipped with two high-spec televisions and I was particularly impressed with the fact that there were HD connections built into the walls allowing access via computer or Apple TV had we thought to bring them. There was free Internet access throughout the hotel and a good mobile signal. The bathroom was lovely and our bed was huge.
The children had a sofa bed arrangement on the other side of the suite, which was perfectly adequate and was separated by sliding doors. As they are 2 and 4, they particularly loved the toy story artwork and other marvel comic style art in the room. Their room had a wonderful view over the lake at the back of the building, which also overlooked a courtyard area, where there were tables and chairs arranged for the guests to enjoy the lake and wonderful views as the sun goes down of an evening.
Finally I would comment on the restaurant and breakfast experience, which were both great. Despite my children being somewhat noisy in what was a very lovely atmosphere, the staff were wonderful. One of the waitresses took a liking to my children and really made the evening lovely for us all by not only playfully entertaining the children, but also allowing my wife and I to eat whilst the children were somewhat distracted promises of with ice cream If they were good boys...
All in all I would say that we had a great time and I would certainly visit again.
