Well located, about a ten-minute lake-side walk from the city centre, this was ideal for our one-night visit. Arriving on a hot late-afternoon, we were able to cool off in the delightful swimming pool within minutes of arrival. As the dining room doesn't have any view, we opted to stroll and eat elsewhere (more expensively!), and for a bit of people-watching; but the breakfast offered a good buffet. What I really enjoyed was the sense of history, as I think the hotel has been owned by the same family since it opened in the early 1900s. There is a room full of artefacts (old phones, original china, pieces of furniture, and many photos, showing its location (without being surrounded by the shops of today), previous owners and staff, room lay-out and furniture, and its turn of the last century feel. This is a hotel that should never have too much modernisation imposed on it - it's simply a classic!
