Quite a decent hotel with spacy rooms and friendly service, however i would say "4 and a half stars" rather than 5. The biggest mishap was a very lousy house keeping service in terms of room cleaning - just not proper and not up to quality level (maids also left the doors open after cleaning, two days on a row).
Other than that - all's decent, the views make up for it all. Terrasse bar right on the lake (where you can sunbathe) is stunning and comfortable. However i found it a bit discomforting that out of the 3 days of our stay, 2 days they would close it at 4-5 pm for private events. As a hotel guest - it's rather uncomfortable not to be able to use this one of the hotel's best facilities.
Lacks an on-water pool and a hotel car service which would be expected from a 5-star hotel.
Good location too - a bit off center, but it makes it less crowdy.
