my husband and i stayed here for a few days , in april 2012 . rooms were lovely big ,breakfast was included and was lovely . the bed was nice and big , think it's the first time i've had a bed in a hotel that i thought was lovely . the hotel also has a lovely terrace which we sat and had a few drinks with beautiful views out over the lake and mountains. we had tv ,tea coffee facitities ,our room wasn't overlooking the lake, it was facing the back street , which was a little noisy with a extractor fan ( or something like that ) . but we didn't expect the best room in the hotel as we'd booked up not long before via hotels.com and got a reasonable deal for the 2 nights with one including dinner and breakfast for both . dinner was very nice it was a la carte , tho if it wasn't included in the price i wouldn't have gone . the next night we ate at hyltons which was very nice and since been back to eat there again . hotel staff i couldn't fault and the hotel itself is lovely in a lovely spot ,shops , bars and restuarants are all in the vicinity of the hotel . i would definately recommend this hotel and would definately go again ....great hotel
