We stayed in this hotel over Christmas and did enjoy our stay. The hotel is in a wonderful position right on the lake and the views across the lake from the balcony of our room were stunning. Staff were friendly and the buffet breakfast was nice enough but not 5 star quality. The only criticism we had is that the hotel is in desperate need of a renovation and for the price, does not represent value for money. We learned from a video in the castle that the hotel was completely renovated in the 1920's and it feels like it has not been touched since. The hotel has a wonderfully spacious tea room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the lake. It would be an amazing place to while away the hours if it wasn't for the old uncomfortable furniture and rather cold atmosphere (a bit like your grandparents' "good room"!). The rooms have a similar feel. Ours had two single beds pushed together and no modern comforts such as Wi-Fi (there is Wi-Fi in the reception area only). Not what you would expect of a 5 star hotel. The spa centre was a little disappointing also. It's advertised as a thermal pool but the water is cold which is not what you want in December. At the end of the day, a very nice hotel but not 5 stars as it is currently priced and advertised. lIdeally we would have given it 3.5 stars which is a shame because the hotel has so much potential.
