We stayed for one night off season, therefore were able to get a room facing the lake - quite beautiful to watch the sunrise. Unlike the previous people who commented on the location, we had no problems with the temperature control of the room. The lobby was going through a few renovations, however nothing that would disturb anyone's stay.
The breakfast buffet was included in our package, and it was the absolute best breakfast buffet I have had anywhere! Very good mix of Western and Asian cuisine, and they were even kind enough to cook a separate omelet without pork for us (once we got over the language barrier).
The grounds are very pretty, and I could only imagine how nice it must be when it is in full season. The one downside is that they had the karaoke going and we could hear it all the way up; it was background noise, but not enough to keep us up.
In regards to shampoo and conditioner, I noticed that they are not a standard amenity in Korea; you can bring your own or purchase the ones they have on sale through the extras. They have a whole bunch of facial lotions that I did not know what to do with. No other problems with the room (very clean and new), or staff (quiet, kept to themselves probably because we were the only foreigners for the night).
Would stay there again without a second thought.
