24/7 patrolling guards, even around the lake edge
Loads of mossies, cannot open room door near lake
Room beautiful and clean and well decorated.
Hot water very erratic - scalding hot, then cold and anything in between at random (quite dangerous)
Reception staff incredibly friendly polite and handsome :-)
Breakfast disorganised, waiters not very good, food not in line with the rest of the hotel... quite poor food. Wifi only available at reception. In all a lovely place, lake really not an eye catcher, but location is good if you want to see the ruins.
