My husband and I stayed here for our 20th anniversary. The room was spotless and well maintained daily and offered exceptional views from the large balcony. Upon arrival, a bottle of champagne and chocolates arrived, the person who made my reservation asked if the stay was for a special occasion, and they followed through, a nice touch. Breakfast is served daily, and while not extraordinary, it's a definite step up from plain old continental and gives you the opportunity to have a bite and coffee before starting the day. It's served in a lovely area with both indoor and outdoor tables, with heaters outdoors. The staff keeps an eye out that things are restocked as needed, so there is plenty to choose from. There is a small, but beautifully designed hot tub that we enjoyed during our stay, with surprisingly no other guests on each visit, it felt like we had the place to ourselves. Good location with easy access to main roads, but high above them, so you really only enjoy the sounds of the water with outstanding views.
