Just as good and peaceful as our first stay 5 years ago, even though the surrounding backwaters are alot more busy. This does not have all the trappings of other 5 * hotels like room service and TVs in the rooms and the bathrooms are outside, but that just adds to its charm.
The no tipping policy (give one amount to be split between all staff at the end) really helped us relax and the hotel grounds and surrounding areas are absolutely beautiful.
All the staff were very helpful and friendly and the on-site naturalists really enhanced the stay with information about the local birds and butterflies. The pool was well used by our teenage kids and we enjoyed hiring a small boat from the hotel to explore the local area.
My husbands birthday was marked by the hotel staff by decorating our table in the restaurant and presenting a cake at the end of the meal with ALL the waiters singing happy birthday to him.
The grounds were not perfect due to the time of year and when it rained it really rained but all in all we were sad to leave and would deffinately come back. Perhaps next time we would opt for the pool villa as these have a much better veiw of the lake then the garden cottages.
