The driveway leads you through a framed view until the lake opens up in front of you; to stunning and breathtaking effect. This is picture perfect. The light is constantly changing and so you are not in a static image but a constantly moving one. And then......... the deer arrive to the waters edge. They perform as if they know... More

Setting: stunning location on the lake. Feels remote, but not far from town. Saw deer herd on the grounds more than once including from the breakfast room. Luckily saw a sunny dawn with mists rising off the lake. Atmosphere: old world charm with reasonably modern facilities. Little library with diverse books. Big day lounge with piano, lit fire and mounted... More

What a beautiful spot ! We had a larger room that faced the mountains - and the view was just incredible. Big room with so much room for 3 people. Service was great, really nice atmosphere, lovely restaurant and the food was really good. We would stay here again for sure.

Came here for one night to celebrate an anniversary with my husband and our 9 week old baby. We were given room 314, the room was small, cold and damp - alarming conditions for a 4 star hotel. The room looked out over the hotel's entrance which meant that we were frequently woken by drunken patrons noisily waiting for taxis.... More

We stayed here in mid-October and the weather was amazing to be able to sit out on our deck and take in the beautiful scenery this hotel has to offer.
