Everything was as indicated on the reservation & website. No surprises. Room was comfortable and clean. We paid for breakfast with our room reservation but the first morning we overslept & missed breakfast hours. The staff fed us breakfast anyway. We had a lovely time.

The hotel is well situated, a simple 10 min stroll down to the lake. The room was decent with air conditioning and I liked the pool area which was not over crowded and was a good place to relax, have a swim and play table tennis if you got bored. Only downside was the service in the restaurant / pool...

Stayed here for a week and was lovely. 5 minutes from the lake, staff were friendly and prices were great. Perfect to just relax around the pool or as a base to go on adventures. Ferry pick-up point just at the bottom of the road too.

Stayed overnight with my daughter. The room was way too small but with air conditioner and TV. Clean and comfortable as a whole. Breakfast had modest range of choice, but good. The lady at the front desk was kind and efficient.
