The pool and spa had small worms so didn't go in. The breakfast was very good but they ran out of chocolate crossonts. The room was very clean and tidy with lots of space, the pillows were cheap so wasent very good sleep.

Top service, comfortable and well appointed room. Happy 60th birthday chocolates waiting in room on arrival. Restaurant service and dinner was amazing. The personal touch of Happy Birthday made it even more special. Desserts were amazing.

The bedroom had a separate balcony also overlooking the lake and mountains beyond. They had a nice pool and exercise room. The property is adjacent to... More

The view from our 1 BR suite was very nice and spacious. Hotel provides fresh milk on demand and provides ample amount promptly. The keycard do not work sometimes and it is a hassle to go back to the reception which was a distance away to exchange. Met another couple with the same issue. Time to change the lock system....

Because of the "resort" layout, it is necessary to walk outside quite a distance to get to the restaurant or reception. On a cold winter night this is not pleasant, and any room service can result on cold food or coffee. We had a real problem with room service breakfast because of this.
