My boyfriend surprised me with a trip here for valentines 2014.
We have checked in on the 12th of febuary and checked out on the 14th.
I found the late check in very unusual, but it all worked out. We stayed in the deluxe lake view room with 2 queen beds because i really wanted the lake view and they did not have anymore with only one king. Our room had a few downs such as the other queen bed smelt very dirty and that the glasses in our bathroom sink were BOTH DIRTY. We had a complimentary dinner at peak fine that came with the package, we started off with the pork belly and also the steamed clams and mussels which was amazing! Moving on to the entrees, we have both gotten the steak but i have gotten the steak with the bernaisse sauce and my bf got the mushroom dijon. The steak was 'OK' i would get a more flavourful one at The Keg, so nothing special. The desserts we had were the triple sorbet and the apple strudel which was amazing, and the sorbet was ok. Over all, the menu at peak fine was ok, not much of a selection!
For breakfast, the selection wasn't really great so i did not come down for breakfast often.
KURSPA, was beyond amazing, it is so beautiful. And we had booked the Oasis for 2 Empress sissi, it was so relaxing though i swear it was less that 90 minutes. There are 9 different saunas so totally check them out!
One thing i noticed is that the room service does come very slow EXAMPLE: i had asked for 2 pillows and they did not come till 2 hours later and this was only around 9pm.
Over all it was a great stay! though, i would not eat at peak fine and try the different restaurants they have in the city.
