An impressive, modern, lakeside hotel at the heart of the lovely, little, historic town of Kingston.
The hotel scores on:
1 its ideal location, right on the lake and only a short walk/taxi ride from the town centre.
2 its rooms: modern, comfortable, and a good size. Mine (and I assume mine was typical) had a kitchenette.
3 last, but by no means least, the welcome: the receptionist (David, if I recall) was excellent: he could hardly have been more helpful.
Main downside was the bar. In the evening I went in to peruse the menu and was treated to a long recitation of items that were NOT available: apparently the hotel was switching to a new menu the following day. It is a good idea to rotate menus, but why should guests who stay during the changeover fall between the gap? Hopefully this was a temporary glitch.
Also, the breakfast area is relatively small for such a big hotel. If the hotel is full (as it was when I stayed) the area gets very crowded (though the breakfast stall coped well and were friendly). The hotel might want to rethink the breakfast geography.
Finally, theres a very good indoor pool and hot tub. Changing facilities would be an idea, though.
All in all, I would very happily stay again.
