Having booked the hotel as part of our summer holiday for this year, then reading the reviews afterwards, I was apprehensive about what I might find - however I was pleasantly surprised. We booked to stay in a feature double room (room 23) and the room was very large with an excellent bathroom, complete with roll top free standing bath and seperate shower unit. The bathroom was huge and very nicely decorated as well as being really clean. The bedroom was again a very large size with a side view of the lake, however we would always prefer to have a spacious room as opposed to a view so this didn't bother us. The only complaint I would have with the room was that the furniture (wardrobe, side tables etc) were a little shabby and tired looking, however the bed was large and extremely comfortable which made up for this.
We booked for room and breakfast, and the breakfasts were lavish with plenty of choice, both with the hot and cold selections. Food at the hotel is expensive both at the bar and the main restaurant however the food was to a high standard, but do be be prepared to pay for this. We used the Leisure Club and found that it was very busy especially the pool so you could not do any serious swimming. The outdoor hottub, sauna and steam rooms were nice but again small so they did get crowded. The changing rooms are also small and can become very busy which was disappointing but as we went over the school summer holidays this was to be expected.
Overall a nice hotel (if a little expensive) attentive staff, generally well maintained but some furniture is dated and shabby and so this could do with a facelift in the near future - however the standard and size of the bedroom made up for all the short comings - the extra cost for a feature double with fabulous bathroom was worth the extra money paid - and I would recommend this hotel to a friend after our stay, especially room 23!
