We first visited in September 2013, and found we couldn't stay away so returned for Easter 2014. The hotel remains in our top ten of all time. Our Deluxe Lake View room was spacious and comfortable, and well worth the premium. The top tip if to wake up early and look out towards the lake for excellent red deer sightings.
The hotel is full of old world charm, making a lot of its interesting history with displays of old pictures and documents which brings to life the historic appeal of the place.
The food was excellent. The main restaurant for dinner is luxury dining, but is good value, and we appreciated the dedicated vegetarian menu. - A few changes to the menu would have been welcome over a 4 night stay. The food in the bar area is also high quality and reasonably priced, so we saw no need to head into the town where prices looked similar.
The weather was kind during our stay, but regardless of rain or shine the outdoor hot tub and the sauna were well worth a visit.
