Lovely hotel with good facilities. Staff attentive and room cleanliness good.
Great location for visiting the local area and islands. Views exceptional if you are over looking the lake. Lovely promenades both ways to the villages and close to ferry pickups.
We stayed at the Bristol knowing it was expensive but were disappointed at the cost of eating there. 25€ for breakfast and very expensive evening meals and drinks. However we were able to eat out in the town. Perhaps if the bar prices were cheaper there would be more people drinking and there would be more atmosphere.
Bathroom shower leaked onto the floor making it slippery.
A grand old hotel but could do with a little updating now.
I think for the price we paid I was a little disappointed.
