I've now stayed at this hotel 6 times and enjoyed most of my visits. I do find that the experience can depend on the room you're allocated as some of these feel far better value for money than others. Many are lovely and on the occasion that we were upgraded to a huge room with sofas and lake views on 2 sides, our stay was amazing. On two occasions though I've felt disappointed upon walking into our allotted room - finding it pokey and a little shabby. My favourite part of the hotel is the lounge where it's possible to while away several peaceful and self indulgent hours ordering coffee or hot chocolate, whilst cosied up in a lovely arm chair reading a book and looking up every once in a while to take in the beautiful lake views. The food has always been enjoyable - with a gorgeous lakeside restaurant.
