Indeed, this hotel may be a bit on the expensive side but then, you get a lot in return.
The premises are very beautiful and well kept, great views over the lake, nice pool area, excellent food,.... Service is of a high standard, especially in the restaurant and bar.
The only negative is that not all rooms seems to have balconies. We were first given a room next to reception (great view, but no balcony) and asked to change (I am a light sleeper...). Our next room which was a bit further on the corridor was truly gorgeous: spacious, separate sitting area, wonderful views, ... Exactly what we wanted. So, I would say, make sure you ask for a room with a balcony (as far as I can remember there is no price difference, but we felt there was a big difference in experience).
I would certainly recommend this hotel and would not doubt to go back.
