Don't be put off by the 1960 Spanish style facade. Inside is another matter - nearly all the bedrooms and public areas have been totally renovated to an extremely high standard - modern luxury with a traditional feel. Lake views can be enjoyed from most areas. We upgraded to a first floor room for greater privacy as the pathway ran in front of the ground floor. Our room was very large and decorated in muted shades with beautiful linens, soft furnishings and carpets. The room boasted a 42" plasma TV.
There was more than enough storage space and the bathroom was huge with a separate shower and large spa bath - wonderfully soothing after much walking.
The food was was superb and served in relaxing surroundings overlooking the lake.
The meal on Christmas night was five plus courses, each one perfection and not a Christmas turkey in sight. All the staff were friendly, helpful and worked hard to make this a memorable stay.
