The hotel is located right on the waterfront with only the bike/walking/running path between our room's patio and the water. I loved the fact that we weren't right in the middle of town - especially during the busy summer season. We walked the mile or so to town along the bike path for shopping, site seeing and other activities, and swam in the lake just 50 feet from our patio. Excellent location for runners/walkers and open water swimmers (the pool is too short for lap swimming)!
We enjoyed some of the pubs in town, but returned for meals to the hotel's excellent Edgewater Restaurant. Great service, great food, and great sunset views. There is a small convenience store/gas station about one block away for sodas (no beer!!) and snacks.
The only (minor) grievances are that the room was a bit small and the air conditioning in the restaurant and bar was not adequate (and I enjoy hot weather!).
