We got the lake view double room. Has a beautiful outlook of the lake and the snow capped mountains. The room was VERY CLEAN. The sheets were crisp and like brand new. The room was cleaned daily. They even tidied up some of our stuff that was on the floor. We got the accommodation on special with breakfast included. Breakfast was yummy. Good selection. (4 types cereals, fruit, preserves, usual bacon, eggs, hash brown, sausages, croissants etc..) Staff were attentive, helpful and friendly. They have a spa bath which we didn't end up using but staff told us that it was available anyway if we want it. There is a tennis court which we did use. Upon indicating to the staff that we wanted to play tennis, they set up the net immediately and provided us with rackets and stuff. Hard to fault the place. We booked our ticket online and the conditions indicated that you cannot change booking but as our schedule changed suddenly, we rung them and requested for the dates to be moved earlier and they readily changed it for us. No dramas. No extra cost. For a budget price, i think we got a really good deal. The only thing that I picked up when we were staying there was that the radio alarm clock wasn't working but since we requested a wake up call it didn't really pose a problem to us and the bathroom door was hard to shut. It's also a bit far from the city centre but we weren't too bothered about it as it only took about 5-10 mins drive. If you want to go drinking in town though, might be inconvenient as will be needing a taxi. That's it. Overall it was a positive experience. We would be staying here again. definitely.
