We stayed for 6 nights and had rooms on the 3rd and 4th floor facing the lake(just to confuse you be aware that the 4 th floor is the 5th floor in the second set of lifts).
The view was magnificent and the location in relation to the town centre was good(a ten minute casual walk).
We stayed in two 2x2 rooms with great balconies and lounge kitchen area but beware the couple who has to stay in the second bedroom which is dark(in one case no window and the other opened to the common area so basically had to keep the curtains closed all the time) and smaller than the main bedrooms which had views out to the lake.
The breakfast was basic continental and the hot was $10pppd extra. Unfortunately the eggs were usually cold and the breakfast room also had no window so was very dungeon like. The hot selection appeared to run out regularly. The staff were friendly but disorganised.
While we were there they were renovating the outside of the upper rooms which you access by a separate lift so there was a lot of scaffolding again not very aesthetically pleasing.
Overall as we bagged the front (good) room an average rating. I think the couple who had to take the second room might have rated their experience differently.
