The hotel is a new construction built into the lake: several small buildings on top of the water. The result is an unusual Intercontinental hotel in a very peaceful and nice place. My room was in one of the pavilions on the lake and it was quite large and nice. Staff is very kind and the breakfast is extremely rich. A couple of small issues (ceiling shower not working and the bar loose my order) did not spoil the staying but they show that there is room to improve.
Moreover the WiFi should be extended to all rooms, whereas now it is only available in the common areas (wired connection in the rooms).
