“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

I had to comment after reading the comment on here which slated this hotel. I feel it was unjust as the hotel is no way that bad. We have just returned from the hotel and it was fine. The food was always good , not huge choice at dinner but always 2 choices of main, always a different veggie option every day for those who were vegetarian. The soup was very nice and salad ok. Yes the showering was a problem and the rooms were cold, but when you look at what you pay compared to other hotels it was excellent vaue. The family are all very nice and friendly. Its only 3 star but its half the cost of other hotels, so really you get what you pay for. Its in an excellent positon, and all the guest were nice and friendly. If you want 4* luxury then this is not the hotel for you.

Room Tip: Front rooms overlooking pool and if you want wifi access you need the 1st or 2nd floor,.

Stayed at Leifer in Sept 2013. Hotel is scruffy and run down has obviously not seen any investment for years. Our room on third floor was unheated and damp, our request for heating system to be turned on was ignored by Maria who has a "selective understanding" of English. Next problem was intermittent water (hot and cold) throughout the day but total drought at peak times!
When queried with staff we were told that too many people were having a wash (Third world or what!)
Dining room had all the charm of a bus station cafe, food was plain and boring, but OK if you like chips and cauliflower soup. Frank the chef/owner had the endearing habit of serving up food from plastic washing up bowls in the restaurant dressed in a scruffy tea shirt with jogging pants and trainers. This is certainly a place to keep away from if you value comfort and even reasonable food. Surprisingly, the Hotel is still used by Thompson and Crystal which cannot be doing their reputations much good. I believe the present owners are finishing and not a moment too soon. Any person who rates this place must have extremely low standards or be a mate of the owners. Any discerning holidaymaker should GIVE THE LEIFER A VERY WIDE BERTH!

Room Tip: if you want a good room at this location use Hotel Margaretta next door!

This hotel gives the impression it could do with a refurbishment, but that could easily ruin it's character or make it unaffordable. It was clean, comfortable and in a fantastic location with a lakeside garden. Frank and Maria were really friendly and welcoming, the dinner choice was not great on half board, but well cooked in general. The breakfast buffet was very good and the bar cosy. All in all, we had a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: The front rooms have fantastic views

Just returned today from the leifer, food, hospitality, cleanliness and view were excellent, the owners were very kind and helpful, and always spoke to everyone at every meal. The only thing I could fault the hotel on is the old wooden framed single beds in our room, they were comfortable, but very noisy if you turned over in the night and this sometimes woke us up. Only other comment I heard was that the hot water pressure in the shower sometimes dropped rapidly. The location of the hotel to the town, mountain railway and boat station was great.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a lake view as these also have a balcony.

Having just returned from this hotel and reading reviews from other people, we would just like to say that Marie and frank gave us a lovely holiday, food was great and room was cleaned every day to a high standard. Couple of minutes walk from the village and a minute from the cog railway. We would go back again tour reps in this resort are very friendly trips well organised and they are very knowledgable

Room Tip: If possible choose a lake view for the scenery alone

This pretty hotel reminds me of rustic log cabins where we vacationed as kids. Only here the views kept me entranced, especially in the Leifer's peaceful garden at the lake or up on our hotel balcony. This charming little hotel had everything we needed, and was quiet, cozy, clean, and we were well fed and looked after. The kind, helpful and hard working owners/staff offer excellent service and value for money. It's a short walk into town, and there were also interesting walks and excursions if you go with Thomsons/Crystal Holidays. But if you just want to chill out and experience peace surrounded by beauty and majestic nature scenes, do come here and find yourself unwinding in a truly beautiful setting. Lovely, warm people are here. It's a lovely, friendly place and I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you can, try to get a room with a balcony overlooking the lake. It's so beautiful.
