This review is based on a three night stay we booked for January 2013. We only stayed for two of the nights as the noise and lack of comfort of the room in the evenings made the stay less than the treat we were expecting. We had been very much looking forward to the stay in the suite which has its own roof terrace with stunning views over the lake, a jaccuzi and plentiful seating. The day times were idyllic, sitting outside with the views and having so much space to ourselves. The evenings and night times were less idyllic.
As we were staying in January, once the sun went down, it was too cold to sit out comfortably, however there was nowhere to be comfortable inside the suite. Most of the suite inside is taken up with a tiny, freezing plunge pool that we had to have the pump turned off from in order to sleep. The room is right next to the lift shaft which was very noisy. Adding to the noise was the kitchen / restaurant phone right outside and the washing up area by the restaurant. It was not relaxing in the evenings, and the noise continued into the night.
We ate in the restaurant several times. The food was not good - particularly the western options. There are much better options nearby.
We loved the location and found it easy to walk around from the hotel as it was near all the main sites, but I could never recommend the hotel. The service was poor. Reception were uninterested, and the service in the restaurant was extremely slow. When we checked out a day early, no one asked us why, and by that time we were just glad to get out.
