We were a party of 6, in 3 twin bed rooms from May 29th to June 3rd. 2 rooms were quite OK but the 3rd was so small and facing a wall that we complained and after much begging were given a half lakeview one (3rd floor). It was unusually cold (20º less than normal) but the heating was off and the best they did was giving us very old and not so efficient small heaters. The inroom TV hotel services account gave each day a different and wrong total so we spent every morning half an hour waiting anc complaining to a most untypical Assistant Manager... no french, no spanish speaking. The public rooms are nice but not gorgeous. Best assets: housekkeping maids and buffet breakfast.
