I think this is probably a good choice if booking a conference, wedding or family reunion.
As a hotel, it's disappointing. Our room was on the ground floor, facing the indoor pool and hot tub area. As a consequence, our room was quite dark, even with all the lights on. As there are a lot of rooms facing inwards, you might want to check if your room will get any natural light. The 2nd floor rooms might be better.
The centre does seem in need of some renovation. For example, there are very few luggage carts and the doorways are quite narrow and awkward to negotiate if you happen to be trying to lug one through by yourself. They havent installed any self opeing doors yet, so disabled access might be equally challenging. The corridors (paint and carpet) were in need of some TLC.
We also visited the Ox Head Tavern, thinking of eating there, but changed our minds as there was a strong smell of old cooking oil permeating the inside dining area and the menu was not very interesting..... The outside area may have been a better choice, but it was very hot. The location is pretty, right on the lake's edge.
The bar staff in the hotel were friendly and attentive. The reception staff at checkout could be more engaging. I felt like I had been suddenly covered with a cloak of invisibility when I approached the counter.
