The location cannot be surpassed and the view from the hotel rooms facing the lake are magnificent. Walks are great and there is plenty to see and do.
That said, the hotel needs a bit of wake up call. We stayed in standard room facing the lake, the decor needs updating, the window frames replacing - very windy and you certainly feel the draught. Lighting is poor and the heating inadequate - but these pale into insignificance when considering the bathroom. What a disaster! The whole room needs to be scrapped, circa 1980 at a guess. Shower did not work at all,only managed to get cold water, bath tucked into corner with no light and nice draught from nearby window. No storage,one tiny shelf for everything, carpeted throughout - not a good idea. Heating inadequate.
To add insult to injury during our stay water went off - not the hotel's fault apparently but no-one contacted us, no information. Billions of gallons to look at through the window but nothing coming out the taps! Hotel food is very average - sprouts still served with the mixed veg!
Pub is terrible and food there awful. beer just as good! Cold, horrible place. Could be improved with ball and chain.
All in all a great deal of improvement required but the views are stunning and the location breathtaking. Just a pity about the hotel really, could be so much better.
