Have stayed several times, always suprler friendly. Room is always warm and clean. Netflix option on TV is great for nighttime. The curtains do a fab job on keeping the light out in the morning. Views once you open those curtains are apectacular!

Property was very new but with limited facilities. The dining room was also closed so no opportunity for us to sample their menu.

Although the view was of the lake there were buildings in front that were not pleasant to look at. Also the hotel was not well marked and although we used google maps it only had a very small sign to bring us to the reception
