Stayed in this hotel recently and can safely say we have never had a better experience from start to finish.. From check in to check out, the hotel and their amazing staff had us feeling like we belonged there as opposed to be being short term guests. Breakfast in Harvey's point was by far the best I have had anywhere...

Fabulous hotel. Vey smooth check in friendly receptionist. Lovely setting beside the lake. We stayed for 2 nights and dined in the restaurant on one of those nights. Food was very tasty and beautifully presented. The weather may not have been great but that did not spoil our stay. Loved our break here.
