Myself and my husband stayed here for one night. I had booked the room via email and was disappointed that I couldn't get a lake view room. Having accepted this the hotel was very busy when we were there but I felt it wasn't a 5 star experience. The room was not luxurious and no air conditioning so we needed... More

This hotel is 5 star in every way. The location, the views, the food, the staff, the leisure facilities and the appearance of the building itself, inside and out. The pool area with views of lake and mountains is excellent, even more so when you're lucky enough to get good weather. The breakfast is excellent with a great choice and... More

Breakfast is superb with everything you can think of on offer, and if you're lucky enough to get a window table... More
