    This hotel was extremely overpriced. Yes, it's close to the lake, and there is an "eat street" nearby, but other than that, it was poor for the price. The tv was old and small, and had no reception, the carpets had stains, and the pillows...More

    This Hotel has everything you need. Staff and the decor are very good. House Bar, pools and gym are very good. My only critical is that the carpet needs replacing. Location is a very short distance to the lake and Eat STREAT.
