The Rees has all the things you would expect of a 5 star hotel - excellent views, good food and wine and lovely decor etc but the staff are all without exception what makes it. Lots of local intel and happy to help. The location just above the Frankton walk is a real bonus - an easy walk into town around the lake.

We stayed in the 2bed lakefront penthouse apartment. Absolutely gorgeous accommodation. Our stay was so peaceful and relaxing. The staff - from check-in, to the coffee maker and bar tender, through to the lovely ladies who came in to clean and offer a turn-down service - were all friendly and professional. We had a wonderful stay and will most definitely be coming back in the future.
