Rated 5 out of 5.
This hotel was far better than our expectations. We loved its location and the staff were very friendly and so helpful through-out our stay. Our compliments to the chef who provided an excellent varity of food which was very tasty. If we are heading for the lakes again this hotel will be top of the list and we will be highly recommending this hotel to all our friends....
