I stayed in a room right next to a function center with a loud party, I’m a pretty relaxed guy but honestly that room shouldn’t have been rented, the noise was horrendous, this is the first time I have ever left a negative review anywhere

Lovely view of the lake. Reception staff very welcoming. Exiting / reversing from individual car space can be tricky due to design of car park.
