Loved the view of the lake and the proximity of the lake. Would have loved a heat pump / aircon.

Location was amazing. The lake shore was metres away with great views. Quote special. Quiet, clean and well appointed Outside steps made movement a little difficult for more elderly - needed extra attention but not a reason not to stay here.

Fantastic location and the room was spotless. Only criticism is about the noisy water pipes through the night.
