The room is very well laid out and spacious, the staff are very friendly and chatty without being obtrusive, just right. The menu is well thought out and very well cooked. All in all a very pleasant evening.

Had 2 meals here during recent stay at hotel. The food was exceptional both times and the servings very generous. A whole seabass took quite a bit of eating. Service discreet and prompt. Nice atmosphere with some families and small children during half term week....More

Fillet steak was just lovely! Atmosphere was very relaxed on an evening. Breakfast was very good and kept us filled up and fueled for exploring the lakes!
