Attended a work reunion at this hotel over Easter. Great venue with fantastic food with a buffet style meal and a good range of dishes, and very friendly and helpful staff. Definitely recommend it as a function venue,

The hotel is comfortable and in a good lakefront location. However its staff are the real attraction! Every single member of staff we met was extremely helpful. The reception and bar staff were especially kind and gave our young son VIP treatment....he loved staying here! Nothing was too much trouble and they even managed to serve a delicious dinner during a whole town power cut. I can't recommend this hotel enough if you are travelling as a family.

Nothing to say much as the hotel is very standard hotel. It's a big hotel may be the biggest in this area as not much of choices in this small town. Check in was quick. Rooms are quite dated and so traditional it is time to renovated. Breakfast room is big and lots of tour group at early morning so we avoid and come later.

Stayed here for 2nights in a 2bedroom villa, very quiet location by the lake. Easy walk into town. Room very clean, modern bathroom & good heating. Self service laundry onsite, which as very handy. Would recommend for families.
