Back for another visit, out third so it can't be bad. Great service, great food and first-class staff. But if you don't like stairs ask for an accessable room - ground floor! Very kids-friendly but watch the main road between hotel and lake - IMPOSSIBLE to cross at times.

We had an amazing time at Jenny and Ste's evening reception. We arrived Sunday afternoon and stayed one night. Staff were superb. Very attentive and really friendly. Room and food were excellent (especially the breakfast buffet!). Such a lovely change to visit a hotel with real character, rather than the carbon-copy, soulless 'chain' hotels. One of the best hotels we've...
