    We had afternoon tea on the balcony. The view over the lake is very nice. We had scones( best ever) and cheese platters with drinks. The staff are very good and professional. The hotel is very well appointed inside. It is also very popular.

    Sorry, just seen this and probably too late! Don't know the name but it was just along the road, past the shops.

    The pool is available for non-residents, including children but you will have to purchase a day pass at the reception of the spa.
