Clean and tidy accommodation in a great location. Nice big spa bath. The bed was hard but still very comfortable. I would definitely go back in the summer season and try out there awesome looking pool.

We stayed in one of the spa rooms, which was excellent, and included a large sitting area, table and chairs, kitchenette and bathroom with a large spa bath as well as a balcony with seating. We had a fantastic view over the lake too. The hosts were helpful and friendly-we liked it so much we booked for an extra night!
