A place surrounded by beautiful nature. Great walks at the Victoria lake. This place is always alive, many guests, children. Polite staff. I loved breakfasts and dinners in the outside restaurant, so pretty. Happy to return anytime.

Went out with some friends and enjoyed the swimming at their Olympic Size pool, they don't allow day visits to access another infinity pool they have over looking the lake. The services are good, staff is smiling. One can easily spend full day at the pool enjoying swimming, gymnasium, steam & sauna included in the prices. Also visited few rooms...
