Our room was at the back of the hotel which had decent views of the mountains. Although very compact (lost count of the number of times we banged our shins in the corner of the bed) it was very clean and well maintained. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room so we brought our own travel kettle after reading a previous review. Wifi had a decent enough signal for what we wanted.
Staff were very friendly and polite. Restaurant area was clean and tidy and your room was allocated a table which was yours for the duration of your stay. I found the food to be generally good but my wife found it not to her taste on occasions (beef too raw for example). All drinks at dinner are charged to your room which you sign for at the table.
We decided to pay up with our bar bill 2 days before the end of our stay and we were surprised to find out there was nothing to pay! We do d not know that we had €150 credit to our room for early booking (€75 per person ). This was not mentioned when we booked with the travel agent or when we checked in the hotel. This was a big surprise as up till that point, we were paying for our bar drinks as we got them but could have been charging them to the room credit.
Bar drinks (my wife's cocktails) were very well made and reasonably priced compared to other places around town.
From the the hotel, is a bit of a hike (30mins) to the old town/harbour but is situated right near a nice marina. It is best to walk along the lake front from the marina to the old town as the view is beautiful and seems to take half the time although slightly longer. We never used the small pool much but didn't have any trouble finding a sun lounger when we did. Be aware, there is no shallow end to the pool for children. However, it's more of an adults hotel. There was free bike hire for residents but we never got round to doing that.
All in all, a nice hotel and we had a good time. They also made us a packed breakfast as we left before the 7:00 am.
PS, we managed to rescue the €150 credit situation with some serious drinking in the last 2 days.
