Great night's sleep

Travellers find that the excellent soundproofing is one of the many reasons they are able to get such a sound night's sleep. The rooms also have such a relaxing ambience, which helps them to relax and unwind easily, but the main reason that travellers sleep so well, is because of the superior comfort of the beds. What's more, they rave about the high quality of the linens too.

Staff make the stay even better

Staff are friendly, easy to chat to, and will go out of their way when guests need something. Checking in is found to be effortless, and reviews indicate that the staff and management team will even allow early check-in's without applying a penalty. They are also very knowledgable about the area, and will gladly assist with maps and a list of things to do. Many travellers are keen to come after such a positive experience.

Fabulous views

With most of the rooms offering views of the lake and mountain ranges, guests find they can spend hours on the balcony admiring the magical sights. Even though the day and night views are totally different, they are considered to be equally beautiful, making the trip pretty great value for money overall.
