Awesome location, nice room
Great location on the lake front. Amazing view. Comfortable and clean. Good size. We booked a junior king suite with lake view. It was an upstairs unit on the lake. Worth paying the extra for this room type. We thought the restaurant was pricey, so we didn’t eat in. Easy and short drive into town where there are lots of options. You had to book and get a key from reception to use the grotto spa, which put us off. We couldn’t even have a quick look to see if we’d like to use it, since it was locked. But we made use of the spa bath in our room.

8/10 Very good

Comfortable and clean, service good, meals good, but 2 door locks were broken and WIFI was so intermittent and weak that it may as well have been non-existant. Reported the problems soon after arriving. Locks were fixed, but WIFI wasn't. Nice location. Disappointed.
