Lake front views. Gables
Great location, lake front views, recently renovated. Excellent service. The only issue was the shower was extremely loud when in use. We joaked you need earmuffs to take a shower.

Great hotel
This is a lovely hotel with a great view and location. The king room overlooking the lake was top notch and quite a self contained little apartment. The hosts Peter and Penny are friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

Amazing place.Pity there was no spa pool as stated
Beautiful location, very clean and staff incredibly friendly and helpful. The only drawback was online i booked a room with a spa pool to arrive and find it was only a whirlpool. No bubbles no jets just hot water slowly moving around. This was very disappointing due to the very high cost. Overall though an excellent place to stay and i will highly recommend it...

Best Shower
Lovely lake view. Clean room. Kitchenette and accessories in great condition. Having a dish washer is very considerate. Private hot pool is nice. Shower is the best (out of sample size of around 100 places): Cleanliness --- Very Pressure --- Very high, easily adjustable, continuous, and very stable Temperature --- Very high, easily adjustable, continuous, and very stable Room price is reasonable. This is the place I won't have a doubt recommending to others.
