Good 6.0
The room was comfortable and clear. It was a bit small for a 3 person accomodation

Great Spot, Handy Location
Hotel really good value. It has a cafe attached which was beneficial. A gym would be nice, but coped without for a few days. Road noise always a pain if you at front. Looked double glazed but not sure it worked. Staff friendly. Rooms clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay there again.

Exceptional 10.0
We had an excellent stay. Really convenient to town with an easy 30 minute walk along the lake it is a good chance to walk off your meal.

Not like the pictures
The outside of the hotel was very stylish and the reception and lobby equally so. My friend and I were very disappointed when we saw our room as it looked nothing like the picture advertised for it. The room was very small. Two bedside lamps were provided but one side didn't have a power point so it couldn't be plugged in which was pointless. The net curtains were on the outside which made it awkward to discreetly open the curtains in the morning as we overlooked the entrance to another hotel. The shower had appalling water pressure and the base of the shower was scratched and marked. While the service was great, seeing the pictures and then the real thing made for an underwhelming experience.

Very good 8.0
Air conditioning unit above the bed dripped on the bed making it wet. Otherwise a nice property.
