A cute little place to stay.
A lovely little resort, just what i needed for a quick stay, although you could get comfy with a cafe now on site. Lovely Host welcoming us in. It has been done up since i stayed there last, love the Thermal spa was just what i needed after a week of skiing. You can hear the cars from the main road, but didn't bother us too much. Wifi wasn't that strong, which frustrated our 2 teenagers, and it didn't have Sky TV, which annoyed my Husband hehe.

2 Nights Away
It was overall a great 2 night getaway. It was close to the Center of town, close enough to walk, which we did. The staff were friendly, the place was clean and tidy, the only issue I had was the spa area was full of cobwebs and spiders were crawling everywhere, and there were a few flies that we couldn't get rid of. I also would have preferred a room at the back as we we right in the front - no.1 - and road traffic was loud.

Basic, clean and comfortable.
A quirky wee place. Older style. Very steep stairs to the bedrooms. Bathroom downstairs so those needing to go to the loo at night had to be careful. The private pool was an interesting experience. Lovely gardens, so would be a great place for families. Good location. View of the lake from one bedroom window! Friendly staff.

Spa and relaxation
When we checked in we were given a local map and information about what to see in the area. Very comfortable accommodation in good condition and very clean. Not your typical motel layout but interesting. Private spa bath is a nice touch.

Perfect get away
We were very pleased with our stay. Staff went out of their way to make sure we had just the right room and that everything was perfect. The private pools were a huge hit and just what we needed after a day of travel.. We would go back again for sure.

What bliss after a long working week, to enjoy a glass of wine and a soak in our own private hot pool which we could fill to just the right temperature. We were welcomed warmly and the unit was quiet, clean and comfortable.
