    Very good 8.0
    We stayed there two nights. The staff is very good and friendly. What I need mentioned is there are private thermal spa in several rooms and lake view at outside deck. That is wonderful! And the location is great as well.Only the bed cover in main bedroom got a little bit humid. Anyway all the other are very good, if possible I still come back,
