Positive Reviews

Staff is top notch

Guests point to the care and attention displayed by the hotel staff as one of the most positive parts of their experience at this property. Visitors are made to feel like royalty by employees, who consistently go above and beyond to make every stay memorable.

The view is sublime

The location is one guests say cannot be beat, especially for those who want to take in the beautiful, breathtaking vista of the region's famed lakes. Even those who do not choose a lakeside room can still enjoy the view from the restaurant or other locations around the hotel. Guests who stay here say the view alone is worth the trip.

Spa daze

Those who visit the hotel's famous spa state that it is one of the highlights of their stay. The pool is reportedly available to all guests within the spa area. Meanwhile, the outdoor hot tub, with its view of the grounds, proves to be another favourite with guests, allowing visitors to relax in a magical setting.

Negative Reviews

Food woes

Though there are many different dining options at the hotel, guests are underwhelmed by the food on offer, especially in the case of the breakfast buffet. Reports also suggest that there is only one fine dining option, and guests are not made aware ahead of time if the restaurant will be closed during their stay.

Breakfast Might Be Disappointing.

Guests sometimes weren't thrilled about the breakfasts. Many of them admitted that the taste didn't meet their expectations. Also, some commented that the breakfast buffet area can get a little crowded and seem disorganised.

Some Staff Members Are Snooty.

Sometimes, guests said they received less-than-warm treatment from members of staff. Although that behaviour was usually not displayed by everyone a guest encountered, it was enough to make a negative impression.
