We stayed in the two bedroom for one night. It was very clean and right across from the lake. It was quite cold when we arrived and took Some time for the room to heat up. Electric blankets on the bed helped.

We had a lovely room on the top floor with a fantastic view of the lake from the balcony. The room was spacious and very clean. The hotel was well situated and just a short walk to the shops and restaurants.
