We booked a late offer one night stay here, and it proved to be a great choice. We had one of the rooms in the main building, so no balcony or lake view (next time) but the room was spacious, modern and very comfortable, with a lovely shower. We had dinner at the hotel, service was a little slow as there was a ball on in the function suite, but we didn't mind this, and the staff couldn't do enough for us. I don't eat dairy, so for dessert, instead of the usual boring fresh fruit salad, I was offered a choice of about 5 dishes, and opted for a delicious meringue with fresh berries. Breakfast choices were excellent. The Huntsman's Bar, which we didn't have time to linger in, has lovely views over the lake, and reception can give you a map of short and longer walks from the hotel. A lovely but all too brief stay.
