We stayed here for a week at the beginning of October 2013, as part of a Shearings holiday. We paid £108 extra to Shearings for an upgraded room on the front, overlooking the lake and the railway! The railway was not a problem, as trains do not run in the middle of the night. The road is quiet, as it is only very local traffic.
The room we had was modernised, as many are now. The mattresses were a little firm, but OK for a good sleep. The room was cleaned to a high standard.
The food throughout the stay was excellent with ample portions, and seconds if required! Food is always freshly prepared by a good chef, and plates are always very hot. They dealt with a full coach load very efficiently, and always with a smile. The glasses, cutlery and napkins were always spotless. Breakfast had a good range of stuff, and efficiently laid out.
Adapters for the weird Swiss plugs were freely available at reception. Lisa & Hans are usually on hand to help.
The only negative is that there is a large mark up on wines for meals, although the local beer was OK. However, there was always the supermarket!
Overall, an excellent package with Shearings, a shame this lovely place it is not closer to home!
