We stayed here for the Roots & Blues Festival, which was close by (there was a free shuttle bus as well). Very helpful and friendly staff who were well into the spirit of the festival. A lot of the performers were staying here (including one of our group) and everyone was in a party spirit. A good chance to meet with the artists 'off piste' and listen to some amazing impromptu gigs in the foyer. Right on the lake, the views are breathtaking and there was an osprey nest right outside our window - what a bonus! The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Although there was a balcony, there was no access from our room which was a bit disappointing and we could only open the window a tiny bit (prefer 'real air' to aircon). Bed was comfy though.
There is only one elevator in this hotel, which is used by both guests and housekeeping, so it's very, very slow. The hotel isn't very high, thank goodness, so the stairs down was the only way to get anywhere quickly. Not much the hotel can do about this I guess.
The other downer was the restaurant - where were all the breakfast staff? The must have know they would be nearly full, yet the poor servers were run ragged trying to do their job. On the first morning there were only two of them for a practically full restaurant. Was slight better the other two mornings, but not much (one of the servers had to give up her day off to come in). Better planning needed here. Breakfasts were very hearty and there was a good choice - but as per comments above, took quite a time.
Lovely walks in the area and plenty of nature to see. Indoor/outdoor pool was great and not busy at all. Didn't have time to try the other amenties, but there was a large gym as well as a very reasonably priced spa.
