We stayed on a KGB deal so were expecting a naff room but we were upgraded in error and got a lake view! This meant we had a brilliant value for money break. Room was lovely, great bed and shower, extremely clean and a beautiful view. The whole place was quiet and relaxing, especially the terrace. The staff were really nice, just a bit thin on the ground, which meant there were always dirty glasses hanging around on the terrace.
On the down side, the restaurant food was a total disappointment. Quite pricey, we were expecting good quality and it was not. It also looked thrown together, without much thought, so we walked into the village the following evening for dinner. The breakfast was very lacklustre too. We also had a spa treatment which was sort of fun (my partner would say torture) but the mud got in my eye and it was sore all night. Apparently I should have been told not to put it on my face (not my experience elsewhere).
Looking at the 'normal' rates for this hotel, we don't think it's worth what they ask, but if you can get some kind of deal (which they seem to offer regularly according to these reviews) then I would definitely return. And eat out.
