Would have been 4 star in its day - but definitely 3 star plus today. Management, reception and wait staff all very friendly and multilingual. Breakfast buffet was huge, and included in our room rate. Our first floor room turned out to be self catering. Although devoid of cutlery and appliances, there was plenty of crockery and glassware, plus a fridge and two electric hot plates. Located at the rear of the hotel, our balcony looked out over a very leafy and quite street. Our spacious room was divided into kitchenette, bathroom, bedroom and lounge/dining area - more than adequate for our 4 day stay. From our observation, the rooms at the front of the hotel (overlooking the lake) are grander. A seven minute walk from the train station, close to ferries and restaurants, on the lake edge and away from town centre noise - suited me beautifully.
