“One of the best!”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Anything I say cannot describe this place!

The room was beautifully decorated, the staff was very polite and the view was amazing!

The spa is amazing too! They have really paid attention to detail!

The food was absolutely perfect! The only thing that bugged me was the chocolate mousse which had a little too much alcohol for my taste but to each his own.

The only - somewhat - downside is that it is not in a very central location but if you don't mind walking, like me, then you will fall in love with the place!

We upgraded to an Executive room with private pool - ground floor, so limited view of the lake (due to tree line) but grat room and fabulous patio with pool (although, note that these are East facing so the patio is completely in the shade by around 2pm).

The hotel pool and bar enjoys rhe sun right through to closing at 7 pm. Bizarly (never seen it before) the pool is open to non residents for €7 a day. At around lunchtime a stream of taxis, card and bikes arrive, so bay early afternoon there is not an inch of spare space around the pool 6or the rest of the day. As residents paying between €100 to €200 per day, you have little or no chance of getting anywhere near the hotel pool due to the numbers of non residents, unless you camp out from the morning. Sign of the times - this 'luxury hotel' clearly wants to extract every cent it can from where it can - maybve choose a cheaper hotel in town, then travel to du Lac to sun bathe in luxury each day for just a few euros!

The main building (bar/restaurant area) is really nice. The menu is disappointingly limited but the quality of the cooking did not disappoint.

The location is really good - about a 15 minutes stroll to the main bar and restaurant area by the lake, and the equivalent into town once you get your bearings.

A relarively short drive into the local mountain range provides the most spectacular views and scenary, with wild flowers growing in abundance in some areas as if they had been planned and planted by a skilled gardener.

The town has obviously seen better days (pre recession), and does suffer from the Greek obsession with spraying walls (including historic buildings) with childish scribble... But good for a few days to explore the beeaty of Epirus.

this is a good hotel, good location and very close to the lake, quite comfortable. the pool area is quite nice, the gardens are well maintained, clear and clean. Good service from the staff, yet nothing impressive.
Not really impressed by the food at breakfast, not much choice and nothing really fresh, yet it was ok.

This hotel just keeps improving! The new wing has jut been finished and the rooms are perfect. The pool area has been completely done over and is even more beautiful. I am here every year and love returning.

Room Tip: The new wing is great. Room 814 is excellent.

Perfect location with excellent view on the lake!!! I've stayed for one day and it's memorable. The breakfast was perfect with plenty of choices. The stuff was very nice and the rooms are very clean and glamorous. It is a hotel that everyone must visit.

Room Tip: Rooms with view at the lake are the best!!!

I've stayed here several times and always been very satisfied. Enormous rooms with huge windows and gorgeous views over the lake, courteous and helpful staff, an excellent position, and an outstanding breakfast.

Plus it has one of the best restaurants - for cooking and service - that I've found anywhere in Greece. Try the lamb.
