My family and I visited Lakeview with mixed views on what it was going to be like. I am gad to say that we were pleasantly surprised! Although some of the decor in the main building slightly resembled that of a 1970's skiing resort we still found the trip thoroughly enjoyable!
We stayed for two weeks, the first of which was in a A-frame lodge that was beautifully decorated and well equipped in all fields. For the second week I decided to upgrade our party to a VIP Chalet - This was a great decision! We had a great location right on the edge of the well maintained golf course. The Jacuzzi was crystal clear and a welcoming temperature. The chalet it'self had 3 bedrooms a kitchen and lounge area with 3 bathrooms all very pleasant and clean. We had lovely relaxing days playing a few rounds of golf, tennis, fishing and walking around the beautiful grounds.
We also decided to visit the very quaint village of Padstow, home to Rick Stien's restaurant and bistro in which the food was not only fantastic but also a very reasonable price. The food at Lakeview however was even more surprising than the quality of the accommodation! There was a vast array of cuisines and we dedicated ourselves to trying every one of them between us. Everything was fantastic and the portions were very generous apart from one meal, the steak. Unfortunately it always slightly overcooked compared to how I would expect. I would always ask for rare and expect medium or make a special request.
Also on our trip we encountered the new owners. They were extremely friendly and were very open in regard to the various construction stages of the new phase. The newly promoted general manager - Carl seemed to be a great man for the job and was authoritative and helpful throughout our stay. However, all the staff were fantastic and they were the main contributors to making our Easter stay feel that much more special.
Tranquil and Relaxing, the perfect place to come for a long weekend and get away from it all.
