We stayed here for 3 nights recently. Hotel is centrally located on the lake front. Check-in was quick and friendly.
We had booked a room with a lake view and it seemed there were only 2 of these rooms available so we were lucky we booked well in advance. We had a shared balcony to the front of the building overlooking the lake. Since these rooms are to the front of the building, do expect a little noise/chatter outside from people using the restuarant's outdoor seating. It was no problem or disturbance for us.
Our room(s) was a family room - one room with double bed, a room with 2 single beds and a seperate bathroom. All were basic in design but spotless clean. Air-Con was great, though situated over the bed meant it had to be off at night to avoid discomfort! A mini-fridge would have made the room perfect for us!
Despite having the 'Do not Disturb' sign on our room door, staff tried to access our room a couple of times - once to water flowers on the balcony (and use our bathroom for water) and another time to check something with the TV remote (not sure why!).
Breakfast was basic but did the job if you're not fussy - cereals, breads, ham, cheese and (very sweet) juices. Ends at 10.30am.
We ate in the hotel's restuarant one evening. Prices were good plus a 10% discount for hotel guests. Waiting staff could have been friendlier here though.
We needed to park our car so availed of the hotel's discount at a 'nearby' communal car park. There's no road access to the hotel so we needed to park in another paid car park first (on Via Columbo) until we checked in and received directions and permit for the hotel car park (Via M.Polo / Via Preare). It was €6 per day and located approx 800m from the hotel. It took about 10 mins to walk back into town. A free shuttle bus does run by the car park every 30mins but takes the long scenic route through the whole town so best to walk if you can. We needed to leave one passport in the reception safe as security for the parking permit and got it back upon return of it.
Also because we stayed more than 2 nights, we could avail of free access to the nearby Garda Aqua swimming pool, sauna facility. We didnt have time to use it but it's a nice feature of the stay.
Check-out time was 10.30am according to our booking details but a leafet from the hotel upon arrival stated 10am (which is early sinice breakfast only ends at 10.30).
Overall, we would stay here again and would recommend the hotel to friends. We paid 50c city tax per person per night on top of our hotel fee. Ideally, a later check-out time of 11am/11.30am would improve this further.
