Myself and my two friends stayed in this hotel last weekend. We had a lovely stay with the highlight of our visit being the roof top bar with panoramic views on the lake. The cocktail list was extensive with plenty to choose from and I would highly recommend the "Strawberry Daiquiri".
The rooms were very spacious with comfortable beds and nice crispy bed linen.
The Food in the restaurant was nice but needs some work. I got the stir fry and the portion was small with little variety of vegetables. My friends got the sea bass and it was over cooked - again the selection of vegetables was small and consisted of 5-6 cubes of parsnip scattered around the plate. The deserts were definitely not home made. The choices on the menu were good but I thought €24 euros for a steak a little excessive.
The receptionist on both our arrival date and departure date was very friendly and helpful which was nice to see and this immediately gives you a good feeling for the place.
The bar staff were also fast and efficient and you were never left waiting to long to be served despite a big wedding party presence in he bar.
And last but by no means least I have to mention Martin - in the restaurant. Martin served us our dinner in the Brassiere he was excellent, friendly and efficient and was delighted to be getting feedback on our meal so he could pass along our comments whether positive or negative to the chef.
All in all we had a lovely experience and will definitely go back to this hotel again real soon.
