We stayed at this hotel on the basis that it was extremely child friendly. The building itself is a dreadful eyesore from the 1970s that does not do justice to the amazing lake-side setting. The food was awful and incredibly expensive, particularly the children's menu, where you are forced to order several dishes merely to assemble a basic meal. The bar is ok but very old fashioned. The rooms are bland and need updating. The swimming pool is ok but not good for children as it's too deep and too cold. The children's indoor play area is hidden away in the basement and is very drab. However, the biggest turn-offs were the overcharging - euro 6.60 for two children's apple juices in the restaurant and, worst of all, a whopping euro 5.80 for a glass of milk for our baby that was delivered to our room. We were so disgusted by the latter incident that we disputed it when checking out and got it reversed. All in all, a very average hotel in an amazing setting. Unfortunately, we will not be back.
