We stayed at the Golf Hotel for several days over Christmas as part of a tour. Apart from abrupt staff at reception we found all other staff good.
Our room overlooked the lake and the view was so incredible, whether fine, misty or snowing that we found we continually kept going to the window or out on the balcony to enjoy it. The room was clean, spacious, quiet and well presented. There was a lounge and small table and plenty of hanging space - useful when staying several days. The bathroom was adequate. There was no refrigerator in the room but because it was so cold we could leave our drinks outside on the balcony to chill.
We were a short stroll to the lake and several food shops, a supermarket, tourist information and attractions such as a local market in a nearby hotel and small boats to take us out to the church on the island. Walk up to the castle and see the most interesting print shop and the views. On the way down have a meal at a local cafe or restaurant.
The Christmas festivities here were wonderful. We enjoyed concerts, fireworks, a local "sinking of the bell" ceremony amongst others. Also on Christmas Day staff had placed a hand made christmas stocking with mandarins and chocolates on each door!
As most meals were included in our package we mainly ate at the hotel. Most meals were buffets, and despite the large number of people staying, the food was always fresh and plentiful, with an impressive array of dishes for all meals. The dining room staff were most professional, continually replenishing the buffet, taking drink orders and clearing tables as we ate. They were also most helpful in explaining unusual local dishes.
Wi-fi access was only available in the lounge downstairs but at least there was access. We found some hotels we stayed in did not have any free access. There was also a computer available to check emails in this area.
If you are after a complete Christmas package this is the place to go! At other times book a room overlooking the lake and enjoy the view.
