Having read other reviews I wonder if we were in the same place. This is not really on the lake, but in a backwater behind reed beds that has large islands of dredged mud currently sitting in front of the front line "lake view " rooms along with a back hoe digger. another hotel is bejng built next door on the right so noisy during the day. Our first front line room had direct views of the digger and a mud island....we changed to a better position but still not great. Almost better to be on the back line as they are higher up and you avoid the noise of the boats first thing jn the morning. The room itself was impressive but nice wooden hot tub was useless as not enough hot water to fill it to a decent level and the lighting and general lay out was bizarre. No way of turning lights off or on from bed and sitting area had terrible lighting and no view of tv.
Other gripes: no real bar area to sit and have pre dinner drink; not enough seating in lobby given only internet access was there or dining room; very limited menu for dinner, particularly of local food( breakfast chiice was much better so cant understand why so few local dishes at dinner) ; service was ok but the standard of understanding of English beyond the basics was poor so any question out of the ordinary was met with blank look.; front desk failed to pass on message to us about change of pick up time from our guide, leaving us waiting on the boat dock.
some of staff were very friendly and helpful, but overall if you want a lake view hotel I would go somewhere else.
