Hotel is placed on the lake with the main road off to the side not shown in the official photos, however very quiet no disturbance from the road at all. Rooms were also very well insulated with comfortable beds and good standard en suite bathrooms. Deluxe Lakeview room could take a z bed as requested however did not leave much free space. The staff are very helpful and exceptionally polite. The but comes as follows .. This is a 4 star hotel I think it must be mainly due to its spa. There appeared to be no portering services definitely no concierge and we had "fun " manipulating one of those very large trollies for luggage. No one in reception offered to do this for us and watched as we struggled. At breakfast it was ALL buffet service you even have to get your own tea coffee and toast. No selection of eggs just scrambled ! Nothing very imaginative about breakfast, nothing cooked to order. Saying that all very well cooked if you like your hot breakfast stewed under a metal lid ! I did mention this twice to reception staff and they all seemed surprised that this was how breakfast was served and said they would mention it ! We stayed at a similar priced 4 star in jersey recently and all the above plus a fantastic cooked to order breakfast was provided. At just over £190 B&B per night we did expect the niceties to be included.
We would go back, it's not a luxury 4 star may be it is for the iow, It was our first time so we have no comparative. It's functional clean great location just doesn't have that extra touch of luxury we are used to
