The bathroom was amazingly done, with attention to every single detail, toiletries available, down to shaving kit, toothbrushes, etc. Towels are soft, linen is beautiful,...

This is a great location particularly if you have a car. Parking is convenient across the road. Recommend getting a room facing the lake. Also there are smoking and non smoking rooms. Nice pool and sauna area. Formal restaurant at the hotel but not much else in walking distance. There is also a bar with live entertainment each night.
