          The gym/changing rooms need so serious work done to them. The men's changing room is like a sauna.. The showers smell like rotten eggs and half the lockers don't work. The gym is fine just a bit dated.

          Most of the rooms are in modern two-storey chalets. The main building is a former private house, with lawn down to the water, and utterly fabulous. The architecture is ?1890s plutocratic, well preserved, and tastefully presented. The service is attentive, and the location spectacular.More
