Probably the best small hotel I've ever stayed in. Rooms are comfortable (though there is no fridge or kettle) and its worth paying for the lakeside view as the location could not be bettered. Waking up to dawn over the lake was wonderful. Staff were welcoming and service faultless. The hotel also does an evening menu (4 choices each course) which was excellent value and good quality. Unlike most hotels, the beer here was cheaper than the local bars!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
