It also has plenty of parking and the very pleasant restaurant has sympathetic and well groomed waiters who serve food which is a delight in every way. The bad points. Yes you can see the lake but it...

We stayed here for the second time this year and it was just as good as the first. The beds are soooooo comfy I have the best sleep ever. Breakfast is still great with lots of choice and the staff as helpful and friendly as before. We will be back again I'm sure.

On asking the receptionist if our room faced the front or back of the hotel she arranged for us to see 2 further rooms and choose which one we liked best. We chose room...
