Rating the hotel a 3 isn't a knock in any way. I felt the High Peaks was perfectly adequate. It neither impressed nor disappointed me. It's what you'd expect for the money and the location is very good. You get what you pay for, and that's all I asked. Would stay again if visiting the area.

Very nice hotel with lots of amenities. LOVED the covered garage in the middle of the snowy winter month. You do pay a bit more for the accommodations, especially if there is an event going on locally. Rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet.

Nice hotel with great views of the lake and surrounding areas. The location is desirable as it is right on the main shopping street with plenty of shops and bars. The Dancing Bars bar/restaurant is in the hotel and is convenient for drinks and casual dining. There is a parking ramp connected to the hotel. Rooms were updated and clean.
