Definitely not a 4. Star

Only one, the view over the lake
Beautiful view over the late. Resort completely run down. Pool had missing tiles, torn umbrellas, dirty pool chairs. Gardens could be lovely with some maintainence. Fridge not working, replaced the following evening, Nothing felt clean Positive was boat trip using hotels boat. Had it to ourselves for 4 hours. Well worth the trip.

Value for money. Hughly underutilised resort

Good location, calm, quiet and reasonable rates.
It was a good stay. Water in the pool was not very good .Food was nice. Rooms and bathrooms were clean. Very sad to see only very few tourists. May be due to lack of proper advertisement-

Great location rubbish hotel

Friendly reception staff, arranged cheap transport for us, comfortable bed
Lovely location but run down, very tired and dirty hotel. The hotel had more crows than people and even more bird droppings. We only had a small lunch there but even this was inedible... The club sandwich was complete with cherry on top... Enough said. It's hard to imagine this hotel will still be around next year. Needs much care and attention to bring it up to scratch again. Do not go.

location, gardens, pool
beautiful location on the lake, hotel looks a little tired needs some maintain ace to bring it up to standard, tiles falling off pool, painting and cleaning of mould on brickwork. Overall was a nice stay. Advertise as accessible for wheelchair but stairs to room and dining area and bath in most rooms.

2 star hotel maximum

Large room
I wanted to like this hotel, I really did. Here are the reasons I didnt: dirty, dingy feel to everything. We had a private pool but it was only 2/3 full, and there was bird poop all over the deck, including the 2 dining style chairs (really...why not pool chairs?) I had to ask 3 times over the course of 1.5 hours for extra blankets and towels... Only 2 towels provided for a family of four. I finally had to go to management and they had no good reason for the delay. The grounds are in need of help, lamps are green plastic, pool was filthy. We wanted to reserve the boat, note that the resoy only had one boat and no one told us that we should book well in advance, and going out on the boat was the primary reason for our trip. The spa asked if we wanted massages repeatedly, verging on harassment, food was not good, all of the table settings felt dirty and the breakfast buffet was the worst I've ever encountered. I wouldn't stay again. I don't recommend it to anyone.
