We had such a beautiful room with a gorgeous view of the lake. It was immaculate and it was spacious with a gorgeous bathroom. If we could add one change it would be that, while we had a view of the lake, it was somewhat diminished by the pond in front of our balcony which was a murky brown colour. Other than that, it was a delightful stay.

The room was small but had everything we needed. Good sky tv, wifi, shower was great and had nice water pressure. My only grip was the buffet breakfast. 30 dollars was reasonable but if you just want cereal you feel you want to get your moneys worth and end up over eating
