This was the first time we stayed at this hotel and we were truly amaze with the facility and the food. We stayed 2 nights and both days we were provided with an excellent selection of different food . The room was perfect, absolutely spacious with the lovely view of the lake which we can see right from our windows. We would stay again.

Great service, the staff were attentive and made sure we were well looked after. I liked that they provide a shuttle to the bus station despite the relatively short distance. The hot spring is a tad small but clean and puts you in a relaxing mood. What I think could be improved: having more hooks and a towel rack in the bathroom.
