    Individual guest reviews

    • Our room was terrific and had a great lake view, luggage shipment from Sheplers ferry was easy and convenient. Our stay last October was exceptional and staff were friendly and helpful. The food was sooooo good.

      Not worth the money and wow, small, dingy, and old style TV's. The island has no cars, just horse drawn vehicles and bikes, front desk service is very poor and unhelpful.

    • The views were spectacular from our balcony and the Grand Hotel was a perfect place to celebrate our 36th anniversary. The service there was excellent, the room was clean and the food was good and wonderfully presented.

      Overall staff in all areas unfriendly.

    • Staff were excellent in all areas and the hotel itself was was sunny and had marvelous decor. The room was charming and the food was very very good overall.

      Unskilled service, bed very old and uncomfortable, not worth the 75 per person for dinner at all.

    • One of the best views in the world and round Island lighthouse. The decor is bright and the staff is eager to please you. The rooms are perfectly appointed and of course, lovely, breakfast is great too. The fee is collected by courteous hosts are appropriately insistent necessary.

      Service isn't much better, the furniture was also old and chipped.
