  • Great views over the lake, bright airy hotel and the fresh flowers in the lobby are a feast for the eyes. The staff is very friendly and the concierge is very helpful. The suites are definitely spacious.

    Not worth the very high price and service was slow. The rooms were not lit good, breakfast was expensive and all a bit over the top for my personal taste.

  • I loved the location, there's better and nicer in town, the hotel service is excellent and the lake room view is amazing. The new decoration is very modern and stylish, staff are professional, the bed is one of the best I ever slepped in. Big breakfast buffet in lounge in the am is convenient and plentiful.

    Not worth the price and the mattress feels like is 30 years old. The food is too expensive, most undignified and the Concierge typically look on helpless.

  • Nice lounge/bar area for relaxing and the concierge was very kind and helpful to buy the train ticket on my behalf. The atmosphere was congenial, staff were exceptionally good and the bed was large and comfortable. The lebanese restaurant was excellent, the gym was perfectly adequate.

    A very nice, expensive hotel, not worth the money and maybe we looks really young, the girl at the front desk was bit arrogant to us. My room was not clean and the amenities were missing.
