It turned out to be an expensive experience as I left behind my Peter Alexander nightshirt behind and I was told they couldn’t find it. I left if behind the bathroom door, it’s not a huge bathroom! Also the coffee mugs do not fit under the coffee machine, the bed is rock hard and the phone outside the reception doesn’t work, and the place had a musty smell when we first walked through the door.

A really nice stay, amazing views of the lake and
Lovely quite location with an amazing view. The bed so really comfortable and the shower had good flow and plenty of hot water. Check in and check out was a breeze, coffee machine and own BBQ was a bonus also. There are facilities to wash you clothes although we did not use them. Parking was not an issue. I would highly recommend this accommodation
