I arrived with the option of a free upgrade from a excellent room to a really excellent room. (particularly exciting since I had never been upgraded in my life!) I had a Living room/kitchen, a bedroom and bathroom. The decor was modern and the small details of how the towels were folded in the bathroom and bedroom...and how things were exquisitly placed in the cupboards just made this hotel a delight to stay in. The kitchen meant I could save a little money and eat in - just perfect. Was a 5 min walk to the lake and about 10/15min to the centre. The host had many recommendations on what to do an discount vouchers for various places...a swim in De Brett's hot spring is perfect for a bit of r and r. If you are looking for a little bit of luxury on your travels this is definitely the place to come. To get this standard in the UK you would be paying hundreds!
