My wife took me here for my birthday and we had a great stay. The rooms were great and the food was excellent as always as were the staff. There was a wedding on as there normally is but it's all kept very separate so it didn't impact our stay at all. Great hotel for a foody getaway.

We had a lakeside suite with a beautiful outlook over the lake. The weather was perfect, so all in all you couldn't have asked for more. The room was immaculate, the staff friendly and helpful and the dining room excellent. A wonderful place to stay. Highly recommended.

This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in, and I have previously stayed in really upmarket hotels in Asia. I cannot fault any aspect of our stay, the room was huge, the service was fantastic, the food was amazing. It is expensive, but even so, is excellent value for money.
