Liked: A very relaxed atmosphere, very helpful staff, good beds and all in a fantastic location!

Disliked: My room joined with a private room which meant that 8 people shared one toilet and shower. Also conscious of leaving my belongings out with two ways of getting into the room. Wasn't a huge problem as the people I stayed with were nice and we all got on really well.

Apologies for the WIFI - it can be slow if there are lots of people online at the same time. Good to hear you had a comfortable stay - from all the team at Bumbles

Liked: The stunning views! It is all glass so you open the curtains directly on to the lake and mountains! Also super clean and very helpful friendly staff!

Disliked: Having to 2 dollars for the internet on their computers but you do get a free wifi code which is good if you have an ipad or your own device.

Liked: The staff (Fiona) is gorgeous! She is always available to give a hand to organize your stay there. The rooms are new, clean and spacious. The common areas have all the facilities and there is a good and friendly environment. Close to the town and incredible views from the room.

Disliked: It was a bit cold in the rooms and the kitchen is in a different block, so you should walk outside to get there.
