Liked: Very friendly and helpful reception staff. Nice clean kitchen and tables to eat at. Good clean rooms, comfy beds and amazing view of the lake from my room! Good storage space in rooms, slightly annoying that if someone was in the shower you couldn't use the toilet but that would be my only gripe!
