Unexpected experience
I am disappointed at my stay at the hotel I arrived at the hotel to find my room at the back of the top floor with a ceiling window only which felt like a box I asked the hotel to change the room and they said they had nothing available and after giving them an angry face they said they can manage one room with a window which turned out to be smaller than the first one and had no bath tub Next day at the reception another group were checking in and they asked to change their rooms to be next to each other and the hotel did that for them instantly which means they had other rooms available that they didn’t offer me the day before and were just acting “cheap” On top of that a friend in my group traveling with us booked his room through booking at the same price and he got a much bigger room, with windows and a much better view than mine which was for me really redicilous The room was small and the bed was not comfortable at all, the sink was ols and not very clean and the nect day I found a spider in the bathroom The TV in the room was very small and there was no mini fridge to keep any items you have Breakfast was not bad and the restaurant staff was helpful The location was good with one minute walking to the lake and close to the bus stop Yet overall I would not stay there again

Anniversary Laugh
It was a comedy of errors for us, but our own fault. My husband and I were travelling his mother (lovely lady) and it was our wedding anniversary, so we booked ourselves a superior room and His mum a standard room. Unfortunately for us, her room wax on the 3rd floor and she is 86 years old. So we didn't let on and gave her the ground floor room and it's king size bed and 2 showers and we took the standard room double bed with shower for one. It really was hilarious between my husband and I. However, the room was quaint and my only advice is to check which floor your room is on. Breakfast lovely, staff wonderful.
