6/10 Good

Hotel was probably nice in its day, but is getting dated now. The first room on level 5 was so noisy, and walls so think I could hear word for word the conversations next door. Reception did move me to Level 1, which was nice and quiet, but the room wasn't as nice (for the same money), the bathroom fan didn't really work which meant the mirror misted up within seconds, and the windows were coated in condensation in the morning so there was no view of the lake outside. I'd definitely look to stay somewhere newer next time.

Great location, very close to main town but not noisy. The service was above average, the gentleman who checked us in initially was particularly great. Very clean and generous room space for a 1 bedroom apartment. Would recommend staying here and likely will return myself.
