Very good 8.0
Staff at breakfast was plain rude, which is surprising because staff at reception was very nice. Breakfast was not great either, definitely would not pay for it were it not included in the stay. Room room was beautiful with an amazing lake view (although small windows).

Fantastic Hotel!
This hotel is a delight! The location is superb! The staff are amazing and the amenities are fantastic! Atmosphere in the National Bar was great. We stayed with a 6 month old baby and even the cot in the room was beautifully set-up.

Room Quality varies
We were greeted by a friendly receptionist and shown to a room on the third floor with a balcony overlooking the lake. The room was overstuffed with furniture and looked worn and dated. There was even a large chest in the tiny bathroom and an unsafe tub shower combination (because the tub was so high it was a long step to get out). That night we were kept awake by noise from the people in the next room as the walls do not have sound proofing. Then we were woken up at 4:30am by the people next door screaming and yelling. We informed the desk and asked for another room. We were told that the hotel was full and that unfortunately we were in a room in the middle of rooms occupied by a tour group. The desk was sympathetic but didn't know if they could do anything for us. As it turned out they did eventually find a room for us on a lower floor. It was the same price. This room was much bigger and had a large newly redone bathroom. It was in much better condition and not overstuffed with furniture. It was also quiet! While it did not have a balcony the large windows opened to a railing with the same lake view. The included breakfast buffet was excellent and dinner at the hotel restaurant was fantastic. The staff was very nice throughout our stay.

Lovely location
Lovely setting on the lake, and room was very well appointed with a super comfortable bed, albeit the room was very hot even with the heating off and we couldn’t really open the door due to being on the road (not lake) side. Some of the common areas look a bit tired but the food we had in restaurant national was very good. Pool and spa area also lovely with an amazing terrace with lake and mountain views. EF also have there global headquarters in the building with two floors off limits which felt a bit strange. All in all a good hotel and a lovely location.
