Won't Stay Here Again
Positives - good view of the lake and walking distance to town. Negatives - electric blankets didn’t work, room only had a oil column heater which was not adequate, kitchen was very old but everything did work, replacement towels/face cloth etc were just left inside the door not folded up nicely, I had an adjoining room and could clearly hear the people next door being intimate, loud enough that it woke me up. Worse part is the photos didn’t represent my room.

6/10 Good

Great position to lake and town area. Unit has a modern bathroom but the rest could do with renovating and would also benefit from double glazing to cut down the road noise.

2/10 Poor

The heater in the bedroom was working properly and the one in lounge fan was making terrible noise. Had to ask reception numerous time to get another heater. especially when you have a family with 5 yr old in middle of winter. No electric blankets The bathroom had no extractor fan and had to open the windows while having shower and the windows open on the common corridor. The kitchen had smell and didn't feel like making coffee. TV wasn't working and had to call the maintenance guy to fix. I wont stay here or recommend any one. All overall the only good thing was the maintenance guy turning up with heater at around 9 or 10m once we were in bed.
