Great location just across the road from the lake and walking/cycle path and walking distance from the shops. My only negative was that we were in room 1 and the external lights shone through the room all night even though there were thick curtains.

Thanks Paul, We upgraded our lighting and yes some of our guests are finding it rather bright and I apologise. We are in the process of ordering shutters for the windows which will look great and block the light.
