We returned 3 years after our first visit and weren’t disappointed. This time we stayed in a smaller apartment which had stunning views of the mountains and lake. All very clean and kitchen well equipped. The staff were very friendly despite being busy and responded quickly to any requests. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice. Thank you for another memorable visit.

Great location and wonderful rooms

Stayed for 2 nights and stayed over for breakfast as well. Very nice stay. I did go to the bar for a drink but lady who served me said it was her first day and I had a class of port and charged me $20 which I thought was a little on the expensive side. Also WiFI get dropping out as we were a little out from main reception.

Tired & in need of a refresh.

Location & view was amazing. Size of the living area was great. Size of rooms smaller & the small one bathroom to service 4 guests was disappointing. Overall, the cleanliness was not great. Mould all around base of shower & the dishes were not clean. Probably due to the fact that the dishwasher did not function well at all. We ended up washing dishes by hand each day. Pots & pans needed replacement as they were very used. Stains on the furniture and feeling of grime in the kitchen. Airconditioner in main room was noisy to the point where we had to turn off to sleep. Combined washer dryer did not dry clothes. Overall for what we paid it was a disappointing stay.

Good night sleep the entire night

A wedding was on the location which would be fine if we were told. And also would’ve been fine if they turn the music to a reasonable level. The music was blasting so loud until 1130 at night. Even with noise canceling headphones, you could still hear it and it was shaking in your whole body. But never pay that amount of money to stay in place knowing music would be blaring. It’s such a high dB.
