We booked this hotel for 3 nights in a trip rahemen. All tip top - from the check-in check-out Very friendly and efficient staff. Always helpful. Great room, we had a doppelhausbungalow, the garden was. The room was very modern and tastefully decorated. The food was very delicious, most of all, there was not only international cuisine, but with a kitchen and very good curry extrabüfett singalesischer. Here, too, the staff was friendly and fast. The location of the hotel is wonderful. As the name already says it, not far from the lake. A walk was definitely worth it. read hotel review

For a short stay the hotel is ok. We stayed three nights there, that was enough. The grounds are very nice and the nearby lake also. The beach chairs and towels at the pool were already very worn out and also the bungalows may use a renovation. In the room, there was no storage space. Drawers were not available, and in the wardrobe there is no possibility to hang up something, since in the mid-a board is appropriate. It is not much against insects in the room done. I have some spinnenbisse closed, even after my return still medically to ... be dealt with. Also the room was cleaned only superficially. In the dining room, it was always very full and loud, because the tour groups all at the same time food. The offer of the food is the same every day. The quality is not very high and the staff poorly trained. The hotel was by the travel agent, we personally would not choose it. read hotel review
