8/10 Very good

Rooms have luxury feel. Appreciate clean fluffy towels and floor towels. Could do with rug next to bed. Very inconvenient electrical switches thru' headboard slats. No convenient square-pin plugs to charge mobile phones & laptops.

This is a lovely place to base while visiting the ancient cities. The staff are so friendly with very personal service - the buffet breakfast and dinners were amazing and the view over the lake was stunning. It is very isolated and not near to any shops or other restaurants but it has everything you need for a great stay.

4/10 Fair

The hotel is very old and is definitely in need of renovation. Despite all the previous reviews about the lack of sunbeds at the pools, the hotel seems to ignore the feedback. 20 sunbeds for over 100 rooms simply is not enough. The refrigerator in our room was moldy and dirty. Same for the toilet. How simple can it be to replace a twenty year old yellowish toilet seat? The food is okay, but far from what you would expect at a 5* hotel. The yoghurts and cheeses are left uniced, so once you will have them at the buffet - they are warm and melting. It doesn't much to improve these kind of things. The management is aware of all the feedback, but doesn't do anything to improve.
