Wonderful weekend break
Sandra E

We stayed at this hotel for the weekend and must admit that we were able to really relax here.

The staff cannot do enough for you and went out of their way with any requests that you had and it was refreshing to find politeness and efficiency with a friendly manner.

The room had everything that you could have on your list of requirements and the grounds were so pretty.,

We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone for a top class stay. Should you wish to do shopping then it is a short pretty walk through the gardens.

We look forward to another stay here in the future.


We stayed there at the end of October for one night.

Having arrived there we were stunned how amazing this grand hotel looks with all the indigenous plants - a perfect composition.

The service generally speaking was impeccable. No matter which kind: at the reception, at the restaurant, housekeeping and so on. The staff was very friendly, warm and willing to give you a wonderful experience with no stones left unturned.

Because everything seemed to good to be true, we tried to find errors and negative points, but couldn't find any. Even all the fruits (on different levels and in the spa-zone) were immaculate.

If you are looking for a wonderful experience in a city, near to the lake, with beautiful plants, where you also have the possibility to unwind from the shackles of everyday life (sauna, bio-sauna, calidarium, Turkish bath, swimming pool, hydro pool & a private zone at the lake) with lots of space to move around - this building is huge -, then you have to make this experience yourself!

Absolutely astonishing!
