The floor on the shower room is not anti-slip, you have to walk carefully while taking a shower. Overall looks very short-handed for this place.

The overall stay was good. The night staff and morning staff were very hospitable. It was disappointing to drive up and smell the milk cow farm on the property and the afternoon attendant was not at all welcoming. The rest of the stay definitely got better and the rest of the staff was friendly. You get used to the smell and the breakfast and spa were good. I wouldn’t want to stay more than one night and didn’t feel it was a favorite on the ring road for above reasons.

Very clean and clearly signed to make your way around. Thought it was closer to the lake, lake views than there were. Shame the spa was additional cost. Breakfast spread was good and parking was easy and free.
