As it was my husbands big 40 birthday, I specifically requested a room with a view of the lake - not guaranteed. However, on being escorted to the room, they had gone one better a fantastic view of the lake, champagne on ice, fruit platter and even a birthday card.
The hotel is ideally situated for the main shopping area, old town and some very nice bistros. The road outside the hotel is a very busy road throughout the night, so if staying on the front don't leave the window open as it can get quite noisy. Fine with the window shut, though. Room good, the Lavazza coffee machine is a nice touch. Bit tricky picking the correct cup size though and don't forget to locate the stop button first if you turn the hot water on! On the whole great - pricey but worth it.
