눉Booking.com description does not tell that the hotel is not reachable by car. Food menu need to be increase, for example fresh salad/any kind of western food is not available.
눇Most likely one of the best spots on Lake Toba. The hotel is reachable from Silangit airport within 30 minutes. The last 10 minutes need to be done by boat. Views are amazing, all rooms are facing the lake/sunsets. The GM Rosita is very friendly and helpful. Overall a very nice experience, you cannot be closer to the lake.

눉Watch out: The tag on the map on tripadvisor isn't right. It's NOT on the island 'samosir': It's in the very south of the lake in 'balige', one and a half hour south from 'parapat' by car, where you have to take a boat to the hotel. The boat only runs a couple of times a day between the hotel and mainland in 'balige'. Furthermore the staff doesn't speak english very well, which makes it really difficult to communicate without speaking indonesian. It's also not that easy to get a taxi or other transports to anywhere near the boat landing stage for the hotel in 'balige'... Also the hotel facilities were a little disappointing: No Internet, it seems old and the bathroom wasn't clean.
눇Staff was really friendly
