    Staff, bar, food,

    Food is stuck in the 1950s. What staff there are and that is very few are boring and miserable. No initiative. The whole place looks and feels like a 1970s Russian state holiday camp. Not at all comfortable or welcoming.

    The hairdryer - one of those ones that doesn't do anything attached to the wall taking up space! The bathroom door needed a sliding one, not enough room otherwise. No plug sockets near the bed.

    Fabulous views from the bedroom window, lovely staff, beautiful area, very peaceful. Good size room, and very clean, with some free water & fruit provided.

    It was overpriced. We got there on the low season and the regular was way overpriced. We ended up getting the master suite and that made the deal fair.

    The master suite was quite comfortable, the bubble bathtube with a view was quite nice. The fireplace was also very cosy. We were there in the low season so we had the whole place for ourselves.

    Very disappointing for a "4 star" hotel. All the staff are very young. The rooms are small. The large bar area has zero atmosphere, we went down for an evening drink and it felt like being in a doctors waiting room. The step around the bar is dangerous, being covered in the same carpet as the floor, as a result I twisted my ankle. We'd never seen so many juniper berries in a gin and tonic (see picture) We asked for a plate of cheese to go with a bottle of wine and eventually recieved a few small slices with an egg cup of oil not sure how they thought this was 4 star. ( see picture)

    Great views from the hotel overlooking the lake. Really nice and helpful staff Good breakfast.

    Probably the only thing is a bit of tummy loving care for some of the facilities.

    The swimming pool is huge and one of the deepest ever seen. The hotel has a very particular vintage style which, once you get used to it, you will love. Breakfast offered lactose free options (thumbs up!)

    There is nothing else around so you need to prepared to eat and drink at the hotel. Brilliant for a romantic getaway but the hotel was very quiet when we were there so no atmosphere.

    The hotel was lovely and had perfect views over the lake. Friendly staff. The swimming pool was great. We had a bar snack which was reasonable. Breakfast was excellent.

    The food was very poor and as the hotel is 8 Kms from Fererria do Zezerre unless you want to drive on very windy roads into town for dinner then you are stuck. We didn't have one reasonable meal during our 3 night stay. If the restaurant improved it would be a great place to stay.

    Lovely location by the lake and nice rooms. Very pleasant staff.
