This boutique hotel sits right on beautiful Clear Lake, so the views are absolutely stunning, as are the sunsets. The hotel staff were extremely efficient and friendly from the time of booking to when we checked out. We had a king sized bed room on the upper floor with a balcony and 2 chairs and table, which was great for sundowners. The bed was unbelievably comfortable, the room very spacious and clean with modern fittings/decoration. NOTE - all the upper floor and lower floor rooms looking onto the lake also look onto the restaurant and bar, so privacy on your balcony is limited. It's a short drive into town where there is a good selection of restaurants and bars. Overall, we loved our stay and this delightful hotel and will be back!
