This was a popular spot right on the lake, a favourite because of the hot spring pools. It was obvious from the layout of the buildings, that they were constructed at different times. Although they were connected by long hallways, I felt like I was in a rabbit warren when walking from one side of the resort to the other.
Disappointing in spite of the pricy room charges, was an additional charge to park your car in the resort’s parking lot. Even bottled water left in the room was not complementary.
On a positive note however, was the high tea and the garden behind the buildings. The plants may not have looked their best at the time of year I visited, but some of the trees and the rock garden gave a hint of how pleasant it might be in the summer. When I passed an oak, I realised from the sign that this garden was designed more than eighty years ago.
