The Bad
Reviews used for this analysis were limited and, although most were positive, there were a few negative comments regarding the view and the TVs.

A couple of guests noted that unlike the name implies, the hotel does not have a lake view. Rather, these guests said that the hotel backs on to a light industrial area offering a pretty uninspiring view.

A few guests mentioned that the TV in their room was an older style in need of replacing or repair.
