The most convenient in town
If there was ever an example of a hotel that totally squanders a stunning near-lakeside location, this is it.
Large but mediocre rooms are housed in a multi-floor egg-carton concrete building to the right of the reception area. The rooms are of a good size but are in dire need of a sandblasting followed by a coat of paint. Bathrooms are adequate. Staff are quite friendly, though limited English is spoken. Rooms include weak free WiFi and a bland free breakfast. Noticing a theme yet? Don’t worry, you’ll only be here a night. Staff are helpful with arranging onwards transport and making sure you get on the right bus to wherever you are headed.
