Perfect location with a lovely outlook. Our apartment was beautifully prepared, clean and well appointed. Every consideration was taken to ensure we did not want for anything. Would definitely return here in the future

The 5 Knots is of superior standards in a very good location with all amenities overlooking the lake. There are several very good restaurants just round the corner and a lovely pub again overlooking a lake
