The original portion of the hotel has all the retail and recreational facilities as well as some guest rooms although most of them are in one of the two towers that flank the original building. The back rooms overlook the pool or gardens but the best rooms have a lake view. We stayed in the newest tower, built about 12 years ago, where all the rooms have balconies and views of the lake. Our balcony was large enough for four people
to sit with drinks and appetizers while enjoying the scenery. The very spacious room had two queen size beds, a mini bar and remote control TV and the large 4 piece bathroom was filled with the usual amenities as well as a couple of oversize, thick white cotton bathrobes. Except for relaxing on the balcony we didn’t spend much time in our room because there was so much to do at the hotel.
The main floor lounge had large picture windows that faced the lake and was a great place to relax with a drink. The resort had 5 pools - a separate children’s’ pool, 2 indoor pools (one heated by the hot springs) and 2 outdoor pools (one also
heated by the hot springs). Also a spa, beauty salon, gift store, clothing store, full indoor gym with all the standard equipment and weights as well as an outdoor exercise circuit spread throughout the hotel grounds, tennis courts, sauna, children’s playground and a nine hole golf course nearby. Afternoon tea with cakes and cookies was served in the lobby and was included in the price of the room.
There was no shortage of places to eat and drink at the resort - everything from a coffee shop, bar and lounge, pool side snack bar, casual restaurant with great Sunday brunches and a very good formal restaurant called the Copper Room which is only open for dinner.
Within a few blocks walk were a number of other restaurants including Japanese,French, German, fish and chips, a pub and more.
Rooms start at $170. (CDN)
and vary depending on whether you stay in the original section or newer towers and whether you have a pool, garden or lake view. I’d recommend paying extra for a lake view in the newer section. The resort often has special packages that include dinner, golf or a visit to the spa - check with your travel agent.
