Good value for the price. The room had some strange odour (like a farm?) when you walked in but looked clean — kind of not noticing the smell much after some time; low water pressure, hard to get a hot/ colder water balance for the shower. Pillows were not comfortable for my liking.

The location is perfect, close enough to the village and also close enough to Lake Matheson...all within walkable distances. The room was a good size and comfortable. The curtains kept the light out so much we missed sunrise (but were not worried). The only thing that was a bit annoying was the drain in the wetfloor in the bathroom was a bit of a hazard especially in the dark.
