Positive Reviews

Arrive on the water.

Guests love the hotel's location between the sea and lake, with direct access to the beach, and the arrival to the hotel doors by boat is something a little bit special - it makes a change from the average drive-up. If you're after a romantic getaway, this location is perfect.

Refreshing pool area.

If you're hoping for a hotel with a gorgeous pool area where you can refresh and relax, then look no further. Guests highly rate Ceysands for this, with the swim-up bar and ample lounger space for soaking up the sun after a dip. There's also a separate children's pool.

Spacious rooms.

The rooms are spacious and well appointed, according to guests, and the rooms with balconies come particularly highly recommended, since watching the sun set over the ocean is an experience to savour. Whichever room you choose though, it should be very comfy.

Negative Reviews

Plumbing problems.

Some guests have complained about the bathrooms, saying that they're sometimes not as clean as they could be, and that plumbing issues can cause bad smells. It's the kind of thing that, if you encounter it, can put a damper on what is supposed to be a luxury stay.

Slow dining.

The restaurants at Ceysands aren't to everyone's taste, with some guests complaining that service can be slow at times, and the food a little unimaginative and repetitive, especially if you're there for several days or more, and the location can be limiting to eating out.

Check-in troubles.

While it seems that the overall service is friendly, numerous guests have commented that the welcome and check-in process from the reception staff could be improved. As your first encounter at this upmarket resort, this should be spot-on, but it seems that staff are too few or under-trained at times.
