Ollie, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

Its 15 rooms are all light and spacious, and most importantly have spectacular views over the lake and Patagonian landscape that flood in through the large windows. The rooms are all large and elegantly decorated, with individual features in each room such as halved wooden canoes acting as bookshelves. They are also fully equipped with many of the latest mod cons.

The restaurant serves food that is testament to Argentina's renowned culinary skills - try the Patagonian trout (straight from the lake) and dulce de leche filled puddings. Eat on the hotel's lake dock with breathtaking panoramic views of Nahuel Huapi Lake, or in the restaurant.

The hotel's location on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi mean there are endless activities on offer, from trekking, sailing, canoeing, riding, fishing and bird watching. Back at the hotel, the spa is fantastic and offers a wide range of massages and treatments, as well as a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, Scottish shower and a Pilates bed (the only one in the region).
