We didn't stay there - the place was full anyway - but Chris is very keen on staying there some day as the former convent is situated on Lake Dus and you have the rowing boats at your disposal. We talked to the owners, who told us the rooms are located in the building of the convent and have showers and toilets. Boarding is available.
It's a great place for walking and I think you can also go for a swim in the lake but the water was not warm enough when we visited.
The only disadvantage might be the groups of tourists visiting as the convent is well known but they seldom go down to the lake so you can enjoy some privacy anyway. On the other hand, they can make your stay more interesting, especially if you enjoy people-watching.
You can find more about the convent itself in my Things to Do tips.
