Very good 8.0
While heat pump was installed in the living room, only electric blanket was available in the room with the bed. Other than that, was a great motel overall and would definitely return on our next visit.

SIMPLY THE BEST
Amazing Holiday at Sails on the Lake. We can't that our hosts enough for going out of their way to make us very comfortable during our stay. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much
stephen, nz4 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Great Location but ZERO WI FI AND INTERNET CONNECT
Great location and nice office staff. However, ZERO Wi-Fi connection. If you don't need internet connection, then it is a good hotel but if you need internet and email connection, stay somewhere else. Lots of lakeside options to choose from that probably have better, or functioning, wi-fi connections. It was a very frustrating experience for me.

Exceptional 10.0
Lovely hotel with stunning views
Very helpful gentleman on reception, gave us information about where to visit Room was lovely, room 14 has great views across the lake. Room was very spacious and clean, as was the bathroom. Tea and coffee was plentiful, with percolated coffee if required. Nice balcony with table and chairs. We would definitely stay here again

Views of the lake
A gorgeous clean hotel with lovely views of the lake. It is a walk from the town along the shore of the lake but is nicely peaceful as a result. The apartment is exactly as pictured and described with all facilities. The checkin was friendly and efficient.
Jill, gb2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
The reception person was very helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Ideal location for the lake and the town.
