    Lakefront motel

    We stayed in a very comfortable and quiet one bedroom unit with beautiful lakefront views.

  • 6.0.Good

    Stay was good, only downside was a definite musty smell when we arrived. The owner was called and thought it was the waste disposal, but after putting cleaner down that it reduced but was still there. They had no vacancies, so we put up with it. But the cleaners should have fixed it or reported it before we arrived.

    Overall is very good. Just one drawback, we have four people but it only offers one bed, another one is a sofa bed.

    Lovely holiday spot

    This is a really great motel, well located directly across the road from the lake so we had a wonderful view. We could even see the mountain which was lovely until the weather closed in. We had a two bedroom unit and it was a wonderful surprise to find it also had two bathrooms! Lovely comfortable beds with good linen and the whole unit stayed nice and cosy with the one heatpump. We would definitely stay again

    Lovely view of the lake and very handy to town. Clean and was great to have a separate bedroom for reasonable price.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Was disappointed as it was across the road from the lake with no lake view from our unit. Also was expecting a spa bath as per the photos but just a standard bathroom with a shower only
