The balcony view is everything here!
Pro's: AMAZING view from the balcony from our room. So lucky! Very helpful owners resolved wi-fi issue. Spacious, clean room. Con's: Room fittings were a tad tired. Luck plays a part in everything, the back rooms have an amazing view, the front have a busy road undergoing roadworks.

Lake view room is amazing
The view is amazing from the room. I watched the beautiful sunset from the balcony. Highly recommend lake view room. Free onsite parking is very convenient. Location is good and only 5 min drive to the town centre. Sound proof is a bit less than perfect so bring your earplugs if you are light sleepers.

Older style motel with very large rooms and bathrooms. View of the lake from side window of room 1 though the room faces the street which was a nice bonus! Laundry with large washers and dryers was handy as we were halfway through our trip
