Great hotel
This is a lovely hotel with a great view and location. The king room overlooking the lake was top notch and quite a self contained little apartment. The hosts Peter and Penny are friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

A great place with a lovely, chatty Duty Manager. The homebaked cookies and the fresh, Hawkes Bay apples were a cosy, welcome treat. I am already rebooked for this motel
