    Won’t stay again

    Horrible experience with service. Would not acknowledge problem and even told us we should book elsewhere.

    Comfy beds and a Great Welcome

    Great welcome and rooms were freshly painted. Beds were very comfy. Aircon was a bit tired but the fans worked well during our 4 night stay. I had called ahead to request a ground floor unit for my elderly parents and they reorganised things to accommodate us. Very grateful for that.

    Comfortable stay

    Great location, super 2 bed unit. The bed was comfortable, linen and towels too. The unit was well equipped, though we did not need them. Close to the centre, lake and eating places. I have stayed there before and will do so again.

    We had a 2-bedroom villa, separate from the main motel block. Clean, spacious and comfortable - it was perfect for what we needed for 2 nights with good kitchen facilities. The shower has fantastic water pressure!!
