    Welcoming friendly and helpful

    The owner was really helpful and upgraded us to a larger room at no extra charge. The beds were really comfortable and the room felt cosy and welcoming. The owner also recommended the local hot river which was great!

    Consistently excellent

    Have stayed at The Lake Motel many times and it is always spot on. Clean, tidy, quiet, quirky design features, comfortable, good value for money and lovely hosts. I can’t recommend The Lake highly enough.

    Convenient pet friendly motel.

    Friendly welcoming owner. We travelled with our small dog and had one of the pet friendly units which was clean and comfortable but the noisy fridge woke us several times during the night. The unit was close to a busy road and had no fencing, ok for a dog with road sense but we just had to keep doors closed or keep ours on a leash.

    We were traveling with our dog and needed somewhere pet friendly and off the main road. The Lake fitted the bill well and was good value. We'll stay there again on our way home. There was a great cafe for brunch very close by.

    Retro with modern comforts

    The accommodation was spacious with great effort made to honour the retro theme. Would have been very comfortable for an extended stay.
