Exceptional 10.0
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.

Exceptional 10.0
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.

Excellent value, a great find

Very good 8.0
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.
