    Can't beat the warm outdoor pool after a day of activity (biking/ walking) around the lake. The BBQ and self catering facilities are excellent and lends itself to larger groups doing their own thing... will no doubt be back for the Round The Lake Relay.

    We stayed here over New Year. We were pleasantly met with a very clean Unit which was serviced daily and midway through our stay had a full bed linen change also. The proprietors were approachable and happy to assist with any queries.

    From the moment we arrived we were treated like friends. The rooms were cozy, clean and so comfortable. Our room had full lake views with great wooden furniture, perfect for dinner and a wine, we had a thermal pool in our room....

    Motel located near the lake front. Rooms very spacious and comfy, with a thermal bath in each room (takes 45 minutes to fill and not comfy to sit in!). No food available at motel but could be nice in high season to use the BBQ...More
