Privacy not great, noisy, had to request basic things like toilet paper, cold shower on last day of stay, was not provided with milk. While the view was excellent it was spoiled by the fact we had to keep the curtain closed to maintain privacy.

Website is misleading - we booked and paid for a studio lake front upper level room because the website states airconditioned - this was not the case. When we contacted reception and told them this the suggestion was to open the balcony door. The room was really uncomfortably hot. Lovely lake view, but really close to the walkway which means people can see right into your room. When standing on our balcony we could see right into your neighbours room. I was also asked for my vaccine pass which was no problem for us but could be for others - probably something people should know at the time of booking. Disappointing stay.

Great place right on waters edge but secure from passing people by a small wall. We stayed in a lake view room which came with a spa and small kitchenette. Very comfortable bed with no noise in the room from outside.

We had the 1 bedroom unit which was really well presented. The lake is on your back door which was really cool. There is a pool which is nothing to write home about but my son didn’t mind. The fill in staff at the time were very friendly and helpful. All in all great value for money.

What a fantastic place to stay - we had an upstairs corner front room right on the lake - walking track outside so always something to see along with the water activity - accommodation had everything we needed and was spotlessly clean. Lovely hosts who made us very welcome- would highly recommend.
