Loved the location, you cannot get closer to the lake front or centre of town. Very accommodating and friendly owner who let us check in early so I could get our car fixed. Also provided additional bed when we turned up with an extra person for 1 night. Room was adequate for our stay, all we needed was a bed, bathroom and cooking facilities. It was great to have a pool and spa there which our kids used just the once (only because of no time) . Kitchen utensils need updating and has the bare minimum, but each time we asked the owner for something additional he was very obliging. It is a bit tired and each unit is a bit different but it is priced accordingly. If you want a budget motel close to town, this is it.

The room was expensive and the view out of the window was of table legs. The mattress was sagging in the middle so we decided to turn it over. We then discovered that the mattress protector had two large urine stains on it and a blood stain. There was no conditioner available and the heat pump wasn’t working. It switched on but didn’t warm up.

Chose his accommodation because it was dog friendly. The check-in experience was enjoyable. Gerard is friendly, humble and happy. We stayed in the two bedroom unit on the ground floor. When we returned from getting dinner, the heat pump had been turned on so our room was warm. Much appreciated as it was cold out. Facilities are great - Indoor pool, spa, sauna and a few exercise machines. It was so good, we returned on our way home 2 weeks later. Highly recommend this place for no fuss, very comfortable, well maintained, friendly and reasonably priced accommodation.

Pros: Excellent customer service Great location Has the potential to be a really great place Cons: Very tired Seems to be run by one man - lots to be done. There was boxes of empty bottles when we arrived and still there when we left. Bags of laundry left out. Bits of rubbish not picked up. Over all the whole place needs a good tidy up, maintenance and some love.

We stayed in the two bedroom unit. The people there was ultra nice at reception and helped us with anything we needed. Our frying pan did not work and they replaced it with a new one. The stove top hardly works but did not bother us much with the electric frying pan. Had a very nice working fridge. We got clean towels daily but had to do our own dishes and beds. Outside area was very good. Wi-fi could be better. Must say, we were there while they were extremely busy. A bit dated but comfortable. Would anytime stay there again. Location was the best.
