          Stayed for a few nights while in town for a wedding and thoroughly recommend it if you require a very clean, comfortable Motel with good amenities. It has great lake access without crossing any roads and Lilly, Sonya and Michael are lovely hosts.

          We really enjoyed our stay and enjoyed the complimentary upgrade (in off peak season). Close to the lake and beautifully decorated cottages. Thanks to Sonja for looking after our family and setting up the room for bub.
