Near the beach and lakeside walk. 15 minutes on foot to most bars and restaurants .
We had a bedroom and sitting room with kitchen in it. The equipment adequate but tired but all clean and fresh towels every day.

Well equipped but no air con although there was a portable fan which struggled to do the job as outside temp was in the high 20's. Badly let down by the bathroom which was the smallest we have ever experienced. Wash basin was a small hand basin only good for washing hands and not much else. Location is good, handy to Lake and a nice restaurant just around the corner. There was a full sized fridge/freezer. There were two ice trays in the freezer but alas they were empty. Some ice for a cold drink upon arrival would have been great. They are not alone with this. Seems to be the norm with most places, ice trays but empty. Main put off was incredibly small ensuite
Wont be back there.

Great location with the lake just at the bottom of the road. Studio unit appointed well, no air conditioning though. Limited parking available but great value for the price. A good, comfortable stay .

The location of the motel was perfect - a short walk to the lake and a pleasant 10 - 15 mins lakeside walk to the town centre, with some bars and restaurants closer than that.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful and there was a small heated pool at the sister property next door, which we could have used (but didn’t)
The actual apartment was small and very tired looking. Reasonably clean, but in desperate need of a refurb, in my opinion.
We clearly stated upon booking that we were 3 adults, and whilst we did know that one of the beds was a sofa bed, it proved to be completely unusable as a bed. The mattress was paper thin and my son could feel every spring. He had no choice but to revert it to a sofa and just sleep on that, using the bedding provided for the sofa bed.
I did feed back the issues with the bed to the staff upon check out, in a nice, constructive way, not as a complaint, but they said that they would have told us it was only suitable for children, not adult use, had we booked directly with the motel, by phone.
However, our booking via Booking.com clearly stated that the booking was for 3 adults! And If my son had been a child, I would have expected a comfortable bed to have been provided, not just a paper thin, uncomfortable mattress, however old he was!
To be fair, it was very cheap, so we have no major issue with the property, for the price we paid. Just thought they ought to know their sofa bed needed replacing!

Room was fine and catered for our group although some areas need urgent attention. Curtains were mouldy, toilet roll holder was hanging off the wall, net curtains could have done with a bleach or a change. Parking slots need to be clear for rooms.
Maintenance staff are great - Office staff need skills in PR and a smile wouldn't have gone amiss.
Only motel I've stayed in where Laundry service is free - Very good.
