very comfortable, well-equipped and roomy motel for a couple of nights; pity the weather wasn't good enough for us to enjoy the heated pools; obliging managers; access from car parks is rather tight when all occupied

Hi there diner124, We very much appreciate you placing your review on Trip Advisor regarding your stay here with us. We are glad that you enjoyed the large, modern and well equipped rooms, along with our heated pools. We do appreciate that our car parks are tight, but I think that is also a problem made worse with larger vehicles....

Bed was comfortable and the view of the lake from our second floor unit, was unobstructed and simply breathtaking. If I had one negative,...
