Very dated, smell in bathroom, cold, (the heating is loud) net curtains that don't meet the windows, and artificial flowers. Silly curtain on the door, the light still gets in. Bed small and uncomfortable.

Must say we loved this place! The friendly hosts gave great suggestions as to local activities and the place is super clean and has great views of the lake and handy to the waters edge and town...will stay again for sure! Ultimate location with off street parking too

Nice accommodation, comfy bed and everything you would expect. Excellent location, if weather were better we would have walked along lake. Room could use some work on details. The room has obviously been updated, but finishing a little sloppy in areas.

Hi Thanks for your review, we are still working on the finishing touches on our rooms and the upstairs units ( due to the inclement weather ) have only had some of the ceilings re done. The downstairs units are now literally complete with the new paintwork, carpet and drapes. We are still awaiting new furniture however I think these must be "on the slow boat from somewhere" Hoping you return to see us when we are totally done with our update Kind Regards

We were here at Rm3 on a cold winter day. The parking area was tight. When we arrived at the motel, the room was well-warmed-up by a wall heater. Everything seemed to be in place. Unfortunately, during the night, the heater was terribly noisy & woke me up every time when it was automatically turned on when the room temperature became low. Apart from this, I was reasonably satisfied with our stay.
Thank 1pochette

Thanks for your review - we can only fix a problem if and when we are made aware of it and after your stay another guest asked about the heater and how the thermostat worked. Due to the construction of the building we are unable to install full air conditioning but we are now trialling a new style of wall heater which we gather from guests does not seem to have any impact on sleep when the thermostat turns the heating on. I am sorry that this spoiled your stay with us Kind Regards
