Amazing views of the lake and so close but the interior of the room was dated and needs a real make over .expensive at $199 studio room. Very basic with no extras, bed and pillows hard. Needs a facelift and I would return.

All rooms have recently been completely renovated in a "retro" style including new paint,floor coverings,tiled bathrooms,new bedding easy chairs etc. - so not sure where you are coming from? Beds are top of the range commercial beds (we sleep on one ourselves) & include a firm & soft pillow on each bed. Tariff is appropriate to high end lake edge...

Great hotel, friendly staff. Rooms were large and comfortable. Lake view was brilliant. Hotel was 5 minutes to town, about a 20 minutes walk. Close to hot thermal pools. Outdoor pool was nice, a bit warm at 30 degrees.

The husband and I booked this place because of it's proximity to the lake and the beautiful view! We enjoyed our 2 nights here. Only grouse are the flying ants around the lights outside the unit and no lift. But we loved it here so much they don't matter that much!

We are pleased your selection proved ideal for the occasion & thank you for taking the time do your review. I'm afraid the "Lake Flies" are attracted to light then they just seem to die. They are very seasonal but in abundance at this time of year.

Location is wonderful - positioned right on the lake-front with steaming sand just beyond the units. The lake-front walkway passes in front - great for walkers and joggers.There is a cafe serving coffee, breakfast and lunch next door, so no need to go to town.

We spent one night here in one of the family rooms. The room was very quiet as it is tucked away off the road behind another motel. The room was clean and comfortable. The second bedroom small but adequate. The spa tube right next to the bed was a bit odd. The view of the lake from the private deck...
