Had a lovely stay at The Coachman Motor Inn. The owner Rick was extremely helpful and even let us borrow his own bikes instead of paying a hire fee in other parts of the town, thank you very much! Short walk to the entrance town centre and right next to the lake. Interior is slightly dated but very clean and... More

This is a small motel, it has originally been a home. Perhaps about 7 units.
