We booked but couldn't travel due to illness. Confusing cancellation policy - we understood it was 48 hours but when we called were told this excluded the time period we were booked for. We asked if we could swap our stay to another time instead but were refused. This was the only hotel on our trip that insisted on charging us rather than using their discretion to allow us to cancel or swap.

We stayed extra for the unit with the spa. It was very nice with a comfy king bed upstairs with the spa bath in the ensuite bathroom. There was a tv in the bedroom as well. The curtains could be more blockout as it let light in from the outside street. There was a lovely view of the lake. Downstairs had everything we needed with a good kitchen, lounge and dining area. There is a second bathroom downstairs with a shower. It is very close to town and restaurants. We had trouble connecting to the wifi but the owners were able to connect my husband then mine had to log into their admin. We never had trouble with wifi in any of the other motels we stayed in over the last week. We had lunch at Dixie Browns and had no trouble with their wifi.

We originally booked for one night but actually stayed for two. This is located a short walk from the centre of town but has good views over the lake. The room was large and clean and offers great value for money. The whirlpool bath was a nice added bonus.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom family apartment. The master bedroom upstairs was very spacious and the king bed was big and comfortable. It had its own balcony with a beautiful view of the lake. The upstairs rooms got very warm because the AC was downstairs, but the hotel provided 3 fans and we slept well. Fully stocked kitchen. We easily walked to many wonderful restaurants and a grocery store, and the lake was right across the street. The management was particularly friendly and helpful and did our laundry for a low price. The shower did not drain well so you couldn't let the water run too long. But I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

A clean and tidy motel with pretty much everything you need. Chosen for its location and wasn’t disappointed. Great staff who were very accommodating. Good deals on rooms too. Plenty of space in the rooms.
