        The lady at reception was really welcoming and friendly. Milk is offered for tea & coffee on arrival. Room was very clean and well presented. The teppenyaki restaurant on site was really fun and yum! Right across from the lake which has a nice boardwalk and also conveniently located to shops & cafes etc Only downside was that if someone was watching tv in the next room you could hear it quite loudly in our room but didn’t bother us too much as it was turned off at a reasonable time. Fridge is quite small if you planned on having an extended stay and buying your own food. But overall great motel and good value for money

        Have stayed here a few times. Great location right on the water with beautiful walking path along the water. Easy access to local shops and restaurants. Nice pool area with pizza oven. Japanese restaurant on site can be a little noisy later in the evening. Easy parking for larger cars (we had a trailer) out the back. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

        Great value for money!”

        After a very warm welcome at reception I went and found my lovely Queen room. The room was clean and spacious. The bathroom was bright and roomy with everything stocked. The walk in shower had a higher than normal shower head which was FANTASTIC as most motel rooms I have to crouch under the shower head. The TV was huge, and the location is great. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

        Pros - near the water which was nice for walks. Bed was comfortable and room was generally quite nice & cleanly. Water view from room was nice. Cons - there was a smell in the bathroom drain that was almost unbearable. Although there is plenty of parking it would be nice to have designated car spaces.

        Great location by the Lake. Staff always very friendly and accessible and good facilities. Currently being upgraded but not to our detriment. Room was clean and tidy although lack of dedicated car spaces meant we often had to park a long way from our unit. Pleasant, shady pool and reasonable price. We recommend and will return.

        location location location

        below average - did not meet our expectation. We checked in late, we couldn't find the room at first. The room felt old apart from the refurb bathroom. Kids didn't feel too safe and was hesitant to sleep in the second room. When checking out the receptionist questioned that I had nothing to pay. Would we stay here again? Absolutely not. Not worth the money we got charged.

        Road hostel”

        It is simply a road hostel with cockroaches in the bathroom, harmer-like sound from 6am on a saturday morning.

        Pleasant stay.”

        Friendly staff, great location, nice pool

        Great location by the Lake. Staff always very friendly and accessible and good facilities. Currently being upgraded but not to our detriment. Room was clean and tidy although lack of dedicated car spaces meant we often had to park a long way from our unit. Pleasant, shady pool and reasonable price. We recommend and will return.

        disappointing, & not worth the money I paid for”

        location location location

        below average - did not meet our expectation. We checked in late, we couldn't find the room at first. The room felt old apart from the refurb bathroom. Kids didn't feel too safe and was hesitant to sleep in the second room. When checking out the receptionist questioned that I had nothing to pay. Would we stay here again? Absolutely not. Not worth the money we got charged.
