I have so many praises to the owner of this motel.

Me and My family loved staying at Jack & Di's last week for two days. Apart from the lovely scenic views and of course free kayaks and spa. It was Ian who made our stay wonderful. Spacious and clean rooms and had everything to make your stay comfortable. Would definitely visit again. !!!

I couldn't believe my luck to stay in a place like this, right by the lake which was full of black swans, beautiful and peaceful. Kayaks are freely available to use at your pleasure and I recommend sitting out at night with a tinnie, looking at the moon and listening to the crickets, gorgeous!

There is a big BBQ area which would be perfect in summer, there is a large heater if it gets cool in the evening. It is... More

Located in a quiet suburban street across the road from the lake. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit which had plenty of space for our family of five, including extra beds in the lounge. Although the motel was fully booked out during the whole five nights we stayed, noise was at a minimum - of course dependent on how... More
