Lovely to stay in a such well appointed and comfortable accommodation. The team are welcoming and are there for the guests with cheerful greetings and smiles. The standard of housekeeping is exceptionally high. Pool and hot pool are most relaxing with lovely view from hot pool. Would definitely recommend especially for families.

Stayed 2 nights in December on our way south. So nice to stay in a hotel with brand new rooms. Clean, tidy, comfy. Will stay again! The hosts were lovely and I liked the touch of getting a complimentary bottle of water for our trip when we left. The kids also got sweets too!

We arrived at noon unexpectedly, the lady in reception was more then accommodating to assist us. Our room became available within 30 minutes. Room was spacious, clean and quiet with modern fittings. Lovely flow to BBQ area, pool & spa. With a view of the lake. Would defiantly stay again.

The place was packed with families so the central pool area got pretty busy. It shuts at 8 pm ish which is good because the noise really... More
