They have upgraded the rooms since I was last there 10yrs ago. Pleasent staff at Reception. Rooms were lovely and tidy. A few things that caught my attention was the sad Shower pressure. Not sure if it was just our room? The heater was a tad noisey when it kicked in to reheat the room. Panel Heater would have been... More

We stayed at the Lakeland recently for two nights. $85 per night for two in a recently refurbished motel style studio. Very clean and comfortable. We had dinner there the first night....and the steak was cooked to perfection. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. We will stay there again. The pool is unheated, so was closed for the winter, but... More

Traveling In March with my mum we were told by family and friends we wouldn't need to book in advance... As we drove into town all we saw were no vacancy signs! The girls on the front desk were extremely friendly and helpful even offering us to look at the rooms before booking. I've never had a hotel offer this.... More

At $99 a night for a double room this was worth checking out. Reception was excellent, the room was as advertised, that is recently refurbished , bright and airy. Good sized bathroom with large shower. Tea and coffee making in the room. The 42 inch TV made the afternoon sport easy to watch. The only downside was the noisy fan... More

We stayed here just for a night. Room was very big, HUGE TV on the wall ( was a hit with the other half ), very clean and beds where comfortable :) free wifi was good! Only negative point was that you needed to drive into the town to the bars and restaurants... Walked in and it took 35mins. Would... More

We stayed on two occasions recently. Arriving late both evenings the receptionist put the heater on so we arrived to a lovely warm room. Bathrooms recently renovated in both rooms we had. The tariff represented good value. Free WiFi was appreciated. Units were quiet and we will certainly return. We did not make it to the restaurant for breakfast so... More

Lakeland is a solid performer. The rooms are large, well heated with large flat screen TVs. The spa baths are a great bonus - especially in winter months. The beds aren't the most comfortable and the shower pressure isn't great - but I've had much worse in better places and I managed a good nights sleep. The staff are excellent... More
