This hotel far exceeded my expectations. I booked a 2bed penthouse and was upgraded to a 3 bed penthouse. Although we didn't need the extra room, it meant that we had the best view from the balcony overlooking the lake and back into the town centre. The apartment had everything you could possibly need. Including Ipod docking station, free wifi.... More

We stayed in a beautiful 3 bedroom lake view apartment with a large deck & outdoor spa. 2 bedrooms had ensuites, plus a separate 3rd bathroom. Living space was very big and very tastefully furnished (contemporary style decor, super comfortable large couches). Large kitchen, plenty of bench space, all the basic utensils/crockery you need if eating in. Apartment came with... More

Clean, lots of space. Good views ofthelake. Hot tub on balcony a nice bonus. Underfloor heating, and well equipped apartments -- good just for an overnight, or to use as a base for a week in the area with family.

We had 3 nights in the 3 bedrooom Lakefront apartment in April. We were just blown away when we walked in, the views are amazing, uninterrupted across the entire lake. Beautiful tranquil spot. The unit has a full kitchen, dining and lounge area, underfloor heating, and a thermal spa on the verandah!! We didn't use this but it looked great.... More

For us it was a last minute decision to head away for the weekend and we were keen to find something with a separate sleeping area for our 5 year old daughter so she'd settle. The Sacred Waters was just a little more $ wise than a bedsit style room at the Millenium or a 2 bed at the campground... More

We had an amazing 3 bed frontline lake view apartment & it was fantastic. Everything from the stunning view to the wonderful furnishings & amenities was perfect. Very spacious, ultra modern, chic & spotless!! My only disappointment was that we only had 1 night booked, but we will go back!
