The hotel is very clean, there is a great view to the lake. The rooms are huge including all the applies. There is also a very nice hot tab. Paul the manager is a really cool and nice person! He helped us a lot with finding a lot of information we couldn't find elsewhere.

Paul and Sue are fantastic owners and hosts at Cascade comfort Inn. A great location. Cyclist friendly and very accommodating. The rooms are a great size and very clean and well looked after. Wifi is free but does have some intermittent issues. Great place to stay and very reasonable prices

On the positive side our room was large and clean. Free WiFi was provided and there was something of a lake view but not exactly what we expected. Unfortunately the kitchenette and bathroom both are very dated and in need of refurbishment. Another thing we felt misled about is the view. The photos on the website make it look like... More

Fast check in, the room was spacious with a good layout. There is a spa bath as well as a shower, the kitchen takes up a small corner but has most of what you need to make yourself breakfast, the bed has heating. The heater stopped running and they quickly came to fix it. Greeted by smiling faces when checking... More

I spend a night here in and what a wonderful establishment, from the heated swimming pool to the views of the lake. Checking in was a joyful and very friendly experience, you really felt welcome. I would most definitely return for a stay.

We've just got back from a wonderful weekend here. We had a large group (girls soccer team), so 19 guests in total. The rooms were fantastic, clean, well equipped, with lovely private courtyards. We highly recommend Family Room No 1. It's absolutely on the actual lake edge, and is gorgeous. The owners were an absolute pleasure to deal with, and... More

Slightly delayed review. We stayed here in December last year and quite liked it. It's not very close to the town center, but there are cabs very easily available. It cost us around $13 one way I think. Walking it took us around 15 minutes. It's right on the lake and lives up to the standard of NZ motels. The... More

I stayed for 2 nights October 2014 with my husband and young children in a large family suite. The room was clean and well presented though some features were well dated and need attention, for example the bathroom, having a shower curtain to avoid while showering is certainly not ideal. However the kitchen was functional, and the amenities provided in... More

Nice spacious rooms with a spa bath in room. We stayed for 2 nights and had a room near the heated pool which the children loved. Room was clean and the kitchen had everything that we needed. Great location- close to town and easy to find. Owners are lovely, we were greeted and farewelled with a smile.Would definitely stay here... More

Tidy and clean, managers only too happy to help. Great inside space for adults to get some space away from the kids. Loved getting breakfast delivered the night before. BBQ was nice and clean. Don't forget to book your time in the spa.
