Well located Motel, far enough away from the busy part of town but close enough to take advantage of the restaurants etc around the lake. well maintained and well managed. Units are very comfortable with small kitchenette. Beds in the rooms are nice and comfortable. Would recommend this Inn.

Very friendly host that could just make your day. The host is also knowledgeable and very helpful in suggesting places of interest, activities and also places to find good food. The room is clean, spacious, spa in bathroom and commendable kitchen facility. Wouldn't think twice to come back in my next trip.

The new owners are doing an impressive job here. We had a second floor unit. The kitchen was fully equipped. There were lots of electrical outlets throughout. The room was large. It is located centrally on a busy street, so it is easy to get around from here. Note that you only get 100 mbs free on WiFi.

Lovely room with spa bathroom, very comfortable and beautifully clean. We have stayed here before and would have no hesitation in recommending this motel to others. New owners were very welcoming and helpful.

We only stayed one night, but our stay was memorable. We ordered breakfast and it was delicious, it came right on time. The room is spacious with main master bedroom and bed in living area. The spa bath was lovely. Very happy with our stay and would stay again.

Spent a night here as we traveled north. My wife was quite ill with a cold and we needed a place to break the trip where she could rest up. The Ascot fitted the bill perfectly. Its a newish complex, the rooms are nicely appointed with comfortable beds, and a kitchenette. Check in was a breeze with the new owners... More

we stayed 2 nights in a studio room, comfortable, clean and spacious. Owners very friendly and helpful. Conveniently located, a short walk to the lake and town centre, with a small supermarket directly opposite. Can highly recommend.

The room was clean, spacious, modern, and had everything we needed! it was our honeymoon and the hosts made us feel extra special with rose pedals, chocolates, etc. They took time to talk with us and show us where things were in the town. This was one of our favorite places to stay during our two week vacation!
