What we found was excellent customer service and a beautiful clean room, excellent views and comfortable beds (not that it mattered, we would have slept on the floor by this stage!). We... More

Room was great, good location, clean and good facilities, friendly welcome on arrival. Only downside was the free wireless internet which we couldn't get working on any of our three devices (both Apple and Android). When we raised this at checkout got a shrug of the shoulders and an "Oh well..." pretty disappointing attitude. One of my pet peeves is... More

a beautifully presented and maintained property, immaculately clean with tasteful furnishings. The upstairs studio was comfortable and spacious with gorgeous lake and mountain views. Loved everything about it.

Excellent stay at this motel.The only thing we were disappointed in which was due to a new boiler system (not the fault of the motel itself)was we didn't get to enjoy the lovely big spa bath as the water wasn't hot enough to have a hot bath or shower. Overall the room was extremely clean, comfortable & had lovely decor.... More

We rang at 10.30pm and arrived at midnight to lovely warm rooms with all the comforts of home. The manager accommodated our party of 8 at a moment's notice late at night. Everything was better than expected and at a fair price.
