We stopped overnight at this Motel. It is nice and clean and airey and we had a room on the front with a balcony which looked over the Lake. It is very pleasant and close to Restaurants, cafes and shops. Good for a night or a week if you are in the holiday mode.

Staff were nice, but this is a bit tired, air conditioning did not work! Lights came on but that was about it. Had a cold shower the first morning as they were changing over the water heater and the plumber apparently turned the hot water off! Found the room to be stuffy. When I told the lady that there was... More

Upon check in the lady that served us was very helpful, and as we were working overnight, a late check out was arranged in advance. Fees for the late checkout were explained clearly and agreed upon at the time of check in. Unfortunately there appears to have been a miscommunication with the man working the morning shift at reception, as... More

Walking distance to the town centre and located in front the lake. Nice and friendly staff. Neat and tidy spaces room. Restaurant provided ok food but nice dessert. Noisy fridge during the night, it needed to be replaced. A little bit noisy in the morning.

Great Hotel to stay in. I with my wife have travelled all over Europe twice a year for the last 10 years and this hotel although is small is a great hotel and value for money. The balcony rooms are for a small extra fee have a very good view of the lake

Just a stopover with a large group of mates travelling on motorbikes through to Canberra for the Police Wall to Wall ride for remembrance. Lovely spot opposite the lake and a very short walk to the shops and restaurants. Had dinner at the local RSL (great value) but the restaurant in the hotel looked really nice, if not a bit... More
