We stayed for 2 nights and had no preconceptions about the resort. Our room was clean and adequate, if not 'resort' level in presentation but that suited us fine. We upgraded to the "Spa Suite" which turns out meant we had a 2 person (just) spa bath on the smallish deck of our cabin that was constructed (adjoined/connected) as one... More

Good facilities but a little overpriced considering it's more money for canoe hire and more again for golf and mini golf. No reason why this couldn't be part of the accommodation. Also got to factor in meals and it adds up quickly.

Got to our room and was disappointed. Promote itself as a resort but the room was a standard caravan park style cabin. The TV did not work. The bathroom smelled like sewerage and the pool was tiny and nowhere near resort style. No WiFi or phone reception. We were there for an hour or so when the power went out.... More

We were here for 2 nights. The location is absolutely beautifull. The sunset is gorgeous. The food in the restaurant is good,The breakfast is average, the service was very friendly. The room was clean. But then the mixed feeling on the grounds. It feels that you're going back in the 70 's ( But it is build in the 90's...)... More

I made this booking for my partner and I and while the service on all counts was great, that's pretty much where it ended. The rooms, for starters, are very below average. I booked a Spa "suite" , this was nothing like a suite. We walked around and thought "we must be missing something". The pool is tiny and we... More

Stayed here for a conference in August. Absolutely loved the resort it's in a great place and is very relaxing. Had a lakefront suite, the rooms were well appointed and it's a nice touch having a jacuzzi on the balcony. Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Booking in for a 3 day mid-week break for husband and I in a Lakeview Suite had its moments. The room was comfortable and clean with an amazing view. However, we had the first Suite which required removing the outside light to deter bugs, toads and more bugs. The first night was spent getting bugs off the bed and out... More

Stayed for one Night. Food was exellent and service is great. Rooms are very clean. Not a lot of Tourist around, I liked that. It was a bid to cold to swimm in the Lake, but the small Pool was very refreshing and clean.

On our arrival we found us to be the only couple at the resort so our dinner was served to us in our room. This suited us after being on the road most of the day. We did not receive any house cleaning for our 2 night stay and got provided with extra towels etc. Would have thought that would... More
