We were recommended dinner at the Albatross just down the road and were not disappointed with the meal. Thank you for the best sleep we have... More

The friendly staff couldn't do enough for us, close to good cafes and restaurants, nice riverside pub less than five minutes stroll down the road, very clean and well maintained, complimentary use of kayaks and other water sporting gear... we'll be back!

WE stayed here for 3 nights with my Mum and Dad, they had a unit on the first floor and us on the second. Only problem with this block of units is there are no lifts, so be warned if you have a lot of gear or someone who isn't really fit. That is where the negativity ends. The owner/managers... More
