We booked this hotel believing it to be renovated and of a reasonable standard. The hotel and room was nothing as advertised and of a very poor standard. We refused to stay in the room given and reported the issues we had to the reception staff. This included - An old bed that dipped in the middle with crushed bedding... More

The place doesn't look too nice from outside but the rooms are clean, bed comfortable, reception staff friendly. This place is right across the road from the lake. U can hire a boat and go fishing or just enjoy a day out on the water. If u are looking for a little weekend away and don't want to spend much... More

There was hair in the bathroom, coffee stains down the curtains and garbage stuff down the side of cupboards. The lights didn't work, the bathroom door didn't close and the bed linen was ripped. I asked for additional towels and was... More

We booked in based on a god Scoop-on deal and a reasonable set of photos on the website. Starting with the rusting sign out front (with signs on it warning you to stay away - presumably in case it fell down), the place reminded me of something out of a bad movie. The room itself was not clean with dust/grime... More

We were very worried about staying here after the reviews but I have to say they were mostly wrong. The unit we had was very clean and tidy, all the staff we in counted, from the office to the cleaners were friendly and very helpful, it is not a 5 star resort but the new management is slowly renovating and...
