We have been going for three years now and enjoy it all the time. Others have been going for years. Always a good atmosphere and its just one big party. Bring on 2015 New Year's... More

I would like to reply by getting some of the facts straight. 1. You did not have your event at the Inn on the Lake, and therefore your friend did not get drunk at the Inn on the Lake. 2. We are not responsible for deciding who is fit to drive or not. I would think that as this person... More

We were attending a surprise 70th birthday for an old friend and this place was in the ideal location. When we arrived the reception was full of ladies of varying age trying to check in, we felt sorry for the receptionist who was very patient with them as they all seemed to not know who was sharing with who and...

We have stayed here 7 or 8 times over the last 18 months for work purposes. This place has always been a bit tatty and there is usually something wrong with the fixtures and fittings, things like missing power socket covers, huge recent bleach stains on the carpet (at least they are using bleach). The towels are ancient and the... More

After reading a few reviews after booking 4 rooms, I was a bit worried about staying. True, the rooms could be a bit more modern, but they were all clean and all of us had a comfortable night's sleep. There was some noise from other guests returning to their rooms, but once they'd settled in, it was nice and quiet.... More
