My only complaint was that I thought we just had a few yards to walk to the Lake, but that was private land so we had to walk along the road a fair distance before accessing the lake. It is a shame that so much of the lake access...

Thank you for your review of our hotel. We are happy that you had a good experience while staying with us. The nearest public beach access is less than one mile away. Like you, we wish that there was less private access too. I will make sure to convey your comments about our "welcoming and friendly staff" to my co-workers.

We were welcomed with a friendly smile and were pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness of the room. The room was clean and had a very nice compact kitchenette. I thought it was a great idea that the pillowcases are embroidered with the firmness of the pillows they contained. No guessing if the pillow is just right! We requested a ground...

Stayed here 2 nights, lovely hotel and well designed. Rooms spacious and comfortable, reception was modern and breakfast area pleasant. Used the indoor spa which was fine, sauna seemed to take ages to warm up and in the end switched it off. Great laundry facilities for us travelling Brits getting laundry washed and dried for $2. Happily stay here again
