Very clean and tidy, nothing looked worn or outdated. Very nice hosts. Not far to the city centre ( less than 10 mins drive). Right on the lake. It was really cold so I was glad there were electric blankets and 2 heaters. The room had everything we needed.We would definitely stay again.

We had a studio room, which was fine for the two of us. The heater warmed up the room efficiently. The kitchenette had a fridge, microwave and electric frying pan (no oven or hob, so plan meals accordingly). The setting was quiet and peaceful, with the lake sitting just metres away from the rooms. The main part of the town... More

Me, my brother, my mum and my dad came to this fantastic place. Our room was particularly cosy and all 3 of the beds (2 singles and a double) had an electric blanket, which was lucky because it was cold. It was right by a nice lake and it had a spa, a pool, a playground and a place to... More

Stayed here as part of a work trip to the Xterra Games in April 2016. Units were clean and tidy, and the location was great with access to the lake. Not so good for access to town, if you don't have transport - it is located on the far side of the lake, beyond the airport. There aren't many amenities... More

First and foremost, you can't go wrong no matter what with the absolutely lovely owners of this property. Every moment of interaction was so enjoyable and pleasant. Yes, it is a bit further out of town, but not so bad. Very clean, very well maintained and beautiful location right on the lake. So happy that we chose this hotel over... More

Location was out of town centre a little which meant it was nice and quiet. Rooms were clean and comfortable and well stocked for what we needed. Kids enjoyed the playground and pool. There was also a shed we could lock our bikes in. Very friendly hosts. Would definitely visit again.

I couldn't recommend this wonderful motel enough. If you want a location a little out of the hustle and bustle, somewhere quiet with stunning views, easy parking, nice walks, then this is the perfect place.This would have to be one of the best motels we've ever stayed in.

We enjoyed our stay at this acco. I've stayed there with my wife and kids (2 and 3,5). Very relaxing atmosphere. Pool and free spa, playground and located at the lake. Free wifi.

Lots of good about this place: a warm welcome, free paper, a spacious clean accommodation in a quiet lakefront spot. But the flies. Even after being warned upon arrival, and having signs in the room, it does not prepare you for the flies. We obediently closed all the windows as soon as it was time to turn on the lights,... More
