Lovely clean well thought out amenities. Catered for adults & kids which was great as we were a part of a group of 16. Very friendly & helpful staff that went out of their way to ensure we were happy.

Due to a mix up at our original accom booking, we ended up here for a few nights in a 2 br unit. Sweet as room with large balcony overlooking the lake and up to the Remarkables. Would stay here again if the price is right.

This place was a gem! Great service, lovely rooms and fabulous location. We were within walking distance to everything and the staff helped organise a shuttle. Would definitely stay here again. Noise was not an issue.

Booking was the easy part. Just wait until you try and change anything. Impossible to deal with, I lost track of how many people I got put through to, and still my request was not sorted. You could hear the guests in the next room whispering, the walls / doors were not sound-proofed at all.

Hi Grant, Appreciate you for letting us know about your recent experience, but obviously disappointing to read of its nature. With looking into your situation I believe you were requesting a different room type but unfortunately we were unable to provide this as they had been booked out earlier by other guests, we could have accommodated your request however you...

There were 7 of us staying the weekend with a range of rooms from standard, studio, and 2 bedroom suites. All were spacious clean and offered fantastic views. There is no lobby bar or restaurant like other hotels of its size but that didn't affect our stay at all. Breakfast looked good, but we opted to eat out. Plenty of... More

Great views and location as it was a quick walk to the restaurants and shops. The bed was very comfy but we were disappointed as we presumed that there would be free wifi. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the facilities were clean.

Great views and location. Easy 5-10 minute walk to the restaurants/shops. Lake across the road and lovely mountain views. Very disappointed that there was no free wifi offered considering the cost of rooms/apartments. Peppers Beacon need to come to the party on this point!

Don't fall for the trap of getting a single room. We made that mistake and got a NYC sized tiny bedroom, no space for luggage, no chair, just a bed, no points from which to charge phones except right beside the sink in the bathroom, very open and not at all private. No heating control to prevent the room overheating... More
