This cute little hotel is tidy and close to eat street which has loads of bars and restaurants. The couple running the place couldn't be more helpful, friendly and welcoming. Kids and adults spent hours in the warm pool night and day and the two mineral pools were easy to access and a great addition. Rooms are an older style...

We stayed at Aura for a couple of nights. Our hosts, Josh and Nick were wonderful and very helpful in providing information on places to visit and very professional and friendly. I would certainly recommend Aura as a place to stay. It's close to the lake, shops and restaurants.

Both Nick and Josh have done a wonderful job with this hotel. Presentation of the outside is excellent and the rooms are clean. Short walk to the best restaurants. The pools were great for tired bodies after a day on our mountain bikes. We look forward to returning soon. Thanks again Nick for your advice and directions during the week.
