We stayed here for 2 nights in a nice unit which was well fitted out. The position was within walking distance of the town and many restaurants along a foreshore path (about 10 mins. walk). We found the bed uncomfortable but perhaps it was just that bed and not the same in other units.

My wife and I have stayed at this motel previously in room 12 and when we booked this weekend we thought that we would stay here again as we enjoyed our last stay. When we arrived we were given a queen studio (we thought the same as the last time) and upon entering the room realized that it was a...

The room offered was large with lounge (with two single beds), kitchenette, and separate bedroom with queen size bed. My room needs some loving care, nothing out of the ordinary, but does need a touch up here and there. The rear door was unlocked when I entered, which thankfully, I checked on check in. Continental breaky was basic - no...

This is a really good motel. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Tv, kitchenette and en suite bathroom - all modern and neat and tidy. Perfect position for walk along the lake and into the town centre....all the way to the Harbour. Good value for money. Highly recommend this accommodation.

We stayed for two nights mid week. The motel is a short stroll to the lakefront and a 10 minute walk to the town centre. We found the unit well appointed, clean with attention to detail such as bath robes, slippers, bath salts for the spa bath and plenty of towels and face cloths. The kitchen was well stocked with...

Our room was clean and spacious and provided us with towels and other essentials. We had a microwave in our room and a big jacuzzi tub. The beds were comfortable and the location was great. About a 3 minute walk to get a great view of the lake and about a 10-15 minute walk to the area with restaurants and...

Affordable, neat, clean and a very efficient self servicing apartment. A shared barbecue station; the house-keeping is strict about timings though; walking distance from the lake front and very nice eating joints at walking distance.
