We stayed here over New Year. We were pleasantly met with a very clean Unit which was serviced daily and midway through our stay had a full bed linen change also. The proprietors were approachable and happy to assist with any queries.

We landed here by chance for the night and we loved it! From the private mineral spring tub to the adirondack chairs on the grass facing the lake view, it was at a great price. Clean warm room, very spacious with comfy beds, full kitchen,...More

From the moment we arrived we were treated like friends. The rooms were cozy, clean and so comfortable. Our room had full lake views with great wooden furniture, perfect for dinner and a wine, we had a thermal pool in our room....

Motel located near the lake front. Rooms very spacious and comfy, with a thermal bath in each room (takes 45 minutes to fill and not comfy to sit in!). No food available at motel but could be nice in high season to use the BBQ...More

Had a nice stay at this motel, lake facing room had a lovely view. located away from the road so cant hear traffic noise. close to the lakeside walkway. abt 5 mins away from town centre. has BBQ facilities around the motel.
