Stayed one night. Family of 5. Room was compact but exactly what we needed. It was clean and comfortable and as the name suggests, quiet. We enjoyed ourselves and would definitely stay again. The host was also very friendly and informative.

Only stayed one night with a big group but would have gladly stayed a few days. The gardens and lawns were so well manicured giving an indication of how well the accommodation was kept. There was plenty of room outdoors for our group to enjoy our happy hour which is always a must. The area is very quiet so an...

Stayed overnight an a trip with the car club. The cabins are amazing. Spotlessly clean, very well appointed with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Also very, very quiet. The only thing you here in the morning are the birds singing. Wonderful. With the hotel just next door you can enjoy a great "Pub Food" dinner and drinks without...

We stayed overnight with a group from our car club. The rooms were very clean and ours included a double and 2 singles. Everyone was happy with their rooms. The cabins are in groups of 4, so there are 4 cabins per "house". There was an area where we could meet for Happy Hour for drinks and nibbles before dinner....

We have had a super 3 night stay here. The room was very comfortable and Paul, the owner was very helpful as were all the staff. Very convenient for the Greyhound bus stop. Pub next door does good food and is no disturbance but cooking facilities available in unit or BBQ. Only woken by other guests with an early start.

On our one night stop our group decided to eat out. The friendly staff at the van park suggested the Sleepy Hollow Hotel. The menu offers a great range and variety of meals. Our group ordered separately but all meals were delivered together. Great service and helpful advice of menu selections. A great place to dine.

We stayed 1 night in a family room. We were immediately impressed by the new, spotless and comfy feel of the room. The separate kitchenette was well equipped - plenty of cutlery, modern microwave, etc. Plenty of towels/soaps and extra blankets/pillows all provided. Lovely big bathroom, great shower, cute little vanity cupboard. Everything seemed in pristine condition. Our room/cabin was...

We enjoyed the motel, our room was more then big enough for all of us (4 adults). The motel staff where friendly and offered great advice on activities to do around the area. The hotel is a couple of blocks from the beach but it is an easy walk down and back.

Next door to pub's lounge/meals area. Seemed like a good family orientated pub. Central to both sides of the waterways with walking circuit. Room had one queen and two singles. Some offstreet parking on a first in best dressed basis.
