The property looked old and worn out. Whilst the bathrooms had been recently renovated to a degree the whole effect wasn't overly well done. There was mould on the window sill. The bed was Ok and the heater worked well. The motel was very busy the night we stayed and the internet would not work no matter how many times we tried.

A typical 1970s drive up to the door motel. Very neutral. Slight problem in that the whole room was not level; and we gradually rolled all to one side of the bed during the night. Odd...

I thought the motel was fantastic. Great location - nice walk to the shops. Right on the lake, which is a good walk around. Staff were very friendly. Also had Netflix, which was a nice surprise. The only thing is it didn't have a digital clock radio. If I had of done my research properly I would have know this, but I didn't, other wise I would have taken my own. That is all.

Rooms were beautifully presented clean and tidy and all newish furnisheings and fittings. A more up to date bbq area would be good but might be restricted by space.

Great location near the lake and playground. Room was a good size however the carpet adjacent to the bathroom was wet and the room had a mouldy smell.
