    That it had a beautiful view and look straight across at the lake. the windows of the restaurant could open right up.

    Our small room but there again it was only $99 but I had expected it to be bigger!

    Hotel setting and proximity to lake. Value for money. Good evening meal Clean rooms

    Out dated furniture old and tiny televisionn set. Only 2 sky sport chanels available. No lake view expensive breakfast for poor quality.

    Locaton good, staff friendly

    The location is very good and the staff were very friendly,

    We found a dirty cleaning cloth left in the middle of the bathroom floor when we arrived

  • Group of friends

    The hotel wasn't well insulated so noise seemed to travel within the hotel, I was woken a number of times by people walking around, floorboard noise etc

  • Older travelers

    In that it was family owned. It was nice to meet the daughter and parents (particularly the father), who were the new owners and as such were learning the business (with help from previous owners). The father and daughter made us feel very welcome sharing their experiences with us and indicating their interest in where we were from.

    Although size of the room was adequate for two people, staying one night, it seemed somewhat small based on our experience staying in other places for longer periods.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Furnishings and design of facility is very good. Good to have access to sky tv and free Wi-Fi. On-site bar and restaurant is convenient. Toiletries, linen and other room comforts were ample.

    Restaurant was closed that night, 'cos the chef had his day off??? No air-con in room, which did get a bit hot at night. Wi-Fi reception was average, struggled at first - no instructions from staff on how to connect to free Wi-Fi.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Clean, nice pleasant staff, nice bar & restaurant - meals a little pricey so we didn't eat there, but then again the view was beautiful.

    The tea/coffee making facilities in room were poor, we had to boil the kettle on the floor as there were nowhere to safely boil it! We couldn't take a snack into the room as there were no crockery. Maybe we expected more from the advert on the internet, but overall it was basic and budget.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    The staff were really friendly and helpful! Went over and above what I would have expected!

    Room was a bit small but it was the economy room so fair enough.

  • Couple
    5.8

    The location in front of the lake

    Limited options for bar and coffeteria service; no enough parking space for all guests; small and uncomfortable room; expensive paid internet connection; noisy very old 14" TV; desperately need a renovation.

  • Couple
    8.2

    The staff on check in and check out was very good

    There was no chef at the time of our stay so we couldn't use the restaurant
