The hosts are lovely people and do everything they can to make your stay pleasant. The rooms are basic but the prices are good so you get what you pay for! The rooms at the back of the motel are a bit dark so I'd pay more for one on the second floor. Showers are a bit average. Breakfasts are...

I find it hard to find any fault with this motel. We were there for one night and had an executive room with spa. The room had everything you could need. The bath was enormous, the shower powerful and the supplied towels clean and plentiful. The small kitchen had everything you'd need including microwave, kettle and toaster as well as...

There is a separate living room with a pull-out sofa bed, kitchenette, spacious bathroom and bedroom. Wifi and delivered breakfast is free. The proprietors, Karen and Terry, are warm and friendly and helpful with their knowledge of...

One night layover on route north. Spacious units directly across from the Lake. It's an easy walk into town too. The owners Karen & Terry were extremely helpful and accommodating for the duration of our stay. They showed us through the apartment on arrival, ensuring we were happy etc. It was raining heavily that evening and they offered to take...

Karen and Terry Carter were fantastic from start to end. Complimentary breakfast was always on time and delicious. They went out of their way to make you feel welcome and were always there for any help (logging into internet from our phone and driving us to a party). We have never experienced service this outstanding before.

The breakfast included in the price was very nice, well cooked poached eggs, good to start the day. The owners/managers very pleasant. Even though the...

Great location by the lake, clean and well equipped. Within walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars. Staff very friendly and helpful, they even offer a complimentary shuttle service into town if needed. The price includes breakfast, a choice of continental or cooked, which is delivered to your room at your requested time slot. Great value motel.
