We had a lovely room on the top floor with a fantastic view of the lake from the balcony. The room was spacious and very clean. The hotel was well situated and just a short walk to the shops and restaurants.

Gorgeous view from the motel especially at sunrise. Road below not too busy so slept well. No more than 5-10 minutes walk from a number of restaurants and shopping possibilities in the town with the couple running it happy to help with recommendations.

The studio room we had did not have AC. It should be warm in Dec but not the hottest which is more like Jan/Feb. You should be fine.

No lifts that I'm aware of but if you emailed the Manager at the Moorings I'm sure he would be more than happy to answer any of your queries. The unit we stay in is at ground level but quite elevated so we get great views of... More
