We stayed for 1 night, the room was large and well appointed. The bed was comfortable and the room had good facilities. The staff were friendly and offered plenty of advice what to do. We had an upstairs room and had great views of the distant mountains and the Autumn colours of the trees. We will definitely stay here again.... More

Great motel and a great spot for a couples weekend. About a 10 min walk from town which is a great distance because it's much more quiet. Room size was really good the only downside was the footsteps you could here from upstairs. Would definitely stay here again though.

Fantastically large rooms with lots of space for the kids to run around. Beuatifuly clean and we'll maintained rooms with extra towels provided for the pools.
