I arrived very late, so didnt really experience anything other than a lovely hot shower and a comfy bed. If I have to comment on one thing only, it would be that the pillows were all equally very puffy. I prefer a more flatter pillow, so perhaps suggest that 2 flatter pillows are substituted for some puffy ones, giving more of a choice?

Warm, friendly welcome from Penny. The spacious room with great view of lake. Quiet location and easy access to everything. Would return and stay there.

Location is convenient to all areas. We had a view of the harbour and the area was quiet. The room was large and the bed was super comfortable. The bathroom was huge and we even had an undercover carpark. We would definitely stay here again.
