2/5 Poor

Business traveller
Disliked: Staff & service
More of a fishing cabin than motel.
Check in was a nightmare no one there when I arrived so waited about 10min. A guy walks past and told me someone was coming while the guy stood 20 mtrs away chatting to a mate about his car for another 10 min. Finally someone came out to help and was apologetic about him. So I assume this was a once off issue. Not somewhere I would ever stay again but it was the last available place at its price in town. Shower is very tight and everything is a little old and worn out. I had to call reception to get them to turn off a high pitched beeping sound outside the room which would keep you awake all night if I didn’t complain. On the plus side excellent room heating and electric blanket on the bed. Would be great if you were there for a fishing holiday with the boys as lake is right over the road.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The check in process was simple and easy and we were fortunate to be able to check in early at no extra cost. Great location on lakeside that obviously comes with good views. The room and its facilities are out of date but fit purpose. However, the shower is very tight. Overall, we enjoyed our stay as it provided us with what we needed for our over night visit.
