An old favourite
A budget motel that has become a bit aged, but still good value for money. We really enjoy the private mineral pool. It is located handily to the lake and to the township.

Staff at check-in was fab. Down to Earth and excellent customer service. Nice mineral pools. Rooms better then reviews. Downfall is housekeeping only provide a clean towels. Don’t take the rubbish etc, don’t service the rooms just pop a towel on the bed. Motel kitty is a absolute cutie and a bonus though :)
