I had two nights in a large, lovely studio. While my room faced the highway, it was warm and quiet. The rom was very clean and comfortable. This resort has marvellous views, being on the lakefront and great pools. It is close to all amenities and just a short walk to dinner nearby. The managers Karen and Peter made me so welcome and Karen had lots of suggestions for restaurants and tours. Just a perfect stay.

We really enjoyed staying at The Reef Resort. Our studio had a view of the lake and we loved watching the sunset colours change. The room is fully equipped with kitchen and having a breakfast in the sunshine on the balcony was lovely. The pool is heated and they provide bathrobes and pool towels. The hotel offers bikes for hire ($5 per hour) and you can access the lakeside walk through the gate. You can walk to Two Mile Sailing Club for a pizza and a beer. It is only a 15 minute walk and it is a place with a great vibe. We were thinking whether to choose the Millennium or Reef and I am happy that we made this choice as the Millennium looks quite dated and different from the photos.

The room was very nice, with easy access to the heated pool, there was also access to the lake. The little details made the unit nice, and it was very attractively set up. There were towels available to use at the pool. Our room was very quiet, the pool was great, because although it is summer the weather was not very warm so great to have a pool that is heated well. The plants around the pool also added to the place. Everything was immaculately presented.

We stayed here for one night, 5th November. We were warmly greeted at reception and given helpful information. Our room was a luxury studio with a balcony and lovely a view. The suite was well appointed and spotless. The bed was very comfortable. We especially enjoyed the thoughtful addition of fluffy bathrobes to wear over our togs for the short walk to the pool area. The property is set up so that the walk to the pools is through a very pleasant internal atrium type area that leads to the outside, just by the pools. This is where it gets even better! When they say heated outdoor pools, they mean it. Even on a miserable day, the large covered spa pool was simply delightful and the main pool was warm (for this cold fish). The spa has a little water feature that regularly sends a waterfall of heated water to maintain the temperature. I think from memory the main pool was heated at 36 degrees and the spa 39 degrees. We had a flat walk right alongside the lake to breakfast in the main township area- about a 20-30 minute walk. However there were eating options closer if that is more your thing. Thank you Reef Resort for a great start to our little road trip!
