The Hotel was very central to both the pool and the shops. The staff are super friendly and are extremely helpful. Thank you for a most enjoyable Masters Waterpolo Tournament. The breakfasts was really delicious.

Quarry Lake Inn continues to keep their standards at an exceptional level. I have been staying here for over 10 yrs because of their service and commitment to our environmental challenges. The upgrade of water storage containers and the use thereof is impressive.

Dear Guest, Thankyou for taking the time to review us. So glad you enjoyed the views and location. JUst to mention that we do daily room checks and have picked up on the aircon-noise which has been sorted out, and indeed we could have done this earlier for you if reported .
