Liked · The location is fab with your room having access to the lake direct and the motel’s cafe if you get to have food Disliked · - Service level wasn’t great- You need to make a few trips for tissue papers , toiletries, coffee-milk sachets etc. - The room wall is thin so you can hear the other room- Rooms aren’t fancy and may need upgrade-The lack of a separate sink in the room is felt as you have a small sink to brush teeth, shave, wash dishes, groom yourself- Filling water itself is annoying as the sink is too small to have you fill some water

We stayed at the motel on our way to Robe. The motel rooms are dated, but very clean. The beds are very comfortable. We had a room looking onto the lake and views are great. The restaurant is located right on the lake and very pleasant. Charmaine and Mark were wonderful hosts. The place is very good value.

My partner and I decided to stay here as I’m working on a dairy farm nearby. The waterfront room was sparkling white and very clean. Excellent view of the lake, and excellent service. I can’t fault this place.
