Cascades is just out of the town on the main road. It sits right on the lake, has its own small swimming pool and a variety of different room sizes to suit all.
It has changed hands since i was last there but the new owners are nice and approachable and the standards have not dropped.
We stayed in the small studio, which had a lovely double bed and big bathroom and a table to sit around for dinner. Even though this is there smallest room it still had cooking facilities and a fridge. Each apartment has its own parking.
There's a pc in reception, free for guests to use. There is wifi but you have to access it via a voucher which you get for free when you stay to the value of $5 worth of surfing.
Cascades is very comfy and relaxing and i believe good value for money. You can be straight out of your room and in to the lake for a swim in under a minute. Town is probably a 15 minute walk or a cheap taxi ride away. The pool is heated and is nice to relax in. They have a coin operated laundry for guests to use and also have bikes for hire.
