Good location - close to lake and town centre, but positioned away from traffic noise. Lovely and quiet at night. Comfortable and clean, with a sunny private patio area.

Small kids area with trampoline and swings was good to entertain them for a short while. Lots of TV channels and AC was very handy in the hot summer! Good parking and service. Our unit was not super modern but clean and had everything we needed.
