Upon arriving at the Lakeland Resort, I was greeted very warmly by the lady at reception. She made me feel very welcome. Was showed where my room was and I was very happy with my room. It was spacious, had exactly what I was after, especially after a long day of driving. Bed was so comfy and also the shower had great pressure. The breakfast was awesome ( if you love hash browns - theirs are superb !! ). Will definitely be back
