The room was clean, but not the floor. A firm bed ,very good sheets, but unpleasant cooking odours, window catches broken, light bulbs missing and an unwashed marked bath towel and no bath mat. Would not stay again.

Very friendly manager and staff, quiet and spacious and great location not far from the lake with all the facilities you need. Loved the inexpensive upgrade. Could easily have stayed longer - alas we had to move on.
