Friendly staff on check in. But when we opened our room it smelt very musty or like old stale beer and did not go away. There was no fridge or tv in the room which you could probably expect with the price paid. The bathroom was very good and recently renovated.

Stayed in a twin room with a shared bathroom. Facilities were clean and all that was needed for budget accommodation. Only complaint is that the room is kind of small but not an issue for one night. Would stay here again. The location on the water and near the town center was good.

Clean and tidy, helpful staff. Parts of the property seemed a little old and could do with updating, but it is comfortable and adequate.

Fabulous location

Lovely place to rest between tramping trips. It provided everything we needed and is so close to services. Across Road from the lake too!
