Our group had 4 units here between us. Our unit was on the top floor, and had much better views than the lower units. The bed in ours was a loft type up some stairs, so need to be OK with lugging cases upstairs and not much room to move once there. The ceiling also slopes, so easy to bang...

This Motel is only small with 6 rooms and the rooms are lovely, stunning views from every room and well set out, spotlessly clean and welcoming. We loved our stay and recommend to anyone wanting a quiet motel with views of the lake and close to the town ( 5 min walk to the cafe and restaurants) Manager was so...

Loved the room. Bed was awesome (we had been travelling several weeks and this was the best) view is amazing, facilities in room comfy. Close walk to restaurants and lake. Reception was so helpful with things to do and did our laundry for us!

The view is great and away from town (5 min drive). There is also a BBQ for use. The rooms were clean, fresh and very comfortable. The service was a little too hands off for me; and I really dislike those little long life milk containers provided for tea and coffee. The other thing to be aware of is street...

We absolutely loved staying at the lakeview motel. Seems they have recently renovated some interiors such as shower and bathroom. Room was clean with fantastic lake view! Kitchen does not have stovetop (microwave only) so not much cooking can be done (is to prevent food odor disturbing next person's stay) but you can use BBQ in the backyard. They offer...

Great spot to stay. A little away from the hassle and bustle of town but 10 walking gets you into the action. Open the curtains and drink in the view. Stunning. After a long day out a seat outside with a glass of wine is the perfect run down

The veiws are magnificent Love clean unit.staff very helpful The best shower and bed and pillows were great. BBQ is what used for cooking as only microwave to cook in unit. Sitting in spa looking at the views Only think people in unit above were very loud.

Lovely stay in a clean, well kept room. The best part was the beautiful view over the lake, especially at night and first thing in the morning. It was easy to organise with helpful and friendly staff even when we arrived outside office hours. Would definitely recommend.

Very good price, and absolutely spectacular views from the room. The staff were very welcoming and had provided the room to us in a pristine condition. Very comfortable bed on the mezzanine floor - and again, that view! Simply amazing! They were so accommodating too, they gave us a free late check out because it was our anniversary on the...

The staff were great, the motel was clean and very handy to shopping and restaurants. The view of the lake was really mesmerising The bedrooms were a good size and the living area had everything you could want.
