    This little Inn has been showing imrovement over the last couple of months. Rooms have been refurbished and the swimming pool is a most welcome sight on the very hot days. Not much available in the way of drinks but the breakfast is tasty!

    Elephant Lake Inn hotel is a must. Absolutely fabulous. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are clean and excellent breakfast. It's a small town with so much to offer. The hippo was walking around the hotel and town. Hilarious. Very good memories.

    The rooms were clean and bright. Nothing fancy but what you would expect from a three star hotel. Very quiet and accessable to the centre of town. Breakfast was lovely every day and the staff were friendly and helpful.
