This is the second time we have stayed at The Lakes. Our family just spent 8 nights there to get away from winter down south and we enjoyed every minute of it. I have read all of these reviews each time before booking and I just don't understand some of the complaints - but perhaps we have been lucky.
Yes, the place is looking a little old but it is still in great condition. The pools and grounds are beautiful, the beds are very comfortable (although the roll-away really was only suitable for a small child), the facilities and provisions were fine. The staff are friendly.
We had some scheduled and the next day unscheduled jackhammer noise in the apartment below but it didn't last too long and maintenance has to happen. The hot water heater stopped working but it was fixed the same day.
The resort is within walking distance of a great fish and chip shop, a basic IGA and the resort itself has some essentials - as well as a small but decent selection of wine. I would definitely recommend this place to families and I will be back there myself next winter.
Yes, there are stairs. It's good exercise!
