The sunset is awesome but the view of the lake is interrupted a vacant field and a prominent red hylux ute and little attempt has been made on the hotel gardens. The removal of empty beer bottle from the lawn would have helped.
High prices and poor equipment in the kitchen and pay for Internet and parking all added to a rather lack luster visit.
The three bed room unit was large and modern and may be more suited to a corporate style stay.
The local tourism bureau were most unhelpful.
