Had a fabulous 2-nighter here in a 1 bedroom poolside apartment over Labour Weekend with a Grab One deal. Really felt we got just the luxury that the deal had indicated. Views from the room and balcony were exceptional making this a fab place to relax and enjoy views of the lake. From the lounge you could see the swans frolicking on the lake. You could step out onto the balcony for fresh air and enjoy the closer up view. There was access to the lake via a security gate a short distance from your room. The rooms were newish and well supplied with 2 TV's (one in the bedroom and one in the lounge), and the kitchen had everything you would need with a microwave, toaster, 2 element hot plate and fridge. The female proprietor went way above and beyond with helping to unload luggage from the car and into the unit. The website was exceptionally helpful with extra detail such as recommended places to eat out which really saved us doing the work and potentially being disappointed. Free WiFi was included and we were given four 200 mb vouchers upon arrival. I was on it a lot and never got through these so really appreciated the generosity. We were in an accessible unit so had the choice of two showers. The shower was wonderful - great water pressure and temperature. The only unpleasant surprise was the wall-mounted toilet which seemed to creak and wobble when we used it. We were a little fearful it might fly off the wall when we sat on it. Soon got used to it though. Our room was close to reception with internal access from the foyer. This made it a little noisy as kids would be playing nearby and especially as the stairwell was next to the bedroom. However, it was a very busy holiday weekend so I imagine this would be less of a problem at other times. Had a fab stay and recommend to all who are looking for a place to stay close to town with loads of comfort.
