We have just stayed for 2 nights and this is definitely a resort rather than a motel in my view. The location and views are unbeatable, and the rooms are very spacious and comfortable, more like a small apartment. We especially appreciated the kitchen with full size fridge as we like to travel with food and drinks. We slept so well on both nights, the bed was very comfy, and there is absolutely no road noise when you are in the room. Also the block out curtains keep it dark in the morning if you want to sleep in. It is a just a short distance to town by car, but the walk along the riverfront is lovely and only takes about 10-15 mins. We had a ground floor room with direct access from the verandah on to the lawn and about 20 steps to the water. The barbecue facilities, tables and chairs etc. which are set up around the grounds are excellent and you wouldn't find any better at a high priced resort. It was lovely to get fresh towels on our second morning, which I wasn't expecting. The staff are friendly, the price is a bargain, so all in all it deserves its No. 1 ranking for sure. We are already planning a return visit.
