8/10 Very good

spacious unit with good lakeside location
a spacious and comfortable unit with good wifi and tv channel coverage. The lakeside view was from the ground floor so not elevated with the road in between and for the price we paid in mid week it just seemed to lack any defining feature. Ostensibly for "covid" reasons it was not serviced during our stay.

Great position on the lakefront - lovely views across the road and straight down the lake. Very clean - plenty of fresh towels - comfy bed. Has a heat pump and heated towel rail to keep everything warm.

We like the location, just cross the road to the lake. The plan of the units, with separate bedroom. Clean and comfortable. Short drive to a good choice of restaurants & cafes, also good shopping.
