    I truly enjoyed my stay. The staff is very friendly and check-in process has been super smooth. The room is very clean and tidy (I am bit of a clean freak), spacious and comfortable. It feels homely and relaxing, especially with a little balcony. It's a lovely walk from the motel to city Centre along the lake.

    There are three things my mum and I do hope to see improvements/changes when we visit next time: 1. Shower. Although there is a spa in the bathroom, but the shower (shower-head) itself is very old, and the water flow is super soft and slow. 2. Ventilation fan inside the bathroom is super loud! We can barely hear each other talking with the fan on! Plus it's not very enjoyable listening to the noisy fan when I was hoping to have a nice relaxing spa... 3. Wi-Fi is very slow. I was trying to show my mum a music video (approx 3-4 minutes). The video stopped in 5 seconds as it stopped loading. Luckily I had enough roaming data on my phone and I didn't need internet to work, otherwise it would have been quite frustrating with such slow Wi-Fi.

    For the price could not fault it, Comfy bed, very clean catered for everything and plenty of cafes in flat walking distance, amazing view across road to lake & mountains, great aircon & was lovely & warm when we got there, extra blanket if required. Easy to book online and they were all ready for us.
