10/10 Exceptional

The couple at reception were friendly and welcoming; we booked the garden view room but they upgraded us to the waterfront view room free of charge. The rooms were a bit outdated but were clean and comfortable. The property was close to other convenient amentities such as cafes and shops, and there was parking on-side. Would stay there again.

6/10 Good

Average
The location next to the lake is fantastic with beautiful views and a little jetty out the back for a spot of fishing, but it's also next to the main road which makes it fairly noisy during rush hour. Service was very friendly and accommodating, but the room is very dated (originally from the 1970s probably) with a few random features modernised, most probably because they had to be. Bed was old and well worn and not that comfortable, but it was okay for one night.
