Initially the customer service was good, the price was good, but found the fridge needs to be replaced and the walls need to ne painted. Although I bring my own body wash and bubbles for the bath, they could of at least had something for the bath. Other than that the scenery was beautiful. Definitely impressed.

Overall it was a very nice place to stay, the lake view room we stayed in was perfect and the staff were all very nice. There was plenty of free ammenities (Tea,coffee,milk Gym and spa pool.) and the continental breakfast buffet option was a really convenient way to eat in the morning without driving into town. There was a hiccup with the breakfast option not showing up on their system as we had booked on Expedia so I’d recommend checking with the staff on check in to avoid any confusion. The only other slight issue would be the room we stayed in the walls were quite thin and we could hear what was going on in the rooms next to us and above even, but it wasn’t that much of a issue because we had good neighbours. We will definitely come back again!
