Unit was very small, very limited facilities, stains on the carpet, tired furniture. I would have expected to pay half the priced we were charged for this property. We had a partial veiw of the lake but feel the partial veiw did not warrant the unit cost. Very disappointed.

The villa we were in was fab: cozy, plenty of space for everyone, and had a great view. The only thing I didn't like is that sheets were used as a duvet cover, instead of an actual duvet cover. The breakfast buffet was pretty standard for a hotel breakfast but the pizzas we had for dinner weren't amazing. We did enjoy our stay though, and would definitely go back (this was our second stay).

I stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment with Lake view. Full kitchen, with fridge, oven, hobs, dishwasher. Dining table, couch, 2 armchairs and flat screen TV. Smaller TV in bedroom. Bathroom has separate bath and walk in tiled shower. High spec but a bit worn now. Small balcony with stunning lake view. You can hear traffic but ok for me. Stair access only. Plenty of free outdoor parking. I stay here at least once a year and enjoy the location, view, and apartment

We had a 2 bdrm mountain view over Anzac weekend. Apartment was huge with lovely view, and quite sunny. Was great having a buffet breakfast, which we really enjoyed. The restaurant is lovely and sunny and looks over a little lake. Probably the quietest sleep we have ever had. Although the place was pretty full looking, it was absolutely silent at night. Heard no cars, no people, no doors, no screaming kids, so we had a fantastic sleep and lie in. Loved the comfy King bed as well. The shower had great pressure.
