Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
No Wifi in the rooms despite Expedia entry that promised free Wifi. Manager claimed it was Expedia’s fault and we were left to suck it up. Luckily for us, mobile reception held up so we could watch what we wanted in the evenings. The rest of the resort was as expected. A little isolated but a nice spot on the lake with activities on site and a heated pool - great in the cooler weather!

Convenient for weddings or parties on site. Comfortable and convenient with parking right outside. Need a bit of updating and a new mattress. Most convenient location for onsite wedding. Quiet with beautiful gardens and lake views.

I enjoyed the location, amenities and proximity to the lake . Unfortunately, we couldn't use the indoor pool with my kids due to a raucous group of men drinking alcohol and swearing plus the outside bins for the property was filled with maggots.

Lake views relaxing. Two bedrooms but one bed was too bouncy. The other was a reasonable option. With Swansea-Belmont so close the on site restaurant was over-priced.
