Feed Back
View of lake was fantastic. Bed was average comfort. There were ducks out on patio and duck poo everywhere. The motel was a construction site and very noisy from 7.00am. It would have been polite to notify guests. Andrew - the receptionist / manager was friendly and helpful.

10/10 Exceptional

Had to park out on the street two nights in a row - I think the building workers had priority utilizing the parking spots - Unfortunately one of those nights were in the "rain bomb" period - Jumped into the shower after I ran back to my room - I'm going back to Belmont in a month. Don't think I will book there again until after the building additions are completed

2/10 Poor

The room was old and poorly fitted out and not very clean . The bed was very uncomfortable. There were major renovations taking place that we were not made aware of. Metal shaving blowing onto our car. We actually seen a big dog walking in and out of a room. It was so bad we were booked and paid for three nights and only stayed for two. Photos on line are fake and nothing like reality
