Built specifically for backpacker travellers, the Lakefront Lodge is situated on the shores of the lake with terrific views as far as the eye can see. It's a lovely building – made from wood and stone to blend into the landscape – and sleeps 78 in a variety of room sizes.
The lodge dormitories are either in a four-bed or six-bed configuration; many have sliding doors opening on to the veranda or the barbecue area which enjoys stunning lake views.
'The lodge has a really nice garden which is great for socialising. The communal area was nice, too, with a television and choice of DVDs.'
'The location is perfect! Just walk out of the hostel and you will be able to see the beautiful blue lake.'
'The hostel was nice and clean, and a great location for the lake which is especially amazing at night.'
