Editor's Review

 The Lake 'n' River resort is a great find on the Munroe Island. It enjoys a peaceful environment and the location of the resort is simply fantastic. The hosts are friendly and the chef has some good tricks up his sleeve. The restaurant service may not be of a very high standard but it’s good enough. The rooms are quite comfortable offering beautiful views of the lake. You cannot go to this resort expecting luxury hotel standards but you can expect a completely relaxing stay.


  • Amazing location on the banks of the lake.
  • Skilled chef showing good magic tricks.
  • Tranquil environment with natural beauty.
  • Comfortable rooms with nice balconies.

  • The services at the restaurant can be improved.
