Pros - Enjoyable stay, particularly enjoyed the outdoor BBQ area and watching local birdlife. - Plenty of space for group of 10. - Air con throughout property was extremely efficient. - Chosen for close location to many wineries. Cons - Rural setting compromised by being right next to owner's trailer/home and large amount of parked trailers/caravans/etc about 5 metres away...

Aggressive and unfriendly owners lived in an 'abode' (shed?) 5 metres from the house. Their equally unfriendly dog wandered over each morning to leave its 'gifts' adjacent to the BBQ area. As if that wasn't enough, the house was filled with passive aggressive (or perhaps just overtly aggressive!) notes, including in the bathroom warning- "DO NOT use the spa as...

We booked the stay through another agency and they advised that we will receive a 'code' to check in. This would imply the place is secure with an alarm - but what we got was a place where the owner lives 100m away from the place. We felt like we were watched and on the second day of our stay...

Two families (4 adults and 5 kids all under 8) from Sydney stayed over a weekend in April to attend a wedding at the "Hunter". Pat and Mark were excellent hosts. The cottage was well equipped and very kid friendly. It had a real rustic feel to it which is what initially drew us to the place. The kids loved...

Just got back from staying at the Lovedale Country Lodge and had an absolutely lovely time. There were 3 couples and we all had an equally beautifully "country" decorated room. The whole place was extremely clean and tidy with everything you needed. DVDs, reading material, CDs. plenty of milk, butter, condiments, gladwrap and even aerogard were just a few extras...

Soon upon arrival, there is no greeting from the landlord she instead showing us attitude. Before we confirm the booking she said everything will be provided. However when we ask for a new pack of foil (there was only tiny little bit left) she was so reluctant to give it to us. same as toilet paper! when we run out...

This place was perfect. We stayed for a girls weekend and the size was perfect for us all to be together. It had 5 queen bedroom and 2 bathrooms, so there was plenty of room. The BBQ entertaining area was a great spot to sit back and relax. The location of the property was just far enough out to be...

Our trip was almost entirely spoiled by the owners of this property. They tried to charge us more than they quoted once we arrived at the property although we had confirmed numbers and rooms required when booking. Also there own brochures had the original price they had quoted us as the price for a weekend stay!?! After abusing myself and...

Over the course of a three day weekend there were ten adults staying. We were the "groom" side of a wedding party. On arrival we were met by the owners who have an adjacent place - close but not too close! The large lodge has five bedrooms and two bathrooms, both with spa bath. It is a spotless venue with...
