Unclean. Outdated. Smelly rooms, stained floors. Hair in thr sink. To begin the manager is obnoxious and refuses to admit faults. This hotel is very dated and horribly furnished. Very uncomfortable beds. Extremely unclean throughout. We were missold on the website and this place is run more like a hostel than a hotel. Shared bathrooms are not ideal for anyone....

We stayed in one of the Villa's, which included a King sized bed, spa bath and kitchenette. The kitchenette was basic; with toaster, kettle, microwave and bar fridge but suitable for what we needed. The spa bath has a shower over it but no screen so there was a bit of splash. We had a couple of concerns with what...

A lovely rustic feel, off the beaten track but totally worth it for the country experience. Kangaroos hopping around on site. Place could do with a bit of an update but perfectly good condition and facilities. Friendly hostess. There were lots of activities although we didn't use these cos of other arrangements. Great for the peace and quiet!

First we made booking only for one night but place was so nice that we desided to stay other night. Hotel is perfect if you love horses and horseback riding. Our room was big and clean and we had nice big teras where we ate breakfast with birds and kangaroos.

It was not only my birthday but our first family holiday with our 4 month old baby. Upon booking the manager/owner knew we had a baby. After a long day we turned up exhausted and our baby crying as it was past his bed time. The owner was extremely rude and informed us that our room was no longer available...

HI Nikki Your experience dose not warrant to state Do not stay there. You made an online booking which was not confirmed and payment had not been taken.Between your screams and tears you said that you had phoned me and was told that there was availability and you went on line and booked.However obviously while you was on the phone...

I've travelled all over the world from high end hotels to AirBNB rentals and NEVER had a poor experience like this. Never have I had amenities and lack of transparency as this accomodation. As this was last minute, I made the mistake of using a third party site to book. Turns out the room we booked was for a shared...

HI Adam Upon arriving you made the statement that every thing was beautiful and wonderful. You had booked a standard room on line.You state that the facilities are not mentioned before you actually make the booking. This seems very odd to me and would you not do more research if this was the case. Is this the fault of the...

A positive experience. Very cosy, clean and welcoming. We went horse riding and did the tractor ride which, was very scenic. Cameron took us to feed all the animals and the children had a fun time. The horse riding was professional with great views along the way. The leaders were looking out for all the riders continuously and as I...

Please check that this place has the facilities you need before you book. The Owner means well but this place is dated and no cooking facilities in our room. When questioned about this we were offered a BBQ across the road and even then the bottle was almost empty, no utensils to cook with and the wind blew us away...

We stayed in a self-contained apartment with a double bed, bunks and single bed. All very clean. The owner was kind to allow us a last-minute change of dates due to an unforeseen issue on our side, and arranged a driver for a vineyard tour and a sunset horseback ride. Beautiful scenery and plenty of paddocks with cattle, kangaroos and...

We had plenty of opportunity to canter which is a must for me. The staff were so lovely. I highly recommend this place and will be...
