As always it's a lovely setting but we had to argue with the Check to get chips with the adult meals as he initially would only do them with the children's meal. We asked the lovely waitress to request chips rather than potatoes but the...More

As far as I know Trout Tree is only a restaurant. I do not think you can stay there. However there is a lodge nearby on the slopes of Mt K where you can stay and go trout fishing. It is called Ragati Lodge.

I do, but this site will not allow me to post the link to my Flickr album, and I'm not going to post my email address on a public forum. I'll edit my review and add them there.
