Our family group of 5 couples stayed two nights to celebrate a birthday. The property is spectacular from the moment you walk in the door. Old world charm combined with eclectic decorating. The property contains everything you need; we self catered and did not need to seek out local hotels and restaurants. All the furniture and fittings were excellent quality, and we especially loved the huge candelabra in the dining room and the bar with stained glass windows and timber bar top. The art works and predominant African theme were terrific. Although the weather was cool while we were there, we still appreciated the garden with its cottage theme and large urns.
Marvellous venue - so well equipped. The character of the place is amazing. We had 5 couples staying for 3 nights and there were so many different areas to "hang out" in. The main lounge area was spacious and inviting. The dining room was incredible, so we mostly ate in.
We can highly recommend this venue.
Maldon has so much charm - a really nice break for all of us!
I booked the Eaglehawk Hotel for a girls weekend. Everything in the house is styled so perfectly, it feels homey but plenty of room for everyone. Close to the main street. Mark was very helpful on our arrival. Couldn't have been a better weekend.
We hired the full hotel for a hens weekend with 11 ladies and it was perfect! As soon as we walked in we were in awe of the beautiful home - especially the decor and magnificent dining area. One of our most special memories of the weekend is when Richenda (yes same name as me - first time in my life!) from Miss Pritchard's Pantry came and cooked a delicious meal for us. At $40 per head, it was an incredible feast that she made quickly and we enjoyed sitting on the beautiful long table with incredible chandelier above our heads. This house has EVERYTHING (yes everything!) you need to accomodate a group, a beautiful outdoor area and comfy beds. It was perfect too because Ken and Mark accommodated early check-in and late check out - they made all the beds individual instead of single. Seriously, no complaints except that it took a while to figure the coffee machine out (but still it worked and made great coffee). If you have the opportunity to stay here with a group - don't go anywhere else.
We stayed at this newly renovated property last week-end and enjoyed it immensely. Everything is new, different and designed for comfort. Fabulous dining room with a huge light fitting (if you can call such a unique piece a light fitting). It gives the feel of dining somewhere very exotic. The dining table seats 16 confortably and the decor is so different, it needs a while for it all to sink in. Everywhere there are quirky paintings.
Bedrooms and bathrooms were spotless and very comfortable. There is a large conservatory/sitting room leading to a gorgeous garden and undercover area. A wood fire pizza oven adds to the dining options.
Ken and Mark, the new owners are switched on abd work hard to ensure a 5 star experience. By the time we left, we were planning our next stay.
