Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely a 10 out of 10 for The Ranch. Stayed for three nights in a cabin with my two young grandchildren. They filled their days with horse riding and other holiday camp activities. Simply a great experience for the children. Thanks to all the amazing staff. Would definitely go back.

This was a surprise for my husband - what a pleasant surprise. Each and every staff member went above and beyond for my family to make us feel welcome and included - I cannot thank the staff members enough for really making it extra special for my kids - The chick that was on Saturday who took us rock climbing, archery and assisted in mountain boarding on the 23rd sept 23 - you are epic! and the chick who took my boy (and girl) for fundamentals on sunday morning even tho he was super shy - I think your his first love 🤣

you all were just so kind and welcoming - there is always one cranky karen but not at The Ranch

What a fantastic experience. The facilities are great and the staff could not be friendlier. Nothing was too much trouble and we loved it. The horse riding instructors and workers were so lovely and knowledgeable and truly loved what they do. The horses were so beautifully cared for. I would definitely return and have already told others to check it out.

We had an amazing time at The Ranch over Easter. This is now our second year returning for Easter long weekend. We stayed in the weekender (sleeps 10, 2 x ensuites and small lounge area). Kids had an absolute ball - horse riding, rock climbing, leap of faith, tennis, basketball, swimming, Easter egg hunt Sunday morning. The hosts and general staff are very friendly, accommodating and fabulous with children. The horses are in amazing condition. Highly recommend!

A wonderful place to relax and unwind. The ambience is amazing!!! Had the most amazing weekend. Waking up to the beautiful sunrise with the trees rustling in the breeze is bliss at the Ranch. I could sit on the verandah and gaze for hours and never feel bored. The cabins are so cosy and comfortable. The Ranch is going to be my holiday home for a long time. Thanks to the Ranch team.

The Ranch is an amazing place for a family vacation. Absolutely loved the animals onsite, the sprawling views, and the swimming pool. We stayed in a deluxe cabin which was very clean & had an excellent view from the bedroom window. The staff are extremely helpful & friendly, specifically Kathy, who checked us in. I can't say enough good things about this place! We will definitely be back.

I am absolutely APPALLED!!!
We went away for a birthday weekend away, expecting a relaxing weekend but let me tell you it was anything but that! First off never get the “deluxe” cabin, it is an extra $50 a night and the only “upgrade” is the bathroom which is made up of cheep, crappy material. The towel rack broke as soon as a towel was placed on it and the bathroom seat broke before the end of the night. There were no plates nor cutlery in our cabin and we had to go up and ask for the replacements and then carry them back ourselves. One of our family friends were in the original cabin and they had a better experience than any of us!!! And for god sakes don’t have a baby accidentally spew on a crappy 10 year old bed sheet because it’ll cost you around $250. (We left the sheets outside on the grass and cleaned to the best of our ability with the minimal cleaning supplies that were available in the cabin)
My family and I are absolutely appalled with the handling of the situation and our stay at Ace High.
We have been coming here for over 30 years and have never had a problem however the value for money at this place has dramatically gone downhill! The beginners ride whilst very expensive at $90 for 45 minutes it that was very boring and definitely not worth the money. If we could do our time over we would definitely take our money and use it elsewhere!
