Given our stay as birthday gift, nothing like description. Concrete floors, plastic chairs, small metal table one mod chair. Had to sit together on bed or use the plastic chairs. Saw no-one room tired, no comfort or luxury as a 5 star property should have. Not a hotel but a small cabin in a group in a paddock

We love this place. Easy going, relaxing and plenty of creature comforts. Great, peaceful location close to most things. This was our second visit and we will be keen to book our third. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The hosts were great.

It doesn't match the hype on their website. Low points were: 1. Zero communication: • We had to chase them up for the check-in details on the day of arrival as it was well-after the check-in time – they were very casual, just sent a text eventually. • We had emailed before our arrival to ask a question and got zero response. • No info in-room about the property and facilities - just call, they say, then don't answer so we wait for them to call back. 2. Lacked attention to detail: • Pool unkempt, cleaning equipment left in the pool. • Tired furniture/outdoor furniture dirty. Zero privacy on the balcony, • Nowhere to unpack, the only cupboard was full of ‘stuff’. • Noise travelled as it is all hard surfaces – we could hear the refrigerator buzzing on and off all night and could hear the guests next door. • The bathroom is SO disappointing, not only is the bathtub not for two, but it is also hardly big for one and is blocked partly under a bench containing double sinks. The shower has no screen (but could!) so the entire floor was soaked – the shower had poor water pressure and the extractor fan was noisy/rattling. We did not ‘think Bali’ at all. We wouldn't stay here again.

After months of being inside I booked a weekend at Tonic with my husband for his birthday. The view from the room was beautiful and peaceful, we loved watching the sun set in the afternoons we were there. The room was large and comfortable, the bathroom was generous, and the breakfast items in the fridge were a nice touch. I would recommend this place to someone looking for a romantic and relaxing getaway. Although the place was fully booked, we almost felt like we were the only ones there.

We had such a fantastic stay at Tonic this weekend. We had booked 6 of the 7 rooms available at Tonic and they were clean and comfortable. We had exclusive use of the onsite lounge which had a beautiful fireplace and a massive kitchen stocked with all the crockery you could ever need! The owners Ian and Janelle were lovely, they were hospitable, personable and approachable. The included breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We really enjoyed ourselves. This place is made for small groups like ours. I really recommend this place, it was perfect for our needs because we were able to be together with our group but we had the privacy of our own rooms and bathrooms. Thanks for a wonderful stay! We will definitely be back!!
