CountryPlace are a terrible organisation. They cancelled our event weeks in advance and then would not refund any of our money, even the money for food, wages and utilities that they didn't have to spend. No ethics. Stay elsewhere.

Staff were great, food was generous and tasty, rooms average but adequate and the gardens and surrounds were really, really pleasant. The whole experience was let down by terrible Wi-Fi and no phone signal for Optus (Telstra ok, apparently). I've stayed in remote pacific islands with much better wifi. The main dining room was ok, but absolutely no internet in many of the rooms. This was reported to hotel staff and I was told they would look into it. No improvement some days later. It's difficult to recommend a location with no phone signal and terrible wifi. This will cost Country Place business in the long term, I'm sure. Another minor complaint is the small tvs are mounted toward ceiling height and watching TV strains the neck.

An excellent place! I loved every minute of my 5 days and nights at The Country Place. Tranquility of nature and warm, friendly staff. The food was absolutely gorgeous! I have a rather difficult diet to accommodate, and largely for health reasons; the chef team were absolutely wonderful, with every meal and dessert prepared with care and accommodated what I needed. Impressive and beyond expectations. My heartfelt gratitude to the team! Preet Kalsi, from Malaysia

I highly recommend Countryplace, providing a picturesque and comfy place to stay for both relaxation and events. The food is to die for, absolutely yummy. The staff are professional, attentive and friendly, happily sharing in a laugh or two. Nothing is too much trouble, as demonstrated when a guest announced a long list of dietary requirements right as dinner was being served. Not a beat was missed, as staff quickly and thoughtfully sorted out the meal for this guest. I’m looking forward to returning soon for our fourth visit. Thank you for another pleasurable stay at Countryplace.

THe beautiful surrounds of the country place is the perfect location for conferences and training events. The staff were helpful and friendly, able to assist with all needs including technology and special dietary needs, only too happy to help. The surroundings are perfect for walks in the break times and just a pleasure to experience, a great place to unwind. We didn't stay in the rooms overnight but the entire place looked well looked after, clean and beautiful décor a lovely place is the country place. Ample parking onsite but no wheel chair access
