The serviced houses are great for family stay. Excellent view. Friendly staff at the check in. Internet is free - slow and laggy but the rest was excellent. Our house we were 7 pax and were very comfortable. Beds great.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights over the NYE period and stayed in a lodge room. We were a bit disappointed in the room as it was quite outdated and little things such as bottled water and a mini bar were not available....More

Thank you for your feedback. I will be forwarding your comments to our Cafe Management to rectify all issues above as we want to improve our food quality and service in the Cafe/Winery.

Reviewed 31 December 2017 via mobile

The resort definitely seems to be surviving on a now, outdated, image of a good quality place to eat & stay. The meal was certainly overpriced in comparison to what is expected at the $40 for a main level. I would have valued it more...More
