I booked one of the 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom villas for my family plus grandparents to stay for a 2 night trip. The villa was much more spacious than I expected, the size of a small house. Views from the generous outdoor furniture on the deck overlooking the pond were lovely.

Friendly, helpful staff and large room which was clean and tidy. Best thing about this was its location to everything else. Only minor negative was that there was no air conditioning but could open windows and there was a fan in the room.

Dear paulashdowne Thanks for posting a review on Tripadvisor. We really appreciate your feedback. We are truly sorry for any inconvenience caused by the lack of proper air conditioning in the room.We would ideally like to have air conditioning in the hotel but have not yet found the right solution to this challenge. The hotel itself is 85 years old and is a Heritage listed building which means that there are certain restrictions and conditions to be followed. This has made it quite challenging to find the right balance between maintaining the integrity and character of the building while meeting the expectations of our guests in terms of air conditioning. We are working through various options and hope to have an air conditioning solution in place for next summer. paulashdowne, thanks again for your feedback and we are glad that you enjoyed the rest of your stay. Best regards, Duncan Mackenzie General Manager
