We booked all 6 rooms and the cottage for 2 nights for our sons' wedding late January. The ceremony was held on site near the dam and as there were only 15 of us all told, we enjoyed a lovely evening on the deck outside the pool area. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spacious with additional sofa and armchairs, television, bar fridge, ensuite and air conditioning. The bed and pillows were super comfortable and everything was immaculately clean. A nice touch was the complimentary cheese plate and bottle of wine and also the brownies the following day. The grounds are beautifully manicured and large enough for a stroll around and the quietness added to the ambience, instant relaxation! Donna and Stuart the new owners were the perfect hosts and were so warm and friendly to us all, as were Emile and Soxie, the resident four legged staff members. We enjoyed breakfast both mornings in the pavilion, near the pool. A range of cereals, fruits, bircher muesli, fresh honey, baked pears (to die for), fruit compotes,toast, pastries, croissants, jams, (egg burritos as well on Sunday morning) and an espresso machine made for a terrific breakfast. Will definitely return and can only say you do yourself a favour and enjoy a stay here. An easy 2 1/2 hour drive from Sydney and 45 mins from Newcastle.
