First of all this is a stunning historic building completed by a bold design statement with its refurbishment.
The welcome is outstanding and the facilities impeccable with a strong Japanese touch. During the weekend we staid, there was absolutely no noise from the street and one could sleep windows open. For light sleepers consider the garden room with its private patio, but having only a shower. Initially I reserved this, but found the rooms on the floors more interesting.
Flower arrangements, amenities like top quality soaps and luxury linens complete the place.
Except on Saturdays, dining is for in house guests only, but cooked to perfection with an interesting and value for money wine list: Ever tried a local Amarone (from Financial Creek) ? Fantastic !
Their Saturday dinner was less inimate, but still a very pleasant social event.
Breakfast is the best I ever had in Australia. Try the bento box with fruit and granola and the daily egg special. The orange is freshly squeezed, thing you only get in Australia when you go into the kitchen with a gun:-)
This is an outstanding property of high Relais & Châteaux quality level and excellent value for money. Most highly recommended.More
