Tai Chi Retreat

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 21 May 2017
Awesome place for a Tai Chi retreat, beautiful surroundings great bush walking trails really great large rooms for meetings, great lounge area, little nooks everywhere for spot of reading or quiet dreaming out the windows. Room spacious enough and had everything you need, really loved the wombat on the bed. I had dietary requirements and food and service was spectacular. The staff really make this place Gina was brilliant and Kathy and Sam sorry to everyone else names I couldnt remember

Reviewed 5 February 2017

Spent three days here for work. Location is beautiful although the dirt road going in is a bit hairy if you meet a car coming the other way! Rooms are clean but small. Conference facilities and meeting rooms fantastic but the ongoing issues with Wi-Fi connection were terrible and made work difficult. Staff were friendly and happy to oblige requests. The dinners were a highlight so kudos to the chef. Bring everything you need because shops aren't close by but the serenity is a perfect foil for being immersed in business.

Room tip: Unless you want to pull your bags upstairs, go for a ground room adjacent to the dining room.

Hi Catherine Jodie A,

Thankyou for taking the time to review our venue.

Apologies for your Wi-Fi experience. ( very frustrating! )

I am pleased to advise we have recently upgraded our Wi-Fi to the telstra mobile network and are now receiving speeds within the National Broadband Network range.

Many Thanks, John

Love this place. We have used it on a number of occasions for business meetings. The choice of meeting rooms is great. The food is excellent and the service all round first class. It is close enough to the city to be accessible but when you are there you feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle. The actual hotel rooms are small and quite dated but comfortable. Recommended.

I stayed with a walking group for 3 days.The accommodation was comfortable, dinner was excellent and varied and best of all the staff was extremely obliging, particularly as I left 3 items of clothing hanging in the cupboard and didn't realize till 10 days after returning home When I called it was all there and was posted to me free of charge I was absolutely thrilled Many thanks to the staff couldn't ask for better service. We are returning next year.

Room tip: upstairs are quieter rooms

I stayed here for a work conference. The food was very good and varied with the staff being friendly and very helpful. The downstairs rooms have very small bathrooms and can be noisy, the upstairs rooms have larger bathrooms and are not so noisy. Great location to breathe in the country air with the bonus of not being far from the city.

Room tip: Downstairs rooms had intermittent wifi access
