We were shown the individual huts and they are breathtaking. Big bay windows for the best views, spacious, luxurious rooms and even an outside... More

From the personalised attention to my needs when making the booking to my reluctant departure, everything about The Gorge was world-class. The staff were all attentive and respectful, the food was the best I have had in a long time and the facilities have to be experienced by everyone who needs to recharge while having their relaxation needs attended to....

Breathtaking! No words can describe the phenomenal treatment we received. I was made to feel special every second of the day - the candle light dinner, rose petals and bath drenched in flowers had me in tears. Thank you to everybody from the amazing Owner/outstanding staff and the brilliant Master chef you all deserve a 7* rating. THANK YOU, THANK... More
