We stayed for just one night and booked the spa package which included a 2-course dinner for 2 in their restaurant (see separate food review) and a continental breakfast ($10 pp extra for hot breakfast). It was fully booked for the weekend of our Anniversary due to the bookings already taken for wedding guests. We were lucky to book one... More

We stayed over one night and enjoyed the accommodation. The Spa suite was ample in size and nice inside. The grounds are lovely and kept too a high standerd. The restaurant is lovely ( separate review). Overall a nice get away and venue. Good for a Birthday or Romantic stop over with dining available. We enjoyed ourselves : )

We had a discount voucher for Serafino's and had the most wonderful time. Dinner was beautiful and probably one of the best restaurants that I have eaten at. It is very rare that I could not finish a meal but the cooked breakfast was so large that I had to leave a piece of bacon on my plate. The lawns,... More

Visited here today on the recommendation of our hotel manager. Initially hesitant due to the grand surrounds and huge buildings, we had the very best cellar door experience. Looked after brilliantly by the vivacious Czechoslovakian behind the counter, Bozena, we ended up drinking beautiful reds with the owner, Steve Maglieri, and having a most brilliant time. If Reasonably-priced, top quality... More

My wife and I have stayed at the resort on many occasions. We can recommend the facility, restaurant and friendly staff which is outstanding. The food in the dining room is mouth watering including the cooked breakfast at a peaceful location. The Geese on the lake are an added bonus. A must place to visit in South Australia. Trevor &...

We arrived an hour before official check-in time but the staff were able to give us our room early. The room was large and clean though it is not the most modern in terms of décor.
