On arrival I was given a bit of a lecture of how the receptionist had tried to call me to book in extra services but never got a response. I also felt she didn't really like that it was a Scoopon purchase and would have preferred if we paid full price! She also repeatedly told us that our Steam &... More

I spent the weekend at Authenticity and overall I enjoyed my experience there. The rooms décor is tasteful and chic; the food we had for dinner was magnificent and the service we received from the Greek waiter and Cliff at reception was delightful; Sandro, the live performer was very enjoyable too; the venue itself is absolutely beautiful and clean; We...

I bought a 2 night stay with a Groupon deal for my partners birthday. I bought it without reading the reviews and must say I was hesitant after reading some things that were written. We arrived an were originally booked in a garden room with no ensuite (which was my main concern) but we're luckily enough to be offered a... More

Stayed here two nights, first night was around 28 degrees and we were not offered a fan so we opened a window and then spend the whole night getting eaten by mozzies as the fly screens had gapes. The beds were also pretty hard and the single bed squeaked like crazy. I was there for my birthday and we had... More

My partner booked our accommodation through Living Social as a Valentines present. After being presented with my very thoughtful gift I took a trip ‘the googles’ to check out the reviews. After reading the reviews I was a little anxious that I may have to cross trenches and barbed wire to get to the toilet and shower. This was not... More

Spent a very enjoyable 3 nights and indulged in a lot of pampering....scrub, massage, facial and mud wrap. The times for our treatments was changed from our original booking (and confirmation). Dinner was delicious but it was a set menu each night and not a cheap option. Port Elliot is an easy 15 minute walk and has many interesting shops... More
