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

My partner and I were initially enchanted by the beautiful grounds and charming old building, we had a very romantic room on the top floor ande were looking forward to our stay. Thankfully we only booked for one night as it was the most uncomfortable night I can remember. Being on the top floor in the middle of summer one... More

Our overall experience was good but there was a hint of "Fawlty Towers" to the whole experience. Our booking for a treatment had not been registered in the system, make sure that you get a confirming email!

I had a wonderful two night stay at Authenticity. The house was very warm and welcoming, the interior decoration elegant and appropriate - a little like a nineteenth century interpretation of classical architecture, updated sympathetically for the present day - lovely gardens that worked in well with this kind of design aesthetic. The food was just so delicious. Obviously the... More

I had a wonderful stay at Authenticity, and will definitely go back. I purchased a 3 night stay on a deals website. It was a very significant reduction on the usual rate and having stayed there I now realise what amazing value it was. The usual rate is also ok, maybe on the slightly expensive side. I had a huge...
