My wife and I have just returned from a weekend at Peppers and loved it. The ambience is cozy and comfortable, the grounds beautifully kept and the staff welcoming and friendly, particularly Shane who's warm approach and advice on food and wine choices made the weekend a delight. Don't let this man go! The food was exceptional and we would... More

A hotel in the middle of nowhere for senior citizens, who love golf. Strong points: - Has golf grounds - Has nice gas fireplaces in the lobby Weaknesses: - Was very cold in the room and bathroom. Got better after A/C was working on heating mode for about 10 hours. - No gym, no sauna, no pool. - Wifi speed... More

Our first impression driving into the entrance was grand surrounding and beautiful scenery. Our Elms Wing Room is located in the 'old' block - it is a full size room with all the full features with magnificent view looking at the back. We had dinner and full buffet breakfast in the Montfort's dining room and the food is GREAT. The... More

This was the venue for a residential conference. Facilities for the conference were excellent; the Fitzroy room was light and looked out over lovely gardens. Lots of break out space....which we used even though it was very cold. Food and service were excellent and even though there was a wedding party there as well there was still plenty of space... More

After reading some of the negative reviews about the hotel, we were very nervous about our stay. But we were pleasantly surprised with a wonderful hotel! We stayed in a balcony room towards the front of the building which was very generous in size and extremely comfortable. While the bathroom was small, it didn't matter for our short stay. The...

Stayed for one night in an Elm Wing room which was spotlessly clean and more than adequate. The lounge areas are huge, warm and comfortable. The country style breakfast had everything imaginable and the Chef should be proud of the first class quality of the food produced in his kitchen. All of the staff were outstanding and their help made... More

This small hotel is perfect for a short stay, especially if you are a golfer. Lovely green surrounds and great lounge areas with open fires. The food is excellent and the rooms, although compact (especially the bathroom) are very comfortable. Wifi is available and the staff are very helpful.

This is a really lovely looking property in a great location with beautiful public areas and great open spaces. The lounge areas and dining room are particularly lovely for a relax dinner by the fire or an la carte meal, and the grounds give you loads of room to roam.
