Good for a weekend retreat - and if you are into golf :) I had a meeting here and stayed overnight for the conference here. The staff is pleasant and there are a lot of services. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are in the neck of woods

This venue was good but not great. The hotel layout was different to most with the public restaurant and conference rooms on a lower level. The outlook from these areas could have been so much better if they were sited higher. Felt like being kept downstairs out of the way. The service though was what you expect from a hotel... More

We stayed in a comfortable spacious room with king size bed, large flat screen tv, heating and cooling etc very efficient. The lighting in the room and especially in the bathroom could be improved as it is very difficult to apply makeup, shave etc with the dim level of lighting in the bathroom. The checkin staff were very friendly, helpful... More

Unbelievable price, including breakfast (typical buffet from hotel and nothing to rave about but as it was part of a very low price, I am not complaining about that!) The best thing I like about this hotel is the bed. Kingsize and SO comfortable. We have stayed a few times and we think its great value, comfortable, clean and very... More

Stayed for one night and really enjoyed it. Dinner service good and the cellar wine list had some lovely wines. Buffet breakfast was busy but professional. What we liked : looking at the huge gum tree in the car park at sunset. Fresh air. Country service by locals. genuine smiles. Thanks for a great stay.

This is a large resort with excellent facilities. A quiet location and somewhat isolated. Rooms are very good with all facilities. Three stories high. Attended a convention at the Resort over a weekend and it was ideal for this. It is basically five star overall . Meals were nice when we were there.
