The the best thing about this place is the view, then the service. The food was good - we had a 5 course dinner with matched wines ($200pp). It's a generous 5 courses with 3 additional little tastes that came out plus bread. The food was all prepared beautifully and the star for me was a fish dish - I... More

We stayed at the blue stone cottages just a short drive from the main hotel. The setting next to the mountains and amid Australian wildlife native and introduced is very relaxing, the cottages are also nicely fitted inside both for summer and winter with a lovely fireplace in the living room. Great place for relaxation and thinking.

We stayed here for our first night of our road trip. Unfortunately, we arrived late in the evening and had to take off early the next day, so were not able to fully appreciate the hotel and surrounding area. I had been looking forward to the dinner reservation here for quite some time, but due to an unexpected delay we... More
